Internet Moguls, a digital marketing solutions company for the hospitality industry, has launched a dedicated sub-brand, m-Powered Hotels, to offer complete III-Tier digital marketing services to hotels. m-Powered Hotels will take over complete software, revenue management, and digital marketing related activities of member hotels which join the brand network.
The company has already enlisted 24 hotels from India under m-Powered Hotels network. Revealing this new business vertical, Avijit Arya, Founder & CEO, Internet Moguls, said that the sub-brand, m-Powered Hotels, is targeted at hotels and hotel owners who do not have the bandwidth to handle digital marketing , revenue management and technology themselves. “This is a natural progression for us from a digital marketing agency to a complete software, revenue management and digital marketing solution provider,” he said. Today, 15 to 30 per cent of the total revenue are generated digitally. The share will be reaching up to 50 per cent very soon. Therefore, hotels that fail to leverage the technology in all aspects of operational and service delivery will be wiped out from the business, Arya observed.
The vision of the company is to equip m-Powered Hotels to manage revenue of USD 100 million in the next two years, he stated. While the services being offered is comprehensive for any type of hotel, m-Powered Hotels will be targeting more standalone, unbranded hotels. “We want to position ourselves as a one-stop-shop for all sorts of technology and digital marketing services.”
As regards their capabilities, Arya said that they have a talent pool of more than 150 people from diverse backgrounds such as social media marketing, hospitality, advertising, consulting , etc. to support the process. “Moreover, we are powered by best in class technology that can get a hotel up and running in 21 days,” Arya said.
The company has plans to expand m-Powered Hotels memberships to regional countries like Sri Lanka, UAE, etc. “We see a lot of scope for this brand globally. However, our focus would be on India market initially before going to markets like Sri Lanka, UAE, etc.,” he informed. Internet Moguls provide digital marketing solutions to 500 hotels across 19 countries currently. Besides India, the company has offices in Dubai and Vancouver.
