(ThySistas.com) For anyone in the home party game, you know the toughest part of this gig is getting the bookings. You have proved yourself in absolutely every other area of running a great party, but getting the numbers is always a perpetual battle. Don’t worry, though. Everyone involved in home parties has been here. We have all laid awake at night, completely frustrated by the question, “why can’t I get bookings!” Well, it could be that your booking system is the thing that is letting you down.
User experience is the key to success in our industry, so having a system that not only makes it easier to book but also encourages
As such, here is our list of must-have features that your online booking system should focus on:
Be As Picturesque As Possible
The more beautiful pictures you have on your website the better because this is what will connect with your customers and clients the most. They will use these images to paint a picture and start imagining the experience straight away. Don’t just focus on the product either; have images that show you and your team and work, and focus on the little details that set you apart from the crowd.
Go Real Time
People want to have the easiest experience possible. They want to get in, book and get out. So don’t do anything that will jeopardise this. Having a real time booking system will allow them to book a party that is convenient for them, and it will completely get rid of all hassle, time and money problems involved when people phone in to check your availability. This will help you a huge amount too.
Speed Up The Process
People these days get put off by the smallest of delays to their day. It is part of the on-demand lifestyle we have gotten so comfortable with. That is where a mobile ID scanner can have a huge impact because it will allow a client or customer to complete their registration in seconds. It may not seem like a big deal to you, but something as menial as completing a form puts a lot of people off. We don’t have time for that sort of thing anymore.
Show Them it Is Safe
People want reassurances as much as anything because, well, the world is a terrifying place, especially when it comes to handing over money. The best and safest way to nullify any doubts that may be filling your client’s heads is to use Paypal. This has so many business benefits. Not only will this boost your credibility, it will also say that you really value the privacy and protection of your clients, and that will go a long way when it comes to securing more bookings.
It Is A Global World
We mentioned it with the images, now we’ll mention it again; details go a long way. That is where a detail like having multiple language options on your site can snatch up a big portion of the market and attract new bookings your way. If you are the only person to offer a Spanish translation, for example, then you are will no doubt see your interest boom.
