Capabilities: Enriching your hotel's Facebook Presence
Social Media is an essential new, powerful way to promote your hotel through a network of your most loyal fans and their trusted friends. Hundreds of millions of people use social networks like Facebook and micro-blogging services like Twitter because they directly connect them with the friends and family who are important to them. When a person 'likes' or 'tweets' a website, movie or service, all his friends and family hear about it. This trusted network of recommendations is emerging as one of the best possible ways to introduce your hotel to new guests. With your hotel's facebook page you can easily broadcast promotions and updates to your guests and generate the potential of social marketing.
But establishing your hotel's social media presence can be intimidating and overwhelming. buuteeq makes creating and managing a compelling Facebook page for your hotel easy. All buuteeq subscriptions include a Facebook page for your hotel, including our free subscription which gives you an easy to manage, great looking Facebook presence.
Here's how it works: buuteeq sets up your Facebook page with custom-built tabs to elegantly display pertinent information to your potential guests, such as rooms, rates, and photo galleries. Our team will integrate the buuteeq powered content into your existing Facebook page, or we can help you set up a new one. This content is automatically updated as you make changes in the buuteeq BackOffice. Your buuteeq powered website integrates with your Facebook page to increase your fans and audience.
With your buuteeq powered Facebook presence, your hotel can take advantage of the next generation of online social marketing.

How to Install the App On Your Facebook Fan Page
Facebook has become the most powerful social network in the world. Hundreds of millions of people use Facebook every day to chat with friends, follow brands and book rooms. buuteeq gives you a beautiful Facebook presence optimized specifically for hotels. With buuteeq's free Facebook app, you can show off your hotel's rooms, high resolution, glossy photos, detailed information and rich maps, right from your Facebook fan page. Our buuteeq wizard will help you get your hotel presence up on Facebook in a few, quick, easy steps.
If you don't have a Facebook page yet, go to facebook.com/pages/create.php to create a new one. When done, continue with the installation wizard in the buuteeq BackOffice.
When you first arrive in buuteeq's BackOffice, you will see that the information field has already been filled with the information you used to sign up with buuteeq. Give it a once-over to make sure it is correct, and make any changes necessary.
The 'Property Photo' will be the major hero photo slideshow shown at the very top of your Facebook page. Click the photo and you will see your photo library. Click 'upload' and select the best photos of your property from your computer hard drive. Click 'upload photos' and when done, click 'close'. Now, click and drag to select the photos you just uploaded, and then click 'create a new group'. These photos will act as a slideshow at the very top of your Facebook app.
Next, click 'Add Room Segments'. Click the 'add a new room segment' button, and fill out your room information, including the name of the room, its description, and photos of the room.
The rooms you create here will be shown in a list on your Facebook page.
Each segment is defined as a unique room rate. For example, if you are a small property, each segment could be one physical room; if you are a larger property with many room types, like suites or budget rooms, each segment could be a room type.
If you want the reservation buttons on your Facebook page to go to the reservation page of your choice, paste the link to your reservation page in the Reservation URL field.
Next, click 'upload additional photos'. Click 'create a new photo album', name it and select the photos on your computer you wish to upload. These photos will be shown in your photo gallery on your app. Each album can be about specific things; for example, you can have a 'weddings' album with pictures of weddings you've hosted, or an 'exteriors' album with pictures of your property's exterior. The pictures you added to your rooms in the previous step were automatically added as an album in your photo gallery.
Next, click 'create local attractions'. Your property's location was already added to your map when you added its address upon signing up. Click 'edit' and correct any information if it is wrong. Hover over the image field and click 'change' to place one photo of your property, which will appear on your map. Click 'save' when done.
Click 'add a point' to add a unique point of interest to your map that you think guests would like to know about, such as a local museum, a tasty restaurant, or a nearby airport. Click 'edit' like you did previously to fill in its unique information and add photos.
When you're all done, click the big 'install now' button to add the app to Facebook. If you're not done filling out your info, don't worry! You can make changes to your app later and these changes will immediately be pushed to your Facebook page without you having to reinstall it.
On the next page, select your property's Facebook page. Click 'allow accesses'. Presto! You're all done. To view your new app, click the 'hotel info' link in your page's navigation.
You can edit the app further by changing its name and making it the default landing page for new guests. For more information on how to do these steps, and on how to create a Facebook page if you haven't already, read our Facebook guides on the buuteeq company blog.
Enjoy the power of your new, fully-branded Facebook app, with your property's info, rooms, beautiful photos and detailed locations, hand-crafted by you.
