Atlanta, GA: The hotel industry, being as legacy driven as it is, rarely adapts to trends during said trends' "sweet spot." Historically, hotels come running to the table much later in the shift, just as other, more agile industries--like retail and ecommerce--have already dined and dashed. The rise of social media has been one of those trends. Hotels rushed to the plate toting other industries' knowledge about what does and does not work on social. Marketers have claimed that social is lost in the shuffle, it's never a direct channel, and, if it has any effect at all, it may only be a factor in how reputation affects ADR long-term.

If you are a hotel owner or operator who has spent the last few years managing your Facebook community without clear goals, please do not lose hope now; you've laid the framework to tap into the "pay-to-play" environment Facebook has become. The good news is that this will be by far one of the cheapest channels you invest in and all the revenue you gain should be relatively commission-free while directly connecting you to your customer.
