In the competitive hospitality industry, increasing opt-in marketing data is pivotal for hotels seeking to enhance direct engagement with their customers. Direct bookings through a hotel’s own website are not only up to 30% more profitable compared to those made via third-party aggregators, but they also offer hotels crucial opportunities for upselling and fostering loyalty. By encouraging guests to opt into marketing communications, hotels can tailor their offerings to individual preferences and behaviors, enhancing guest satisfaction and repeat business. The Clermont hotels’ unwrap the gift promotion, which achieved a remarkable 78% page conversion and a 50% opt-in rate, exemplifies the power of direct communication channels in building a more profitable and personalized guest experience.

Strategic Prizes: Driving revenue and engagement through targeted promotions.

Strategically designed promotions that resonate with the interests of a hotel’s target audience can significantly amplify revenues, as demonstrated by The Clermont’s recent birthday gamified promotion. By offering prizes such as a 15% discount on future bookings, a complimentary afternoon tea for two, and a grand Sweepstakes prize of a two-night stay at any Clermont hotel, the promotion not only used gamification to incentivize direct bookings, which yield higher profits than those through aggregators like, but also cleverly markets the hotel’s amenities and variety of locations. For instance, the afternoon tea prize not only delights the winners but also serves as a powerful marketing tool, publicizing this elegant dining experience to a broader audience, thereby potentially increasing overall bookings for this service. Similarly, by showcasing the variety of their properties as part of the grand prize, The Clermont effectively taps into their guests’ desire to explore new destinations, encouraging repeat visits and further engagement with the brand.
