Apr 25, 2019

Social Media

Facebook has become a powerful way to promote small hotels and holiday apartments. So you set up your page and posted all these beautiful photos. Well, don’t stop there. Think about this: If your social media visitors love what you offer, is there an easy way for them to make a booking?

There’s no better way to do this than a Book Now button right there on your page. Check out this simple guide to turn your Facebook page into a direct booking engine in just 3 minutes!

Please note: you will have to be an admin, editor, moderator or advertiser to add a Book Now button to your Facebook Page.

1. Go to your Facebook Page and underneath the cover photo, click Add a Button.

4. A pop-up window will ask you for a URL Link. Depending on the direct booking engine you use, you should have a Link.

For example, Cairns Beach Resort uses BookingButton from SiteMinder. So the link will look something like this (DO NOT COPY, yours will be different):

https://app-apac.thebookingbutton.com/cairns-beach-resort/properties/CAIRNSBRDIRECT
