Many hotels these days are introducing pet friendly policies to allow travellers to bring their furry friends along for a memorable time.
Not only does this makes for a great company for the travellers but these furballs are happier being with their human and not being left alone.
Here are the top tips to market your pet friendly luxury hotel for a higher engagement:
1.Quality Images and videos
It is important to have good quality images and videos of your hotel supporting the arrival of pets with the guests and having a good time.
These images should normally be bright and colourful to reflect the positivity pets bring with them. It is always a good idea to use your own images than stock.
2.Dedicated Landing Page
Create a dedicated web landing page with at least 350 words of interesting, optimised content alt tagged images & links to your pet friendly packages.
Social media is the present and future for a large number of travellers these days.
Promote your pet friendly images and packages online to attract these travellers.
Apply for pet friendly awards.
You can always ask your past guests to review and vote for you in these awards via social media or email marketing.
