Social Media Marketing and Management for Hospitality

Social media marketing and management for hospitality, restaurants, cafes and hotels in these times have to deal with fear and uncertainty. The pandemic has caused many a business to take a turn for the worse, if not totally go bankrupt and close. They have to deal with a lot of government restrictions, policies and fear of the general public as this enemy cannot be seen. Even with the proper health procedures, some customers and guests are reluctant to go out and be among people.

This is not to say that there wouldn’t be any customers at all. There are still some who would venture and just are not happy with being indoors for long periods of time. Man is a social being and even if it is just to walk the dog or stay for a day in a hotel for a fresh location, they would do that. 

 

Walking around aimlessly is currently not on the menu, this is where social media can help. Social media marketing and management for hospitality done right will help people find out if your establishment is open, the hours it is open for and what to expect if they want to drop in. Because of imposed social distancing, most restaurants and cafes have decreased guest capacity. Some even have to cut down workers for operations.

Facebook and Instagram are effective platforms in conveying hours of operations and getting in touch with the public. These platforms have different demographics and therefore have different buyer spending patterns. The younger, more hip, visual platform Instagram tackles the specials of the place, relying on artistic images. Facebook is the more informative of the two. The go-to  all around platform where recommendations, announcements and more extensive details are shared. Take a quick look at some of the cafes currently doing it great on these platforms.

Too much familiarity might breed contempt. And if the social restrictions get even longer, now and then, people need a breather. Even if just for a cup of coffee not made by themselves, in completely different surroundings that they wouldn’t have to wash the cup after.
