5 Topics Hotels Can Consistently Blog About

Starting a blog to complement a website and other digital marketing efforts is a great idea for hotels, yet what should their blogs be about? Consistently posting blogs about interesting topics sometimes isn't that easy. In an effort to help, let's discuss 5 topics hotels can consistently blog about to gain traction online.

1. Local Attractions and Destinations:

Local SEO is vitally important to gain attention from search engines, in order to stand out to prospective guests interested in staying in the hotel's local area. Blogging about local attractions gives hotels a large topic to draw upon when brainstorming blog ideas.

Even if the hotel is in a relatively isolated location or smaller town, there's always something to write about when it comes to local attractions or destinations. Restaurants, bars, nightclubs, concert halls, sports stadiums, race tracks, wilderness attractions, parks, historical sites, and more can be highlighted in a hotel's blog to attract local SEO and draw in bookings.

2. Guest Testimonials:


Think of an elaborate Google or Yelp review as a blog post with this topic. Hotels can offer members of their loyalty program a discount for writing a sincere testimonial of their hotel experience; this could include their experience at the hotel, the local area visited, and/or their travels in general – as long as the hotel is included, at least, in part.

These "guest blogs" may very well be more interesting than anything hotels could write themselves; they could be shared via social media, email lists, on the website, and elsewhere. Potential guests would appreciate the sincere testimonials of other guests and would be more likely to book a room. SEO would benefit too, as the topics and keywords would, likely, be very diverse.

3. Travel Tips:


Another consistent topic hotels could include in their blogs is travel tips. From whether to take a pillow on a road trip or use a solar-powered backpack on mountain hikes, this blog topic would generate a number of ideas.

General travel tips would be good for giving loyal customers and organic visitors valuable content to peruse, yet generating localized travel trips would help narrow the search to the hotel's actual area on the map. For instance, tips about how to enjoy local attractions or navigate the local area would be helpful for localized SEO purposes.

4. Hotel Amenities and Service Tips:


Don't forget about highlighting the hotel's amenities and services through blog posts as well. This is a great way to promote the hotel while providing valuable information for guests and prospective guests alike.

Instead of being overly promotional, blogs could talk about topics that pertain to the amenities and services they provide. For instance, a blog about the benefits of getting a massage, how to relax in a hot tub, how long to exercise in the morning, or when is the best time to enjoy the lounge, etc.

5. Hotel Events and Occasions:


The last topic hotels can blog about consistently is any events or special occasions being held in the hotel. Maybe a convention is being held for wildlife preservation, the hotel is celebrating an anniversary, or a new pool is being celebrated; any newsworthy occasion relating to the hotel can be blogged about.

These blog posts would be great for local SEO to attract bookings from organic search engine results, as well as to draw loyal customers back around to celebrate any special event or occasion at their favorite hotel.

Summary


Hotels can use their blogs effectively to reach new customers and retain existing ones, as long as they consistently post valuable content that search engines pick up on and their readers enjoy. These blog posts can be used on a hotel's website, social media channels, and email marketing lists, to gain traction with their holistic digital marketing efforts.

These 5 topics should help generate an endless amount of ideas for a hotel's blog; with relevant ideas, well-crafted posts, and a consistent effort, hotels will start seeing great results.

The Information Machine vs. the Creative Thinker

The AI-curated online world has created a new breed, yet some hold on to their creative uniqueness despite the pervasive trend. The stormtrooper gazes at the flower wondering with awe at the natural creativity found within it. The internet is conditioning human thought and behavior and creating information machines among us. These are humans who have given over to the influences of the hive mind.  The hive mind is the personification of the internet and the big data brain behind its user-friendly interfaces. The hive mind is the holistic sum of the digital age and the internet of things (IoT). On the other side of the human spectrum is the Luddite creative thinker who is detached from the influences of the hive mind, even though part of it in some measure.  The most important aspect of the creative thinker is they are not led by the influences of the hive mind, at least not overtly and consciously.  The information machine-human is keen to know the secrets of the hive mind; they obsess

Is Digital Nomadism the Pinnacle of Work?

What if it wasn’t all that great in reality? Most people working in any capacity online have heard of the term digital nomad, as this is the informal pinnacle of work in our modern world it seems. Essentially, a digital nomad is someone who can do anything they want, anywhere, anytime, and without any restrictions. It doesn’t matter what they do to make money online, as long as it gives them this freedom. Get a Real Job Kid I get it, wouldn’t it be nice to have your cake and eat it too? Wouldn’t it be nice to act like a teenager in the summertime when school is out, except having all the money and freedom you want too? Wouldn’t it be nice to not have to work a real job and just have fun all the time? The younger generations are especially enthralled with this idea of not having to work, yet having all the money they need to spend on themselves. Traveling, shopping, buying toys, doing drugs, drinking alcohol, partaking in dating games, etc. Sounds like the makings of a large spoiled chi
