Videos can convey a message which you can’t convey in words, it can speak a thousand words in a few moments.

Therefore, you must be clear in the message or content which you want to convey through your videos.

It must be worth sharing and arise the interest of the viewers.

When we share an engaging and creative video as per the interest of our target audience.

Then we can easily grasp their attention and compel them to stay in tune until the end.

Example of different types of video content are-:

With virtual tours of your hotel, you can give a glimpse of your hotel to your potential guests.

These videos show the visiting gallery, facilities available in the rooms, etc of your hotel.

Eventually, visitors get an idea about the look and feel of the hotel.

The biggest attraction to your hotel sometimes is what’s going on in the surrounding neighbourhood.

Whenever annual or monthly activities are taking place in your city, hoteliers may send out a crew to film themselves having a wonderful time at such activities.

Whether it is an art exhibition, food festival, or any other activity, you can post videos to attract interested guests.

  • Firstly, decide the budget and purpose of your video. It will also help to decide the length of your video.
  • Perhaps the video is the first glimpse the visitors will have of your premises.
  • Hence, you must create an impactful and appealing video to arise your audience curiosity.
  • Don’t shoot everything and set yourself apart. Keep it short and catchy.
  • You may use a timelapse, a 360° for displaying a room, testimonials, or a video of the ‘tour-type.’
  • Finish the video with a call-to-action button from where interested guests can book a room, sign up for your email or newsletter, etc.
  • Good lighting will make the video look even more polished.
  • If the lighting of any room is low then use adequate lighting to give it a professional look.

From above we can conclude that by building an effective video campaign hoteliers can showcase their hotel in advance to the potential guests.

It allows them to check out the video and get a sense of everything.

When they like what they see, they will be excited to visit your hotel and book a room.
