As a marketing intern, my job was to promote out hotel on social media, to promote activities that we are offering, and to try to get new customers via e-mail marketing.

Metropol Palace, a Luxury Collection Hotel - Belgrade, SerbiaSales & MarketingFebruary 2015 - July 2015 · 6 months
My main role during this internship was being active on Facebook and Instagram profiles of the hotel. Besides posting the pictures on their official profiles, I was also in charge of answering the people's comments. As for guests, my connection with them was indirect, meaning that my connection with the guests was trough my colleagues from sales, reservation and many other ways of advertising. Working in this department taught me how to answer on comments regarding the hotel, staff, service, location and many other related things posted on the Trip Advisor, and how to answer properly on guests’ e-mails. Since Metropol Palace belongs to Starwood chain of hotels, I came in contact with their promotion tactic called SPG – Starwood Preferred Guest.
