Soap - The Key To Building Hotel Brand Loyalty



A great idea for how hotels can continue building brand loyalty even whilst they guest on able to travel to stay with them. Send them a bar soap. And I'm not even joking as you know I used to travel quite a bit before this covid. Nineteen. On. Every six months of the year it'd be on the road and I'm lucky that a lot of those times was staying Nice hotels and so whatever I stayed in a nice hotel and came across an ice bar or so nick, I took a with. and.

I actually think it would have a massive impact much better than promotional deals much better than advertising much better than any social media campaign.
