We are thrilled to welcome Mason Feudner to the Visiting Media family this month! Being born and raised in Napa Valley, or as he calls it, the “epicenter of the hospitality industry”, has allowed Mason to build a solid foundation of experience within the hotel and restaurant fields. His background and enthusiasm has made him the perfect new addition to our sales team.
After studying marketing at Sonoma State Mason took a position at Meadowood in the marketing department. Read on to get to know Mason’s thoughts on TrueTour® and his transition to Visiting Media:
The Transition to Visiting Media
After spending some time exploring the platform and viewing a live demo with our founder, Ben, Mason saw the full potential that TrueTour had to offer users. He immediately gained excitement about the technology and reached out to us for open job opportunities. Fast forward to a few months later and here we are!
From a marketing and sales standpoint how will TrueTour revolutionize the industry?
Coming from a field that holds a sense of luxury and high-end values Mason believes that TrueTour is the upscale option for presenting your property. “It’s the next step for marketing, and not only for high-end products but for those looking to stand out and present themselves as high level”.
How has TrueTour benefited the sales team at your previous company?
A great point that Mason dove into was how helpful it was for a sales associate to pull out an iPad or phone with a prospective bride or planner and show them how an empty room can be transformed and brought to life.
Feedback from the End-User
Mason found that TrueTour helped to alleviate a lot of confusion between the reservations team and guests. It allowed guests to experience rooms and suites so they knew exactly what to expect when they arrived. “You can’t really hide anything within the platform, photos can sometimes be misleading, but with TrueTour you get the full picture – you know exactly what you’re going to get when you get there.”
Mason is a big sports fan. You’ll find him rooting for the Warriors and Raiders. He enjoys being outside and hiking in the California area. Being from Napa Valley, he loves good food and wine!
Special thanks to Mason for taking the time to chat about his background and thoughts on TrueTour!
