3 Ways Site Builder Can Help Your Business

by Taylor Odgers

Killer website design can do amazing things for your business.

It can inspire and educate travelers. It can help you build trust and credibility. And it can be a major revenue source.

But not everyone is a killer web designer.

That’s where Site Builder comes in.

Site Builder is the easiest way to create a professional tourism website.

“Site Builder might be the only chance local travel agents and tour operators have of beating the stock exchange listed dinosaurs.” – Ann Pearse – Consultant at Afrisafaris Group

So how does Site Builder help you slay dinosaurs? (Figuratively speaking of course).

By allowing you to:

  1.  Feel confident using an intuitive drag and drop editor
  2.  Create a seamless shopping experience that will increase your sales
  3. Get more sleep knowing your website is safe and secure

Let’s take a look at each of these in a little more detail.

1: Feel Confident

Confidence and web design are not words that tour operators would group, but with Site Builder, you’ll feel like a digital wiz.

We made it extremely easy for you to add your content.

With an intuitive drag and drop editor, you never have to touch a line of code! Simply follow our guided text to add your copy, images and brand assets. All the formatting naturally snaps into place for a professional and unified look across all your pages. It’s honestly hard to mess this one up.

Of course, if you ever run into a roadblock you have the full attention of Checkfront’s 24/7 support.

Since Site Builder automatically syncs to your booking manager, you can add or change inventory in a snap. No more contractors, no more headaches, no more thrown keyboards.

You’re in control.

2: Sell More

If you build your website on WordPress, you have thousands of themes to choose from.

Options are great, but it can be difficult to find a theme that matches your unique business needs.

With Site Builder, we eliminate the guesswork.

Each Site Builder theme has been created with one purpose in mind— to sell more tours (or rooms, or rentals). While coming up with the design for Site Builder, we took a look at traditional website elements and asked ourselves whether it helped visitors reach that goal, or was simply a distraction. Then we scraped the distractions and streamlined the rest.

We also took a look at the most common booking types of our customers— sub-hourly, hourly, daily, nightly or multi-day— and built themes around them. Everything from the search bar on the home-screen to check out is optimized for sales.

The result is a seamless booking experience that helps visitors to find and purchase exactly what they’re looking for.

Oh, and did I mention that each theme is mobile responsive?

2: Sleep

Okay, so it’s a bit of a stretch to say Site Builder will help you get a better night’s sleep. (If you are looking for maybe that give lavender a shot.)

Back to my point— while I can’t guarantee that Site Builder will reduce the amount of sheep you count at night, I can promise that you won’t be woken up in the middle of the evening due to a website crash.

Your Site Builder theme comes pre-populated with all the boring important technical elements like SSL Security, secure hosting, Global CDN and reliable uptime. We also allow you to create custom domains and link third party analytics. You can trust that your website is powered by Checkfront and we are going to help you protect it.
