1. Data collection

During 2.5 months of Social WiFi operation, over 7,200 people logged in to the Bania Hotel network. All data is collected in the management panel, which can be accessed by owners, element managers and selected staff members. At the Bania Hotel, 70% of people logged in using their postal address, and 30% when using social networking sites - so that these data provide us with a picture of the demographic structure of users by gender and age. Thanks to intelligent WiFi, the hotel owner managed to obtain over 5,000 e-mails - a very large number in a short time (approx. 2,900 e-mail addresses). Owner owners, how many of the people who log in return - in the future, identification of returning customers may be available in their information program. Social WiFi collection also includes data regarding the gender of people who log in - which may be particularly specified when sending mailings.

2. Welcome screen

After logging in to the WiFi network, the so-called welcome screen. From this level, guests can use the hotel and like the facility's fanpage on Facebook. Additionally, the person managing the panel can appear on the touch screen or an additional screen. The owners of Hotel Bania post information about the hotel's offer here, including: about the restaurants and shops located on the premises and about the Bania Club.

3. Welcome mail

Research shows that 54% of hotel guests, after logging in to WiFi, look for attractions in the area and information about the hotel's offer, which is why Social WiFi is a welcome email. Each guest who logs in to the WiFi at the Bania Hotel receives the so-called welcome email.

During the protected period, there are attractions such as cinema nights, children's competitions and events, feasts and bonfires. Thanks to this, each guest has a schedule at hand and can be there at any time.

4. Mailings

The addresses of each guest who logs in to Wifi appear in the Bania hotel's mailing content.

Over 2.5 months, the hotel collected approximately 5,000 e-mail addresses. This is a powerful number, the main person who has been to the facility before - it means that they are 100% part of the target group. Due to the fact that mailings are sent to people who have actually stayed at the hotel, the open rates are much higher than in the case of sending e-mails to a database collected in a newsletter or to a purchased database.

Logged in people: 7,200

Collected emails: 5,000

Number of ratings: 620

Opinions collected: 160

5. Remarketing

By collecting such data, the hotel owner can display its advertisements to these people in the future while they browse various websites. Thanks to this action, you can remind yourself from time to time in a non-obtrusive way and encourage you to come back.

6. Ratings and opinions

Social WiFi has a built-in satisfaction assessment system - the so-called star system. After leaving the Bania Hotel, guests receive e-mails asking them to rate their satisfaction with their visit on a scale of 1 to 5 stars. They can also leave their spontaneous opinion. Over 2.5 months, over 620 people left a rating for the Bania Hotel, and 160 of them also left a verbal opinion. The star system allows you to collect a large number of spontaneous, reliable opinions - respondents are not rewarded in any way or forced to express their opinions, so these opinions are true. This method is therefore much more effective than traditional telephone or online surveys.

An additional advantage of the star system is integration with the TripAdvisor opinion-forming portal. 2 days after leaving a star rating, guests of the Bania Hotel receive an e-mail encouraging them to leave their opinions also on this website. Thanks to this integration, the number of ratings increases significantly, which positively affects the perception of the hotel by Internet users, builds its credibility and increases its rating.

– For us, the most important functionalities of Social WiFi are the star rating system and integrations – with TripAdvisor and Freshmail. We simply encourage our guests to leave their opinions on a website that is important for our image. Moreover, thanks to Social WiFi, everything is automated, which is very important with so much data. Thanks to this, we get to know the expectations of our guests better and we can develop in the right direction - explains Wojciech Sadowicz.

Profitoom is the official distributor of the tool on the Polish hotel market.
