Revenue Management strategies include a wide range of opportunities to increase revenue in all the departments of the hotel. The hotel can utilise the different concepts to maximise and optimise revenues; however, not all can be used at the same time. Some of the concepts of the RM practised relate to pricing, inventory, marketing and distribution channels.

From the macro-perspective, it is crucial to include these opportunities and threats into effective revenue management practices for the individual in business and property.
