Shopping Activation

  • Designed to trigger the guest’s attention
  • Different messages can be set up: Last reservation, last week stays, best rate guaranteed, ADR, availability, today’s best offer

Why is this tool important? The rolling 12 months results extracted from GuestCentric back office revealed that the percentage of direct room nights sold through Shopping Activation messages was around 10% for the ten best performing hotels in terms of nights sold. Furthermore, 54% of GuestCentric customers had at least one reservation coming in after a click on a shopping activation widget.

Many bookings are indirectly influenced by this feature (with visitors seeing it, but clicking elsewhere) and therefore its actual impact is even bigger. Set up now
