HotelVideoReviews.com: Encourage More Bookings by Adding User-Generated Hotel Videos
Largest Hotel Video Review Portal Now Open For Partners
"We believe that video reviews are very important for the booking experience on a travel website," says Mr. Jan Kooman, CEO of HotelVideoReviews.com. "Research shows that 78% of hotel bookers already use textual reviews when making travel-related decisions. However 42% find video to be the most trustworthy. Adding video content on a hotel booking webpage increases conversions up to 200%. They are essential to staying competitive in online travel."
Mr. Marc Duijndam, partner at Greenhouse Innovation and former Country Manager at Google, recently joined HotelVideoReviews.com as an investing partner. "The second key point is that we provide our partnering Travel Agencies with qualified leads from our traffic network," says Marc. "Our launching traffic network partner is WhereIveBeen.com, one of the largest Facebook applications in travel. WhereIveBeen shows our aggregated hotel video reviews on their destination pages. The booking links belonging to the video reviews link back to our partnering Travel Agencies. The profits are shared."
HotelVideoReviews is building Online Travel partnerships and distribution/traffic partnerships. Among the launching partners are WhereIveBeen.com, EasyToBook.com, Gekko.com, TUI, and Hotels.nl.
HotelVideoReviews.com is a user-generated hotel video review site. User-generated reviews help sales at travel sites. HotelVideoReviews.com licenses their software to Online Travel Agencies for free. In return, HotelVideoReviews.com has the right to present the aggregated videos on their own consumer-facing review site. The company also incorporates video reviews from companies who use other third-party party providers or have an in-house video review system.
HotelVideoReviews.com CEO Jan Kooman will be speaking at phocuswright@itb, taking place March 12, during the ITB Conference.
