Director of Sales & Marketing, Mr. C Miami – Coconut Grove

The brand

In the heart of historic Coconut Grove, one of Miami’s most idyllic neighborhoods, lies Mr. C Miami, a luxury hotel that marries contemporary comforts with personalized, discreet service. The rooms and suites reflect a harmonious blend of modern amenities and classic elegance. Each space is crafted to offer guests a tranquil retreat, complete with plush furnishings and panoramic views of the stunning Biscayne Bay and the dynamic Coconut Grove skyline. The brand was conceived by Ignazio and Maggio Cipriani of the Cipriani family, internationally renowned for their restaurants, innovative event spaces, nightlife, and residences. Behind the hotel’s success is a world-class team and Dragonfly Strategists, a trusted partner in marketing services, wielding the power of Revinate Marketing for industry leading hotel email marketing solution and guest database.

The challenge

The marketing team at Mr. C Miami grappled with the daunting task of personalizing guest communication, especially email confirmation messages, which needed to align to a wide array of rates and negotiated accounts. This challenge posed logistical hurdles and also hindered the hotel’s ability to provide personalized communication, crucial for enhancing guest experiences and nurturing trust with travel partners. So, Mr. C Miami turned to Dragonfly Strategists, their trusted agency partner known for their efficiency and collaborative nature to help solve the problem.

The solution

With deep experience in hospitality technology, Dragonfly immediately knew that Revinate Marketing was not only capable of solving Mr. C Miami’s email personalization challenge, but could also drive significant direct revenue through one-time and automated campaigns, like pre-arrival emails that include personalized recommendations to promote wellness, and OTA winbacks (featured right) to drive future direct revenue.

Leveraging Revinate Marketing’s advanced features, such as dynamic fields, to accommodate various policies, custom confirmations for consortia, and improved visualization options, Dragonfly embarked on a journey to transform Mr. C’s marketing strategy. Dragonfly pushed the limits of the dynamic fields, a brand new Revinate feature at the time, allowing Mr. C Miami to reach the highest level of personalization while providing meaningful testing and feedback to Revinate, fostering a collaborative partnership aimed at continuous improvement.

Revinate Marketing’s flexible campaign build options empowered Dragonfly to craft campaigns with precision, mixing and matching HTML, text boxes, and image boxes to ensure standardized footers and seamless communication across all channels. This flexibility not only streamlined the campaign creation process but also enabled Mr. C Miami to deliver captivating content tailored to the preferences of their diverse audience.
