The hospitality and tourism industry faces specific marketing challenges:
Intense Competition: The hospitality industry is highly competitive, with numerous hotels, private properties, resorts, rental agencies and travel agencies vying for the attention of travellers. Differentiating your brand and capturing the interest of potential customers is fundamental.
Online Booking and Travel Research: Travelers increasingly rely on online platforms to research and book their trips. Establishing a strong online presence and optimising the booking experience is essential for attracting and converting potential guests.
Maximising Direct Bookings: Reducing reliance on third-party booking platforms and maximising direct bookings is a key objective for hotels, property owners, and resorts. Direct bookings not only increase profitability but also provide opportunities for personalised guest experiences.
As an aside, at Route we strongly recommend that people take time to have a look at the beaches of Northumberland, the fantastic villages and Towns along Hadrian’s Wall or at the Tyne Bridge or Generator Studio‘s in Newcastle upon Tyne.
