Promote your hotel before it opens – 9 strategies for success

Once you have your branding completed and your target audience defined, you can move forward with promoting your property. Here are 9 essential ways to begin driving demand and reservations prior to opening your door.

What good would promoting your fantastic new property be if you don’t have anywhere to drive traffic? If you have no way to collect information for future communications?

You might not have every single detail ironed out with room layouts or amenity offerings – and that’s fine. But, as soon as you have enough information related to your hotel’s concept, go ahead and secure your domain and set up your website.
