As we all know blogs are very important. In fact I can say that writing a blog has become part of our marketing strategy as a brand or hotel establishment. But we should consider having different blogs for our business, not only a general blog for the hotel. Imagine we have a lovely fashionable swimming pool, where every Saturday we have great parties with DJs. It would be perfect to have a blog just for that, don’t you think?

If you still think it is not necessary to have a blog then just take notice of the following:

Great tool to understand hospitality industry and clients.
“Information is the key for everything”. I believe W. Churchill said something like that, and it is true. We should always evaluate our hospitality market.

Improve the SEO of your web hotel / bar / restaurant
Articles, videos, photos, etc. shares and more shares, everywhere. The search engines will take more interest in your hotel, bar or restaurant giving it greater presence and visibility.

Remember Search Engines like Google are attracted by fresh and quality content and keywords used in your articles or the comments left by readers.

Own content to share on social networks
If you are able to create good quality content, this can be shared on all your social media profiles and is the best way to create curiosity.  Study your traffic through the shared posts and find out what is generating it.

Engage with influential bloggers
Thanks to your good quality posts you will be able to be in direct or indirect contact with other  bloggers from  the tourism industry . We should always think that people tend to trust the professionals  perceived as “experts”.

Get involved subscribers and potential customers
A blog helps getting involved with your brand followers and their content, through subscriptions.
