Something we hear time and time again is that a hospitality business has a website, but it doesn’t generate any bookings. The reasons why could be complex; and the time involved in managing your website or the expense of hiring web professionals to do it for you can quickly mount up. Advertising on the big booking websites will help get you seen and generate bookings. But if you want to get more direct bookings, we can help. At ACT Studios we deliver a fully supported website solution – uniquely tailored to each property. We understand and appreciate that Google likes websites produced by humans, for humans, liked by humans. Our website service for hospitality owners provides a modern, secure, mobile-friendly platform that acts as the hub for your online presence. From elegant country homes to glass-fronted beach houses, we combine all the elements needed to create the perfect website for your holiday accommodation
We use modern web design tools to customise your website so that it mirrors the look and feel of your property. This applies to bars and restaurants, artisan bakeries and distilleries, hotels, universities, gyms veterinary practices and more. In fact any property-focused business that offers a customer experience.
Your website can either use an existing domain name or we can acquire one for you – as near to what you would like. You will have full access to the website admin area so you can update your content whenever you want.
It’s important that your website makes it quick and easy for guests to book online.
At ACT Studios we work with industry-leading property management software and eCommerce providers, and we can advise on the best solution for you. We base this on the type of business you run along with other factors. Eg for hospitality accommodation, we analyse your business model, payment provider, channels that you list on and more to recommend the options available to you. We add the availability calendar and integrate the booking pages to your website, providing a seamless booking process for your guests and customers.
If you already have your own booking system set up, we simply integrate it into your website (pending some essential checks for compatibility).
Around 50% of internet traffic to websites around the world is delivered via mobile devices. It is vital that your website is fully optimised for mobile so that guests and customers who want to book on the go can do just that. So we make certain that our websites work just as well on mobile devices and tablets as they do on desktop and laptop screens.
It’s important that your website can be found by people searching for relevant phrases in search engines. As part of the design and development process, we look at the content and code of your website and arrange it so that you have the best possible chance to rank highly for your “target terms”. Additionally, your website is designed to convert visitors into bookings as efficiently as possible – using eye-catching call-to-actions and dynamic design features to draw in your visitors’ attention.
We feel that just having a website isn’t enough – you need to see that your website is working for you and your property as time goes on. With this in mind, we constantly look for ways to improve your website, be it new functionality that streamlines the booking process, advanced analytical tools that positively impact your marketing efforts, or new design features to engage your visitors. We also see ACT Studios as a constant learning process, and as we see various new features work on one property, we will look to suggest it and roll it out across as many sites on our network as possible.
Your website will be hosted 24/7 on a secure and modern hosting environment, with a team of engineers available to handle any issues that might arise. Your website address will be allocated a SSL certificate (HTTPS) that guarantees any and all data submitted by guests is fully encrypted until it reaches its intended destination. We also maintain regular security checks on our network of sites to monitor any suspicious activity and act accordingly if we deem it to be a threat.
One of the most timely tasks in having a website, is keeping it up-to-date for both security and functionality reasons. With ACT Studios, all that work is taken out of your hands as we continually work to ensure all our websites have all the latest updates applied to them.
While our websites offer a wide variety of possibilities in terms of design and functionality, we know there may be times when a requested function falls outside of the generally broad terms of our website service. We are always happy to investigate and provide estimates for custom solutions.
