One of the numerous richly rewarding large scale businesses in Nigeria is hotel and hospitality management. Provided you select the perfect strategic environment as the location, and have a beautiful structure and system, hotel business can be a very valuable one.
Most times though, many hotels do not really last long in the market and their relevance fades. It is not uncommon to find many of them even with nice structures lacking customers and therefore not getting value for the endeavor. Additionally, competitions may be much and it becomes difficult to stay relevant.
Here are ways hotel owners can use bulk SMS to stay ahead of competition and tap into the rich potential of hotel management.
The very first thing you will want to do when you’ve set-up a new business is to let people know about this. This is where advertisement comes in. With the different channels that can be used to advertise your hotel business, bulk SMS is equally an effective one. Once your hotel is up and running, spread word on Social Media, Print Media, internet and more economically bulk SMS. This helps to keep your business in the face of potential customers and vendors.
GUEST RESERVATIONS AND BOOKINGS:
As your hotel business grows and with the right nurturing given to it, you will end up amassing a great number of customers in a short while. Especially during festive periods, people might flock to your hotel especially when you’ve won their love. It won’t be good for business when some top clients come only to find out the rooms they want are taken. You can use bulk SMS in room reservations and bookings. You might even have a shortcode for your hotel business whereby customers can send a booking message to it. It can help them reserve a space for themselves for the future. This fosters long-lasting relationships with your customers.
