Transcript from the Episode

I've been asked the question, Who should I go with? For my digital guidebook? Should I go for Touchstay? Or Hostfully? And here is my honest answer after testing and trial in both and knowing both of the owners and the people who work there for years. My honest answer is I would go for both. The reason why is that they are both fantastic. They both two are the biggest, biggest people in a digital guidebook world. And I'm a massive fan of both of them. My main advice to you is to go and test each one.

Hostfully vs Touchstay

Hostfully, you can start for free. So head over to register an account and use the free tools for the free guidebook, go and test out see how you like it, see or use it, see if you can get used to it. Touchstay has a very very small charge. But again, it's it's a fantastic service, it is a fantastic team helping you.

My final tip

The thing that I want to tell you is that you need to get a digital guidebook in 2021 and beyond, it's going to become one of the most important marketing tools that you can have because instead of having something just lying on your kitchen table when somebody arrives in and sort of never gonna read. You can get them excited about your stay before the booking by sending them a link to the digital guidebook that they can look on their phone or their computer, they can already get to suss out the area your recommendations that cannot be started to book things.

And if you do it right, then you can add in upsells that you can actually start to make more recurring income coming into your business. Digital guidebooks give you that, and they also give you the ability to answer every question that a guest potentially has even before they arrive at your property. If you do a digital guidebook right, then a guest should never have an open-ended question before arriving to your property. And that's the power of a digital guidebook.

So whether you choose Touchstay or Hostfully, my advice to you is to go and get one and get it set up and get it implemented into your business. I recommend both of them. I love both of them. I think they're fantastic people who work there. I know them all really well. And it's like asking who is my favourite child, and I have three of them. So I can't do that and I can't do this. Please take my advice. If you do one thing in 2021 is go and get a digital guidebook.
