There is distribution, and then there is smart distribution. On its own, a distribution tool will substantially increase occupancy simply by virtue of automation; however, using a distribution tool wisely can also mean ADR increases as well as higher OTA rankings and overall greater visibility. However, what is smart distribution? Ultimately, it is the human element. In other words, the strategy. It is the combined power of channel reach + product appeal + OTA positioning. It’s part marketing, part revenue management.
