10 smart hotel marketing strategies to increase bookings


The challenge of being in the hotel marketing industry is the overwhelming amount of competition.Here are 10 no-fail tips to hotel marketing success.

Did you know that the abandonment rate for booking hotels online is 75%?! That’s right, a whopping three out of four people start the booking process, get distracted, and abandon their experience. Who knows whether it was the pizza man interrupting their purchase, or a suspicion that they might be able to find a better deal elsewhere. Whatever the reason may be, this does not mean you should give up as a hotel marketer.
