Frequently Asked Questions About Social Media Advertising

On which social media channels should hotels advertise?

There is no one-size-fits-all answer to this common question about the 'right' channel. Every hotel has a different target audience, which will be present on different channels. An agency that specializes in online hotel marketing can help with the selection, implementation and analysis of social media advertising.

How much does it cost to advertise on Facebook, Instagram or TikTok?

The advantage of social media advertising is good cost control: similar to search engine advertising, it works on a 'pay for success' basis. These methods are called cost per click, pay per click or cost per impression. Thanks to a self-defined maximum amount, you always have a good overview of the costs: once this amount is reached, the ads are no longer displayed.
