In today’s digital age, your website is your virtual front door… and the primary method hospitality companies have of attracting guests. Many hotels make the mistake of designing sites that are visually appealing but lack strategic elements designed to guide and prompt users to make a conversion.
At Blackwood Industries, we focus exclusively on the hospitality industry, so we have a deep understanding of your needs—and that of your visitors as well. Our websites marry the conversion-focused goals of the owner or management group with the best-in-class user experience found at many high-end design firms, resulting in a tailored experience that benefits your business and the consumer. Offering much more than just good looks, our websites are designed and developed with best-in-class practices for SEO, user experience, analytics and content management.
