    Small City Branding Around the World

    At the invitation of a friend I recently sat in on a Chamber of Commerce meeting where one agenda item was the design of their new website and brochure. Once attendees started discussing the merits of the designs, I was immediately struck by how their comments were limited to their personal preferences and own travel behavior, and were not focused on the Chamber's marketing and brand strategy and what will resonate the most with customers.  One way to check that marketing communications are customer-focused and convey enticing benefits is to not only conduct research, but to also imagine the…

  • Elegant Eggplant Rollups Recipe

    Eggplant is one of those recipes that I’d like to use often, and yet, whenever I decide to prepare it, all I can think of is eggplant Parmesan. How unsatisfying. Just this past weekend I was eating an Egyptian sandwich (to clarify, a sandwich from an Egyptian food cart here in Portland), and noticed inside between the falafel and hummus was the most delicious slice of freshly grilled eggplant. Though I’m a huge fan of grilling just about every other vegetable, I never thought about grilled eggplant. After some research, I found a great way to give it an easy upgrade, perfect for…

    Time is fleeting (courtesy Stephan Geyer on Flickr CC) (Part of my “Better Online Content” series of posts: quick tips on creating more effective content that takes advantage of the social web’s unique publishing environment.) There are a lot of blog posts and articles telling people about the “best” times to post content on social networks for maximum response, shares, click-throughs, or whatever it is that you are measuring to decide that your social communications are successful. What I do not see nearly often enough is this caveat – a lot of the suggested posting…

    Stepping out to look at bighorns with SunDog Tours near Jasper, Alberta, Canada (photo by Sheila Scarborough) Some of the best advice we’ve gotten from the SOBCon business conference was to think about the response email that is automatically sent when someone signs up for our Tourism Currents newsletter. Rather than the default “Thanks, you’re all set,” we were encouraged to think about crafting a more personal message, so we edited ours on MailChimp and added an invitation for new subscribers to tell us a bit about themselves. What’s cool is that sometimes,…

    Ocean view from the San Luis Resort and Conference Center Galveston Texas (photo by Sheila Scarborough) If I can walk out onto a balcony, hear waves crashing and smell that salty smell, I’m a happy hotel/house guest. Really, what else would you expect from a formerly seagoing Navy woman? My husband Chris Fancher told me when we were dating (in the seaside town of Newport, Rhode Island) that “negative ions” from the sea act as a mood-booster. Since I was always in a good mood around him and we were often near the beach, it must be true, right? During a recent trip to do some…

    I’ve been limping along on a very old smartphone for a few years (a mid-range version of Gingerbread, for you Android OS geeks) but it was finally time to go into my T-Mobile store and retire the old gal. After reading lots of reviews and having several good models in mind, I went with an HTC One primarily because of its excellent camera. My old phone was an HTC, and its camera was better than my point-and-shoot in low light and especially in the close-up Macro setting (I’m a big fan of finding unique photo opportunities using Macro.) The camera software that came with the phone…

  • Does letting wine breathe make a difference?

    14 Aug 2014 | 1:00 am
    As some point in your wine imbibing experience, you’ve no doubt been introduced to the concept of letting wine breathe. It’s not such a foreign concept, considering that wine is produced from grapes, which are living things grown from the earth. But, in the rush to prepare for a dinner party or if you’re arriving home and need a glass of wine RIGHT NOW, is it worth giving those bottles some time to “breathe?” And if so, how long? Good questions, my friend. The Science and History Behind Wine Breathing In my research on wine, almost everyone supports the idea of…
  • Everyday Tea Ceremony: Bringing Mindfulness to Daily Moments

    Carrie Keplinger
    13 Aug 2014 | 4:00 am
    Mindfulness has been defined as an intentional and non-judgmental focus of one’s attention on the emotions, thoughts, and sensations occurring in the present moment. In other words, it’s a clearing away of distractions so you can refresh yourself both physically and mentally. It can be a huge de-stressor for those who have daily struggles with anxiety or focus, or for the busy person who simply wants to learn to pay more attention to the world around them. With this in mind, I attended a tea ceremony class taught by Morgan Beard at the Shofuso Japanese House and Garden in…
  • Chill Out: 3 Cold Soups for Summer Indulgence

