While doing some research I came across an awesome new resource for the hospitality industry launched by Lodging Interactive. Their new social media service, WebShow, is a blog for hotel or travel services featuring rich content to promote their offerings. The Lodging Interactive WebShow is distributed on You Tube.
3dwalkthroughs.com will be looking at this new service very carefully as it would be a perfect vehicle for our new interactive 3D Walkthroughs and 3D Floor Plan products and services which are set to launch in the next few months.
Below is the Press Release from Hospitality Net.
Lodging Interactive introduced its newest social media service today, WebShow is a blog for your hotel or travel service featuring your own rich content to promote your hotel or travel service. The Lodging Interactive WebShow is distributed on You Tube. YouTube is the leading social media website with more than half of the United States social media traffic. The new YouTube WebShow gives hotels and other travel services a way to reach millions of online travel shoppers with rich video content at an affordable price.
Following the launch of its Chatter Guard, a tool that monitors and enables professional, cost effective management of social media chatter about your business, Lodging Interactive is moving quickly to be the industry leader in managing and marketing via the rapidly growing world of social media. “WebShow give all hotels the ability to deliver a professional video montage of property’s photos with appropriate music, reaching millions of YouTube travel shoppers. A hotel can feature as many as thirty photos describing all attributes of its hotel for less than a one time fee of $1,000 for the year”, stated D.J. Vallauri, President and Founder of Lodging Interactive.
Richard Walsh, Vice President of Business Development for Lodging Interactive added, “Our goal at Lodging Interactive is to give hoteliers the tools they need to gain the most from all marketing opportunities offered by the Internet, while measuring their Internet marketing ROI. Our services capitalize on how consumers are shopping online today and enabling hoteliers to manage their search engine marketing along with social media marketing.
