My background is in digital marketing, specifically, marketing for hotels and destination resorts. During those years, I learned about the struggles independent properties face. Navigating the digital world of SEO, social media, PPC, and analytics isn’t easy, especially when you’re up against the resources of big chains.
Then the OTAs came along.
Calling OTAs a game changer for hotels is an understatement. They didn’t just change the game; they created an entirely new one. And everyone is expected to play by their rules.
If you own or operate any type of independent accommodation, you know what that means: Paying commissions of 20%, 25%, or even 30% per booking. The fees go up, your revenue goes down, and the cycle never seems to end.
It doesn’t have to be that way.
We built Odysys because we love staying at places with character. Boutique hotels, historical inns, quirky motels, and off-the-beaten path destination resorts are our passion. These are the places that are hit hardest by commissions from OTAs.
Our mission is simply to help you book more guests for less money. Odysys does that by boosting your online presence, giving guests a seamless booking experience, and arming you with the tools to manage all of your digital efforts. And the pricing is a flat monthly fee, because we hate commissions as much as you do.
We want to help unique hotels be found—directly—by more people. After all, life is to short to sleep in a boring room.
