HOW DOES A HOTEL IN THE AMAZON BEAT ITS SALES RECORD?

About the Solar Hotel
The Hotel Solar was founded in 1973 and is located in the city of Salinópolis, a city that is 220 km from Belém, the capital of Pará. Cozy hotel, family atmosphere, stands out in the region as one of the largest hotels in La Bragantina. region.
Institutional Site (Hotel Solar)
In February 2017, the solar hotel did not have a website that did not express an immersion experience in the middle of the exotic Atlantic Amazon. This made sales very difficult and compromised the company as a whole.
Due to infrequent lead generation, the hotel has large fluctuations in its turnover and cash flow.
It was necessary to maintain an occupancy rate, even in low season due to the greater financial problem and structured growth.
But a few months after the website was launched and the inbound marketing project started, this reality changed dramatically.
It reached the public in a new perception of its stay in the Amazon through the website and the blog, in addition to educating the public that showed interest in Salinopolis, the city where the Solar Hotel is present and, without a doubt, sales began to take off .

Site of accelerated growth in access to the new

– More than 64 thousand unique visitors to the site in the period.
First place on Google and increased revenue
The large number of spectators that the hotel faces is not only an increase in the attendance rate, but it increases the number of new guests and increases the recurring guests, that is, they have returned to the hotel at least once a year.
As a result, it was attended, where the hotel occupies the first place without a search term that is more connected with the service it provides, and consequently obtains up to 60% of clicks than in other positions. Look down:
The blog entries were responsible for 80% of the site’s traffic, and the best part: without paying anything for it, since the accesses are organic.
Communication that educates, creates value and sells
Above all, since the magazine of heavy materials of the Solar Hotel, such as, for example, Books, maps, infographics, scripts and spreadsheets helped to enhance the website.
Planning according to an inbound marketing strategy and purchase funnel, communication with clients, and led to a purchase stage at the bottom of the funnel, which allows you to increase the generation of leads, opportunities and hotel sales.
The launch of the rich materials, had a great participation in the success, as it reached the impressive mark of 40% of conversion rate, having been the CPL (cost per lead), which before the project was 2.90 and became in 1 20, a 50% reduction.
What are the secrets through the results?
In fact, it was a set of actions that had positive results. But all the time it was the focus of creating bags designed exclusively for Hotel Solar, it was made that made a big difference and made possible great achievements.
Content that connects

The same happened with the presentation of a production of materials, staying well aligned, for an experience of staying in a virgin hotel in the middle of the Atlantic Amazon.
