Does Las Vegas, Nevada Have Any Art or Culture?
JediJoy and I took a walk downtown Las Vegas on a Friday afternoon. Pictures speak louder than words; however, security informed us that taking photos may result in us getting sued by The D or the Golden Gate Hotel for "copyright infringement". The security guard couldn't remember the phrase.
Why Would The D Hotel in Las Vegas Sue Tourists for Taking Photos?
Unfortunately. the casino moguls in Las Vegas have become too greedy. They will actually sue a paying guest for taking a photo with their building in the photo.
I asked a senior executive a a major hotel and casino in Las Vegas why not use social media for marketing purposes. For example, "Hey, here's me on Fremont Street!" captioned with a photo of The D Hotel or The Golden Gate Hotel & Casino in the background. You could only hope the person gets a million subscribers, views or followers based on that photo or video.
Because when thousand people see a photo with your hotel, one person will think "That's where I want to stay next". Human psyche. Marketing 101. It's the power of tens. One one percent of one percent will always buy whatever you are selling. Further example: Send one thousand people a tweet. 100 will click on it; 10 will "heart" it or engage with it and at least one person will subscribe or buy or whatever. Try it.
But when an invdual tweets a photo saying "look what I bought", the buying percentages are substation ally higher. Even in Biblical times, they knew the best salesperson is an actual customer through word of mouth testimonials.
But, if you are afraid that your "salespeople" will say soming bad about your business, perhaps consider changing is bad about your business rather than attempting to silence their voice. Its like pressure cooker; the more you suppress, when it explodes its gonna be huge.
Anyway's, the executive vice-president said the reason we don't allow photos of our b building is "because we don't want some local yo-yo or outside photographer gaining followers or subscribers using our architecture. They have to pay us if they want to use a photo of our building."

Derek & Greg Stevens own The D, The Golden Gate and the new Circa. Perhaps they should consider using social media to promote their brand rather than making every guest who walks through Dowtown Fremont feel like they are in 1930s Germany, complete with illiterate security guards.
