Identifying your audience is just the beginning of this hotel marketing strategy. We’re revealing how tribal marketing can work successfully for your brand, and deliver real results.

Show Notes

Simon Kershaw, Executive Director of Bike & Boot Inns features in our latest podcast. 

Tribal marketing is about segmenting your audience based on interests and behaviours, rather than broad demographics. It’s about crafting a product and content to appeal directly to your target audience, gaining loyalty and sales. Using your own marketing channels can build a sense of community and a tribe. In return, you reap the rewards of customer advocacy.

Simon suggests that you must know who your customers are and talk to them directly in a language that they understand. He believes you shouldn’t be afraid to alienate other audiences, as they would never be your ideal audience.

Simon Kershaw is the Brand and Development Director at Bike & Boot Inns. He has a variety of experience in the hospitality industry, previously the Chairman of Helmsley Hospitality and White Label Management.  Simon was instrumental in the opening of Bike & Boot Scarborough in July 2020, a 65-bedroom debut for the brand. Following the hotel’s success, he looks forward to expanding across the UK. 

Join Simon, our Head of Content Emma and our Commercial Director Louise at the Hotel Marketing Conference on the 28th of April. We’ll be leading a seminar on tribal marketing and alienation strategy!
