Hotel Winterer

A holiday accommodation with a stunning view of the Dachstein range

Who’s behind the project?

Hotel Winterer is an owner-managed hotel with 15 rooms in Rohrmoos near Schladming. Located right by the ski slope, it’s especially popular with skiers and winter sports guests. During the warmer months, it’s the perfect starting point for hiking tours through the Dachstein region in Styria. While owner Stefan has dedicated himself to everything culinary, his wife Christine Kraml is responsible for reception and service.

The challenge

Until a strategy was conceptualised in 2017, Christine and Stefan managed their Facebook account with a lot of passion but very sporadically. The goal was to change this and provide their fans – nature-loving, active guests who prefer to spend their time outdoors – with regular updates and insights into the happenings at the hotel. The objectives of the new strategy were an increase in reach and interaction rate as well as the organic growth of Facebook fan numbers. Useful and entertaining content was defined as the best way to achieve this. 

In short: Hotel Winterer’s Facebook presence was intended to represent the hotel’s personality even more strongly and authentically. This was achieved through daily behind-the-scenes insights, which showed the Winterers up close and personal. The hosts were placed in the focus as gourmets or as hiking and snow guides. 

Additionally, new image material was produced for the various social media accounts. The output: about 150 photos on two shooting days. 

The special nature of the project

Hotel Winterer is a small and incredibly charming hotel in Schladming at 1,253 metres above sea level. Due to the high number of regulars, communication on Facebook was intended to be particularly authentic and personal. Regular updates and interaction with the fans – many of which spend their holidays at Hotel Winterer every year – took priority in our strategy.
