The challenge of conversion: what can you do to improve your website direct performance?

The conversion rate of a hotel's website is determined by several factors that it is important to consider to be able to optimize it. The stakes are high: 1 conversion point earned equals several points of additional margin. Identify the traffic sources that convert best and those that need to be forgotten. And find out how your pricing strategy impacts your conversion rate and how it can help you lower your acquisition costs.

Shoot for the Average, Miss the Target - Discover the Many Paths to a Hotel Booking

The Holy Grail of travel marketing is knowing why, when, and how travellers plan, search, and book their travel. For a decade now, the travel industry has been seeking to unlock the average ‘traveller path to purchase’ and turn advertising into science that guarantees bookings. However, Sojern’s recent research shows there is no average traveller path to purchase. Instead, our latest work demonstrates that any single path to purchase is exponentially more complex than we suspected. It’s time to give up the quest for a single path to purchase for all travellers and learn how to speak to each traveller, individually. If you aim for the average traveller, you're likely to miss your target.
