We were delighted to receive an email from one of our customers, who had already previously given us a lovely review shortly after her website went live, and surprised us today by sending us a new review - to let people know how she has got on with her new website. Here is what she wrote...
"We have had our WDFA website for about eighteen months and I am still as delighted as ever. During that time I have made a few changes to keep it fresh and adjust information as required. WDFA have always responded rapidly to any questions I have and have been happy to make small changes and help me learn how to do new things. The website has remained lively and relevant.
I now have the Blog facility with links to Twitter and Facebook; this has been really useful and although I don’t yet have hundreds of followers I can see that an increasing number of people are actually reading my Tweets and Blogs. I just think of the activities and aspects of our area that I enjoy and write something on that theme; local events provide interesting material too. Food is also a great subject; if there is not much going on in the area I just write up one of my own recipes, add an image of the dish and publish it.
The latest addition for me is the PoP-Up facility; again WDFA provided me with all the ‘How To’ information in the form of a little video - perfect. The Pop-Up is great for adding a Special Offer to boost occupancy levels if you have a quiet few days or want to sell a package over a holiday period. Also useful if there is a special event in the area or to advise on availability. The beauty of the Pop-Up is that you can turn it on and off and you don’t have to interfere with your actual page content - particularly useful for information that you don’t want as a permanent feature. The Pop-up only consists of a Header, a sentence or two and an image so does not take long to create. We introduced the Pop-Up only six weeks ago and already it has brought us more bookings.
I am now about to learn how to add links and linked documents to my Blog."
Jules in the Cotswolds
It is really heartening to hear that Jules' hard work on her blog is holding her in good stead; and she is getting to grips with it very well, and learning new skills too.
A big thank you to Julie Anne, for providing us with such a lovely review, it really made our day!
For many people who aren't used to using social media it can be a daunting task to get started, but hopefully any readers of this article will take heart that it is worth the effort, and give it a go!
We are particularly happy that Jules has enjoyed success with the Pop up service that we recently added to her website; which as she mentions, can use to tell her site visitors about special offers or late availability, leading to a greater likelihood of converting the visitor into a booking. You can read more about our Pop Up service (available exclusively to our website customers only) here.
