5 Topics Hotels Can Consistently Blog About

Starting a blog to compliment 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.

How Healthcare CRM Solutions and ZDogg are Solving the Digital Divide for Providers

cc from flickr.com The healthcare industry is going through a significant transition , mostly, induced by HIT changes and system reform; in the process of these disruptive changes, thought leadership is trying to strategically develop a plan of action for reaching interoperability. Interoperability is part of the holistic solution , as it works to connect patients with providers and share EHR clinical data with them and referrals. Let's discuss this topic more by examining how healthcare CRM solutions and ZDogg are solving the digital divide between providers and patients . Defining the Digital Divide This is a term that emerged most prominently after the “meaningful use” of EMRs became a requirement for providers on January 1, 2014 . Since then, cloud and mobile computing technologies have also played a large part in the digital divide equation – mostly, trying to solve pain points with healthcare enterprise systems . To learn more, let's look at two different a

Influencer Marketing's Authentic Approach is Genuinely Profitable

Marketing demographics can be likened to waves on the sea, making it difficult to gauge the effectiveness of a marketing campaign. Although there are many different approaches and strategies to employ within advertising, influencer marketing is effective because it targets the audience that makes the difference. To expound further, let's discuss why influencer marketing's authentic approach is genuinely profitable. Getting Real with Marketing The demographics are difficult to pinpoint, because of the ever-changing people they represent. Historically the younger generations are always seemingly radical compared to their parents' generation, but in today's technologically advanced and rapidly changing cultural landscape this has never been more true. Getting real is simplifying the process of marketing, although this doesn't mean boring and bland. Rather, this means reaching the targeted audience at their level, which could very well be unreal. In other words, using i

Dallas Residents Have Medieval Times to Keep Them Entertained

cc from flickr.com One of the more fascinating attractions in Dallas, TX must be Medieval Times at the Dallas Castle , where dining out takes on an entirely new flavor of excitement. Residents living in Dallas are only minutes away from turning back the clock and having the time of their lives at Medieval Times in Dallas, TX. Dinner and a Tournament Are Only an Arrow's Flight Away! Many may remember this exalted restaurant when it was showcased in the movie "Cable Guy" starring Jim Carrey in 1996. While patrons may not actually get into the arena like the actors in the movie did, essentially, they'll be able to place a cardboard crown on their heads while they eat a meal of kings and queens and watch the two-hour tournament from front row seats, cheering in between bites and drinks of course. The meal-time tournament entertainment consists of 6 knights in shining armour jousting on real-life horses (steeds), sword fighting with real swords, and conducting the

cc from flickr.com Not every modern business is tech-savvy and proficient with digital marketing; in fact, 36% of America's small businesses don't even have a website ; and many of those that do, have nothing more than a lonely website in the shadows. While this is a good start, this type of strategy isn't going to attract many website visitors. The good news is, it doesn't take a marketing genius to start gaining traffic to a business's website, yet it does take some time and effort to develop and execute a viable digital marketing strategy.
