Searching for hotels and booking online is already common. According to Google Spain’s Study, the internet is already a very popular shopping ecosystem for travel.
82% of travelers have bought at least one component of their trip online: transport, car rental, or accommodation. But, with almost the entire sector operating online, how can you make your product or service stand out from the crowd?
Promotions offer a great solution to this challenge, and the digital world opens up a wide range of possibilities. Prize draws, contests, games & interactive dynamics allow hotels and other accommodation to get closer to their potential customers and create a bond with them that goes beyond the occasional purchase. And according to the same report, booking accommodation in hotels or apartments is usually the 1st thing people do when organizing their holidays.
64% of the turnover in overnight stays in 2019 was from people coming from abroad, & hotels have adapted their own websites to accept online reservations, making it possible for them to obtain customers directly. But how can you attract customers to your website in the first place? There are several actions that hotels are already using on social media and digital channels to get good results.
