Adrian Awards 2023
Goals: Clearly state your marketing goals. What did you strive to achieve using this piece or program?
The goal of this campaign is to RE-ENERGIZE the Wyndham Rewards program across all key stakeholders – members, guests, franchisees, and team members! Despite being a #1 ranking hotel loyalty program with a unique breadth of opportunities to both earn and redeem points, we realized we had a gap to fill in terms of awareness and understanding of the program. This campaign was designed to grow program membership, increase member engagement, drive direct bookings, and re-engage with lapsed members. Our target audience are Everyday (leisure & business) travelers who are hardworking, practical people that typically stay at value- and mid-scale properties. Our research found that these “everyday travelers” tend to think that hotel rewards programs are overly complicated and only valuable to those who frequently stay in high-end hotels. We strove to persuade our audience and position Wyndham Rewards as a different type of hotel rewards program—one that’s simple, flexible, and rewarding for all, from soccer moms to long-haul truck drivers. After all, everyone deserves to be rewarded for their travel every time they travel. This integrated campaign has been implemented cross channels including a on-property collateral kit for all hotels including a customized QR code to track each member enrollment back to the property,, email, and social media. The on-property collateral kit was designed to reach guests on-site at key touchpoints of their stay: Front Desk (sign & brochure), key cards, Key Card holders, Guest posters for elevators, lobby and breakfast area, breakfast area tabletop sign, and staff poster.
