5 hotel marketing posts you must see this week: Couple relaxes at resort reading on a tablet.I’ve got an amazing Thinks hospitality marketing link digest for you this week, Big Thinkers. So, pardon me if I skip any lengthy setup and instead get you right to the 5 hotel marketing posts you must see this week. Enjoy:

  1. In an absolute must-read, Rafat Ali of Skift advises travel brands to stop hate-selling to your customers. Even as someone who has continually argued in favor of A/B testing and conversion rate optimization, I also completely agree with Rafat that marketers must first “be human.” Great stuff. Don’t miss it.
  2. This list of “6 Key Hotel E-commerce Tips: A Cheat Sheet to Drive Direct Business” blew up on social channels this past week. Well worth your time.
  3. You like checklists? Cool. Then be sure to check out Tnooz’z Four point check-list to take hotels into the hyper-connected world. Very useful information.
  4. Another fantastic Skift post looks at the numbers behind TripAdvisor’s evolution into the next booking giant. I’ve cautioned hotels to remain aware of TripAdvisor’s increasing shift towards working as an OTA. Skift adds some brilliant context and insight to help you do just that.
  5. Finally, how about we wrap up this list with the top five hotel marketing posts of July from here on Thinks? All good stuff to prep you for the week ahead.
