Benefit from joined Booking.com Event?

Nowadays on promotion tab on extranet, you can simply join Booking.com upcoming campaign/promotion/event, just click for activate and save.

 

This event it can help promote your hotel via many Booking.com marketing channel such as E-newsletter, Facebook, specific landing page, etc.

 

So I would recommend you all to join all available marketing campaign/event

Yeah, maybe. If that fits my criteria.

Remember that promotions stack, so if you're already having a few set up, adding new ones will not overwrite it and it will lower your rate below sea level :)

Just my $0.02 on this.

Hey Bandara Group,

Thanks for the info! Did you see the one for June? It's 30% discount for bookings made on 20 June for dates of your choosing between July and Sept. I'm glad Zsolt reminded me that the discount stacks, because I have some of my own promotions running.

Those will be turned off quite soon methinks... I just always worry that the system doesn't read that I've activated something. It's on and active but it still pops up in my Oppertunities tab.

Keep well!

@Zslot - Thuild @Leandri Klopper Thank you for comment. I agree with both of you that Booking.com promotion system are quiet confusing not like other OTA's.

I would like to share our tip to both of you. You can create new rate plan for room type that you want to join those campaign. Once you activate/join specific campaign you just choose the new rate plan, so the discount will not add on from your existing promotion discount.

Of course you can link it to different rate plans, but if you work with Channel Managers, there isn't any use to keep adding rate plans, rather just use what is already added.

I am not happy with adding more than 5 rate plans to a room type, it will become a hassle to organize and keep track of each. Not to mention the work necessary to change something.

Hey Bandara group,

Thanks I actually didn't think of that and it's not a bad idea. I only have two rate plans on each unit so adding a third won't be too hard for me.

Keep posting! Keep Well!

@Thuild, Yes I do with agree and totally understand with you that it could be hassle to do. But with the right marketing campaign for your hotel, it might be worst to do compare with conversion revenue that you might earn.

@Leandri Klopper, Your welcome.
