Leave a comment

In appreciation of our small business merchants, we will be waiving transaction fees on Saturday, November 29th (a credit will be issued on bookings made that day). We support small businesses and want to help you get more bookings night and day.

Make sure your listings are up-to-date: descriptions, availabilities, pricing, and eye-catching images. If you have a unique idea, create a listing for it, and promote it on Facebook! Lastly, incentivize customers by adding promo codes to your listings.

3 Ways to Get More Exposure

1. Bing Ads

Bing is offering all new and existing advertisers a $100 Bing ads coupon and a free toolkit to jumpstart your search advertising campaign. Setting up a campaign is almost identical to Google Adwords. If you have used either, the toolkit clearly explains how to get started and how to be successful. The offer expires December 31, 2014. Also, while you’re redeeming your coupon, make sure you claim your free business listing on Bing Places. This listing will drive more traffic throughout the year to your website for local searches.
