USA, Lake Tahoe, California. December 20, 2018

-Edgewood Tahoe, set along the beautiful shoreline of South Lake Tahoe, is thrilled to announce John D. Bradway II as its Director of Marketing and Sales.

Opened June 2017, The Lodge at Edgewood Tahoe is the recent addition to the 235-acre lakefront resort best known for its acclaimed 18-hole course. Bradway will be ushering in an era of new leadership while bringing the LEED-designed mountain lodge national recognition as a luxury destination.

Bradway received his Bachelor's in Hospitality and Marketing Operations from Cornell University and spent thirteen years honing his craft at The Breakers Palm Beach where he ascended from assistant club operations manager to director of reservations to director of strategic marketing and ultimately, director of innovation. During his tenure, Bradway championed an extensive three-year strategic study of The Breakers brand resulting in a differentiated and authentic brand platform to increase operating margins and profitability.

As Director of Sales and Marketing at Cliff House in Maine, Bradway notably led the rebranding and repositioning after an extensive re-imagination while accomplishing a repeat clientele of 25%.

With a proclivity for anywhere with snow, mountains and open areas to breathe fresh air, Bradway truly feels at home in Tahoe and comes equipped with the expertise needed to move Edgewood Tahoe into a new chapter of luxury driven hospitality. Nestled along the pristine sandy shores of North America's largest alpine lake, and toeing the state line of Nevada and California, Edgewood Tahoe is a world-class destination ideal for a getaway immersed in the Sierras with the luxe touches of resort-style living. Steps from choice skiing such as Heavenly Mountain, the property also offers easy access to premier shopping and both winter and summer activities including snowmobiling, snowshoeing, sleigh rides and sledding to hiking, biking, kayaking, boating, fishing, swimming, and golf.

Social Media: Getting Personal

There Social media platforms have revolutionized the hotel industry. Popular sites such as Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, Instagram, Snapchat, YouTube and Tumblr now account for 2.3 billion active users, and this phenomenon has forever transformed how businesses interact with consumers. Given that social media allows for two-way communication between businesses and consumers, the emphasis of any marketing strategy must be to positively and personally engage the customer, and there are innumerable ways to accomplish that goal. One popular strategy is to encourage hotel guests to create their own personal content - typically videos and photos -which can be shared via their personal social media networks, reaching a sizeable audience. In addition, geo-locational tags and brand hashtags can be embedded in such posts which allow them to be found via metadata searches, substantially enlarging their scope. Influencer marketing is another prevalent social media strategy. Some hotels are paying popular social media stars and bloggers to endorse their brand on social media platforms. These kinds of endorsements generally elicit a strong response because the influencers are perceived as being trustworthy by their followers, and because an influencer's followers are likely to share similar psychographic and demographic traits. Travel review sites have also become vitally important in reputation management. Travelers consistently use social media to express pleasure or frustration about their guest experiences, so it is essential that every review be attended to personally. Assuming the responsibility to address and correct customer service concerns quickly is a way to mitigate complaints and to build brand loyalty. Plus, whether reviews are favorable or unfavorable, they are a vital source of information to managers about a hotel's operational performance.  The February Hotel Business Review will document what some hotels are doing to effectively incorporate social media strategies into their businesses.
