We require Australian statistics in order to develop an infographic.
Industry: Hotels, Motels, Accommodation, Resorts (Hotel Ratings- 4 stars)
We need to know the benefits of using SMS Broadcasting (Short Message Service) within this industry.
Definition: SMS Broadcasting - the ability to send bulk personalized messages to mobile phones
Examples of how SMS could possibly be used within the hotel and resort industry:
- Add value to the customers who are staying, by sending check-in information
- Sending thank you's once a guest checks out
- Sending small surveys to collect customer feed back instantly, it could be just something little that made them not want to come back and stay again
- Send exclusive special offers to customers who have stayed before, every 3 months to entice them to come and stay again. This is also a way to go under the radar of competitors. As their competitors can not see what they are offering.
Any statistics on these examples above please report on.
Are there any statistics around SMS:
- Increasing occupancy rates
- Increasing occupancy rates at slow times of the year
