1/ What is Social influence marketing?
Social influence marketing is a “technique that employs social media (content created by everyday people using highly accessible and scalable technologies such as blogs, message boards, podcasts, micro blogs, bookmarks, social networks, communities, wikis) and social influencers (everyday people who have an outsized influence on their peers by virtue of how much content they share online) to achieve an organization’s marketing and business needs.”
2/ Example of Grand Hotel VillaCora –Florence
I have chosen this 5 star luxurious hotel because it has NO Visibility. Their website is really well designed but they do not have a Facebook page, a twitter account, a Google professional page, or any other tools to make them be more visible!! 3/ An idea of a social influence action plan
Set up objectives Define your target Define how you will reach them Define how you will measure your success=ROI
Enlarge the visibility on social medias
Create a blog in order to create your own community and enhance interaction Engage yourself Encourage interaction with guests (answer reviews) Build reputation Update information of your hotel in Youtube, FaceBook… Create a FB page, Twitter account, Google+… Post any news related to your hote (Events, Packages, Promotions…)
