The future of digital marketing for hotels is visual storytelling, and if you aren’t telling a compelling visual story online, you’re starving consumers of the content they desire.
Guests aren’t just booking a room with you, they’re booking an experience, and they want to see what that experience looks like.
Leonardo data shows that 86% of visitors consume more than 10 images when they visit our media gallery, proving that travel shoppers crave images. But not all images are equal, there is one type of visual that is viewed more than any other, and it’s probably not the one you’re using as your hero shot.
