Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) October 28, 2009
Luxury Link (http://www.luxurylink.com), the world's leading luxury travel website, recently launched its new "Insights" section, designed to serve as a resource to the travel trade industry. Once a month, Luxury Link will post another "White Paper" that addresses the state of the industry or tackles a specific area of interest to travel business owners and operators.
Currently, the following white papers can be found on Luxury Link:
- A Three-Point Plan to Protect Rates and Build Revenue in a Recession -Challenging issues such as discounting without undercutting competitors are tackled as well as how to protect rates and drive demand
- Gaining Control of User-Generated Content - Discusses how monitoring the web is essential; how brand image is influenced by responding to comments and therefore amplifying the company's web voice and presence
- Cross Promoting and Upselling for Greater Revenue and Guest Satisfaction - Addresses such universal issues as how to create compelling offers; how to train and incentivize staff; and how to engage the guest
"We felt that during a time when the entire travel industry is facing enormous challenges, the new Insight section would be helpful to industry executives looking for solutions to issues we face every day," said Diane McDavitt, President and Co-Founder of Luxury Link. "We want to share our knowledge of the industry with our colleagues to better improve our service and product for the consumer."
To access the Luxury Links "Insights" section, users can select 'Hotel Marketing Program' found on the bottom of the site's home page and then click on to "White Papers" found on the left of the screen.
