Choosing the Right Digital Compendium App for Your Accommodation Business
When it comes to selecting the ideal software for your digital compendium app or Welcome Guide, it’s crucial to find the perfect fit for your accommodation business.
At Orana Stay, we understand the challenges you face daily, and we aim to simplify the setup process, so you don’t have to worry about it.
Templates vs. Personalization: While templates can be useful, nothing beats a personalized experience for your guests. We take the time to discuss your area, unique guest benefits, and local attractions, ensuring your digital welcome guide is tailored to your property.
Keeping it Simple: When crafting your digital welcome guide, remember these key goals:
- Be concise: Keep your content short and to the point to engage your guests from start to finish.
- Be crystal clear: Avoid assumptions and stick to simplicity to ensure your message is easily understood.
- Seek feedback: Before finalizing your guide, have a friend review it for valuable insights.
Utilize Shortcodes: Orana provides you with a unique shortcode for electronic messaging, such as emails and SMS, to promote your guide across all guest communications.
Creating a Personalized Welcome: Guests appreciate a warm, personalized welcome message from you. While templates are an option, crafting a message from your heart adds a special touch to the welcome guide.
Traveler’s Checklist: Inform your guests about what amenities you provide, helping them pack efficiently. During our consultation, we’ll ensure this information is clearly conveyed in your digital welcome guide.
