Marketing to hotels
With More Than Words’ list of hotels, your business can find high-value influencers and decision-makers in the hotel industry and get your products and services in front of them at an important time for the sector.
Our list of hotels is ideally suited to direct marketing, a type of promotion that involves finding your audience first and then choosing the way(s) in which you intend to communicate with them – email, phone, and post.
Direct marketing campaigns involve communicating information about your business, product or service directly to your target audience with the intended goal of persuading them to take a specific action.
Can I carry out email marketing campaigns to hotels with the database?
Email marketing campaigns offer one of the quickest and most profitable routes to market for companies selling to hotels.
If you intend to send your own campaigns, you need to do is find email marketing software that you feel comfortable with and into which you can load your B2B email database and you are ready to begin sending out messages.
Email marketing platforms often have drag & drop templates which let you add photos, videos and other forms of media quickly and easily. All they need is your hotels contact list to be imported to start sending mail.
Another key benefit of email marketing (and email marketing software) is that you can track open, click-through, and conversion rates so you can see how well your campaigns are performing and make adjustments as you go.
If you want advice on which email marketing software to use, please ask your account manager when you get in touch.
Can I carry out telemarketing campaigns to hotels with the database?
With the right script and an experienced team using an accurate B2B telemarketing database to call from, telemarketing is a successful way for your company to book appointments, generate leads, and build up information on each of the hotels on our list.
Where email marketing helps you to reach a lot of people at once, telemarketing provides an opportunity to open a two-way dialogue with your target market and make real connections.
Telemarketing works well when combined with a list of hotels because it allows you to quickly reach contacts and qualify the information you have.
You can also use telemarketing to gather new information (if relevant) and make a quick introduction to you and your business.
Telemarketing is useful for following up on other marketing channels as well. It can be used to get instant feedback from potential customers and gauge levels of satisfaction with your marketing efforts in order to refine them over time.

Selling to hotels – our tips
Successful marketing to the decision-makers on your list of hotels will depend upon a number of factors.
These factors will differ depending on the specifics of your target audience.
In general, the higher the star rating of a hotel, the more they will be focused on quality or luxury in the products and services they buy.
Hotels with lower star ratings will be more focused on providing the best value to their customers through a basic range of features and services.
Meanwhile, large hotel chains need to ensure that everything across their entire property portfolio is standard.
The deals you make with hotel chains will take considerably longer to work out but will also be very valuable – and often long-term arrangements.
When working with larger hotel chains you should also be aware that final approval will come from the organisation headquarters rather than individual hotels so the bulk of your marketing will be geared towards contacts higher up in the hierarchy than if you were marketing to independent hotels.
Here, offering a free trial or demonstration to individual properties could prove valuable as the success of your product or service would be passed up the chain.
In all cases, using a combination of direct marketing channels to keep your business top-of-mind and gain insight into what the business is looking for is essential to generating leads and sales.
Do you provide accuracy guarantees with your hotel marketing database?
At More Than Words we believe that the quality is more important than quantity.
You will acquire far stronger leads with a smaller, highly-targeted audience than you would sending out general marketing messages to thousands of unqualified contacts.
For this reason we only add a hotel to our list of hotels once we have confirmed that we have enough information to make it valuable for your marketing campaigns.
We offer clients the following guarantees on our hotels database UK list:
- 85% email deliverability (excluding soft bounces)
- 92% telephone number accuracy
- 98% postal address accuracy
On the rare occasion we miss our quality targets, we either issue you with a pro-rata refund or supply you with replacement records – just let us know which you’d prefer.
