Social media companies wanting to help you
I occasionally receive e-mails from social media experts, asking me to hire them to advertise my guestrooms on Snapchat, Twitter, Instagram, etc.
I ignore these unsolicited offers; but I did receive one from a USA gentleman who claims he handles the social media accounts of many exclusive hotels around the world. He even sent me a 15-minute video, critiquing my personal guestroom website.
My guestroom suite is listed on Booking,com, Airbnb, Expedia, FlipKey and TripAdvisor. I use my personal website to provide more details of my property these five reservation companies cannot list on theirs. Plus, I have a Facebook page about my guestrooms.
Have any of you hosts hired a social media professional to promote your guestrooms through Twitter, Snapchat, Instagram, etc.? If yes, is this increasing your reservations and is this worth the expense?
