'Virtually Well' Online Meetings Enhanced With Sensory Modalities: Mindfulness, Live Music, Real Time Art, Movement, Aromatherapy, & More

Aids in Keeping Focused and Making Smarter Decisions

USA, Austin, Texas. March 31, 2020

Thanks to the Coronavirus pandemic, businesses are now being forced to do all their meetings virtually. Familiar tools like Skype, WebEx, GoToMeeting and Zoom have abruptly become lifelines. With business leaders being called on to make vitally important decisions more quickly and insightfully each day, they're now faced with all the problems of real-world meetings being compounded by having to meet with their teams virtually. S'Well Public Relations, a firm specializing in wellness enterprises, is using their expertise in the mindfulness arena to create a "best practices protocol" for not just healthier but more effective online meetings. Using some of the unique meeting facilitation tools that are the hallmark of the agency's signature creative process, Strategic Visioning Launch Pad, as well as pulling from their vast network of wellness leaders, S'Well is launching a free webinar to teach ways to use sensory modalities - such as live music, real time graphic facilitation, movement and mindfulness - to help make your virtual meetings as effective and engaging as possible. Interested companies can also enlist S'Well's all-star team to facilitate their upcoming meetings.

Bonus: these lessons - taught by a team of experts who have worked with Fortune 500 companies over two decades - can carry through the other side of the pandemic to continue to make business meetings more effective and yes, even healthy!

The S'Well "Recipe Book for Virtually Well Meetings™" Webinar, sponsored by LIVE LOVE SPA will be offered FREE via Zoom, on Thursday, April 2, 2020 at 11 am PST. To RSVP, please email info@swellpublicrelations.com.

"Each business has a meeting culture when they're together in person. Typically, dominant personalities and louder voices prevail," explains S'Well co-founder, Darlene Fiske. "Whether it's conscious or not, most meetings follow the same format - a friend told me he fell asleep on a call last week and that his company is having Zoom meetings just to have face time and make sure people aren't slacking off. Meaning a whole lot of unproductivity and wasted time."

"Unfortunately, remote meetings tend to compound all the problems of real-world meetings," says S'Well Co-Founder, Kim Marshall. "As a recent article in The Boston Globe pointed out, this issue that can be even worse in a virtual meeting as participants become passive, disengaged, and multi-task, letting the Big Dogs have their run of the Zoom Room. Now more than ever businesses need meetings that enhance effectiveness with an all-mindful-hands-on deck approach. S'Well can help."

Sales & Marketing: Technology Rules

It is impossible for any hotel to develop an effective sales and marketing plan that doesn't include a wide-ranging digital strategy. Online platforms have impacted virtually every aspect of their business, due to major changes in how Internet users research, plan, and book their hotel visits. As a result, a successful plan includes generating traffic through the use of a hotel website, social media, email and a myriad of other digital marketing technologies. One such strategy uses data collection and automation technology to create personalized content to individual customers. The goal of personalization marketing is to engage potential customers by communicating with them as individuals - to establish a more personal relationship - as a way of encouraging them to visit a property. Video marketing is also extremely important. Showing someone authentic video from a specific location is immersive and engaging, and video is still the preferred way for customers to interact with a hotel brand. Voice and Visual Search are increasingly in demand, as consumers are moving away from typing queries into a search engine. Instead, they can simply speak their request into their phone, and find and book a hotel without ever typing a word. Similarly, other platforms allow consumers to search visually for almost any image, and find out pricing information, shopping comparisons and how-to-buy - all from the app. The adoption of Artificial Intelligence is also becoming popular. The ability of chatbots to answer simple questions or fulfill requests 24/7 is undeniably appealing. In addition, A.I. seems best positioned to qualify leads that can be later nurtured and closed by a human sales expert - all at a fraction of the cost of a traditional support team. The June Hotel Business Review will examine how some sales and marketing professionals are integrating these innovative technologies into their operations.
