20 Oct How to increase your Gift Voucher Sales…
Many Hotel, Restaurant and Spa operators already appreciate the lucrative revenue line that Gift Voucher sales provide, with many quality hospitality establishments netting anywhere between £100k to £2 million in gift voucher sales every year.
Selling monetary and experience gift vouchers has become a firm no brainer in the hotel, restaurant and spa arena. With an average 30% of gift vouchers never redeemed (therefore revenue going straight to your bottom line) and a near zero cost of sales attached to them, which other revenue lines produce such profitable results?
However, we’re constantly surprised by the many hospitality businesses that already sell vouchers…why? Because they don’t sell their gift vouchers online, through their website.
Many hotels, restaurants and spas are still forcing their cash in hand, ready and willing, loyal customers and friends of guests to either visit their property or make a lengthy phone call in order to buy gift vouchers.
Even if that desperate shopper ever made it to the front desk, taking into consideration 1) the busy time of year, 2) our dear pre-occupied front of house staff, and 3) the infinitely ringing phone, it may well be that said shopper is then welcomed by a substantial wait in line until check-ins and seating guests has been completed. Our vision is a cost effective, efficient and friendly alternative!
