More content that doesn’t cost you.

Having guests share photos of their trip attributes to more content you can share on your social media pages and website, with little cost to you.  These photos will spark content that your guests want to read because it is showing real people having a good time at your resort. This kind of fun content is great for helping with your resort marketing. This content comes to you with little effort, as there is not enough time in the day for you as a property manager to constantly take updated pictures of your resort. All you must do is express to your guests that they can send you photos of their trip to be posted on social media and your website. Many people love to share the pictures of their trip online, anyway. So, this is another easy way for people to share their trip with others, while at the same time helping with you resort marketing.

Produces more guest engagement.

Fan photos are great at showing ‘unstaged’ photos of your resort and how ‘real’ people are enjoying it. It provides a new level of engagement for your guests.
