Publish Once, Distribute to Many
Customers of E-Site Marketing and SynXis benefit from a content management tool that goes beyond Website into social media
The recently launched Millennium Broadway Hotel's Website (http://www.millenniumhotelnyc.com) was created by E-site Marketing and uses the CMT exclusively. Millennium's marketing team is already seeing the benefits of having one central location to manage its marketing messages. Jennifer Long, director of e-commerce for Millennium Hotels and Resorts, North America comments, "The content management tool is not only a huge time-saver for us, but it ensures we have parity in our marketing messages, something that is critical for reinforcing our brand. We can now also leverage the constantly growing social media web as a new and effective distribution channel for hotel offers."
E-site Marketing has also included several enhancements to help hoteliers take advantage of multiple social media marketing opportunities by automatically adding "share this" tags to Website content. Instead of just emailing information to friends, a consumer can post items of interest discovered on a hotel's Website to their Facebook page, Twitter and digg which is then seen by hundreds of their friends and followers in their personal network. Leveraging RSS feeds, in addition to content syndication, this technology yields significant benefits to search engine rankings. Google, Yahoo! and MSN all put a lot of weight on Website content that has been formatted in RSS as well as the SEO link building benefits created by syndication and link sharing.
"Just as hotel managers have embraced channel management tools like SynXis' RedX to effectively manage rooms and rates across multiple channels, they are now looking to simplify their marketing communications across the many distribution channels available," commented Felix Laboy, president and CEO of E-site Marketing. "Our hotel customers can now make the CMT their central content management hub - a huge step forward both in reach and content parity."
