1. Organic Social Media

Whilst social media tends not to be the channel that most bookings will come directly from, it is one of the best methods of creating brand awareness for your business.

Studies have shown that in order for someone to take action, the product or service has to be seen at least 7 times. This number increases as the offering becomes more expensive. Posting high-quality content regularly to multiple platforms is one of the best ways to get in front of a lot of people consistently which helps to increase the likelihood that they convert.

2. Post in Holiday Property Facebook Groups

Across Facebook there are groups full of people looking to decide where they should go on their next holiday, all of them are potential new customers.

There are a lot of accommodation owners posting in these kind of groups so make sure your posts are high-quality and stand out. Also, be sure to follow each group’s rules to keep the admins happy and not generate any negativity around your business.

Guests who feel like they’ve had an amazing experience with some unique touches at your accommodation are much more likely to sing your praises to their friends, families and co-workers etc.
