Some SaaS platforms focused on helping hotels increase their return on meeting space. They provide solutions to handle complex problems by making event planning online simple, fast, and enjoyable.
5 tips to drive more traffic to your hotel events:
- Viral loops
- Build a referral program
- Use Facebook Messenger or Whatsapp
- Tagged with a friend
Let's see how to implement them.
1. Viral loops
Find candidates who have the resources and skills to develop, implement, and evaluate a viral loop for your business. Critical success factors are picking a product that is already in use and popular. Another key factor is having an active and growing user base. A good viral loop encourages customers to share you with others in their network. Have your users set up automated invitations on Facebook to share events and updates? An automated invitation is downloaded into a contact's calendar as a reminder of an upcoming event.
2. Build a referral program
In which existing customers are incentivized to refer new clients. For example for every X new customer that comes using customer 1's referral link or code, you can add Y amount of money to the original customer's credit card statement. This concept can be applied to many different industries and companies.
Users will be able to share with their own personal or professional networks. This will help the marketing and promotion of the platform via social media. Additionally, communication through email landing pages are an effective way to improve conversions for your campaigns.
Make it a ‘must have’ event and party planning software by providing key value-added services free of charge. The more value you provide, the more users will want to purchase the premium service.
4. Use Facebook Messenger or Whatsapp
Help new users share ideas and create events with Facebook Messenger or Whatsapp. The templates quickly build on the back of a portrait photo or imported photo or solid background. The user simply has to say 'send an event on your website' in messenger with name, date, and location, and tap a message to complete the reservation.
It is important for users to reach you quickly. Live support platforms are one of the most important items, especially for users who do not want to talk on the phone and do not want to be stuck with mail slowness.
5. Tagged with a friend
Create a live Twitter screen during event periods and have users who tag you appear there. Users who want to be on the screen will tag you more. You will grow by gaining more visibility and awareness.
