AboutAnywhere.com’s Hotel Partners Now Tweet
Miami, FL July 29, 2009 – AboutAnywhere.com has integrated a Twitter status feed into the profiles of its Hotel Partners who participate in the Company’s Premium Listings advertising program. This implementation will keep consumers up-to-the-minute with hotels’ current events, news, and special promotions – allowing them to make more informed decisions when comparison shopping on AboutAnywhere.com.
“Hotels are getting more innovative everyday when it comes to engaging consumers online. Many hotels use Twitter to announce special events, guest chefs, or special offers to their loyal audience. To allow consumers to see all of these announcements together as a decision making tool is very powerful,” states Ashwin Kamlani, CEO of AboutAnywhere.com. “This is something that the major online travel agencies like Expedia and Hotels.com will never implement under their current model, because the last thing they want is to allow hotels to communicate directly with consumers, for fear of losing their commissions.”
AboutAnywhere.com sends consumers directly to the hotels’ websites to complete their bookings, at no cost to the hotels or to the consumers.
The top 20 positions on each of AboutAnywhere.com’s Destination Pages are dedicated to the Company’s Hotel Partners participating in the Premium Listings advertising program. These hotels benefit from guaranteed first page placement within search results in their destinations. The Twitter account feed is optional and free of cost for participants in the Premium Listing advertising program.
To view AboutAnywhere.com’s new Twitter feed, check out the site’s Miami Beach Destination Page.
