Increase Direct Business and Brand Awareness knowledge engineering Next Generation Travel Shopping Merging local knowledge, publishing, advertising and bookings  in a seamless conversation
A Unique Platform for    Destination Marketing     Advertising is the Driving Force for  Direct Travel Marketing and Branding Bookings is the Call to Action   AXSES has merged advertising and bookings along with local knowledge into a single powerful marketing solution with a sophisticated and simple interface for managing advertising and bookings in multiple channels across multiple platforms   knowledge engineering
Knowledge engineering In  2006 major brands direct online was 81.4% - Small hotels less that 5% direct Online sales are increasing  Direct sales have have greatest growth  potential  In this environment hotels do not have to rely on high cost distribution  Many axses clients get the majority  of their business Direct Internet is about being direct!  It is the most efficient marketing  and distribution medium ever made for Direct Business
Knowledge engineering Brand Integrity Maintaining the key elements of the brand The Medium  & the Message  Differentiation - Personality  Ownership Promise & Expectation  Relationship - Loyalty  Sustainability
Knowledge engineering Brand Integrity The Medium  –  Choice of channel does reflect on the Brand. It is not always good to be seen as Expedia or as Kayak etc. In many cases a different drum attracts travelers to the small hotels. They are looking for a personal touch. No matter how tight the Integration is, travelers are aware. They will spot tell tale design and URLs, they will know who they buy from.  The Message –  The message is much more than content.  It is also about form and function. You choose to buy at store X for many reasons but if there are no price tags and you have to go to the counter to get a price- would you bother?  Creating a message that is not fully integrated with the product is similarly dissonant. The shopping experience should be fully fluid.
Knowledge engineering Brand Integrity Promise & Expectation  –  A Brand is a promise. It can say we are a small family hotel, we are local, we are friendly, we are different, we care. What is the Brand of Expedia?  Their mission statement says: “We are on a mission to be the largest and most profitable reseller of travel in the world”.  Differentiation & Personality  - Differentiation and personality are conveyed by the suppliers’ website, by its individual tastes, its use of colour, its layout and its processes.  OTA’s like Expedia do not create a brand personality for its suppliers.  Expedia  is  the brand , and the products is a commodity. In the end, no matter what, the traveler is buying from Expedia.
Knowledge engineering Brand Integrity Relationship  –  Travelers build a relationship with their suppliers.  If you have bought from Expedia and you got what you wanted, you will most likely go there again to check out other options (properties, products, destinations). Creating the Expedia relationship diminishes the hotel brand and can result in loss of repeat business Loyalty  –  Expedia is building its own loyalty program. Much like the airlines. Small hotels can and should reward repeat clients and clients that refer others to them. Loyalty programmes work. The visitor’s loyalty should be to the hotel or the DMP but definitely not to Expedia. AXSES has loyalty solutions for the hotel brand. Expedia does not! We are aware of several hotels where appropriate use of branding and loyalty programmes has resulted in 80-90% of business being repeat business.
Knowledge engineering Brand Integrity Ownership  – With arcRes, the database belongs to the supplier.  This database is unique in that it captures leads as well as committed shoppers. arcRes database marketing allows hotels to market directly to their leads and their guests. Expedia has its own marketing tools, aimed at promoting its own Brand.  Sustainability   – if you don’t own the brand and don’t have the relationship and loyalty, your business will not be sustainable.  Brand Integrity is too important to contract out  OTA do not provide seamless shopping and branding OTA build their brads, their loyalty and sustainability
Knowledge engineering Travelers visit  6 or more  travel portals and several supplier sites Start with  Travel Guides/Destination sites   looking for information and direct links to  suppliers websites  finding options Online travel shopping is tedious.  Travelers may use channels not by choice but for expedience!.  Often they see OTA as offering the “ Best Price in the Market ”   By contract supplier websites are hard to find, hard to navigate, in-consistent and do  not offer the best value How people buy
Knowledge engineering both destination and supplier branding Many travelers  prefer to buy direct  –  particularly Dominica travelers (personal, service, attention)   They have to be  persuaded   “ brand promise ” They want  value Travelers look for best value Strategic priority:  Build interest & desire – “Branding”   t Suppliers are embracing the OTAs that have become dominant in travelers minds as being the  “best place to shop”.  But suppliers loose brand control and brand integrity in doing so .
Knowledge engineering Travelers look for best value Brand Integrity -  lost in the channel  Traditional shopping sites/booking engines do not build your brand Expedia: “mission to become the  largest and most profitable   Seller of travel in the world” http://investors. expediainc .com/ Closed loop – no product personality Medium & Message  Promise & Expectation Differentiation - Personality Relationship - Loyalty  Ownership – Sustainability No seamless experience

.  Knowledge engineering Searching   - Shopping – Product Branding: Merge “ Each element in the search- ads -shop-buy  cycle  is undergoing a period of intense innovation, making each increasingly significant, yet interdependent. In fact, searching, shopping and buying – once distinct terms describing different behaviors – are blurring at a furious pace”.  The perfect storm - Philip C. Wolf, President and CEO, PhoCusWright Inc.   AXSES technology is leading edge!.

