Cuckoo have been working with Valor Hospitality for almost 2 decades, during this time we have supported their central marketing team to deliver marketing communications as well as support on a local level for hotels across all marketing channels. This includes social media management across 17 hotels and 3 food and drink outlets under a number of global franchise brands including Hilton, Crowne Plaza, Holiday Inn, AC Marriott and Hotel Indigo.
As part of the overall digitisation of the business Cuckoo were briefed to create a new social media strategy. There was an existing strategy planned and implemented by Cuckoo, however, there was a shortfall of authenticity that can only be achieved when physically being at the property – this prevented the hotels from truly connecting with customers. The new social media strategy included:
Create synergy between all hotels
Create overall consistency
Give each hotel authenticity and stronger presence within their local community
We started with an in-depth audit of every hotel’s social media channels across Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and looking at
Channels – where their audience was most engaged
Content – frequency, tone of voice and language
From this we were able to design a strategy to equip the hotels with the knowledge, skills and tools required to take ownership of their own channels.
The strategy has been in place for 12 months we have hosted two full-day face-to-face workshops with the hotels social media champions, 5+ interactive webinars and the results speak for themselves.
