A woman reads 6 superb hotel marketing insightsNot a lot of setup this week, Big Thinkers. Instead, let’s just get right to this list of 6 superb hotel marketing insights: the hospitality marketing link digest. Enjoy:

  1. First up, TravelClick takes a look at the TripAdvisor effect, a review of how much the review site matters to your hotel’s revenues. And, for the record, it really does matter. In fact, managing your hotel’s ratings and reviews represents the single most effective way to to improve your brand’s digital marketing.
  2. nSight offers up its top trends in leisure travel. Good stuff.
  3. I outlined 3 keys to compete with OTA’s in 2015 and beyond that you really need to read.
  4. Want another great way to compete with OTA’s? Hotel News Now reports on a big one: hoteliers adopting storytelling as marketing tool. This is a really big deal. So big a deal, in fact, that you should check out this post that asks ‘what is a “brand story” anyway?’, these tips for building your brand story, and this look at how to use emotion and storytelling in digital marketing.
  5. Another huge topic that you must know about—and one I’ve talked about before here and here—is net neutrality. Tnooz has an excellent piece that asks “what are the implications of Open Internet for the travel industry?” Great stuff and well worth a few moments of your time.
