Stonebridge Companies Hires VIZERGY® to Enhance Online Marketing

Two New Hotels Poised to Aggressively Compete Online, Gain Denver Market Share


Jacksonville, FL (August 31, 2010) – Stonebridge Companies, one of the nation’s leading development and hospitality management companies, hired VIZERGY to manage hotel Internet marketing efforts and redesign two existing Websites.  The partnership offers the hotels opportunity for short-term growth and unlimited long-term success, including increased online revenue.  The new Websites will be managed on VIZERGY’s Web World Publishing system, a content management system that provides flexibility, instantly updated site content and extensive reporting options - all important factors in measuring the success of the Websites.  VIZERGY’s Google certified search marketing team will manage the search marketing.

Located in the heart of the Denver Tech Center, the Double Tree Denver Tech hotel offers more than 300 guest rooms and suites with beautiful views of the Rocky Mountains.  In addition to its prime DTC location, featured amenities include a complimentary shuttle service, the contemporary Zink Kitchen + Bar, and over 20,000 square feet of event space.

The Hilton Garden Inn Denver Downtown hotel provides guests a host of options for local Denver attractions, including proximity to three professional sports venues, the Denver Center for Performing Arts and the Colorado Convention Center.  The hotel features 221 contemporary designed guest rooms and suites, 6,800 square feet of meeting and event space, and a favorite dining spot amongst locals, Pi Kitchen + Bar.

Both Websites highlight the properties’ respective amenities, target the appropriate demographics and fit Hilton brand standards. With features like professional photo galleries, specials and packages sections and area guides, the sites are sure to turn lookers into bookers.  Over 50% of the two Websites’ current traffic is a result of search engine optimization.  As the sites mature and cost effective marketing plans remain in place, VIZERGY expects the current number of bookings from the properties’ Hilton booking engines to significantly increase.
 
“It’s always great to add exceptional clients like Double Tree Denver Tech and Hilton Garden Inn Denver Downtown to our portfolio, but what’s even more rewarding is the notable success our clients achieve after their new sites go live,” says VIZERGY President & CEO Joe Hyman.  “It’s amazing the difference a well designed and marketed site makes.  A sharp design, combined with a robust strategic marketing plan and customer engagement, is always a great equation for success.”
 
“In this rebounding economy, it’s imperative to have the best possible placement online.  Stonebridge Companies is constantly re-evaluating its processes with respect to eCommerce initiatives,” says Kevin Mahoney, COO at Stonebridge Companies. “Partnering with VIZERGY has assisted us in meeting these objectives and we look forward to continuously challenging these processes in today's world of constantly changing technology and eCommerce marketing.  The new websites are well designed and showcase these innovative and strategic marketing objectives.”
