Marketing Program and Elements
Social Media Integration: Every property is integrated to the most prevalent and powerful social media platforms available—Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn® —to best leverage your resident referrals.
They'll be able to easily promote your properties with positive preset or original messages that can be amplified across different channels for exponential reach.
Social Media brings word-of-mouth marketing online by tapping into the vast reach of social networks.
It enables residents to promote your properties by posting a positive preset message of their choice on social networks like Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn®.
Not only will you reach hundreds or even thousands of your residents' friends, but you can do it almost instantly. Something that is nearly impossible to achieve using traditional door hanger or flyer referral campaigns.

We put heads in beds Voice to Voice:
Hotel guests still prefer to shop and book hotel rooms by speaking to a real human being. This is not because they need a price; it is because they are checking service levels at the hotel.
* Voice reservation services are a core component of your direct sales strategy not merely an afterthought.
* Conversion rates are the best measure of call center success and should be tracked and analyzed carefully.
* Voice reservation agents are an extension of the hotels sales force and should be given similar training and incentives as an inside sales force. Hospitality Sales it's what we do!
We Drive high-value customers directly to your hotel's site to increase bookings with pay-per-click (PPC) advertising campaigns.
We pay only when the consumer clicks on your ad that strategically appears on relevant websites.
PPC advertising is an extremely targeted and cost-effective use of your advertising dollars. Marketing to the World!
