Marketing a Corporate Lodging Business

The value and earning capacity of a corporate lodging business largely depends on the quality of its marketing efforts. But great marketing takes a lot more than hanging a shingle and hoping for the best.

Young business owners are often surprised to learn that marketing isn't as intuitive as they thought it would be.

But by creating a strong marketing strategy, you undergird your connection to your base. With that in mind, it's important to leverage marketing as a path toward better customer engagement in your corporate lodging business's planning process.

Directories

Directories are a common tool for finding a corporate lodging business. Directory selection is often dictated by the market when promoting corporate lodging businesses in a region or territory. Premium directories may or may not deliver the ROI you expect to receive from paid marketing vehicles. Regardless of whether it is a premium or free listing opportunity, every directory needs to be evaluated on its own merits. As consumers demonstrate a preference for online channels, make sure your listing include your company's web address and possibly even information about your social media presence.

Email Campaigns

Today's consumers are extremely tech-savvy. They rely on social media and email to both receive and transmit brand messages. What does that mean for your company? It means the odds are in favor of email campaigns actually connecting with customers. For the majority of corporate lodging businesses, the real challenge is compiling a substantive quantity of qualified email addresses. Premium mailing list providers can mitigate the cost and hassle of in-house list generation. More importantly, providers typically give business owner an assurance that their lists are accurate and up-to-date.

Industry Resources

Lone rangers don't survive long in a corporate lodging business. Most leaders are oblivious to the fact that the marketplace shows no favoritism - for every marketing challenge your business faces, there are hundreds of other businesses and leaders struggling to solve the same problem. The best resources are usually the ones that leverage industry-specific experience and the input of proven veterans.