    A Guest Writer
    12 Aug 2014 | 4:00 am
    I remember the first time we tried a chilled soup. I say “we” but I mean my husband, Dan. We were on a cruise and the notion of a chilled soup seemed too foreign to me (a Greek gal who loves a piping hot, savory bowl). It was a berry soup and my husband enjoyed it, which surprised me (Dan is a PA Dutchy guy who loves pot pie). Decadent as the chilled soup was in the ship’s fine dining restaurant, it is rather simple to prepare at home. The magic in chilled soups is that each delicate flavor is not lost. It’s summer sunshine by the spoonful. The Chilled Cantaloupe and Peach Soup and…

  • Study: At upscale hotels, guest acquisition costs are devouring room revenue growth

    Sean O'Neill
    20 Aug 2014 | 8:56 am
    Guest acquisition costs are escalating at the same clip as room revenue growth, according to a new, multi-year study of upscale and luxury hotels in North America. If other hotel industry costs, such as labor and interest rates, also begin to rise sharply, the industry could face some severe erosion in margins. The white paper analyzed the financial results of 104 boutique and luxury hotels that are affiliated with national brands in the US and Canada between 2009 and 2012. Since the 2008 market crash, room revenue growth at the studied upscale and luxury hotels recovered 23%. Yet the cost of…

This new feature is a result of a new integration with Uber’s API, a move TripAdvisor says is one of the first in the industry. When users visit the listings of restaurants, attractions and hotels on the TripAdvisor app or mobile web, they will now be shown a “Ride there with Uber” button, along with the approximate pickup time for an Uber ride and also an estimation of the fare.

  • Survey: Disruption in the travel industry is the new normal

    When the industry talks about travel evolution, the discussion frequently turns to disruption. As a simple definition, disruption is any development that upgrades or replaces an outdated product or service or overturns traditional business models. NB: This is an analysis by Scott Alvis, chief marketing officer for Amadeus in North America. In the past few years the travel industry has experienced its fair share of disruption. Traveler autonomy has increased and preferences have evolved, while technologies have advanced and new companies and models have dramatically changed the way we think…
  • Google tests new hotel search, pushes Hotel Price Ads to second click

    Nick Vivion
    20 Aug 2014 | 7:50 am
    Google has been testing an evolved hotel search layout, leaning more on its mobile layout for hotel search on the original desktop search page. Instead of a carousel, there are a few ads, and then a small box that separates the top three hotels for that search. The full Hotel Price Ads unit is pushed to a second click, so when a user clicks on a hotel, that hotel’s knowledge box and Hotel Price Ads booking window loads. The new search unit being tested looks like this, effectively pushing all organic listings beneath the fold: This unit keeps only 3 hotels at the front, creating an…

  • Drones and Ski Resorts

    Eric Hoffman
    18 Aug 2014 | 7:39 am
    Drones, particularly those that can film video or still photos, present a huge opportunity for ski resorts. With that opportunity come many challenges as well. It wasn’t many years ago that the only way to get quality aerial images and video was to head up in a plane (tough to get video and not easy for photos either) or a helicopter (better for photos, but need a special mount to get usable video). We even tried a small tethered blimp which could lift a decent digital camera, but it didn’t work out for usable images. Fast forward a few years and technology has advanced…
  • A Solution to Impossible to Watch POV Video?

    Eric Hoffman
    11 Aug 2014 | 9:28 pm
    I’m not a big fan of point of view (POV) video, as I find almost all POV videos next to impossible to watch more than a few seconds. POV videos have a lot of sudden pans and tilts and are often very bumpy as they follow the head movements of the shooter, or the handlebar or pole that the cam is mounted on and no matter how smooth a shooter tries to be, things inevitably get bumpy. There’s a new algorithm being worked on that should help solve these issues. Check out First-Person Hyperlapse and let me know if that doesn’t look like a very elegant solution to the problem I…

    Almost ready… Ski resorts have been starting their lifts and opening their doors for the 2013-14 winter season and this past weekend, it was time to crank things up here in Park City. It was just a few lifts and a few runs, but it was great to stretch out the ski legs a bit, to take a few runs and to see everyone out and having a great time. More than anything, opening day is the culmination of many months of planning and effort by many different groups at each resort. From the ops teams who make the resorts function to the sales/marketing teams that got people to show up for the start…

