for Destination Hotels & Resorts
|Bethesda, MD (June 21, 2006) – E-site Marketing, a leading hospitality
Internet marketing company, recently developed a customized RSS (Real Simple
Syndication or Rich Site Summary) Feed Solution for Destination Hotels
& Resorts. E-site Marketing’s application enables Destination Hotels
& Resorts to notify subscribers of special offers, events and promotions
at their favorite destinations via RSS feed readers.
When one of the portfolio hotels publishes new content to their individual Website via the RSS solution, an immediate alert is communicated to the individual subscriber through their RSS feed reader of choice (i.e.: My Yahoo!, My MSN, Google, NewsGator, etc.). Consumers subscribe to the Website page of their interest by simply creating a personalized RSS feed. Additionally they can customize their feed by selecting destinations, trip types or activity preferences. When the subscriber sees an interesting offer or event in their feed reader and they are ready to check availability, one click takes them directly to Destination Hotels & Resorts.
According to Felix Laboy, president and chief executive officer of E-site Marketing, “RSS is a great push marketing technique to get your targeted promotion to a very qualified customer: one who has opted-in by subscribing to your Website. In this way you can stay in constant contact with your guests and prospects without them having to return to the Website.” Additionally this technology significantly improves website rankings. Content delivery is the main objective of RSS technology and updated content is a major influencer in the search engine ranking process.”
Maureen Callahan, vice president of marketing at Destination Hotels & Resorts, stated: “We view this application as a significant consumer benefit and major component of our CRM strategy. With RSS technology, Destination Hotels & Resorts can effectively deliver customized information to our customers according to their unique and personalized needs and criteria.”
