The strategy is the key for a good Marketing. We don’t need to be gurus to understand that. But it’s not that obvious when it comes drawing a positioning in the map and differentiating your brand from your competitors. Most often I help myself with the benchmarking technique, unless the business already has a clear understanding of its market and what problems their are facings, and what potentials they want to reach.
Andorra Park Hotel is one of the greatest hotels in the country – and by the way, highly recommendable to go if you plan holidays in Europe. It’s got incredible installations in the middle of the town, surrounded by mountains and nature. Plenty of space to organise any event: from weddings to business meetings or birthday parties. It also has a five stars gastronomic restaurant, and other services such as a gym, swimming pools, luxurious spa, and wellness treatments.
Best thing? All the services were also available for the citizens in the country.
The strategy was positioning the Brand as “affordable luxury”. For that, we had to include in their Marketing plan several actions that made those people just come to the place and realise that it wasn’t that expensive after all. The idea was to organise events with the gastronomic element, so we also could promote the 5 stars restaurant: És.
Here some of the events we organised for the people in the country.¡:

Digital Marketing and content creation: blogging, social media, corporate and event news (learn more about Digital Marketing here).
PR and Media: planning press release, press conferences, and advertising. Presence TV, radio, press (digital and paper), sponsored magazine and cinemas (learn more about PR Marketing).
Partnership agreements managed by the hotel director: between the client and suppliers or local businesses (read about synergy Marketing here). In events like “Noces Concept”, “Art&Vi” or “Jardins del Park” were organised including local business (such as wine producers, suppliers, complementary services, artists).
One of the most famous TV channels in Spain, Telecinco, came to Andorra for producing a snow car race episode of the well know TV show Más que coches GT (aka “More than cars GT”). And between 50 hotels available, they choose Andorra Park Hotel; so we had to coordinate the audio-visual production with the team coming from Madrid (Watch here the full episode).
Chef TV show was the following project that has never been released due to budget issues, however the prior production, calendar, and most of the agreements were set in place.
