A good place to start for hotels is the goal of driving website clicks or conversions as this is very similar to the Google Adwords PPC advertising your hotel is currently using to drive traffic. We will thus be focusing on this type of campaign.

Step 3: Give your Campaign a name, get your conversion tracking code in place and select the start and end dates.
Step 4: Create a new tweet with a website card or select from one of your existing tweets.
Best practice: Use a Website Card to improve campaign performance as the card contains multiple links to your hotel website.