    I’ve had this post, “leveling seasonal web traffic with content and SEO” marked in my Evernote blog post ideas swipe file, since it was published back in April of 2010 (seems like it was originally on a different blog then, but I digress). I like Mike’s ideas about trying to even out seasonal traffic to ski resort websites, but I do think it’s something that a ski resort can’t place too much emphasis upon as almost all websites see some sort of fluctuation in their traffic over the course of a year. To show some examples of this, I pulled some traffic…

    One of my colleagues is an avid reader of military strategy. He recently shared an insight: “Battles are not about terrain, or technology – they’re about people. You fight people.” “Homecoming Marine” by Norman Rockwell It is the same with marketing. It’s not about data, technology or markets; it’s about people. We marketers fight to understand the user experience. We battle for mind share. How do we win a valued relationship with a customer or prospect? Questions. We ask questions and then LISTEN, says my colleague. “Relationships let people communicate their experiences.

  • What Makes Offline, Online Marketing Effective? You.

    1 Jun 2014 | 2:00 am
    I recently attended the hugely impressive Offshore Technology Conference in Houston, Texas, with 108,000 other people from around the world. What made it possible for me to calmly stroll along 2,500 exhibits from 43 countries, view a fleet of helicopters for sale (you have to fly your manpower out to the offshore deepwater platforms), and be informed as I met with 12 new qualified leads and as many prospects in one day? I also easily found my luncheon table, and heard a keynote on Deepwater Brownfields (fields with some development). What made this rich offline experience possible? The…
  • How to Use Tumblr for Storytelling

    Be Ahead of the Crowd: Illustrate Your Story With An Image and A Few Words Last month I wrote about two converging marketing trends – Mobile and ‘Micro + Visual’ – and how they impact the way people read news about your company. Good timing. Ritz-Carlton adopted Tumblr to tell the story of its high-end Reserve collection.  Ritz-Carlton is a subsidiary of publicly traded Marriott International (NASDAQ: MAR).   That might be a signal for B2B companies to look again at this visual, micro blogging platform. Here are 2 tips to get you started on how to use Tumblr to tell your story, and…

Recently, we compiled a list of our top 70+ most-read press releases, customer stories and viewpoints during the past 4 quarters, based on clicks back to each client’s website. I was amazed to see how the power of name recognition, and a clear technology benefit solution that solves business challenges, delivered results for our clients.  Business people want to know what their peers are thinking, and what’s working for them.

  • The Revenue Management Business Process, Designed to Produce Results

    William
    15 Aug 2014 | 7:41 am
    Source:HospitalityNet.Org The unique aspect of the hospitality industry when compared to many others is that lodging establishments come in all sorts of shapes and sizes. Some have extensive resources at their disposal while others simply don’t. In smaller lodging establishments and in a vacation rental management setting where margins are often razor thin, individuals often perform several roles simultaneously. In cases of larger hotels and resort properties, specific individuals are dedicated to the role of revenue management. Despite these apparent differences, there are some core…

    Small City Branding Around the World

  • Is Your Tourism Marketing Stuck in the Membership Rut?

    Bill Baker
    19 Aug 2014 | 8:57 am
    Last week I spent some time waiting in a Chamber of Commerce visitor information center before a meeting. Glancing through many of the tourism brochures for nearby destinations, I was surprised to see how many did not immediately convey a reason to visit their community. They simply launched straight into pages of local businesses and service listings, many of which were of little or no relevance to visitors. These destination marketers provided no compelling reason to visit their city. They provided nothing to differentiate one place from another, and they failed to engage the reader with…
  • Are You Missing the Customer’s Most Important Question?

    Bill Baker
    10 Aug 2014 | 2:58 pm
    At the invitation of a friend I recently sat in on a Chamber of Commerce meeting where one agenda item was the design of their new website and brochure. Once attendees started discussing the merits of the designs, I was immediately struck by how their comments were limited to their personal preferences and own travel behavior, and were not focused on the Chamber's marketing and brand strategy and what will resonate the most with customers.  One way to check that marketing communications are customer-focused and convey enticing benefits is to not only conduct research, but to also imagine the…
  • What’s the Value of Beach Tourism?

