Many users of Easy InnKeeping take advantage of the Easy WebRez component to integrate online reservation bookings with their property management system. But did you know you can also offer more than room reservations with your Easy WebRez?
With the influence of social media, a “check-in” takes on a different meaning these days. Many people enjoy posting their locations to Facebook and other social media sites, via their cell phones. If you’re a hotel, motel, inn, bed and breakfast, or vacation rental company that has guests physically checking in, why not let their virtual check-ins help promote your business?
There’s no doubt about it. These days a small business has to be aware of the role the internet, and all the various social media sites on the internet, plays in successfully marketing the business. But I know first- hand that navigating through the maze of information and how-to’s can be overwhelming.
We all know marketing is an important aspect of business, and using the internet adds many more options. There’s company websites and blogs (J), facebook, twitter. But sometimes it helps to take a more direct approach, and contact the people you know are already interested in staying at your hotel, motel, b&b or vacation rental. You know, previous guests – people who have stayed there before and might be very interested in finding out what your latest promo or package deal is.
Communication with your guests is very important, especially for the guest during the reservation process, but also for you, the property owner/manager/staff. Email is a quick and efficient way for hotels, motels, b&bs, resorts, and other properties to send confirmation letters, invoice letters, or deposit receipts to their guests. Reminders for upcoming reservations as well as thank you letters following a guest stay can also be sent. Previous guests can be sent monthly newsletters or upcoming promotional offers.
“Is there an app for that?” How many times have you heard that in the past several years? Being electronically connected has become very important, and people have come to rely on the convenience of smart phones, I-pads and other tablets. While at times it may seem constant smart phone usage is a nuisance, many people are not only adapting to the changes, but embracing them.
That's right. Not only can you reach us here at Easy InnKeeping by phone, email or live chat, but now we will be sharing more about our company and our property management software, as well as training and tips to get the most out of Easy InnKeeping.
