Come Aboard, We’re Expecting You.

Love, exciting and new. The courting process is so full of wonder and amazement. Ask any woman. The way to guide the courting process is to make sure she is immersed in it. So here’s your chance, hotel marketers. You’ve got a guest interested in seeing your sights. Time to make her fall in love with you.

So she hits up your site. What will make her stay? A dazzling first impression. Beauty. Seduction. Meaningful words, images and space. Brand alignment. NOT pages packed with SEO copy, flashing room specials, and cheesy stock photography.

Lure her in with a gorgeous brand identity, coupled with photography, typography, voice and user experience that communicates the service level of the property. Whether it be luxury, quirky, family or low-budget, in order to be perceived as professional, the image of your site, brochure or first point of contact is crucial. Many visitors are researching, and making a good first impression will determine whether or not you make the shortlist.

The shift in the last decade from print to online annual reports is related to access to the Web and the nature of a company’s audience(s).

DIY SEO: Achieve High School Style Popularity On The Web

Being popular takes work.

You’ve got a spectacular new Web site with all the bells and whistles. You’re ready to ‘wow’ them and rake in the dollars. But all you’re hearing is… crickets. Perhaps it’s because your site is floating on a small raft in a sea of similar businesses in Google. Every time someone performs a search for your product or service, there’s 46 pages and 35,000 search results before yours. Sigh.

A PDF Does Not An Interactive Annual Report Make

Target Corporation

These reports are supposedly called ‘interactive annual reports’. The only interactive is dragging your mouse across your desk to try and turn these pages and zooming as close as you can to read the text.

Can you read these reports in these Adobe Acrobat PDF readers at full size in your browser? Neither can we. Corporations: how about using techology to benefit your readers instead of the IR department? Just a thought. Is this the way interactive reports are going with the recession?
