Rob Paladino – OYSTER HOTEL REVIEWS a different way of reviewing hotels and properties with reporters under cover visiting hotels and evaluating them. There is an intent to allow comments through facebook connect
ZOOVER – Dutch Site Very short intro
Trust – need to build trust
the Tripadvisor way with reviews – is it the right way ?
TA: trust is the main issue people trust what they read, people read about 3 pages of reviews — don’t be scared of the negative reviews, the “truth” is there (I have some doubts about that …)
Brands are building communities so people can talk about their brand.
There is a general consensus that hotels should be heading back to basics.
- keep people happy
- listen to what they have to say
- solve their problems
- send them home happy
- don’t worry about the review online, think about their conversations with friends and relatives – you want them to talk about the great experience they had at your hotel
- be trustful and respectful
- online business is very important and will increase it’s importance – online is getting bigger and bigger not only reality but also the future (keep an eye on mobile growing fast)
