Hotel Marketing Strategies For The Independent Edge

Milestone understands the needs and challenges of the independent hotel. As an independent property, you don't get the benefit of the marketing investment of a national brand. As an independent property owner, maximizing your marketing investment is always top of mind.
Challenges for an independent property

Challenges for an independent property

Driving direct business for profitability
As an independent property, your biggest challenge is how to limit OTA market share by boosting direct revenue from your website and other lower-cost marketing channels. As an independent hotel, you don't have the R&D budgets of OTAs to drive organic traffic, nor the multi-billion-dollar ad budgets to compete directly.
  • Drive direct revenue
  • Leverage lower-cost marketing channels
  • Compete without huge budgets
