Case Study Builder
Updated over a week ago

The case study builder is a feature that enables hotel tech companies to quickly and easily build beautiful, engaging and trustworthy case studies that get promoted on Hotel Tech Report.

The Challenge. Case studies are an extremely effective mode of content marketing that enable you to build trust with prospects by showing them proof of the results that you obtained with existing notable clients. The downside to case studies is that:

  • ⏰ Time consuming to produce. Producing even a single case study is extremely time consuming and requires complex coordination amongst your client, writers, graphic designers, editors, web developers and internal stakeholders.

  • πŸ€” Lack authority & trust. Since companies develop case studies about their own products, they carry an inherent bias that reduces their credibility with prospects who read them.

The Solution. The verified case study wizard enables your team to quickly and effortlessly create beautiful and engaging case studies by filling in the blanks. Case studies then get verified by hoteliers and hosted on Hotel Tech Report to increase credibility with prospects and make sure they get visibility with our audience.

πŸ‘‰ Why It's Important. Verified case studies are the first step towards increasing benefits based selling throughout the site to help hoteliers visualize and imagine the possibilities of leveraging digital products by seeing real examples of their peers who are using them and the outcomes they are achieving instilling urgency, trust and FOMO to drive adoption of tech in the global hotel industry.
