Best Practices for Your Branded Online Booking Website
Make a Good Impression
Websites have roughly eight seconds to make an impression on a user. No pressure, right?
Start with a captivating title that’ll have visitors lost in thoughts about their next vacation. When crafting your title and subtitles, ask yourself:
- What type of guests am I targeting? (i.e. business, pleasure, family)
- What can I say about my listings that is special and unique?
- How can my listing’s location add to my guests’ experience?
- What popular local landmarks are nearby?
When included as keywords in your site’s headings, all of these details have the potential to increase your ranking in search results and keep viewers on your page once they’ve found it.
Make It Your Own
There’s a reason you should have your own online booking website and it’s about more than just avoiding OTA fees. A personal vacation booking site is the perfect platform through which to showcase your company’s brand and create trust amongst guests. Once they know who you are, they’ll know they can depend on you, and seeing your colors, logo and other representatives of your brand will assure them they’re in the right place!
That’s why it’s important to take advantage of our customization options and add your own logo, color scheme and site domain.
Make Them Book
Content cannot be ignored, and yet it’s one of the main aspects of a booking site that property management websites tend to overlook.
This is the place to sell your listings and remove any doubts your potential guests may have. The website generator will import the descriptions of all the properties on your Guesty dashboard, so make sure those descriptions are up to par.
You can also add ”About” and ”Services” sections for your company that will be visible on your Guesty Booking Website homepage, as well as a map that plots all your listings.
The Ultimate Channel
Creating a vacation booking site isn’t just a means of casting a wider net. Nor is it just another platform from which to market your rentals – it’s your platform, there to tell potential guests what accommodations they can book and, more importantly, who they are booking them from.
Sure, travelers want a nice place to stay, but they also want the security of knowing their host is a reliable, responsible and experienced property manager. With Guesty’s website generator, you can give them that.
