What our new mobile app means for your property
We recently redesigned our mobile app for all major platforms and mobile web. That’s not just exciting for us and useful for travelers. It also means good things for you! Here are five reasons why:
1. It’s easier to support your neighborhood (and help yourself).
Now mobile users can add a hotel, restaurant or attraction not yet listed on TripAdvisor. How does that help you? The more delicious or fun things that show up near you on TripAdvisor, the more exciting your immediate area looks to travelers. And that can mean more potential guests for you. It’s additional appeal by association. You can even add some nearby points of interest yourself to get things started.
2. You have a new way to engage and delight your guests.
With our app’s ability to reveal and suggest nearby activities, it’s like adding a mobile concierge that supplements your own personal knowledge. So suggest the TripAdvisor mobile app to guests when they arrive or ask a question about the neighborhood. Like a local map you provide during check-in, the TripAdvisor app is another useful tool for guests to make the most of their stay. Plus, the more travelers who add and review nearby restaurants and attractions, the better your property looks (see above).
3. Now there’s a speedier way to sing your praises.
A more refined interface and new features means it’s even easier and faster for travelers to write reviews. So when they’re impressed by a great room, delicious food or memorable service, they can let everyone know on the spot.
4. You can turn your hotel into a video star.
They say the camera adds 10 pounds (or 4.5 kilos), so it’s good to bulk up your listing page with videos of your property. Travelers browsing TripAdvisor love watching videos, so it’s great news that our redesigned app makes it easy for people to view and share videos of a hotel room, restaurant or attraction. So make sure your listing page is up to date and your property looks its best!
5. Get even more impact with Mobile Upgrade.
Our already popular mobile app is even better now, so you can bet on even more travelers using it to plan trips and discover on the go. And if you’re a hotel and want to grab attention with a special offer, you’ll want Mobile Upgrade for your Business Listings subscription!
