Back then, it was necessary to use a third party app to do the integration. Today Facebook is able to provide a very good solution that will make that integration much easier. In the following article we will describe how.

Things are going well for businesses in the tourism industry. Businesses are reporting record revenue numbers as people are traveling more. Why? One big reason is due to many of the travel sites, such as Booking.com, TripAdvisor, and Expedia, are making it easy for people to find and book what they want. You can find a place to stay or various activities and tours in the destination you are traveling to. On one hand, these sites are beneficial for both the customer and the business to ‘find’ each other, but on the other hand, it doesn’t come cheap to the business as it has to pay commission to these big travel sites for any bookings received through their portal. This is why, smart businesses in the lodging or tour industry will always be looking for way to get more traffic and bookings on their own through their website.
It is not an easy thing to compete with those billion dollars companies, and ignoring them may not be the best strategy either. These travel sites can certainly help your sales, but it is also essential for your businesses to maintain a certain independence in order to reduce risks, be in control, and make more money with each reservation. You may have a very professional website, but if it is lying dormant out there on the web you will not make it on your own. Spread your voice, reach out to the world, and take back control with the following tips.
Your website is where most of your customers find out about your business. You are pleased to have a great website that attracts people to your business, but is this website helping you in your day to day work? Did you know that a good website can save you numerous hours of unnecessary work?
Time is running out! Follow these 5 tips below to help save time for both you and your customers.
1. Make your website straightforward
When it comes to designing your website, the old adage KISS is a good advice: “Keep It Simple, Sweetie”.
If you think your customers call you because they want to talk to you, think again! Customers want to find the important information as quickly as possible without the hassle of calling or sending an email. If it is difficult to find the key information on your website, then often people will get frustrated and call you and waste some of your precious time. Read the rest of this entry »
As a business, keeping in touch with your customers is a great way to get repeat business year after year. Sending emails about special offers or newsletters by email or regular mail are wonderful ways to let your customers know about what is going on with your business. This is great if you are a seasonal business, such as a vacation rental, tour business, or watersports rental, to communicate with customers as your season is ending or during the off season. You can easily extract your customer’s contact information in the WebReserv System by running a Customer Report.
Creating the report to use for an email marketing campaign can be completed in a few easy steps.
