Fed up with paying huge commissions to online booking agencies? Then entice customers to book directly with you!
The Office of Fair Trading on 20th December 2013 allowed different pricing within "closed groups" as compared with the prices you offer to online booking agencies. BedPosts Business Club has such a closed group known as BeDS.
Your offer becomes visible to enquirers after they have clicked a link and registered their email address to become a closed group member. Periodically a newsletter is sent out by email to all in the closed group list highlighting the various offers of all participating Club members.
A bonus to participating Club members is that their advertisement, with special offers flash, floats to the top of www.BedPosts.uk/town.
The scheme expects that you will all use this opportunity to notify past guests about your entry into this scheme in the hope that they ask to sign up to BeDS Closed Groups to access BedPosts deals. A standard template email to send to past guests will be provided, should you wish to use it.
