Do your Hotel Owned ponder and keep asking what effective Content Marketing strategies is truly all about?
I bet you the first things that pops up in their mind is Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, LinkedIn, YouTube and blogs.
And I altogether understand this mindset. Many marketers including I have plugged in the Social Media Marketing amplifier with our content.
Over the years I did a lot of research, talked with Hotels and hoteliers and learned that content is the number one challenge when it is necessary to Social Media.
When I ensure Hotel Owners mindset in context with the overall challenge that kept coming up over and over again, I started to understand the source of this challenge.
The Hotel Owners perceptions were that I and other marketers were actually talking about Social Media Marketing once we started to talk about Content Marketing.
Indeed, today content marketing involves Social Media. And I and my squad members of my Social Media Management partners use content marketing as an important core element of services we provide for Hotels.
But Content Marketing and Social Media Marketing are two separate strategies that will involve different reference points, aims and processes.
So, let’s take a look at how effective content marketing strategies really can help your Hotel.

Why have a Content Marketing Strategy?
Because content marketing is all about storytelling, and humen have told stories for as long as they could speak. Our attention will always go to those who tell great stories.
While content marketing involves a variety of different types of content, the mark of great Hotel storytelling is putting the customer at the center of a journey, with your services and products as the solution that empowers them to succeed.
Before creating any form of content, let’s start at the most obvious phase: your Hotels goals.
Identifying overall Hotel marketing goals and key messages can lead to more focused and effective content that highlights your strengths and meets your targeted customer’s needs.
Before you begin mapping out a content marketing plan, it’s a good idea to lay out the basic components of your Hotel, service, and targeted audience.
In a Social Media Management perspective, we see this in context with identifying the ideal clients for your Hotels content.
And when we see content marketing in context with Social Media your targeted audience looks a little different than the traditional offline marketplace segments.
