Managing an accommodation establishment is hard work. Between housekeeping, purchasing, financials and customer service you might battle to find time for marketing efforts at all, never mind getting your name into line of sight of the internet-browsing potential client. Of course, various channels are available through which you can do this, but updating and maintaining each of these simply becomes too much to deal with on a daily basis.

You have set up your property with to the various sites available via NightsBridge and added the booking button to your website. Now what? How can you get more bookings?
Remember that your business is competing with hundreds of other properties that may have more convenient locations, competitive prices and larger marketing budgets. If the bookings don’t just come streaming in, you may have some work to do on how you present yourself online. Here’s some tips from a few of our partner sites to improve your visibility on their websites and hopefully increase the number of bookings.
The most important item noted by all of our partners is to ensure that you upload appealing photographs of your property. Many also encourage you to add more images using their photo gallery functionality. “Ensuring that you have high quality, professional pictures will correlate directly to increased bookings. We know from our website statistics that a good set of photos can more than double your enquiry rate” says Marcel van de Ghinste, Director of TravelGround.com. When you are choosing your images remember that you are selling what the guest is going to experience, not just the facilities on site.