Next Generation Travel Shopping

  • 1. Increase Direct Business and Brand Awareness knowledge engineering Next Generation Travel Shopping Merging local knowledge, publishing, advertising and bookings in a seamless conversation
  • 2. A Unique Platform for Destination Marketing     Advertising is the Driving Force for Direct Travel Marketing and Branding Bookings is the Call to Action   AXSES has merged advertising and bookings along with local knowledge into a single powerful marketing solution with a sophisticated and simple interface for managing advertising and bookings in multiple channels across multiple platforms knowledge engineering
  • 3. Knowledge engineering In 2006 major brands direct online was 81.4% - Small hotels less that 5% direct Online sales are increasing Direct sales have have greatest growth potential In this environment hotels do not have to rely on high cost distribution Many axses clients get the majority of their business Direct Internet is about being direct! It is the most efficient marketing and distribution medium ever made for Direct Business
  • 4. Knowledge engineering Brand Integrity Maintaining the key elements of the brand The Medium & the Message Differentiation - Personality Ownership Promise & Expectation Relationship - Loyalty Sustainability
  • 5. Knowledge engineering Brand Integrity The Medium – Choice of channel does reflect on the Brand. It is not always good to be seen as Expedia or as Kayak etc. In many cases a different drum attracts travelers to the small hotels. They are looking for a personal touch. No matter how tight the Integration is, travelers are aware. They will spot tell tale design and URLs, they will know who they buy from. The Message – The message is much more than content. It is also about form and function. You choose to buy at store X for many reasons but if there are no price tags and you have to go to the counter to get a price- would you bother? Creating a message that is not fully integrated with the product is similarly dissonant. The shopping experience should be fully fluid.
  • 6. Knowledge engineering Brand Integrity Promise & Expectation – A Brand is a promise. It can say we are a small family hotel, we are local, we are friendly, we are different, we care. What is the Brand of Expedia? Their mission statement says: “We are on a mission to be the largest and most profitable reseller of travel in the world”. Differentiation & Personality - Differentiation and personality are conveyed by the suppliers’ website, by its individual tastes, its use of colour, its layout and its processes. OTA’s like Expedia do not create a brand personality for its suppliers. Expedia is the brand , and the products is a commodity. In the end, no matter what, the traveler is buying from Expedia.
  • 7. Knowledge engineering Brand Integrity Relationship – Travelers build a relationship with their suppliers. If you have bought from Expedia and you got what you wanted, you will most likely go there again to check out other options (properties, products, destinations). Creating the Expedia relationship diminishes the hotel brand and can result in loss of repeat business Loyalty – Expedia is building its own loyalty program. Much like the airlines. Small hotels can and should reward repeat clients and clients that refer others to them. Loyalty programmes work. The visitor’s loyalty should be to the hotel or the DMP but definitely not to Expedia. AXSES has loyalty solutions for the hotel brand. Expedia does not! We are aware of several hotels where appropriate use of branding and loyalty programmes has resulted in 80-90% of business being repeat business.
  • 8. Knowledge engineering Brand Integrity Ownership – With arcRes, the database belongs to the supplier. This database is unique in that it captures leads as well as committed shoppers. arcRes database marketing allows hotels to market directly to their leads and their guests. Expedia has its own marketing tools, aimed at promoting its own Brand. Sustainability – if you don’t own the brand and don’t have the relationship and loyalty, your business will not be sustainable. Brand Integrity is too important to contract out OTA do not provide seamless shopping and branding OTA build their brads, their loyalty and sustainability
  • 9. Knowledge engineering Travelers visit 6 or more travel portals and several supplier sites Start with Travel Guides/Destination sites looking for information and direct links to suppliers websites finding options Online travel shopping is tedious. Travelers may use channels not by choice but for expedience!. Often they see OTA as offering the “ Best Price in the Market ” By contract supplier websites are hard to find, hard to navigate, in-consistent and do not offer the best value How people buy
  • 10. Knowledge engineering both destination and supplier branding Many travelers prefer to buy direct – particularly Dominica travelers (personal, service, attention) They have to be persuaded “ brand promise ” They want value Travelers look for best value Strategic priority: Build interest & desire – “Branding” t Suppliers are embracing the OTAs that have become dominant in travelers minds as being the “best place to shop”. But suppliers loose brand control and brand integrity in doing so .
  • 11. Knowledge engineering Travelers look for best value Brand Integrity - lost in the channel Traditional shopping sites/booking engines do not build your brand Expedia: “mission to become the largest and most profitable Seller of travel in the world” http://investors. expediainc .com/ Closed loop – no product personality Medium & Message Promise & Expectation Differentiation - Personality Relationship - Loyalty Ownership – Sustainability No seamless experience
  • 12. Knowledge engineering Destination Marketing Context Local Knowledge - Brand Promotion/ Advertising STICKINESS direct links and product promotion comparison charts shopping lists loyalty programs best price guarantee travelers resources travelers website local knowledge 3 rd party reviews social media Travelers want to see supplier sites Direct links at all stages of the buy cycle Product Promotion Build a reason to return Facilitate shopping

  • 14. . Knowledge engineering Searching - Shopping – Product Branding: Merge “ Each element in the search- ads -shop-buy cycle is undergoing a period of intense innovation, making each increasingly significant, yet interdependent. In fact, searching, shopping and buying – once distinct terms describing different behaviors – are blurring at a furious pace”. The perfect storm - Philip C. Wolf, President and CEO, PhoCusWright Inc. AXSES technology is leading edge!. We have integrated product branding with all phases of the shopping cycle into a seamless supplier focused experience direct sales – facilitating distribution Interactive advertising works!
