Here at Holiday Velvet we are always looking at ways to increase the distribution of our property portfolio to partners around the world. This strategy also ensures we have less dependency on more traditional styles of on-line marketing, and at the same time offers opportunities for affiliates to earn a share of the commission that Holiday Velvet generates.
We have developed different formats that can be easily incorporated into an affiliate’s website. There are three main solutions that we offer:
Solution 1: Text Links or Banner Image Links
Firstly text links or branded ad links can be added to the affiliate’s website. A customer would click on this link and be diverted to our site where they could make an enquiry or a booking.
Solution 2: Search Box for your website
Secondly we can insert a search box into the affiliate’s website where the customer adds their destination and travel dates and they would be navigated to our web site where the available options would be displayed.
Solution 3: XML integration
Finally we offer the full XML feed integration where the affiliate website can show over 6,000 apartments with live availability and pricing. If the customer decides to book then this stage is handled on our check-out page but with the affiliates logo still showing. One of the other benefits of the XML feed is that the property pages can be offered in eight different languages so the affiliate can tap into markets not previously explored.
We have an experienced team of web developers who can assist with all aspects of the integration, and are happy to answer all questions. As we manage the payment and booking stage of the process we also provide invaluable customer service support to answer all customer queries.
