Our company was established in 2001. We began by providing a do-it-yourself e-mail marketing service to the hospitality industry. Within our first year we rapidly grew to more than 150 hotel clients located in over 35 countries. As the Internet evolved to become the most important sales and marketing channel for hospitality companies our email clients quickly let us know that they needed additional Internet based assistance and services.
At the beginning of 2003 we launched our new company, Lodging Interactive, with the vision of delivering the services hotels and resorts need to compete effectively online and to grow their business with a reasonable return on their marketing investment. We began to offer our clients full service Internet marketing programs and propriety online marketing tools we had developed.
As a result of the growing opportunities for hotels to leverage Social Media into their online marketing, we began to offer customized Social Media Marketing services for our clients. In late 2009, we introduced our CoMMingle Social Media Marketing Agency as a stand-alone operating division of Lodging Interactive.
Today, Lodging Interactive and our CoMMingle Social Media Marketing Agency provide proven online marketing solutions to over 650 hotels, resorts, spas and restaurants around the globe. Our experienced management team takes pride in being industry leaders and innovators, offering the services and ecommerce tools hospitality companies need to be successful. We continue to grow exponentially, yet we maintain our passion for keeping our clients at the forefront of online sales and marketing.
