Website builder Weebly announced a new partnership with TravelClick who helps hotels maximize revenue through technology. As competition in the website space heats up, companies are continuing to find creative avenues to push father into specific verticals or niches. Travel and hospitality websites continue to gain popularity and are a requirement for businesses in 2017, especially with mobile becoming such a big part of online travel booking. According to eMarketer.com over 48 million US adults will book trips through a mobile device and that trend is expected to grow by around 10% year over year.
Weebly’s website builder specializes in not only building clean websites but also has full responsive websites that work across devices. Mobile responsive websites scale to the screen size they’re being viewed on and eliminates the need for having 2 different websites, one for desktop users and the other for mobile devices like tablets and cell phones. Weebly also showcases various other features important to travel websites including online booking and video.
Here are a few highlights of the new offering between Weebly and TravelClick:
● Intuitive content management system (CMS) with innovative drag-and-drop website builder for hoteliers to easily manage and update websites without the need for development and coding skills
● Unique set of apps designed specifically for the hospitality industry, such as live lead rates and a booking mask, to create even more options for hoteliers
● Ability to create and manage an unlimited number of custom pages to support hoteliers’ marketing campaigns
● E-commerce, SEO, video capabilities, integrated email marketing and blogging solution on a highly flexible, scalable platform for hoteliers
