Guest House marketing

At Mediahouse we understand the marketing pressures a small hotel property goes through. It's often normal to have dozens of guest houses and small hotels within a few square kilometres. Normally the main question is "How do we cut through the clutter, how do we stand out" Most times it's not even the best property that's the busiest but the one that makes the most noise!

Over the years we have dealt with hotel properties of all sizes including B&B's, Guest Houses, Boutique Hotels, Blue Chip Hotels, Island Resorts, Luxury Tented Camps and Sea Side Resorts. We therefore have extensive experince in all hospitality markets, specifically in market research and execution.
By now it's common knowledge that online is a Hotels' Nr1 gateway to new business. Searches for hotels nowadays almost always if not always begin with an online search, and mostly with Google. So what happens if you not within the first 2 pages of Google? Well you lose out, that's the hard truth. What about Facebook and Twitter? Are those important? Simply put - yes, of course they are.
Properies often tell us they don't have the time to do all this social stuff! And how will it bring them business? And how do they get on the 1st page of Google? How is this possible when as of 2014 there are 2 Billion websites?
We often also get asked about the website, should it be flashy, should it be simple, how big should it be, what should it say? Hoteliers find themselves with 100 questions on how to fit in with online marketing and how to manage it all.
The short answer is it all needs to be covered, and covered properly. It should start with a website that works, and by works we mean a website that indexes well on Google. Ad words needs to play a part of the campaign too, organic rankings are no longer good enough. Follow this up with SEO (search engine optimization) and a good social footprint and you on your way to a successful online campaign.
This is why we've devised 3 simple packages to suit your needs and budget! These packages are specifically aimed at smaller hotels which normally have a more conservative budget. We are more than happy to come to your property, sit with you and explain it all in detail. We will also research your market sector and offer advice on online strategy. 


We have also created 2 website options for your conveneince. Owning a professional website has never been easier. These packages can also be customized to suit your specific requirements.
For new websites we offer FREE domain registration.
