CASINO OPERATIONS & MARKETING
To set all of your individual casino efforts up for success, it requires sound operations strategies. We do just that by partnering with you to analyze and set strategies and goals for key areas that include your budget, EBITDA and property operations, with a focus on gaming, hospitality, human resources and supporting amenities.
We strongly believe that having a carefully designed marketing strategy is the foundation of a successful casino operation. Everything you do in marketing should have a clear strategic objective. With that in mind, the ROI team will become an extension of your marketing team. We’ll be working alongside you – researching, consulting, developing short and long term planning goals, and strategizing on how to increase your revenues.
When utilized properly, direct mail and email are two of the most powerful tools in marketing to increase retention and revenue. We’ll work with you on how to best target your most valuable players in the right way at the right time to grow your revenue through effective direct marketing campaigns. We rely on our experiences and knowledge to customize the right direct marketing tools to fit your specific needs. We will help determine what direct mail pieces and digital solutions will best speak to, and create a positive response from, your guests.
Promotions are key to creating excitement on the gaming floor. Working with your team, we'll develop promotions that not only generate buzz on the casino floor, but also support specific objectives. Our team understands how to make a promotion exciting while also increasing your revenue.
Your players club is at the heart of your casino. It’s the main point of contact for your best players and has more to do with how you are perceived by your target audience than any other single aspect of your operation. We’ll help you ensure that you’re getting the most out of your club. We will evaluate and analyze your program and make recommendations based on best practices to take your club to the next level. This could be anything from helping to maximize your technology to a complete redesign.
A well-executed player development team can positively impact revenue through a strategic, proactive approach, in conjunction with building strong player relationships. Our comprehensive approach, which includes program development, training and execution, will prepare your hosts and key marketing staff by providing the knowledge, tools and skills needed to drive strong customer loyalty.
ANALYSIS & MEASUREMENT
Data and fancy spreadsheets are our sweet spot. We’ll help you crunch the numbers to ensure the programs you have in place are working by working with you to build and standardize a process to track programs, players and reinvestment in comparison with budget.

VIRTUAL HOSPITALITY GROUP, LLC (VHG)
MARK HEALEY, Principle
ROI is pleased to partner with Virtual Hospitality Group (VHG), and its subsidiaries who were formed to harness the expertise of their owners and partners across several hospitality disciplines including managing and operating hospitality at Native American resorts, casinos, and business enterprises.
VHG provides memorable guest experiences by leveraging training, mentoring, purchasing programs, financial controls, and awesome guest services that clients need delivered. However, VHG also recognizes and embraces that while hospitality is an integral part of the services clients need to deliver, it may not be the ultimate measure of their success.
Additionally, VHG believes that every venue and every service which creates guest interaction is by definition a “brand” itself. VHG are “Brand Facilitators” who engage the hospitality, goods and services products along with and among all client departments in the positive reinforcement of the venue or destination’s overarching brand. VHG believes that orchestrating services and aligning with national or regional branded food and beverage concepts to create a portfolio of offerings strengthens the venue’s core services and overall reputation.
