What are the benefits of automated messaging?
Better efficiency and time saving
An automated messaging service like Breezeway, lets property managers communicate with their guests promptly and efficiently. Through automation, you free up valuable time for you and your team to focus on more strategic and personalized interactions.
Some key benefits of an automated text messaging service:
- Removing manual data entry: automatic messaging allows you to integrate with your existing property management system (PMS), to automatically pull booking and contact information.
- Bulk messaging capabilities: You no longer need to send individual messages to each guest. Automated messaging allows you to contact multiple recipients simultaneously based on specific filters like check-in date, location, or amenities provided.
- Templated messages for efficiency: Pre-built message templates for different stages of the guest’s stay. These could be pre-arrival, post-arrival, and check-out reminders. Meaning you no longer need to write repetitive messages while maintaining a personalized touch.
Build relationships and generate repeat bookings through automated messaging
In today’s competitive landscape, providing an outstanding guest experience is crucial for the success of your business. Automated messaging is critical to providing guests with a smooth and memorable stay.
Here’s how Avantio and Breezeway’s integration can help you:
- Proactive communication: Automated messaging allows you to communicate important information to guests before arrival. Keep guests updated on property status, local recommendations, or WiFi instructions. You create a positive impression from the start by proactively addressing their needs.
- Real-time updates: With two-way SMS functionality, you can engage in real-time conversations with guests. Provide them with status updates on maintenance repairs, linen delivery, or custom concierge services.
- Personalization at scale: Leveraging customized tokens, you can tailor messages with guest, location, and stay-type information. This personal touch makes guests feel valued and appreciated, leading to increased guest satisfaction and loyalty.
What strategies are effective for automated messaging?
Define your communication goals
Defining your communication goals before implementing automated messaging is essential. Consider what you want to achieve through automating your messaging service and how it aligns with your business objectives.
Some common goals include:
- Simplifying guest communication to improve operational efficiency
- Improving the guest experience through proactive and personalized messaging
- Increasing revenue by leveraging ‘gap night’ opportunities and extended stays
Segment your audience
Segmenting your audience allows you to deliver more targeted and relevant messages. By grouping guests based on factors like check-in date, stay type, or location, you can tailor your messages to their specific needs.
Segmentation helps you to:
- Send targeted offers and promotions to specific guest segments
- Customize messaging based on the length of the stay or type of property
- Personalize recommendations and local tips based on guest preferences
Craft engaging and compelling automated messages
Crafting engaging and compelling messages is crucial to grab your audience’s attention and drive an action.
Here are some tips to make your automated messages stand out:
- Use a conversational tone: Write your messages in a friendly and approachable manner to create a personalized feel.
- Keep it concise and clear: Be mindful of your message length and avoid overwhelming your guests with lengthy texts.
- Include relevant details: Provide essential information such as reservation details, arrival instructions, and contact information to guarantee a smooth experience.
