Turning Dreamers into Bookers via User Generated Content

The era, which we are living in, is called by many as the information era. It all began with a small device called computer after that we got the internet and social media followed it rapidly. It changed our lives and it changed the business. People started to share everything. The book they read, the restaurant they made reservation at, the hotel they stay, everything. Marketers saw a potential in this habit so they wanted to use it and they called it the user generated content, UGC.

Another point is researches are indicating that people are trusting user generated content more than any other way of marketing and also they are being influenced by their friends on social media. Have you ever considered if so many people weren’t talking about the Eiffel Tower what would happen with the tourism of Paris?
