Napa, CA (PRWEB) December 19, 2013
VinoVisit.com today announced that it has re-launched its consumer-facing website and winery dashboard and rolled out a new pricing model for partner wineries. No set-up fees, monthly or annual fees nor even reservation fees will be charged. VinoVisit will be completely free for wineries. Wineries will now be able to accept online appointments, tasting reservations and manage tasting room operations, at no charge. VinoVisit is still free for consumers to use.
A new management dashboard has also been released, with 63 new features including integration with Outlook and other calendars, and support for one-time events, recurring tastings, and by-appointment scheduling.
According to VinoVisit CEO Dan Lintz, “The new website is a significant evolution over the last site. Responsive-design that’s mobile friendly, a graphical interface, and easy-to-skim and search functionality will delight wine lovers planning their wine country getaways. Winery-owners will appreciate the highly-search-optimized content and access to significant online traffic.”
Bob Iannetta, EVP Sales says,” Our winery partners will appreciate the modifications and upgrades we’ve made to the dashboard—many of our upgrades are based on our client wineries’ recommendations. Even more compelling, VinoVisit is now free for wineries. We have removed every possible barrier to leveraging online appointments and reservations while capturing email addresses and contact information.”
Moving from a revenue model based on client winery reservation fees and set-up fees, to an affiliate-based revenue model opens up new opportunities and partnerships with travel sites and a wide variety of other sites, further increasing the consumer traffic and sending more visitors to winery tasting rooms.
Joining VinoVisit has been made even easier for wineries with the release of a “Self-Sign-Up” wizard, created to walk a user through the process of building a winery profile, adding tastings, tours and special events, and generating the snippet of code for the winery’s own website reservation widget.
