Understanding your guests needs helps you create content thats tailor-made for them.
The most innovative ideas in travel and hospitality marketing come from a deep understanding of the consumer journey, as well as a deep understanding of what guests really crave in a hotel and travel experience. So when youre planning and executing content strategies for your hotel website, think of the guest first.
What do they care about?
Try to understand what challenges they face when traveling to a new city. And help solve them. Here are two examples:
1. Create Local Area Guides
Guests want to know what makes your neighborhood unique, whats cool and nearby, where they can get a late night drink or a great slice of pizza. A well-crafted area guide can help make the neighborhood feel a little smaller and a little less intimidating for travelers who are new to your city.

2. Rebrand Your FAQs
If you know Uber is banned in your city. Or theres free parking one block from your hotel. Find creative ways to get that information in front of your guests. Rebrand your FAQs to something like Tips For Navigating JFK Airport or 3 Ways To Save A Few Bucks On Your Next Trip.
