Booking.com are a lot more than just a booking engine, they have a huge marketing team who spend thousands upon thousands of pounds promoting hotels all over the world including yours at no extra cost to you!
They run "Google Ads" & "Google Hotel Ads" which ensure people land on your booking.com hotel page when people search for your property.
On top of this, they are on the "Google Adsense" network which means banner & text ads of your hotel will appear now and then to users around the world who are searching for or are on a website related to your hotel.
Finally, they appear on comparison websites like Trivago which again bring in all the traffic to your hotel.
All this is done by the booking.com marketing team if you were to ask any other company to give you this kind of exposure the cost would be unbelievable and would need a large team to manage it.
That is why we partnered with Booking.com to be able to use their booking engine links on the websites we build for you.
Simply continue to put your best rates into the familiar booking.com control panel and your newly created website will help you sell those rooms!
We actually build and publish your 1-page website on our shouthotels.com domain, your website link will look something like this: https://www.shouthotels.com/hotel-richard-paris/
If you already have a domain name and would prefer for our page to be displayed on that domain i.e examplehotel.com then we can send you an IP to point your domain to so that we can make that happen OR if you provide us with your domain name login details we can do that for you, whatever is most hassle-free for you.
When a visitor makes a booking from your website via booking.com, we receive a small percentage of "Booking.com's commission", this does NOT charge you anything extra as we are simply getting a small cut from booking.com's commission they take from you already.
We are based in Scotland, United Kingdom.
We operate from the support from the small commissions we receive as partners of booking.com. We couldn't possibly provide our services for free without it.
As booking.com is the #1 source of bookings online, it is a good idea to use them so why not signup and try us... after all our services are free so you have nothing to lose!
We highly recommend if you already have a domain to use it! We would simply ask you to update your domain name A-Name IP address to point to our IP Address. It's that simple!
If you are unsure how to do this then you can simply provide us with your domain login details and we can do it for you, we want to make the whole process as hassle-free as possible.
We like to keep it to a minimum of 3 email addresses HOWEVER if you require any more we can accommodate your requests with no worries! Just mention this to us when you signup.
No, our motto is about making the whole website process and experience as simple as possible, so if you just send us whatever changes you want to make via email then we will do this for you!
Currently, Shout Hotels operates at a reduced and unpredictable time schedule due to this being run by 1 person, as we scale and build our team we be able to operate during normal business hours. Rest assured we will do everything as quickly as we can!
