Get Your Listing Ready for the Launch of the new Hosted Accommodation Australia Consumer and Corporate websites.
The Consumer website has been live online since mid January and already, is generating a lot of new member interest.
Our former website is getting a new look and feel to become the new Corporate website.
We are now ready to officially launch the two sites to the general public, the tourism industry and the media and will do this with the assistance of Tourism Australia.
Is your new 7-page listing ready and displaying information to the best advantage? We have developed a checklist to make it easy. Just log in to access your editing page and if you haven’t worked on your listing since the new consumer site went live you will need to download the guidelines document. This is colour coordinated with sections of the editing page to make editing easy.
o Images – You can now display up to fifteen images in your gallery. These resize in various views. The images you displayed on the old website now need to be removed and reloaded so that they are capable of doing that.
o There are several listings that are not displaying images at all. If this applies to your listing, where we can we will copy images from your own website and advise you to go in and make any necessary changes. It is important that every listing displays at least one quality image.
o Likewise, with your description. If you don’t have one, we will put a brief one in for you.
o Is your tariff correct? Have you entered the dates of the period that it is valid for?
o You will increase your ranking and appeal if you enter activities that guests can enjoy during their stay
o By entering information about local events, your accommodation will be found by anyone googling for information about them
o Put up a selection of guest reviews to give visitors to your listing a sense of the pleasure others have had in staying with you
o By displaying a set special, or putting your own, your listing will be featured in the ‘Hot Deals’ section of the home page.
Editing your listing is simple, especially with the help of the guidelines, but if you experience any problems just ask the Office Staff for assistance by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or phone 1300 664 707.
