Cogwheel Analytics Debuts in HITEC E20X Start Up Pitch Contest


In June 2022, Founder, Stephanie Smith of Cogwheel Marketing launched Cogwheel Analytics in the HFTP HITEC e20X Entrepreneur Startup Pitch competition.

How the Hotel Marketing BI Tool Works

Designed for users of the above properties, it provides both data on the above properties and data on individual hotels. It separates data into these digital marketing disciplines for the purpose of analyzing total online presence:

  • / Website Metrics including Channel Mix. Source data and main referring domains
  • Paid media metrics including Expedia Travel Ads, Koddi, Google Ads and Display
  • Metrics assessments including volume of reviews and responses by channel, sentiment analysis and feedback
  • Social media metrics including organic and paid performance
  • OTA metrics including information from Expedia and – COMING SOON!
  • Search Engine Optimization and Google My Business Metrics – COMING SOON!

Cogwheel Analytics aggregates reserved data from various sources to compile website performance highlights, paid media and ad campaigns, review analytics, social media and online travel agency data points.

Currently, the platform can support most major hotel brands as well as independent hotels.
