Are You Missing Out on Bookings? Take the Quiz to find Out!
Think of all the ways your hostel is present on the internet. Between OTA listings, Facebook, your website, Instagram, Google Maps, it's enough to make your head spin. However, these are all "touch points" on your customers' path to booking. Neglecting them can be fatal.
When is the last time you updated your Hostelworld description? Do the photos on your Google Maps listing look sharp? First impressions are everything. Make sure your hostel shines.
We've seen hostels in major cities with ten competitors receive 80% of their bookings directly. How do they do it? They give travelers every reason to stay on your website. A fast, mobile-optimized design is essential. Thorough, engaging content that helps travelers research their destination is also great for your search rankings. Special promotions available only on your website sweeten the deal.
Social media is a one of the most powerful tools in your hostel's marketing toolbox. Are you sporadically posting random photos, or do you have a carefully considered strategy, that targets your target customers and motivates them to book your hostel?
I'm Byron Bunda and I'm on a mission to help hostels. From 40 beds to 500, and everyone in between, I want to see every hostel succeed.
I had BackpackerBiz redo my website, which is just amazing. I can make changes myself which I love. A very professional company to use, especially as we are in a different country. Byron is very thorough and has creative ideas to help bring more traffic to your website. It's always a tough decision to change web developers, but we are happy we gave this a go, with today's technology and with BBS always available to help, any newcomers should feel comfortable with their service.
Professional and easy to deal with. They were helpful in clarifying our best options for photos for promotional purposes. The photos are amazing and show the hostel to its best advantage. Good service from friendly people
Had our new website completed in no time and has done a few adjustments for us since, thanks for all your helps guys!
