Instagram and the hospitality industry are a match made in heaven. Whether it comes to visuals of delicious food and beverages or panoramic travel shots, the industry will never suffer from the lack of content to entice customers.
To influence customers or make a statement, it all comes down to how your business chooses to spread brand awareness. Brands heavily boast their properties, services, and facilities through sharing images that encourage guests to book. And it is almost a must from motels to luxury resorts to shift their attention to young and highly engaged audiences.
It seems criminal now not to open an Instagram account for your business after recently surpassing Twitter’s 400 million users. The social media platform acts as an international social media hotspot that can potentially give your business greater visibility. Not only is it international, but data collected has shown that more than half of the users are young, which makes for a lucrative marketing opportunity.
Regardless we have always believed in traditional digital marketing strategies, social media is without a doubt taking the world by storm with spectacular benefits to all businesses big and small.
