  10. 10. SOCIAL MEDIA MARKETING & BRAND MONITORING Social Media will add to and enhance the following: Reputation Management - People are talking about you online, whether you choose to listen or not. Customer Service - Social media customer service is the new (800) number. Public Relations - Social media enables you to take your message to customers directly. Customer Acquisition - Market sideways. Features and benefits are too boring to work in social media. Create Brand Communities - Activate your fans and give them something to do. Donʼt just collect them like baseball cards. Thought Leadership - Everyone in the world has expertise. Whatʼs yours, and how do you distribute it? Networking - Social capital belongs to individuals, and is loaned to brands. You can use social networking to develop relationships online that youʼd be unlikely to have otherwise. * “Social Media Channels” Russell Herder and Ethos Business Law, July 2009, Thursday, January 28, 2010

CASE STUDY – HOLIDAY INN HOTEL & SUITES WINNIPEG DOWNTOWN • Engagement: HoteliMarketing (HiM) created a campaign focused on a cost-effective, short-stay (2-5 nights) promotion to entice guests to book hotel rooms in a depressed-economic market. Landing Pages with graphics displaying price sales were created and implemented in the PPC campaigns directing the client with ‘one-click’ towards the booking site hosted by the Holiday Inn’s brand –operated website. • The Results: Over the course of the campaign, HiM was able to zero-in on a number of keywords and ad placements enhancing the results. After the first three months, the Holiday Inn saw an increase of 19.3% in Internet sales year-over-year in a Winnipeg hotel marketplace seeing a decrease of 11%. *Revenue Factory – Distribution Marketing, Business Metrics & Results – January 2008 – May 2009.
