Evision’s New White Paper: “Social Media Strategy For Hotels”

What’s the problem with social media for hotels? “Social media has grown bigger and more useful than anyone ever thought for reaching consumers,” says Ronnie Soud, our Chief Marketing Officer. “But as a result of the increasing complexity of the channel, hotels struggle to hit that sweet spot of making the best use of social media. Many properties effectively give up before they even really get their social media campaigns going.

In fact, Evision has identified three major traps into which hotels often fall when trying to utilize social media. This white paper is our response to the problem. The first key is to implement a strategy that’s tailored to the hospitality industry, so that the strategy is effective at capturing users at all phases of the travel shopping process. The second key is to make the strategy actually doable, so that hotels can implement guidelines that keep social media efforts humming without wasting time, money, energy or effort.
