Small hotels who hope to compete with larger chains may want to consider taking advantage of the new app developed by buuteeq. I was really excited to learn that it allows potential visitors to check out images of rooms and maps from the hotel’s Facebook page. The best part about this new app is that it’s free – which will appeal to owners of small hotels, inns, and bed and breakfasts, who need to be conscious of costs at all times.
Not only will a prospective visitor be able to check out the amenities offered by these independent lodging providers, but also they will be able to make reservations directly through Facebook. I have to applaud this application’s developers for creating one that takes advantage of the fact that Internet users want to gather information and make decisions quickly. Making it as simple as possible for travelers to find, choose and book a room without having to click away to a different site will help to increase reservations for properties of all types.
I hope that small business owners will embrace this new technology and find that the business playing field is made a bit more level because of apps such as this one. Promoting one’s business through Facebook is an effective way to attract new customers and this mobile app is a great place to start taking advantage of this reality.
