Huge Advantage of using MyAllocator with Instant World Booking

Want to gain a huge advantage in channel management? Learn how IWB makes MyAllocator better.

IWB has partnered with MyAllocator for years, offering one of the best solutions for channel management and property management. Because of our unique partnership, there are benefits only available to properties that become users of MyAllocator from the IWB interface. In fact, these benefits are unique to IWB users.

Will you have access to the full MyAllocator interface? Yes. And best of all, there’s no additional cost. You just add IWB as your property management system in the MyAllocator system.

Major Benefits of using MyAllocator with IWB:

1) Sign up for MyAllocator from the IWB interface, and get a free trial.
2) IWB will automatically create and configure your rooms on MyAllocator.
3) Use the IWB Calendar for free. Many users agree that our Calendar interface is the most intuitive and advanced for managing your availability. It’s free, and similar features are available only at a cost from other providers.
4) Instant World Booking is the only service connected to MyAllocator which offers both a booking site (distribution) and a property management system.
5) IWB gives you access to the full MyAllocator interface. It’s all available on the IWB interface, and there’s no need to log into 2 systems simultaneously.
6) All your reservations from all channels will appear on one integrated booking list. This is the same efficient reservation tool you’re already accustomed to on the IWB interface.
7) IWB uses an advanced queueing method to send updates to your channels via MyAllocator. IWB is the only provider that works this way. So why is this critically important? If you use MyAllocator alone (without IWB), updates are sent immediately and only once to your channels. But, what happens if the update fails, or a particular channel can’t accept updates at that time? You may not know that it failed. This happens frequently, and is an unpleasant reality with channel management systems. You waste a lot of time returning to your computer to repeat the procedure manually, only to watch it fail again? IWB eliminates this problem for you. If a channel rejects an update, IWB will resend the update until it is accepted.
8) No more confusing error codes. IWB analyzes channel errors from MyAllocator. We notify you when a channel failure requires your attention. If you use MyAllocator alone (without IWB) you may receive error codes when you try to update a channel. You have to research the error yourself, or contact support. IWB eliminates the guesswork. We communicate the exactly problem to you, and which rooms are effected.
9) Click to synchronize any room type. If you have a problem with external channels or an individual room, IWB allows you to resynchronize one or all rooms with one click. MyAllocator does not offer this functionality. In fact, a bigger problem is that full refresh on MyAllocator may fail occasionally with some channels. Our method will automatically reconnect in the background until all channels have accepted the update.
10) You get perfect integration between your website’s Booking Engine and all your channels. Use IWB’s Booking Engine on your website, and never worry about synchronizing your calendar with external booking sites. Our Booking Engine is an advanced solution that provides a superior customer experience.
11) If you’re looking for a more advanced property management solution, you can try IWBFrontDesk 2, So, you have 2 options for a property management system, and it’s perfectly integrated with MyAllocator and IWB.

To get started, please log into your profile at the IWB interface. Proceed to the page entitled Channel Manager.  If you are not already a member, sign up here:  Add Property

If you are already a member of MyAllocator, please go to the MyAllocator interface. On the menu, select Property Management System Connections. Follow the instructions to select IWB.

How to use LinkedIn to Promote your Hotel, Hostel, or B&B

LinkedIn is excellent for professionals to promote their businesses. But what about hotels, hostels, and bed & breakfasts?  Many don’t know is how effective it can be for both marketing and SEO.

The key to LinkedIn successful marketing is to set up a complete user profile.  There are many sections within LinkedIn that enable you to enter targeted keywords and promote yourself as not only an accommodation manager, but also as an expert in the tourism field.

Concentrate on these main areas:

Name and Headline – Show your full name. You may be able to establish yourself as an expert in the accommodation industry.  So, use your full name to increase searchability.  Headlines should include your name and accommodation name.

Summary – Summarize your experience and specialties. Include specialties of your property.  Market your accommodation along with your personal expertise.  Including targeted keywords in the Specialties section increases the searchability of your profile.

Experience – Import your resume if possible to fill out this many of the sections within your profile. This not only makes completing your profile easier, but also enables you to review the final result for more accuracy.  Make best use of any opportunities to include keywords or language promoting both you as an expert, and your accommodation’s best features and services.

Skills & Expertise – LinkedIn allows 50 separate skills and expertise phrases.  Take advantage of this to enter keywords or phrases to enhance SEO.

Groups – Join LinkedIn’s groups, which allows you to interact with others in your tourism and accommodation profession.  But, also take advantage of the opportunity to create your own group.   This will enhance your own credibility, and the notability of your hotel, hostel, or bed & breakfast. Groups are one of the main items that come up when people search the site.

Definitely maximize the visibility of your web presence by including your Website link and your connections. Instead of just showing the link to your website, LinkedIn allows you to place keywords as anchor text to your site.  So, don’t show just http:///www.myhotel.com, show your anchor text as “My Hotel”.

Connections won’t help directly with SEO, but they are absolutely important in helping you with ill definitely help you with online marketing.  People sometimes forget that LinkedIn is not just a business site, but is still one of the most visible social media sites.  Get your profile to work for you by connecting with others in tourism and travel.  Form alliances with complementary businesses, like transportation companies that can provide benefits to your customers.  Grow your connections by including people from past jobs and work experiences.

Follow these examples, and you can very quickly establish yourself as a tourism industry expert on LinkedIn.  This will also be a very effective tool for both SEO and your overall marketing effort.

Youth Travel is Increasing

According to a study by STAY WYSE, the association for youth travel accommodation, Youth Travel is trending upward.  Globally it was found that the revenue per available bed (RevPAB) was almost €24 in 2011, a growth of almost 5% compared with 2010.

The survey of nearly 2,200 YTA establishments worldwide has become particularly important, because it is the only global indicator of the state of the YTA sector, and because it seeks to provide concrete business metrics that allow operators to benchmark their own performance against global and regional standards.
