  1. 1. By: Alexandra Humnicki MBA 2A
  2. 2.  The consumer of 2012, has evolved from what he was 10 years ago. The consumer of today is what is called a ‘zapping’ consumer – changing regularly The needs, wants and desires of the consumer have changed, pushed by the effects of the crisis. The needs, wants and desires, have decreased proportionally with the decrease of income
  3. 3.  Increasing competition between hotels – many new, innovative hotels on the market The on going fight for a high occupancy rate The consumer having less money to spend/ night The implementation of new digital technology in some hotels, obliges other hotels to keep up with the race for technology

  13. 13. Independent hotels include boutique hotels and other hotels wanting to be different and not looked upon as mass selling of rooms Basedon this, we can evaluate the best booking option for an independent hotel.
  14. 14.  Mobile App – The changing consumer being always on the move, this provides a fast and simple way to find hotels and from the hotel point of view, does not cost too much to advertise with. Reverse auction sites – when last minute rooms are hoped to still be sold, without spending too much money from the hotel side. Suits both the consumer and the hotel Facebook fan- a good alternative to digital marketing (e.g like GoBoard) for an independent hotel with less money than a chain
  15. 15.  OTA’s – it can be too expensive for independent hotels, and it rises the price for the consumer, however it does promote an independent hotel. Hotel Site- an independent hotel may not be as well known as a chain, hence the probability of it showing up first in a search engine, is quite low, making this not a suitable and rentable option for the hotel.
