How to attract and retain customers online in hospitality

March 7, 2024

Restaurant and hotel businesses often focus on a variety of marketing services to attract and retain customers, enhance their brand visibility, and ultimately drive sales.

Each business may prioritise these services differently based on their market, location, competition, and target audience.

The most effective marketing strategies are often those which are well-rounded, incorporating several of these services to reach customers across multiple touch points.

Digital Marketing

This encompasses SEO (Search Engine Optimisation), PPC (Pay-Per-Click) advertising, email marketing, and content marketing. These strategies help improve online visibility and attract targeted customers.

Social Media Marketing
Utilising platforms like Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter to engage with customers, showcase offerings, and promote brand values. Influencer marketing can also be a part of this strategy, particularly effective in these sectors.
Reputation Management
Monitoring and managing online reviews and customer feedback on platforms like TripAdvisor, Yelp, and Google My Business. Positive reviews can significantly influence potential customers.
Website Design & Optimisation
Ensuring the business’s website is visually appealing, mobile-friendly, easy to navigate, and optimised for search engines to attract and retain more customers.
Content Creation
Creating engaging content such as blogs, videos, and photos that highlight the business’s offerings, events, and unique selling propositions. This content can be used on various platforms to engage different segments of the market.
Loyalty Programs
Developing programs to reward repeat customers, encouraging them to return and potentially attract new customers through word-of-mouth.
Event Marketing
Hosting or participating in events can increase visibility and allow direct interaction with potential customers. This is particularly effective for hotels and restaurants looking to showcase their services or facilities.
Local SEO
Optimising for local search queries to capture the attention of customers searching for restaurants and hotels in their vicinity. This includes managing Google My Business listings and ensuring accurate and compelling information is available.
Email Marketing
Sending newsletters, promotions, and personalised offers to a database of past and potential customers to encourage bookings and visits.
