Let's get stuck in.

What Makes a Top Hospitality, Hotel or Leisure Marketing Agency?

You might be thinking, why have these agencies been put into this post?

Other than impressive case studies, there's a lot more to it.

So what else should you be checking for when hiring a marketing agency?

  • Average Client Retention. The longer the agency has worked with its existing clients, the better! If an agency is constantly churning clients repeatedly, it's clear that something must be broken. Whether it's their delivery, communication or lack of transparency, ask the agencies who is their longest working partnership and others who have worked with them for a similar time.
  • Communication. When presenting the proposal, ask about their ways of working and how they best communicate with their clients. Do they have weekly calls to update you on what they're up to? Do they have clear, concise and insightful reports?
  • Time, Effort & Energy. Has their team put in lots of effort to try and win your business? You want to work with a proactive team and clearly goes to lengths to impress you and your brand.

As well as these points, it's essential to trust your gut instinct when looking to bring an agency on board.

Now that you feel clear about what to look for and why we've added these agencies to the list, it's time for us to show you them.
