Father’s Day is a globally celebrated holiday that celebrates fatherhood and paternal bonds. Usually celebrated on the 20th of June, the day offers many unique opportunities for hotels.
In this article, we will go over 5 tips on celebrating Father’s Day at your hotel. We will go over social media tips, event ideas, and more.
So, with no further ado, let’s begin.
1. Social Media Marketing
These days, the first step to celebrating or marking anything is to build up towards it by creating hype online. And that comes through effective use of social media marketing.
One effective tactic is to create a few promotional posts and post them through your social media handles as a way to lead into Father’s Day. Looking at specifics in terms of content, beautiful quotes about fatherhood or famous fathers of history would work well.
Additionally, the social media marketing push can also be used to promote any offers or events you might have planned.
2. Father’s Day Promotional Offers
Father’s Day is a good chance to target families with your marketing. One good way to get their attention is to offer special discounts or promotional offers on the day to fathers or families.
This can be an effective tactic to encourage your existing guests to splurge a little more to try new services or facilities. It can also be a great way to invite new guests to come stay at your hotel.
Additionally, you can also use this chance to promote some of your facilities or services that get requested less, so that they can also begin earning for you.
3. Father’s Day Events
One of the most effective ways to draw eyes to your hotel is to host an event. Father’s Day is a good opportunity to do so.
Due to the nature of the holiday, rather than simply having a special dinner, it might be more appropriate to create opportunities for fathers to spend time with their families. Activities such as outings, friendly sporting events, or movies might be ideal for such an occasion.
This event being open to the public is also a great way to connect with the local community and to make your hotel seem more accessible.
4. Fathers Among your Staff
Last but certainly not least, let’s not forget all the hardworking fathers at your hotel. These fathers sacrifice time they could spend with their families and work hard to bring a good name to the hotel.
As such, isn’t Father’s Day the perfect chance to show them some appreciation? There are many ways one could approach this. But undoubtedly, the best Father’s Day gift is the chance to spend time with one’s family. So, if at all possible, giving your staff that chance might result in many unexpected benefits.
For instance, it will make the staff feel valued and cared for. This means they are more likely to be loyal and work hard. A hardworking loyal staff is very valuable.
