Understanding how to maximize revenue from the extensive array of Google’s products can be daunting. To help hotel digital marketers navigate the Google landscape, HeBS Digital sat down with Google at their headquarters to discuss their latest advertising formats, case studies from the HeBS Digital portfolio, and how hoteliers can boost customer engagements and revenues from Google.
As a result of the discussions, a pair of videos were produced, featuring one-on-one conversations between Google Agency Development Manager Victoria Fabiano and two of HeBS Digital’s top online marketing experts: SVP of Marketing Mariana Safer and Manager, SEM Department Carmine Fischetti.
Fabiano, Fischetti and Safer discussed Google’s ambition to stay on the frontlines of the hospitality digital marketing industry, and HeBS Digital’s ability to harness Google’s newest products and technology and drive high returns and revenues for its hotel client portfolio.
