Consider the following statements:
Simply put, for US and European villa owners your market is on-line and increasing according to Ipsos-Reid (the most authoritative report on global web usage) in their annual Face of the Web report. For example, if your villa is in Orlando, Florida ... you may be surprised to know that over 90% of the 40+ million visitors are from the USA (Orlando/Orange County Convention & Visitors Bureau, Inc). The UK is Orlando's top overseas origin country with 1.9 million visitors but your market is essentially USA visitors followed by UK, 74% and 54% respectively on-line each month and happy to search and book for villa accommodation.
Our sites are simply more effective than your competitors, reaching more customers and converting more enquiries to bookings. The presentation and features of our award winning web sites for villa owners are often cited as one of the major reasons why a customer books a villa over the competition.
Many of your fellow villa holiday owners are already aware of the benefits of a web presence to the success of their business but very few of them of them are aware of the extent to which a well meaning but poorly designed web presence is damaging their business. In essence you spend your advertising budget (in magazines and villa sites) funneling potential customers through a screen space which is not even a square foot in size. On the web you only really get one chance to make any impression. When the first impression isn't good you don't get a second chance because the potential guest will never return.
The vast majority of villa web sites are unwittingly badly designed often leading to the customer feeling overwhelmed and not clearly understanding their options ... you will rarely hear from them ... they will just leave the site and turn to places that feel more welcoming. Imagine how disorientating it would be to walk in to a store and not be able to tell immediately what services or goods were available there. The same is true of your web site, it must communicate in one short glance where users are, what your company does and what users can do at your site. If your site misses the mark here it's nearly impossible to recover.
Average sites typically score well below 50% against a usability compliance rate test designed by Neilson "the guru of Web page usability" (The New York Times). In contrast, our web design follows best practice 'web usability guidelines' practiced by the most successful companies in the world scoring over an impressive 90% on the same test. For example our home page design is compliant with hundreds of researched design concepts proven to ensure your site is instantly accessible to your customers. Some simple examples of why our sites are so usable compared to average sites:
These design rules make your web site a truly usable environment that supports user's goals and maximizes your return on advertising spend. In a world of information overload your web site needs to make your customer instantly feel comfortable, communicate the value your villa offers over competitors and offer access to all the important site features. In summary, potential customers will spend time on your site rather than your competitors.
The majority of bookings for villas are for 6 months to a year in advance and can be anything up to two years in advance so we would advise that you set-up your web presence a minimum of six months before you take ownership of the villa, otherwise you will be missing out on potential bookings. We have had many customers who set-up their web site presence in advance of ownership and sell successfully. While you are unlikely to have your own pictures of the villa it is normal to set-up your villa presence using photographs of a show house or similar which you can usually acquire from your builders, selling agent or management company. Why not ask to gain access to the show house to take pictures or ask your local representatives to take them for you. We would simply replace the show room pictures with your own pictures whenever they are available.
Another important reason to set-up your web site in advance of ownership is that the major search engines such as Google and Yahoo can take anything between 2-6 months to pick up on your web sites presence which will improve the traffic to your web site.
