Why You Need a Hotel Website Blog

SEO

hotel_seoThe first benefit to running a blog for your hotel website is SEO. As a hotel digital marketing agency, we love SEO. With the right optimisation, you can raise your official hotel website from the end of Google search results, right to the top (and then reap the rewards of more direct bookings along the way!)

With each blog post you commit to your hotel website blog, you increase your keywords, can potentially earn backlinks to improve your website ranking and spread your posts through social media. While building your hotel SEO you are also throwing out hooks across the online world – and each one of those is an opportunity to receive more bookings.

Branding

Your hotel website blog grants you the ability to be creative and showcase the unique character of your property. Whether you’re leaning towards corporate travellers or leisure guests – it is one more chance for you to promote your hotel’s image in the way that most attracts your ideal guest type.

You have the opportunity to share photos and videos of their property, the team, the amenities, the events they organize, your location history etc. It gives you the chance to differentiate your property from others. The more personality you demonstrate, the more potential guests are more likely to feel a connection to your property and be more inclined to book a stay. 

Credibility

Potential guests, especially those with a destination rather than a specific hotel in mind, look for credibility. They are searching for answers to guide their holiday choices and your hotel website blog offers you the chance to be that voice.

By providing valuable information about the local area, offering tips for travelers, and sharing information about the hotel’s amenities and services, your hotel can build trust with potential guests and establish yourself as a trusted local source.

Communication

Aside from any other benefits to a hotel website blog – it also provides a new manner of communicating with your guests. You create a community space where visitors can leave comments, ask questions (which in turn provides you with new hotel website blog ideas) and share feedback.

Starting Your Hotel Website Blog

Already have a website? It’s never too late to begin blogging and reap the benefits, but there are a few things that you should bear in mind.

Firstly, consider your ideal guest type. Ideally, your blog posts should be a mixture of generic, and styled towards your ideal guests. What are their interests? Why do they want a holiday in your location? Why should they stay with you?

Secondly, you need organisation. Make sure to create the content for your hotel website blog far ahead of time. We recommend using a calendar to plan the topics and frequency of your blog posts. Remember that overwhelming amounts of content isn’t productive – it’s better to be consistent and of high-quality!

Finally, your hotel should promote your hotel website blog through your website, social media channels, and email marketing campaigns. You will help spread your online presence, drive traffic to your blogs and increase visibility for your hotel.

It’s easy to start, and worthwhile in the long run. With some careful planning and promotion, your hotel can successfully launch your own blog and start reaping the benefits!