    7 Aug 2014 | 12:32 pm
    A few months ago I was asked by a City Manager on the East Coast why he should allocate money from his City budget to a natural public space such as a beach.  This City Manager struck me as the kind of person who was a “numbers man” and would only be convinced through purely quantifiable evidence. As obvious as the answer may be to those of us involved in destination marketing, I instantly recognized that this must be a common challenge for city administrators across the country. The source of the answer was as much a surprise to me as were the details of the answers I found.  The…
  • What Were the Two Words Steve Jobs Hated Most?

    Bill Baker
    27 Jul 2014 | 2:25 pm
    According to Kyle Russell in a recent Entrepreneur article the two words that Steve Jobs hated most were “marketing” and “branding”. Jobs reckoned that people too readily “associated branding with advertising and commercials and artificial things”. He felt that people’s relationship with the product was much more important. He considered that educating the customer was of greater importance than marketing, which he felt meant that the product had to be “sold” or pushed because it wasn’t relevant enough. Interestingly, Jobs treated marketing and sales launches as…
  • What Does Phil Collins’ Love of the Alamo Tell Tourism Marketers?

    It turns out that English singer Phil Collins has been captivated since he was five years old by the Battle of the Alamo in San Antonio TX. He has been so captivated by it that he has become the largest private collector of Alamo memorabilia by amassing over 200 artifacts associated with the 1836 battle. His collection includes Davy Crockett’s leather shot pouch and one of four of his remaining rifles, a pair of powder horns, muskets belonging to Mexican soldiers and one of the original Bowie knives made famous by Alamo defender Jim Bowie, and much more.

    Rika in Roatan
    19 Aug 2014 | 6:31 am
    Now that I have shed the light on the greatness of the humble baleada, let me introduce you to its delicious cousin: the pastelito. Pastelitos are actually called pasteles, but in Spanish you can add an “-ito” or “-ita” to the end of words to make them cuter. There is apparently no other reason for it, just to make it sound cuter. Hence, pasteles becomes pastelitos. You can say both words and they will know what you are talking about. But I like to use pastelito, because I like cute things like Hello Kitty, baby sharks, and diminutive word endings. When I try to describe what a…

      Guifuti, giffidy, geffidee… you can spell it however you want,  but gifiti is one of the best souvenirs to take home from your trip to Roatan. Gifiti is a traditional Garifuna drink which is made by pouring rum over roots and herbs and letting it sit in the sun for a few weeks, and then BAM – you have a super strong and super medicinal-tasting brew (think Jagermeister on steroids) that’s said to cure just about everything from cramps to headaches to parasites and everything in between. However, if you ask the islanders, most of them will just tell you…
  • The Elusive Roatan Rope Swing

    Rika in Roatan
    7 Aug 2014 | 8:27 am
      Many people come to Roatan and hear about a mysterious rope swing over the ocean, whose location is a local ‘secret’.   As you can see from the walkway and platform with no railing in the picture above, the rope swing is not exactly at the top of the safety standards list. (While we’re on that topic, I wouldn’t advise taking anyone to the rope swing who is: under 13, not a strong swimmer, or super drunk.) The reason the location of the rope swing is so highly guarded is two-fold: first, it’s located on private land (you have to walk through the…

    If you have been on Roatan for any longer than about 3 days, chances are you’ve experienced one of our infamous power outages. Sorry about that. shot glasses can be used for shots AND candles! Many visitors to Roatan find these blackouts inconvenient (obviously, cause if the blender doesn’t work for margaritas I get mad too!) so most bigger hotels and resorts have back-up generators that they use for the times that the power is out so that their guests can continue to be comfortable even if the power is out. If you ask any locals, all of them will tell you, “it’s WAY better than it…

    At some point in time, whether your visit to Roatan is short and sweet or long and leisurely, you will most definitely hear one or more of the infamous “THREE LIES OF ROATAN”. Unfortunately, knowing beforehand that these are lies does not seem to affect people’s overwhelming desire to believe the lie. The locals (islanders and foreigners alike) all know these lies – don’t let them try to trick you with one, and don’t mind if they laugh at you when they hear you saying them. Good luck!   1)      “I’m not drinking tonight.” Trying not to drink on Roatan is like…
