Seattle, WA (PRWEB) March 12, 2015
Online booking provider, PlaceFull.com, announced the launch of their new website to tighten their focus on activity, event, and service businesses. The Seattle-based startup is focused on helping small businesses keep their place-full by appealing to their customers.Calling first is being replaced by online booking. The imagery and design of PlaceFull’s online capabilities make the booking process unlike other platforms in the market today. The layer of convenience becomes obvious when a booking occurs late at night.
In fact, over 33% of bookings powered by PlaceFull occur after normal business hours.
Similar to OpenTable, PlaceFull makes it easy for small businesses to create, publish, and promote their availabilities on their website and Facebook page. Hundreds of businesses across the United States are benefiting - from pottery studios to bowling alleys to laser tag places to photographers. On average, businesses can expect a 30% growth in revenue after the first few months after adoption, according to Ryan Hamlin, CEO.
Two weeks ago, PlaceFull announced a partnership with Microsoft Bing to help small businesses get booked in search results. Similar to the new “Order now” button in Bing search results, the new “Book it” button will direct consumers to the merchant’s custom booking page, powered by PlaceFull - speeding up the booking process. Additionally, new feature announcements like a shopping cart, retention reports, and an image-based booking calendar have given the company some momentum.
According to Ryan Hamlin, CEO of PlaceFull.com, “The website change better messages the value of our product. We know small to medium businesses want to use technology to add efficiency and grow their revenues. That being said, we also understand the fear and hesitation that comes with change. For this reason, we offer a free trial, focus on simplicity, provide a dedicated account manager, and aim to keep our platform affordable.”
PlaceFull.com is an online booking service that allows activity, event, and service business owners to create and publish bookable listings online, delivering ultimate convenience for both merchants and consumers.
