1. What is Affiliate Marketing?
Affiliate marketing is an online sales tactic. It allows you to increase your sales and reach by allowing other people called "affiliates" (influencers or bloggers) to market your experience. By recommending your experience to a third party, they earn a commission.
2. Why using Affiliate Marketing?
Did you know that more than 60% of travelers browse the web looking for inspiration before booking their trip? When deciding where to go and what activities to do, they search for recommendations on travel blogs, websites, Facebook and Instagram profiles. bookingkit allows you to take advantage of this trend by collaborating with bloggers and influencers with a strong online presence that will recommend you on their website and promote your experiences. They will help you to drastically increase your online presence and the number of customers who book your activities.
3. How does it work?
bookingkit selected an exclusive number of influencers with thousands of followers on their travel blogs, Instagram and Facebook profiles. They are so-called publishers because they promote your experience to their audience of travelers with articles, images or by linking your website to their blog. Similar to other marketing channels like GYG or TripAdvisor, they earn a commission only when they send you a new customer who buys your activity. The entire booking process is tracked by bookingkit.
4. Why working with influencers?
Influencers have a close relationship with their followers by writing articles and sharing information that is very valuable for them. Travelers looking at their website have a high chance to follow their recommendations and buy the tours and experience they recommend, Our affiliate marketing module will give you direct connection to this selected group of influencers and to their growing audience of travelers.
5. How do I activate the module?
To activate the module, all you have to do is switching to the "Marketing" category in your bookingkit account and click on "Platforms". After that, you will see the module "Affiliate Marketing Network". Then click on "Activate". Best of all: From now on, we'll take over. Your experience will now be distributed to a platform of over 5,000 influencers. Have fun!
That’s how you activate the module:
6. How will they promote your experience?
Publishers use social media platforms such as Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, YouTube and write articles about specific cities they visited or the activities they experienced during their journey. They will mention you in their articles or use banners with appealing pictures (provided by bookingkit) to encourage their followers to book your activity.
