“Stephanie Smith and her Cogwheel Marketing team are AMAZING! Their knowledge and expertise in hotel digital marketing is second to none. That, coupled with their proactive, overdeliver approach and incredible responsiveness make them my one and only digital marketing agency partner. Plus, Stephanie is just plain fun to work with. I highly recommend!!”

“Whenever I have consulted all of the brand “experts,” especially as it relates to Marriott system and no one can seem to help, Stephanie Smith always comes through.  With several of our new hotel openings, the brand’s guidance has left us without a clear path forward. But by consulting with Cogwheel Marketing, I’m able to move ahead, utilizing her creative and effective strategies to get our goals accomplished.  I feel very fortunate to have such a knowledgeable hotel digital marketer and team in my corner.”

“Cogwheel Marketing really helped ramp up my newly developed hotels and really integrated with our on property teams.  We had opportunities with fixing hotel imagery across all major channels and getting them up to Marriott and IHG standards.  The team at Cogwheel Marketing also helped us understand the brand reports and how to better utilize them.”

“I have worked with Stephanie and Cogwheel Marketing the past year at ROHM Group, and we have benefited greatly from the partnership. Their group has provided outstanding support in online marketing through both branded websites and third-party opportunities. The Cogwheel Marketing team also provided in-depth audits of our existing information as well as recommendations to increase traffic and overall SEO. Their team has assisted us with our Marriott, IHG, and Hilton brands, and the team at Cogwheel is knowledgeable about those brands and the work process to get things accomplished. They provided us with an optional opportunity to meet in person once a year which was of great value. We are delighted with our partnership and find new benefits with working with them each month.”

“Recently, myself and two of my colleagues have been tasked with taking our digital department to the next level. Entering a realm I knew absolutely nothing about, I searched for a trusted resource in the industry who not only knew a thing or two when it came to digital marketing but was extremely familiar with how to navigate through the ins and outs of working with the brands. With that being said, let me introduce you to Cogwheel – the answer to my prayers. Stephanie and her team at Cogwheel are phenomenal. Personal, friendly, hardworking, and BRILLIANT, are just a few words that describe my experience while working with Cogwheel. Talking with Stephanie, she was able to truly dial in with what we were looking for and developed a specific plan that would achieve desirable results. She challenged our current thinking with new ideas and demonstrated plenty of patience when we asked many many questions ???? I can’t thank Stephanie and Cogwheel enough for the work and knowledge they shared and look forward to working with them in the future!”
