Thanks to smart phones, people are always connected wherever they go – even when they are on vacation. More than 85% percent of today’s travelers own a smart phone or tablet. More products are turning “smart” to integrate and adapt to this technological society, including hotels. These cutting-edge hotel technology trends are changing longstanding standards in the industry and allowing hoteliers to provide guests with more personalized experiences.
Part of the excitement of traveling is exploring the area, learning about the culture, and experiencing new adventures. Regardless of whether you are a local tour guide, plan multiple city itineraries, or offer adventure activities, social media (Google+, Facebook, Twitter, etc.) is a necessary tool these days. Here's what you need to know about marketing your business via social media, and in turn, increase your business.
From researching and planning the trip to sharing happy memories with family and friends, social networking has changed how people vacation. Having a solid presence on social media is imperative in the travel and tourism industry. The days of simply setting up a website for your travel business are long gone. Now, you need a creative and focused plan on how to capture and maintain your customers' interest using the power of social media.
