What is geofencing?

Geofencing marketing is a location-based marketing (LBM) strategy that relies on GPS technology from smartphones to deliver relevant ads to potential hotel guests who have stepped into custom digital “fences,” or geofences. HotelGeofencing.com can help your hotel property set up geofences around competitor hotel locations, local gyms, parks, stadiums, events and more! Visit our How Geofencing Works page to learn more.

What is the commitment?

Our fully transparent pricing model does not lock our customers into any long-term contracts. The initial commitment is three months, then month-to-month after that.  HotelGeofencing.com makes location-based marketing feasible for any budget.

How can we tell if it’s working?

We can track impressions, commercial views, clicks to your website and, most importantly, walk-ins by creating a geofence conversion zone around your hotel property. Over time, we optimize campaigns to increase check-ins and decrease cost-per-acquisition to show an incremental increase in bookings.

Can I geofence my competitors?

YES! We can politely steal customers that are residing at your competitors’ hotel properties with geofence marketing. We have also found that geofencing neighboring apartment feeder communities can draw hotel prospects for extended stay hotels.

What are conversion zones?

Conversion zones are the most powerful tool for tracking online to offline conversions in hotel advertising. By tracing a virtual conversion zone around the premises of your hotel, we can measure the efficacy of your geofencing campaign. Essentially, the physical location of your hotel property will serve as the ultimate conversion zone as we work to increase bookings to your local hotel property.

Where do potential customers see ads?


Hotel-specific mobile ads will appear on the tens of thousands of apps and mobile websites that accept advertising, such as the Weather Channel app, MSN and ESPN. Mobile ads can vary in size and can rotate to deliver key messaging and branding for each local apartment.

What is a target zone?

A target zone is made up of designated hotspots that we draw a digital fence around to target these potential customers. Unlike standard geofencing hotel marketing agencies, we do not simply set up a radius around target zones. Our geofences are accurate within feet, customized to precisely target the perimeters of a desirable premise. These target zones capture mobile advertising identifiers (also known as mobile ad ID or MAID) from walk-in traffic. That way, you can send targeted ads to visitors on their mobile phones and other connected home devices once they connect to their home WiFi networks.

"Matthew [the CEO] and his team have had a two-fold impact on our business. We have primarily worked with them to capture more website traffic, walk-ins, and bookings using geofencing and social media across our portfolio of hotels. But they have also helped us address critical operational staffing gaps by using geofencing to help our recruiting efforts. Their team is always very responsive and provides recommendations and analyses to improve performance."
