Hotel Advertising: the Rise of Display in the World of Meta

A New White Paper Released by D-Edge Hospitality Solutions.

France, Paris. July 08, 2020

D-EDGE circulated a White Paper in 2017 that revealed the significance and importance of Metasearch in the hotel room sales. Today, D-EDGE publishes a new report that analyses, not only the canonical metasearch platforms but also all those advertising channels that contribute to hotels' direct revenue.

In this study, based on a fixed pool of 954 properties worldwide using D-EDGE Digital media solutions over the last eight years (2012 - 2019), some major trends and patterns appear clearly as indicated below:

● Bookings generated by ad-driven campaigns increased by 200% from 2013 to 2019.

● Google Hotel Ads is now the largest metasearch channel in terms of the number of clicks and number of hotel bookings; it earns 57% of all metasearch bookings.

● Bookings from metasearch remain the largest ad-driven booking channel.

But the most striking result is by Display Advertising, one of the latest digital media techniques: it now generates 31% of ad-based bookings, overtaking branded search as illustrated in the gif.

As hoteliers are, more than ever, looking at optimising their digital marketing campaigns, it is crucial that they base their strategy on facts rather than on popular belief or past best practices. In this report, they will find a complete, up-to-date analysis on the performance of the different Digital Media used by hotels (display advertising, Metasearch, Search) in terms of Volume of reservations generated, acquisition costs and return on ad spend.

The report is available on D-EDGE Website in English, Czech French, German, Italian, Portuguese and Spanish.

Revenue Management: Monetizing All Offerings


Of all the departments within hotel operations, Revenue Management may have been the hardest hit, due to the pandemic. The logic goes - no revenue, no need for revenue managers - so many industry professionals were furloughed. If business rebounds in 2021, as expected, then hotel management will have to determine when prevailing occupancy levels justify bringing back their revenue management team. Also, the pandemic seems to have exposed some weaknesses in the traditional RevPAR models. There is a growing understanding that it is no longer sufficient to use a "revenue per available room" model; instead, hotels are adopting a TRevPAR model (total revenue per available room). This model recognizes that revenue streams from other departments are just as important as the revenue gained from rooms. As a result, hotels are looking at ways to monetize any and all hotel offerings - from dining outlets and spas to outdoor function spaces and local partnerships. The October issue of the Hotel Business Review will examine these developments and report on how some leading hotels are executing their revenue management strategies.
