Hotel OTA's. Do you have the Hidden Gems?

When I search for hotels on any number of online travel sites (online travel agencies, aka OTA's), I love it when I find a "unique" hotel I never knew about. Yes, there are so many nice hotels from the major brands, but I like finding those "hidden gems." Why? It is just fun, and makes a business trip more enjoyable. Not to mention a vacation!

I've done some comparison shopping on many online travel booking sites, and I have noticed disparities when it comes to certain hotel properties for certain cities across different OTA's. If I owned an online travel agency, I would want almost every hotel property, in a specific market, represented on my site. Especially those hard to find, off-the-beaten-path hotel properties that only the locals know about.

Emerging Global Services, LLC (EGS) can help you. If you own, or work in a marketing and sales role for a Online Travel Agency (OTA), we can help you maximize the number of hotel properties you may want displayed in almost any city and country world-wide. For over three years, we've been helping grow their hotel base. It is a sales related process, contacting GM's and Marketing Directors of any number of hotel properties (Hoteliers) to help them understand the value of being listed on the Trivago platform, and then signing them up. Our team of reps are highly educated, trained and skilled in these types of sales and consulting transactions. In addition, our employees speak fluent English, Spanish, Portuguese, making it easy to help you target many countries in North America, Latin America and Europe. In addition, we have another division that services all of Asia.

Having as many valid hotel properties on your site for every market you serve is critical to your conversion metrics. Emerging Global can help you focus on those markets where you need more properties to convert more customers. Call me or email me anytime to discuss how we might help. Our nearshore location in Hermosillo, Sonora, Mexico has the expertise and the right low cost to help you cost effectively achieve your metrics.
