Getting Started With Localbird
Looking to boost your guests’ experience throughout their stay? To take it to the next level, here are some tips and tricks we recommend to maximize the services Localbird offers and give your guests everything they need to have the best time possible.
Step 1: Create and Customize Your Landing Page
The first thing to do upon signing up is begin building and customizing your landing page for guests. With Localbird, creating a landing page is like creating a branded guidebook designed to book local trips and experiences in the area to book, as well as give them any piece of information they make need, such as house rules, contact information, and WIFI password. Our landing pages are highly customizable, so you can display whatever experiences you think you’re guests would enjoy.

Step 2: Share Your Landing Page With Your Guests
Now that you’ve created your landing page, it’s time to make sure your guests see it. Here’s how we recommend distributing your Landing Page:
1. Send It After They Book Their Stay With You
It’s common practice in the vacation rental industry to send a ‘thank you’ after a booking. Not only does it reassure your soon-to-be guests that you received their booking, but also gives them their first taste of the quality service you will be providing them. That make this the perfect time to introduce your guests to your Localbird landing page. 50% of all American travelers book their vacation lodging before they book any activities, and usually spend the 3 months leading up to the trip researching thing to do. Why not make those months much easier for them by sharing all the wonderful Localbird experiences available via Localbird?
2. Send It When They Check In
Did you know that more than one in every three travelers use their mobile devices to book an experience while already at their vacation destination? Yep, that’s right. That means that even after your guests have checked into your Airbnb or vacation rental, they are still planning their trip for the next couple days. What better a time to introduce them to your landing page that’s full of recommended local experiences? We can’t think of anytime better.
3. QR Codes
Another quick and easy way to improve your guests’ stay. Over 70% of hotels are now providing guests with QR Codes for everything from booking reservations to room service. Considering the fact that most people today own a smartphone and that over 82% of vacation bookings are done on online, either via mobile apps or websites, a QR Code is a great way to elevate guest experience and get your landing page in their hands.
Step 2: Invite Your Vendors To Join
Our brand is all about bringing local and reliable experiences to guests. If you know a know a vendor that Localbird hasn’t partnered with yet, you can invite them to sign up for Localbird as well, and then begin promoting them to your guests as well. Share experiences of people you trust, and help them get more business.
Step 3: Local Guides and Blogs
Our goal of enhancing guest experience doesn’t end with local experiences. Members of our content team are regularly publishing Localbird Tips: blogs & articles about the various locations we operate within as well as travel tips and recommendations for each one. Adding some of these blogs to your landing page can definitely make your guests’ stay easier. Also, we love taking recommendations from Partners for future Tips, so if theirs’s a topic you think we should write about, or desire a specific article for your landing page, feel free to get in touch with us!
There are a lot of different strategies and tactics to utilize your landing page and get it into your guests’ hands. We hope these recommendations of some help, and don’t hesitate to reach out to us if you have any questions whatsoever! Thank you again for partnering with Localbird 🙂
