The first hotel named after the Hilton opened in 1925 in Dallas.

  6. 6. METHODOLOGY:  I started my research with Google search. In the search engine I typed Hilton in social networks. Google brought many links to various articles such as «How Hilton Reached 1 Mil. Facebook Fans Fast »,« Top 10 Hotel Brands on Social Media for September 2014 »,« Top hotel brands share social media tactics »and« 5 Social Media Lessons Learned From Hotel Brands », which I used for my presentation. I also visited the official website Hitlon where they enter the full list of social networking sites, which they use to promote their brand. After I found the information I visited every social network and analyzed how they use it.  In the following slides, I will talk about in more detail these social networks.
  7. 7. RESULTS:  Hilton using such social media chanels as Twitter, Facebook, YouTube, Pinterest, and Foursquare.  “Our strategy for managing guest feedback includes four main goals: listen, respond, resolve and implement. We have teams in place who closely monitor our brand social channels 24 hours a day to ensure that issues are acknowledged and addressed,” said Andrew Flack, VP of global brand marketing for Hilton Hotels & Resorts  “By nurturing these online relationships with our guests, we are able to foster a sense of loyalty with them,” said Andrew Flack.  “STAY CONNECTED WITH HILTON WHEREVER YOU ARE” HILTON.
  8. 8. FACEBOOK  In January 2011, Hilton Hotels & Resorts had 500 000 subscribers at Fasebook. The hotel is set to brainstorm how to increase this number. So they decided to use Facebook more strategically. Hotel before was publishing just photographs of their properties and beaches. Instead, they began to publish a multi-faceted content calendar in which there were news brands and initiatives, promotions, suggestions, tips for travelers and new trends, as well as Guide-books. They also began to publish surveys and interviews to attract more readers. The idea was to connect people in the conversation. In turn, the hotel also wrote comments and participates in the conversation. Hilton also publishes and funny posts, so content were not so dry and not interesting. The Hilton’s Facebook following increased by 185% in 2012.  As of today, March 9, 2015  "likes": 1,288,776  visits (8,166,845)  “Posts that highlight photos, pose questions or provide a call to action tend to generate the most traction for our brand,” said Rob Palleschi, global head of Hilton Hotels & Resorts.
  9. 9. TWITTER  Hilton uses Twitter to get the benefit of using curiosity and visual stimulation.  The main reason why social strategy of @HiltonHotels’ is successful, is that when the user clicks on the link provided on Twitter, his experience does not end there. “The customer is immersed in gorgeous widescreen photography and a lead-in framework that asks what he or she wants clearly and immediately, thus remaining visually consistent with its social media presence and time-efficient.”  Since Hilton is located in 80 countries, via Twitter, he provides the latest news for travelers. Through the news feed on Twitter, the tourist can see all of the shares and notes that to him will be interesting. Use the hashtag he can ask a question or write a comment on which hotel to him will answer.  As well, Hilton created a Twitter handle, @HiltonHelp, so they can help their guest with assistance team respond to guest inquiries and concerns.  As of today, March 9, 2015  TWEETS 33.8K  FOLLOWING 3,057  FOLLOWERS 186K  FAVORITES 16.6K
  10. 10. PINTEREST  With Pinterest, guest can learn every aspect of the brand Hilton,for example, design, kitchen, resorts, weddings and much more. Each guest can find something there that will be interesting just for him.  “Visuals posted on brand social channels spark conversation as they provide users an opportunity to comment and share personalized feedback about a destination or property. Posts that prompt feedback by asking questions or include a call to action also tend do well as they encourage engagement from our social media followers.” said Rob Palleschi, global head of Hilton Hotels & Resorts.  As of today, March 9, 2015  28 Boards  491 Pins  44 Likes  4,101 Followers  56 Following
  11. 11. YOUTUBE  With the help of this social network, the user can visit virtually all points on the planet where there is a Hilton. Also, the channel is full of interesting video about the Hilton, which might be interesting for everyone.  As of today, March 9, 2015  2,525 subscribers  724,944 views  Joined Nov 1, 2005
  12. 12. FOURSQUARE  This program is essential for today's travelers. Hilton also found it applied in brand promotion. Since Hilton is 550 locations around the world, with the help of this application Hilton experienced team will offer you where and how to spend your time with pleasure and benefit for the guest.  As of today, March 9, 2015  973 Tips  5,396 Followers  2,244 Locations
  13. 13. RECOMMENDATIONS  One of the most popular social networks is Instagram, which Hilton don’t use. I believe that you can not miss the opportunity to use such an important tool. This tool will help them increase traffic visitors on other social services. And the exact same increase revenue by increasing the popularity of the brand.  Google + is also popular tool which become now Top 5 irreplaceable program in daily life. Also, many companies creating there profiles to promote their products. Such tool help to extent target audience, as well as more easily connect with target market.  I also didn’t find any promotions on TV. I think that it is big mistake because statistics show that North America love to watch TV. By showing on TV some promos and offers can increase their sells.
