NEW SMARTER ONLINE BOOKING – FROM PLACEFULL

SMARTFULL™

NEW SMARTER ONLINE BOOKING – FROM PLACEFULL

A new all-in-one solution with online booking, marketing, and data analytics.

SmartFull™ was created to make it easy for you to know the latest status of your business, send email communications to your customers, promote your listings on your Facebook page, and so much more.

PlaceFull was started two years ago to help you get more online bookings night and day. We help your business take advantage of the web and how almost everyone does business online today. How often do you call a business these days to make a reservation, find out if they have certain products, or book activities and events? Your customers are the same. They want to search and book online with your business. It’s less and less common for them to pick up the phone and call your business to book events and activities. We are helping to make it easy for your business to have all the online capabilities you need without all the complexity or cost.

We are working to help grow your online business by:

  1. Making you more money with less resources, not more
  2. Getting your customers to come back — everyone knows it is much easier to get repeat business than new business
  3. Consistently communicating with your customers and prospects to keep them engaged and interested

PlaceFull’s new SmartFull™ technology offers a customized solution for your business for online booking management and promotions to increase revenue with existing and new clients. SmartFull™ was created to make it easy to know the online health of your business, send email communications, promote your listings, and develop repeat and referral business.

Today, Online Scheduling Providers only provide half the solution merchants need to grow their online business. PlaceFull is the only company that combines both online scheduling and booking along with online marketing and promotions. Merchants today have to buy and implement several different solutions in order to get the basic functionality that PlaceFull with SmartFull™ provides. Even better, PlaceFull integrates it all in one offer; you get one seamless experience, one dashboard, one login, and best of all, one complete online booking and promoting solution.

The offering includes three primary capabilities:

  1. A snapshot of your online health that tells you what you need to do to improve to make more money.

  1. Custom Alerts to help you automate the management of bookings and improve online booking performance. They can:
  • Show you the best listings
  • Remind you of the need for new listings
  • Suggest social media postings for listings
  • Suggest email promotions

Manage alerts graphic 2

  1. Integrated emails to promote listings and stay in touch with customers who have booked with the business in the past. You can automatically send to customers based on a specific listing. Your customer emails are already stored in PlaceFull. There is no need to pay for other email solutions.

SmartFull™ helps you make more money by:

  • Automating processes for managing and promoting your business online
  • Developing greater exposure for your business through online sales and marketing strategies to stay in touch with customers to repeat their activity and event experience
  • Targeting the best customers with the least expense using an integrated email platform
  • Competing more effectively and get the bookings you deserve
  • Creating meaningful events to get repeat business from existing customers and acquire new customers
  • Tracking results to ensure resources are being allocated to the best activity and event performers for repeat and new business

 

80% of consumers expect 24×7 access to businesses online. They want to schedule and pay without waiting — instant gratification. They want to go from looking to booking.

Businesses want personal relationships with their prospects and customers. Letting people book online can increase personal interaction. When a customer books online, it’s like raising a hand for attention. Good businesses know that they make the most money from their best customers. When a customer purchases online they can be sold to again, used for referrals, and bring more business.

Only PlaceFull with SmartFull™ offers a complete solution to meet and exceed your customer expectations to book with you online, come back for more, and let all of their friends have amazing experiences with you.
