How to Lose Customers with Vacation Rental and Hotel Photos
The more photos you have the better, right? That’s not always the case. In fact, if you post more photos just for the sake of having more photos, you could actually be losing customers! The problem lies within the OTAs. See, when you upload your photos directly to them, the OTA won’t always use the best option for your hotel. Since they function as a database, they’ll pull whatever they can to fill the need.
Unfortunately, that often comes at the cost of outdated, deleted, and cropped photos that don’t exactly shine the right light on your hotel. Because of this, potential guests could get an unfavorable impression of your hotel based on one of these photos. What could have been a guest turns into a conversion for another hotel. Fortunately, Digital Asset Library solves all of those problems.
