Fuel Hotel Marketing Podcast: Episode 12 – Travel News Roundup July 2016

In this week’s episode of the Fuel Hotel Marketing Podcast, we keep it short and sweet. We’ve been a little distracted this week with our local college baseball team, the Coastal Carolina Chanticleers, winning the college world series and all that.  It’s also a holiday weekend in the USA, so we’re looking to clock off early and go hang out on the beach with an ice cold libation. For that reason, we’re going to cover a few news items but not dig into a specific topic. We hope that y’all are ok with that.

What’s going on int he world of  hotel marketing this week? Facebook update decreases your exposure. Will What3Words revolutionize way-finding?  Kayak gets into the bot game and more.

We’ll be back next week with an in depth look at social media for hotels.
