The Facebook app that will turn your fans into customers.
With the boom in social media scene it is a fact of life now that Facebook, Twitter and the like simply can't be avoided anymore! The Facebook Statistics alone are painfully obvious. With more than 750 million active users, 50% of whom log on to Facebook in any given day with the average user having 130 friends, and people spending over 700 billion minutes per month on Facebook social media is a must for business owners big and small. Twitter statistics, also on the rise, report that Twitter has a staggering 225 million active users, and with over 1 billion tweets per week there is a lot of chatter on the social wire.
So where does this put us in the vacation industry?
In a great position actually. People on social media outlets want to share their lives with their friends. If you look at any given Facebook wall the average vacationer will have pictures, funny events, cool things they did, and yes "pictures of the AWESOME vacation rental they stayed in" hopefully courtesy of you!
Some of our clients at VRM have made great use of the social boom. Mike Wood from Hilton Head Vacation Rentals has over 20,000 fans subscribed to his Facebook Page and that number is still growing every month.
So that got us thinking...
What if there was a way that we could take those 20,000 fans, and not only market the online booking function of the existing website but also, create a way that they could book a property online through Facebook without ever leaving the Facebook website (as research suggests people want to do when they are on Facebook).
With this upgrade you will get a custom designed Facebook app which VRM will install for you, you will also receive one month of our Facebook advertising services (ad cost not included), designed to expand your fan base as well as generate leads. One of our clients using our Facebook Advertising services saw a 749 fan increase in one month. (visit our website for more information about our Online Marketing Services.)
If you would like to have the Facebook app installed on your page contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or call our office at 866-849-0817.
After the app has been installed Facebook users will be able to search and book properties from Facebook as well as add the app to their page or profile allowing all their friends to see your app and search for properties they want to book.
