Hotel Marketing South East Asia

2023 Asian hotel marketing is about revenue, not about how much you invest. Your hotel in Asia has an online marketing budget, even if you don’t think so. Commissions hotels pay in Asia to online travel agents are indirect marketing.  What OTAs spend on their digital marketing to provide your bookings, you repay them in commissions, plus their margin.

Hotel marketing in Asia has an alternative to commissions hotels pay to OTAs. Investing in digital marketing your own Asian hotel website:

  • reinforces your Asia hotel brand marketing, not the OTA's

  • you won't have to spend every year for each guest. When new and repeat guests book via your Asian hotel website, you're building loyalty. Guests know your site / your contact / booking information. You know their contact information.

The scenario of diverting commissions of 10 rooms from OTAs to your own hotel marketing in Asia:
hotel marketing budget

OTAs sell your rooms @ $100 per night taking $20 commission.
Your hotel booking engine only takes $4, saving you $16. If you sold these 10 rooms directly from your own hotel site, you'd save $16 per room per day. To ensure guests book directly via your site, discount rooms $1.

$15 x 10 rooms x 365 days of the year. Your marketing budget ploughed back into your own site's web marketing for brand marketing and loyalty is  $46,500 pa.

  3. Social media marketing (SMO) for hotels in South East Asia. Let "4 Web Marketing" manage your South East Asian hotel's social media marketing.

  4. Set-up pay per click marketing for Asian hotels including landing pages which reduce your cost per click. There are only two scenarios when people search for your hotel by name:

    • You are showing a PPC ad for your hotel along the lines of “Official Site, Book Direct, More info.” You get the click and convert them on your hotel site :-)

    • OTAs and resellers have no competition from you (YAHOO!) for their ads offering “Best Rate Guaranteed, No Cancellation Fee, More info!” OTA get the click and sells your room, making 15-20% commission, some of which they invest in more targeting of your hotel brand name :-(

  5. Your FREE Google Business Profile (GMB) is IMPORTANT. Your hotel marketing manager should updated it frequently and respond to Google reviews. It integrates with Google search, Google Maps, YouTube, Google Search Console, Google Insights/Analytics, etc. My Google Business Profile consultation helps hotels which don't even have a Google Business Profile and for hotels which have, we help develop your hotel profile further.  eg: Getting your content such as hotel photos and hotel video marketing on your Google Business Profile (GBP) pin.

  6. Link building for Asian hotel websites.

  7. Video production for hotels in Asia including a quadcopter drone fly-through or 360° VR video production (free with 2 day fam tour). Best with good lighting on sunny days. Cheaper than you think hotel marketing investment. A two day stay/famtour will give time to capture the best features of your Asian hotel. With content marketing, "Content is king". Embedding interesting videos on your hotel video marketing web page holds people longer on your page. This sends a good ranking signal back to search engines which know your page's bounce rate. In the hands of your hotel's social MEDIA marketer's job of creating buzz marketing for your hotel, interesting video marketing of Asian hotels is AWESOME marketing. If your hotel in Asia is not a luxury hotel, more of showing off the environment attractions it is set in is an option.
