Reading Time: 2 minutes

More and more independent properties are looking into adopting the best technologies in the market to improve their e-commerce. Here are 4 tips to keep in mind when planning your e-Commerce strategy.

Strong presence

The most important aspect of e-commerce has to do with the way you present your business and sell your service. It is not only about the looks but also about the navigation, how the information is presented, trust mechanisms, simplicity in the transactions and confidence that your website transmits to the visitor. You need to use your website as your best sales representative and for that you need to provide it with the proper tools to stimulate visitors to book and stay on the website.

Offer diversification

Knowing what your customers want is very important but it is even more important to be able to provide it to them. Your website should not only offer the best available rate but also it should offer a range of different experiences where the visitor can choose from. That way they are going to be able to book a room based on their needs and not necessarily because is the cheapest offer. This will certainly increase your revenue and make customers happier with their choices.

Good visibility

It is also very important for a business to successfully drive traffic to their website. I like to say: “no traffic no business” you need visitors to buy your rooms. This task is not easy and can be time consuming but when is well executed it provides great results. Luckily there are technology partners for the hotel industry that can provide you with tools to easily manage your online visibility.

Staying on top of the game

E-commerce success is an ongoing process; you need to stay alert because with new online technologies, travelers quickly change their searching patterns. What is fashion now might not be in the next 6 months. So make sure you know what is going on in the industry and what social media channels your customers are using.

This process takes time and it requires you attention to work properly, but once you have set your strategy you can put it on automatic pilot and enjoy the ride.
