Questions about Boostly Websites

In a word, Yes.

Actually, we are so confident that I’ve even guaranteed it. Read On and see my guarantee below.

Ok, just for a moment imagine you are booking your OWN holiday.

You have found 2 places, both with great reviews on the fence on where to choose. One has a modern, beautifully designed and optimised website, with images showcasing the property with all it has to offer. And the other doesn’t…

Be honest with yourself…Which one would you book?

Please, I am not judging your current website. Because the chances are I haven’t seen it yet.

However, if You feel it’s maybe not up to scratch compared to the competition in your area and could be improved then it would be worth your while contacting me on

No problem, please contact Mark at and we can sort it out for you

Nothing at all. You stay in full control of your domain. 

Give us access to where your domain is stored and we will do the rest for no additional cost.

We are not a booking engine.

We connect your property to our most trusted Booking engine providers so your guest gets the smoothest possible experience when they book at stay with you.

Your guest can easily email you directly for availability and questions so you have all the benefits of your own booking engine without the stress.

In the long term, we recommend you get an online booking engine for your hospitality business. However, for the short term, we can easily change it so people can email you directly for availability and questions.

At Boostly we combined this into one monthly fee to take the hassle out and so you don’t have to spend hundreds on additional pieces of software or plugins to keep it as cost-effective for you as possible

– Tutorial video updates to keep you making the most out of your investment.

Here at Boostly, we don’t want you to feel ‘locked-in’.

You can cancel your monthly admin fee at any time if you feel like we should part ways.

Just so we’re on the same page though…

You will be responsible to move the domain to your new hosting (and pay any fees to do so.) and your access to the website will be restricted within 28 days of your request to cancel.

Questions about Boostly Academy

Boostly Academy is the ONLY Hospitality Training Portal in the world that has been created BY hospitality professionals FOR hospitality professionals.  

It’s been put together with the sole purpose of getting ‘heads on beds’, taking control back from greedy, commission stealing OTAs and 3rd party booking sites and giving our members 100% control of their own business without having to depend on others for occupancy rates.

I’ll level with you. You’ll get so much more out of Boostly Academy than just 3 things. However , as you’ve put me on the spot I have to say: 

  • Increased direct bookings and dramatically reduce your commission costs
  • More money in your personal bank account
  • Becoming a Marketing Master for your own property and beyond.

Ok, I’m sorry, I have to add one more.

  • Being part of the Exclusive Boostly Academy community who’ll guide and support each other 24/7 so you’ll reach the top.

Yes and No.

Of course, you can learn anything from the Internet, however, without guidance and support the chances of getting anything out of it is extremely slim.

Instead, you’ll probably find yourself just wasting hours, months and years trying to find anything which will specifically help for our industry.

😂 Touché

Don’t worry, I don’t offend easily.

Believe me, I walked in your shoes. My family has had their own property for close to 30 years so I’m not exaggerating when I say hospitality is in my blood.

And including the years I spent working in the marketing field for the top review sites in the world where I’ve had the inside track on the secret workings of this wonderful, but very tough, industry.

I believe I know what I’m talking about. (That’s not arrogance, just years of hard work)

Everything I’ve learned and have shared in Boostly Academy and has been applied to both my family’s business and hundreds of others with amazing success.

I know from running my own property time is precious. With that in mind our step by step videos can be picked up whenever you have a spare 15 minutes.

Most of our members commit around 2 hours a week at the start. I’m telling you now, if you really break down your routine you’ll be able to find 120 minutes. Especially when it could be the difference between your business being a success or failure.

Don’t panic. Neither had 95% of our current members. Boostly Academy was designed exactly with non-marketeers in mind.

The real question is can you afford not to market your property?

Alcohol, takeouts, and even a Netflix subscription at this moment in time, are in fact, luxuries.

Although you’ll miss them, (and believe me there are times I had to cut back too,) in reality they’re not going to get guests walking through your doors.

However, marketing your business isn’t a luxury. It’s a necessity. Without taking control now you are not giving your business the best chance to succeed.

Once you have the marketing down pat, your bank balance will more than be able to cope with any of the extras luxuries you want, and then some.

At this point, you just need to decide what’s more important…


Again, Boostly Academy is designed for self confessed Technophobes, who are any age.

Listen, if you can operate a smartphone or a washing machine you’ll have no problem at all.  

And remember you have full support to both myself and the Boostly Community to guide you through.

I do. I’m so confident in Boostly Academy and what I can do for your business there is 100% money back guarantee when you join.

Here’s how it works.

If you sign up today, and over the next 12 months complete the training at the Boostly Academy and have not seen improvements in your direct bookings, cutting of your costs and bottom line and the Academy hasn’t paid for itself then I’ll gladly send you back ALL the money.

This makes us risk free.  

If fact, the only risk is not signing up and your business staying exactly the way it is, or worse.

Of course, there is always a chance the unthinkable could happen which would cause me to stop.  

The same as in any other business.  

However, this is my family’s livelihood and I’m not going anywhere.  

Boostly Academy will be around for years to come and if my past members are anything to go by, you’ll gain so much knowledge and results in the coming months, even if I was to disappear in 20 years you wouldn’t even bat an eyelid. (Well, I hope you would anyway)


The short answer is Yes, it will.  

(But not for those who sign up for £951 Lifetime Access, 4 easy payment of £250 or the £99 spread out over 12 payments)

The reason?  

The current investment of Boostly Academy compared to the financial returns you can expect is extremely low. At some point in 2019 I’ll have to increase my cost to move more inline with the market.  

So, I suggest becoming a member sooner rather than later is your best option by far.


