Why Hotel Photography Matters to Hoteliers
According to Hospitality Net, after price, hotel photography is the single most important factor for travelers and prospects scanning OTA sites. In fact, your photography counts for a 65% weighting in that decision making process. And according to a recent Trip Advisor study, when people are deciding which property to book, the reviews they read on the site are not nearly as important in their decision-making process as are the images displayed. So those pictures need to not just be good, but eye-catching. And if you show off your hotel with good, well exposed and colorful images, you are going to keep those peoples eyes on your property a longer… a LOT longer. The longer you keep people looking at your property, the higher chance you have of closing that deal, and garnering a booking.
With alternative services like Airbnb on the rise- not to mention disruptive apps that you can download for free on your phone- it isn’t getting any easier to boost bookings for your property. You need a way to stand out- and stand above- your competition. One of the easiest, fastest and least-expensive ways to realize that change is to upgrade the lever of your commercial hotel photography.
Photography & Marketing
One of the most important and easiest marketing investments any hotel or resort can make is for truly professional quality images to show off their property. Not only do you get a great ROI, but the effects are almost immediate. In as little as three weeks, we can shoot a whole new series of images for your property, or some fresh images to liven up your online presentation. If you are not moving forward, you are being left behind.
At first glance, high-quality hotel photography may seem expensive. But keep in mind it is a one-time fee. There is no ongoing maintenance, no monthly fees or subscriptions. If you increase booking by 10 percent, how long does an upgrade to your photography take to pay for itself? Usually not even six months, and sometimes as little as a month. That is a great ROI for you and your marketing!
