The power of Hotel Influencer marketing
Influencer marketing is the most powerful marketing tool of our days, as it enables hoteliers to reach out to hundreds of thousands of potential customers at a click of a button.
Influencer marketing is a form of marketing in which focus is on influential people rather than the target market as a whole. It identifies the individuals that have influence over potential buyers, and orients marketing activities around them.
Using social media influencers in your marketing is the practice of building relationships with the people who can build relationships for you. Whether an influencer’s audience is small or large, an influencer can reach consumers via their social networks that your brand may not be able to.
Influencers are highly engaged individuals that show their adventures, and experiences to their followers on social media.
