Now that you've signed up to TrekkSoft, what next? We can now drive bookings to your tour and activities by featuring your tours on our newly designed B2C marketplace TrekkMarket.com. But first, there are some simple steps to take to ensure that consumers will see your tours and activities:
Things to do:
1. Upload a company header image that will show-up on your TrekkMarket Profile. Once you have done this we will be able to create you a company profile page where consumers visiting our marketplace can scan your tour and get all relevant information quickly.
In your Admin panel, go to "Channel Manager" on the left-side navigation. In "Marketplaces" you will be able to upload an image that will be shown at the top of your tour operator page on TrekkMarket.com. It should be 600 px wide and 300 px high.
2. To drive more bookings through our B2C marketplace you are automatically opted in to TrekkMarket. Having your tours listed on TrekkMarket is subject to a higher commission rate of 16% instead of 6. We invest that money into paid advertising to drive traffic to the site. But, if you do not want your tours listed on TrekkMarket you can check the box "hide from marketplace" under booking settings. Go to Settings -> Booking Settings/Reminders -> Hide From Marketplace and make sure the box is ticked.
Last week we announced big updates to our software, here are some other things to watch out for:
Newly-designed and improved marketplace. We've updated our marketplace to be photo-centric and attractive for users. The user experience is far more straight forward and guides users to find & book tours in a simple flow.
Improved search functions. You can now search by city, activity, company. For example now you can enter 'Snorkelling' and our search engine will search thousands of snorkelling tours around the world.
Individual company profile pages. When you search for a city or activity you can see who the provider is, a quick click-through will bring up a profile page of popular tours by that provider and the cities or places they operate in. For example below is a screenshot of 'Bus2alps.com' - you can see the most popular tours run by them and all the tours they provide.
City and region landing pages. Want to go on a tour but don't know much about the city or place it's in? TrekkMarket now has landing pages for cities and places so you can find out more about them and also find out about other activities in the area.
Happy trekking from the TrekkSoft team!
