Hotel website to booking engine checklist
Make sure that your website navigation is simple and that you have a clear call to action. Use a familiar call to action such as Book Now or Make a reservation. Make sure that your booking widget is well visible, the best price guarantee clearly highlighted and the special offers are easy to find.
Clearly highlight the offers most likely to be attractive to your audience. You need to clearly highlight your special offers and personalize them as much as possible. For example, show your Early Bird offer to the markets which have a long lead period and the Last Minute offer to the short-haul market. Add a bit of urgency by displaying a flash sale offer available for a limited time.
Website loading time
Make sure that your website loads fast enough on both desktop and mobile devices. Every second counts. One second delay in page response can result in a 7% reduction in conversions.
Website traffic quality
It’s important to see if your marketing campaigns are bringing traffic to your website from the right markets. Target the markets which historically book the most on your website and have high conversion rates.
