Videos: A Must In Your Marketing Plan
You as a hotelier, in this cutthroat world; must make sure that your marketing tactics are reaching to the right set of audience and are working productively towards the progress of your hotel. Always looking in for more engagement of your guests on your websites; here are some tips which you can follow.
'Online video is the Swiss army knife of internet marketing.'
Videos are the most preferred and compelling form of content on the internet these days. Holding a visual appeal, survey says that around 80% of users will watch a video rather than read text on the same topic. Besides that, having a video on YouTube will get your hotel visible on the largest search engine of internet after Google. Having a video tour of your hotel will help your guests decide and book faster with you. Watching videos on PCs, laptops, tablets and even smartphones has become increasingly popular; exposing you to myriad of guests in a jiffy.
With growing number of video searches and viewers, your hotel marketing video will be watched in all the likelihood. A good video can generate scores of genuine traffic to your hotel website, leading to hike in direct bookings.
Travelers, these days want to get the most relevant information about their stay options right away, which is why they largely rely on meta search engines and online travel agencies (OTAs). And being a hotelier, it's imperative to understand that how metasearch engines and OTAs differ from each other.
Meta Search Engines
They display the current rates of many different hotels of a particular destination.
They promote hotels in destinations across the globe, presenting their room rates, descriptions and photographs.
Example: Google, TripAdvisor, Trivago
Example: Booking.com, Agoda, Expedia
OTAs pass off as valuable partners to sell your inventory through. You can directly book from an OTA website, whereas, you cannot book from a meta search engine. That's the major difference between both of these. However, now, meta search engines like TripAdvisor and Google have started displaying instant booking buttons that allow travelers to book directly from the meta search results giving you more direct bookings. Although, the commission costs of meta search engines being lower than the OTAs proves that you cannot ignore the meta search engines completely. Whereas, without a distribution partnership with OTAs, you can be widely overlooked in the market.
Whether it's an OTA or a meta search engine, both transmit a pivotal role for hotels in all segments. A channel manager in such cases can help you automate your inventory distribution on all channels; whereas a booking engine can get bookings directed from the meta search engine results.
