A Hop, Skip and a Stay
As an Online Travel Provider, you know how fierce the competition is. A slip in the search engines and a bad marketing gimmick can really wreck your week. That's because everyone's essentially selling many of the same travel deals. Customer loyalty in your sector tends to be low- when in 'booking mode', travelers will hop around to multiple travel sites just to make sure you're the cheapest. What if those people wanted to stay on your site longer, and liked you more because of it, at least enough to come back again and again without hopping around like they used to? Once you deliver a comprehensive, actionable entertainment guide to your online customers that can be customized, planned and booked on the spot, you're going to one step closer to helping them with their travel purchases, while building loyalty and trust.
Products and Benefits for Online Travel Agencies
Google research found that the average traveler spends 6.7 weeks searching the web and performs 8.1 travel related searches before booking. Over time the range of influences is narrowed down, a destination is chosen, and the consumer books a trip. If your travel site is simply a place to book the cheapest room or fare, your customers will only go to the site when they want the cheapest rate. In other words, you're just a number and a commodity. However, if they visit your site and find fantastic events and dining spots to check out while on their trip, they're much more likely to book and come back to you when thinking of their next stay. Why?, because you've gone above and beyond their expectations as a travel provider and offered them a simple, contextual way to plan a richer itinerary without having to go elsewhere.
