As a hotelier or travel marketer, you need to be fully aware of and keep abreast of the ever-changing ideas of Facebook and App generations. This is essential for companies as they need to be updated for faster progress checks. This is especially true for travel companies. Facebook with its 500+ million users has many travel apps that can help you attract guests to your website and ultimately through the doors of your hotel. Travel apps like Kayak, TravelPromoter, HotelsWithMe, and TripAdvisor, etc.
According to a leading industry expert, you can use your Facebook app as an exceptional means of communication with your guests. You need to focus on what will be relevant to the users and what will attract them. Local currencies, local languages and content; that's what users are looking for. After all, it is imperative that the language you use is "Facebook style" (without any corporate jargon) as a friend to speak to you. You also need to formulate a promotional activity to create an understanding of the app. When you extend enticing offers to Facebook fans like special offers, discount codes, and exclusive travel plans, etc., it increases your chances of making sales. This will provide permanent additions to the number of members of your application through chain reaction; which makes your website / page extremely popular.
Another benefit of using the Travel App on Facebook is that it encourages group buying, which will contribute to your goal of increased sales. Bulk shopping is not an alien concept in the travel industry. Tours are around and have enjoyed continued popularity over the years. By bringing it to the largest social network in the world, i.e. "Facebook", you can make it convenient for families, colleagues and friends who are already connected to the site, to gather, discuss and make travel decisions on Facebook. Your Travel App on Facebook becomes a common platform for friends, family and colleagues, allowing them to collectively choose and book a hotel, making sure everyone is happy with the choice. This eliminates the need for the group to sit in front of the same computer. Some of the popularly used Travel Apps on Facebook are
An interesting feature that can be included on your Facebook app on the same page is the Chat feature, where interested parties can have on-site discussions about planning their trip, etc., which ultimately helps them achieve consensus.
