Best practices: Three routes to a winning webpage January 29, 2013 Share 1 -- For most travel retailers, the website is a critical tool to attract potential clients, get them intrigued and, ultimately, get them to book.Here, Travel Weekly presents a series of fast-paced and informative e-books on best practices in online travel commerce: Routes to creating a great page, setting up a helpful search process and keeping clients focused throughout the booking process.The first installment is "Three Routes to a Winning Homepage." To access the e-book, click here or on the image at the right. The e-books were created by Maxymiser, a global firm specializing in website testing, personalization and multichannel optimization, as part of an ongoing effort to educate various business fields about how testing and optimizing elements of a site can ultimately increase sales and return on investment. We'll publish Maxymiser's three travel-related books over the next month. The e-books take examples from several large travel suppliers in different segments. But whether you're a supplier or a travel agent, a big player or a small one, in an office or at home, we hope you can use the information in these e-books to inspire your site and increase your ROI. Next up is "Four Routes to a Winning Search Experience," and the concluding e-book focuses on tips on refining the so-called "booking funnel." On March 6, Maxymiser and Travel Weekly will host a webinar to talk about best practices in online travel, hosted by Travel Weekly Senior Editor Kate Rice and Maxymiser Vice President of Client Services Jared Polidoro.
