Not Sending Email? Here’s Why Your ROI is Suffering…
by Daisy
Whether you’ve been led to believe it’s an outdated form of communication, ineffective, or that it’s just too costly, many hoteliers tend to dramatically undervalue to the role of email marketing. With the rapid boom of social media, it’s easy to think that email marketing is dead.
Many hoteliers have also accepted that modern day travelers, especially millennials, prefer to communicate with brands via other methods. However, the facts tell quite a different story and in reality, email marketing is actually more relevant than ever before.

Why email marketing matters for hotels

Email continues to be one of the most effective and cost-efficient marketing strategies available to hoteliers. According to eMarketer, email marketing results in an average ROI of 122% – that’s more than four times higher than any other marketing initiative. A polling of professional marketers conducted by Econsultancy found that respondents only allocated 16% of their marketing budget to email marketing, but it contributed to 23% of sales.
