Example marketing plan hotel Question: How can a hotel make better use of the orangery?
Approach To determine which customers the hotel should target, an STP (Segmentation, Targeting, Positioning model) analysis is carried out. The result was 2 different target groups. Based on this, a differentiated marketing mix is created. This sets out how to reach these target groups. The target groups desire aspects such as: sustainability, vegetarian diet, brunch and use of innovative technology.
Use the orangery especially in the off-season.
Attract guests other than hotel guests. For example, by offering afternoon tea.
You can promote this through social media and organising events.
