Free Facebook booking app

Sometimes your Facebook page can outperform your own website in search results. It is also where you can communicate with your followers in real time. So why not turn it into another channel for direct commission-free bookings. For free.

First, you need a Facebook fan page

Businesses are presented on Facebook by fan pages, not profiles. Once you have yours, you can initiate various ad campaigns, interact with and engage your guests by sharing attractive content and, last but not least, install your booking engine.

You also need a Facebook page tab app

It lets you add custom tabs to your Facebook page. These tabs may contain various applications, like your web reservation system. There is a great variety of tab managing apps online. Just pick one and install it (or ask your administrator to do so).

Then add your web booking engine...

Yes, just grab the URL from your WRS settings section in Clock PMS and set it as a tab target URL. Name the tab appropriately, e.g. "Book now", and reorder tabs to make it more visible, if needed. As a result your Facebook page visitors will see a clickable call to action that will open your own web reservation system within Facebook.

...and you're good to go!

The Facebook booking system offers the full functionality of the web reservation system on your website. It's multilingual, offers the same intuitive booking process and secure payment options, only that it runs directly on your Facebook fan page. No further settings or arrangements needed, no commissions, no extra charges.

One more integration method

If you don't want to use a Facebook page tab app, you can just use the built in Facebook functionality to add a call to action button to your cover image. However, If you choose this option, the web reservation system will open in a new browser tab.
Of course, you can use both options.
