The right budget for paid advertising on Instagram for a hotel will depend on several factors, such as the size of the hotel, its location, and the target audience. A small hotel in a rural area may not need to spend as much on advertising as a larger hotel in a major city. Additionally, the target audience for a luxury hotel may be different than that for a budget hotel.
In general, it’s a good idea to start with a small budget and gradually increase it as you learn more about what works for your hotel. A budget of $500 to $1,000 per month is a good starting point for many small to medium-sized hotels. However, it may be necessary to spend more if you are trying to reach a large audience in a competitive market.
When creating your ad campaign, it’s important to focus on your goals and target audience. For example, if you want to increase bookings during the low season, you may want to target people who live in your hotel’s surrounding area and are likely to be looking for a nearby place to stay. If you want to promote your hotel’s amenities, you may want to target people who are interested in travel and have shown an interest in similar hotels or resorts.
Once your ad campaign is up and running, be sure to track your results and adjust your budget and targeting as needed. Also it’s important to keep in mind that Instagram’s Ad bidding model and metrics (CPM, CPC) play a role, so you need to be aware and optimize accordingly.
It’s also worth considering testing different formats and targeting to reach the highest conversion rate. i.e. video ad may convert better than picture and also targeting based on interests and demographics may be more effective.
