RED PLANET HOTELS INTRODUCES #ITSTIME CAMPAIGN

BANGKOK – Red Planet Hotels recently launched its new video marketing campaign entitled #ITSTIME. The campaign features a series of engaging videos showcasing the brand’s selling points highlighting hotel guest experiences.

The videos generate brand awareness by creatively emphasising 10 of Red Planet’s key selling points with the tagline “It’s Time.”

“It’s Time to Save” promotes the brand’s unbeatable room rates. “It’s Time to Chat” represents the heavily-used Front Desk chat feature of the brand’s mobile app. “It’s Time to Geek Out” refers to the free high-speed Wi-Fi throughout all the hotels. “It’s Time to Explore” highlights each hotel’s central location. Of course, the brand’s popular mascot Freddy, a furry Red Panda, isn’t forgotten with “It’s Time to Meet Freddy.”

The launch of the video campaign follows the debut of the brand’s revamped website during the last quarter. In less than three weeks, the video generated over half a million views across YouTube, Facebook, and Twitter.

“We understand our millennial audience spends a substantial amount of time consuming videos across various social media platforms. It is important for us to be where our guests are by providing engaging content which would resonate with them,” says the group’s Vice President of Marketing, Aline Massart.

Red Planet currently owns and operates 28 hotels in four countries, with a focus on comfort, convenience, and style at an affordable price. The tech-savvy budget hotel chain continues to pioneer with its world-class app featuring an “In-Stay Mode”, augmenting guests’ experience by enabling them to chat directly with the hotel’s front desk even before arriving at the hotel. In addition, guests using the mobile app have access to lists of top local attractions, Uber and Grab services, and discounts at more than 200 restaurants located near Red Planet Hotels.
