We have a package just for hotel franchises. Learn more about what buuteeq has to offer your franchise: Hotel Franchises Pricing Plan Many guests choose to stay at franchise hotels because they trust the brand. They have visited before, know what to expect and want the comfort and amenities the franchise is known for. But the world is filled with franchise hotels, and even if yours is one of only a few in your town, how can guests weed through millions of franchise hotels listed online to find yours? How does your franchise hotel stand out? buuteeq answers these questions by creating a digital marketing strategy for your franchise hotel that combines web, mobile and social marketing while providing your guests with a modern, beautiful website that is easy to navigate and optimized to perform well on search engines.
Guests expect professionalism and a well-oiled operation when staying at a franchise hotel. Owners need to convey this professionalism on their customized website. With buuteeq, franchise hotelkeepers publish high-resolution photos that are displayed in an information architecture designed to put the information guests are looking for right where guests expect to find it. With two different branding customization tools, hoteliers have explicit control over their colors, fonts, logos and everything else that defines their franchise hotel's unique character.
Millions of guests are on Facebook. Many are making reservations on Facebook. This is a market that innkeepers can't ignore if they want to maximize their online reservations. Guests go to franchise hotels to have a low-key, comfortable experience, and then they go on Facebook to chat with their friends about it or connect with the lodge they visited and enjoyed. With a custom Facebook presence that syncs your rooms, photos and maps to Facebook, buuteeq gives you an optimized social presence for your guests.
Over 50% of all web traffic will happen on mobile devices by 2014. Whether it's a tablet computer like an iPad or a smartphone like an iPhone or Android phone, guests are using mobile devices to make purchases and online reservations. Most websites look horrible on smaller screens typical of mobile phones. buuteeq fixes this by designing highly-optimized templates built for mobile devices and that work on all of them from feature phones to smartphones to tablet computers. Your franchise hotel guests can browse your website and make reservations in their preferred format, whether web, mobile or social.
Instead of allowing online travel agencies to take a percentage of every reservation you make, buuteeq's online reservation system integrates with your website and takes NO commission costs meaning you keep 100% of every dollar you make using buuteeq's booking engine. Our branded, unique website lures guests in, giving them a better experience, encouraging them to make a direct reservation from you, not someone else. Additionally, if you have a reservation system you want to keep, buuteeq can integrate with it be it a 3rd party solution, an external link or a simple contact form.
buuteeq's CMS gives you precise control over all aspects of your new website; colors, fonts, logos, theme, feel, text, photos, everything. Additionally, our Front Desk module syncs rates and pricing with inventory and online reservations, so that you can see exactly what is going on at your lodge at any given time right from one module in our BackOffice. See how many rooms you have reserved, available or promised away. Open and close reservations, gather credit card information and learn more about your customers.
Marketing has changed. Billboards and catalogue ads are no longer as effective as they once were. Marketing has gone online, and buuteeq tackles your web marketing three ways; On-Web, In-Mobile and In-Social.
buuteeq develops your website to not only look good but to be functionally high performance. Founded by ex-Microsoft and Sony employees, buuteeq has combined decades of web development experience to produce a CMS that is highly optimized for search engines and finely-tuned for usability. Guests have a better browsing experience and you perform better on search engines.
International travel is exploding, with travelers coming to America and Americans going abroad. In order to capture this traveling segment, your website must be localized. buuteeq's unique localization tool allows you to publish a version of your website in any number of languages. This not only provides a service for you international guests and compels them to make a reservation, but it helps your website perform better on search engines in those languages.
With buuteeq, you can track the browsing activities of your guests on your website. See what pages are most popular, which ones capture guests the longest, which pages cause guests to bounce, and what keywords are most successful in roping in traffic from search engines. These detailed charts, graphs and statistics can help you develop your marketing strategy and edit your website content to attract more guests.
