We are pleased to announce that the newest Revinate feature, Social Buzz, is now live. You can see it in action on the Paradise Point web site. (Click the image on the left to see a larger screenshot.)
Revinate’s Social Buzz is a powerful system that makes it easy for you to promote your public feedback from across the Web on your own sites. Why does Social Buzz make sense for hotels? Honest recommendations from guests is now the most significant driver of booking decisions. But feedback from your guests is being posted to review and third party booking engines, so the value of the feedback is benefiting their sites, not your own.
Destination Hotels & Resorts is the first client to go live with the new feature. Isaac Gerstenzang, Corporate Director of E-Commerce, explains his decision to roll out Social Buzz, saying, “When you have visitors on your site, you want to keep them there. The last thing you want is for them to leave your site to read reviews and then get distracted or lured to another property. The beauty of Social Buzz is that we’re able to easily share the most recent reviews right on our own Web sites. Also, the fact that Social Buzz can contain reviews from the 10 major review sites and OTAs, and is authorized by TripAdvisor, lends incredible credibility.”
Social Buzz is a premium feature, so clients must upgrade for activation. If you’re interested in rolling out Social Buzz or want to learn more, please contact your sales rep or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
