How to Market your Hotel & Restaurant in the Digital Age? (8 Practical Tips + A Case Study)

Instagram

How to Market your Hotel & Restaurant in the Digital Age?.001
It's an exciting and historic time to be in Manila, where the entire food, travel, and lifestyle industry is booming in the Social Media Capital of the World.

While the internet penetration has reached 50% in Manila, there is still a big gap with only 10% penetration of hotels and restaurants engaging in digital marketing.

Digital is not a fad, not a strategy, or not just a tool. We are in the Digital Age, which is a shift from the traditional ways of the Industrial Age. Digital is a mindset and a paradigm shift on the way we engage brand consumers and clients.

Thank you to the Hotel and Restaurant Association of the Philippines for inviting me to share my knowledge on "How to Market your Hotel and Restaurant in the Digital Age."

I received such an overwhelming appreciation of my talk that I decided to share the presentation with you.

Here are 8 practical tips and a case study to empower your business to compete in the digital age...

Mark Wiens is one of the top food travel bloggers based in Bangkok. He is the Chief Chowzter in Bangkok as part of the Foodie Hub TV Network.

He shares his latest travel meals on migrationology.com, everything about Thai food on eatingthaifood.com, and publishes food and travel videos on YouTube with over 200,000+ subscribers www.youtube.com/user/migrationology

He is set to keynote the first Blogging and Social Media Summit (BLOSOMEX) this Saturday August 8 at WOFEX, Function Room 3, 2nd Floor, SMX Convention Center, SM Mall of Asia, Pasay City.

I interviewed him to give a preview on why you should not miss his keynote this weekend:

1). What works now on the internet in 2015 and beyond?  

There are many things that work and there has never been so much opportunity to reach and connect with such a huge worldwide audience, or a highly focused audience. 

2015 is the year of online video. While online video has been popular for many years, due to the development of social media and the wider prevalence of mobile devices and better internet speeds, this is the year when video is really expanding, both with viewers and creators. In my opinion, as an online business or blogger, video must be a part of your social strategy

I also think blogging is still just as important as it has been in the last 10 years and will continue to be in the future. However, gone are the days when you can type a few words and add a photo and click publish. In order to succeed as a blogger in 2015 and beyond, you need to publish high-quality content that provides real value to readers.