Yes, of course – If you still have any questions please send my an email at and I’ll get back to you.

I’m glad you asked.  

I have a easy test to find out if you are right for joining us and all you have to do is answer 5 simple questions:

  • Are you sick and tired of OTAs and 3rd Party Websites ‘stealing’ your hard earned profits through crazy commission costs every month?
  • Do you want more direct bookings and repeat guests?
  • Do you want to increase you review site rankings and your property to stand out in your area? 
  • Do you want to have a proven marketing plan in place and 100% control of your business success in 2019?
  • Would you love all of the above?

And now for the results…  

If you answered YES to any of the above question (especially number 5) then you are exactly the hospitality owner we are looking for at Boostly Academy. Those who want to take control and build a successful business.

If you have read this far and are STILL not convinced about joining and would like to get on the phone with me to discuss, then fill in this form


P.P.S I want to reward you for reading all the way to the bottom of this article. I’m a massive fan of action takers, so if you click right here it will give you £200 off coupon to join the Boostly Academy now. Hurry though, as this coupon is only valid for 72 hours..

Questions about Book Direct Membership

It’s the ONLY booking platform with both short stay accommodation owners and guests in mind.

Guests select the location they want to go on the easy to navigate the map. Then they can see all the properties clearly in that area where they can Book Direct.

By clicking on the properties icon, they’ll be able to see a full description of the property and any incentives they’ll receive from Booking Direct.

The result…

Guests are happy with the little extras they’ve received…

You are happy as you haven’t paid out ANY commission fee’s on the booking to 3rd Party Sites or OTA’s…

And all this for less than one decent bottle of wine from the local supermarket a month.

The details we need to get you started are…

– Your Property Name – Your Property Address – Your Property Website (Optional) – A Description Of Your Property

Absolutely Not!

The Book Direct Map exists to make commissions are a thing of the past. 

The only fee £9.99 per property per month, which means any bookings that come from The Book Direct Map (no matter how many) means you’ll receive the WHOLE amount.

So what if you have more than one property? 

No problem. Each one will count as a separate subscription, so why not start off with one location now and add more at another time.

I’m glad you asked…That’s a big YES

After you’ve signed up today, you will have access to exclusive ‘step by step’ training videos on how to increase your direct bookings for your property, using proven methods which already brought in Hundreds of Thousands in revenue for our members already.  

And help stopped them being held hostage from 3rd party sites and OTAs just to stay afloat.  

All for the price of a trip to Starbucks…

Truth is, in an ideal world we encourage everyone to have a website and an online booking engine.  

That being said, when you sign up for The Book Direct Map it’s not essential.

So, if not having a website is the only thing stopping you. Don’t let it!

That’s another thing that makes The Book Direct Map extra special. 

Not only will your property be in front of people who are actively looking to Book Direct…As soon as you join, you’ll get exclusive access to training videos on how to increase your Direct Bookings so you can start to kiss “3rd party commissions” goodbye.

Yes! I give you a 100% money-back guarantee if you haven’t had a return on an investment after 12 months. HOWEVER, you’re going to have to do some work. You will need to commit to using social media content and implementing my training videos into your business.

I’m going to teach you how to be more proactive, which in times like these with the Corona Virus affecting us all, you need to realise that if you don’t switch from that reactive mindset to a proactive one, your business won’t be here in 12 months.

That’s easy. The BIG differences are…

– The Book Direct Map is RUN by Hospitality Owners…FOR Hospitality Owners.

– The Book Direct Map has short stay accommodation owners as a priority (And the guests of course).

– The Book Direct Map gives you access to world-class training to help skyrocket your Direct Bookings.

– The Book Direct Map is by far the most cost-effective solution out there for receiving your bookings online.

And the best bit…  

You’ll be part of the #BookDirect movement which is completely changing the way people book their next getaway.

Well, last but not least you’ll be part of the #BookDirect Reward Program.

This means you’ll be given your own unique tracking code so we can reward you for simply spreading the word.

Anyone who wants to Book Direct!

At this stage, we’re letting the of world hospitality know about it first so the #BookDirect movement grows. 

In time though, we aim to be the #1 booking platform out there for the public too.

This way they can take advantage of the great savings, amazing customer service and all the little extras they’ll get with Booking Direct.

It’s as simple as Clicking The Big Button Below and filling in a short Google form.

So let’s get started!

No, this is a separate Boostly Product. However, Boostly Academy members do get a 5% discount to join. Please check our exclusive to find out more.

The same goes for Boostly Website clients, this is a separate product.

"I suggest everyone find him and follow his guidelines"

Mark Simpson has been wonderful to work with on several levels. How some guy from the UK can be so full of information and then be so willing to share and help other innkeepers and business folks is behind me!
Thanks Mark, you are not getting rid of me for a long time. I suggest everyone find him and follow his guidelines.

"This pushed me out of my comfort zone"

Mark’s training for hospitality owners is brilliant. I recently joined the Boostly Academy and completed a 5 day facebook giveaway challenge with them.This pushed me out of my comfort zone, kept me motivated and taking actions and increased my facebook followers. Learning from Mark and fellow Academy members is invaluable to me a small business owner.

"Mark Simpson, will be my one-stop training partner in the journey"

Boostly is a fantastic way to learn a wide range of online marketing techniques both through own-pace learning modules and the group exercises. The recent social media challenge was excellent with step by step clear directions and the camaraderie of hundreds of people involved with mutual support and encouragement. So much more to learn in my hospitality field and Boostly, led by Mark Simpson, will be my one-stop training partner in the journey
