Life is all about living in the moment. But let’s be honest, when you’re managing the marketing and promotions for a hotel, it’s really about living in the next quarter. And that means, now is the time to finalize your holiday email marketing strategy. Here are a few of our favorite campaigns from last year to help make your holiday season merry and oh so bright.

Holiday: Halloween
Purpose: Promote and sell tickets for on-property Halloween events.

Having inspired Stephen King’s The Shining, it’s no surprise that The Stanley Hotel in Colorado put out a killer Halloween email.
