Planning for the holidays? Don’t forget your Special Offer!

It’s the most wonderful time of the year – now is the time to let your potential guests know why they should book a stay at your property this holiday season! As a Business Listings subscriber, your direct contact information is posted on all of TripAdvisor’s 30 domains. But you can do even more to help increase traffic to your property page by posting a Special Offer. Your Special Offer will be displayed in high visibility placements on our sites, including your geo page and search results within TripAdvisor, as well as a special map view.

Room discounts tend to be the most popular Special Offers, but here are some other seasonable and creative Special Offers that we like :

Ready to create your Special Offer? It’s quick and easy, and you can choose from four customized options: Room Rate, Food & Beverage, Local Offers, and Packages. Once your offer is submitted, it will be live within 24 hours.

To get started, visit your TripAdvisor Management Center.

Share your TripAdvisor reviews on Facebook

With almost a billion users from around the world, Facebook is a great place to showcase your TripAdvisor reviews and awards, and spread the word about your property far and wide. Adding a TripAdvisor widget to your Facebook business page makes it easy for prospective and loyal guests to read your property’s reviews. The same TripAdvisor widget that goes on your website can also be used on your businesses’ Facebook page.

Since Facebook launched Timeline for business pages, the process for adding a widget has changed a little. We have created a new step-by-step guide on how to share your TripAdvisor reviews with your Facebook fans that factors in timeline-related changes.
