How AI is Contributing to the Hotel Industry and Delivering an Awesome User Experience for All

Posted by Mark Kenneth B. Herrero on Sep 13, 2018 8:30:00 AM

The prospect of AI ruling over humanity isn't a new one. However, with today's artificial intelligence technology becoming more and more... intelligent and widespread; could it be time to start worrying?


What is Artificial Intelligence?

AI gives a machine the ability to imitate intelligent human behavior. The concept of AI is based on the idea of building a machine capable of thinking, acting, and learning like humans.

With enough input (like historical data and user data), advanced hardware, and software systems combined, AI is a force to be reckoned with. From virtual home assistants (Apple's HomePod, Google Home and Amazon's Echo) that can adjust the lights on command, to healthcare systems that can potentially give a more accurate diagnoses than a human counterpart, AI can be utilized in many different industries and is continually growing throughout the years.

3 Best Online Reservation Systems to Boost Restaurant Revenue

Posted by Mark Kenneth B. Herrero on Aug 9, 2018 8:30:00 AM

If your restaurant accepts reservations and has a website or any form of online presence, then you need to have at least one online reservation system in place!

Why, you ask? One reason is simply because they're just worth it for all the benefits they can bring to the table.

If a website is essentially a free round-the-clock sales person for your business, then an online reservation system is the host/hostess version of that. They will save your staff time by essentially taking a task off of everyone's workload. Someone wants to walks in your restaurant for a reservation? Your staff themselves can use the online system in place. Easy. And with most people going online to find places to eat, it's actually a must to have these channels in place.

Even your brand perception can get a boost. A restaurant with no website or online reservation system can easily give a "behind the times" vibe.

Single-Page vs. Multi-Page Websites: Who Wins in SEO?

Posted by Mark Kenneth B. Herrero on Aug 2, 2018 8:30:00 AM

When it comes to deciding whether your next website should be a single-page or a multi-page one, there can be a lot of subtle and not-so-subtle factors to consider. One of, if not the biggest not-so-subtle factor is, you guessed it: SEO. Below we'll be covering what the differences are between these two and how they can ultimately make or break your website as a whole.

What Exactly Is A Single-Page And A Multi-Page Website?

If you are unfamiliar with this trend (you shouldn't be!), here are some examples of single-page websites to get you started. Essentially, they are websites with all of their information dumped into a single page; the homepage. Sure, they may have one or two extra pages, but the idea is that everything you need to know is on one page. A sort of "quick and easy" version of your standard website.

10 of the Best Ways to Increase Website Traffic

Posted by Mark Kenneth B. Herrero on Jul 10, 2018 8:30:00 AM

Having an awesome website is like paying once for an employee that never stops working. An employee that can act as the face of your business, provide information without needing to talk to a human and even generate sales! On the flip side, having a bad website is like paying for an employee that doesn't come in to work at all. Basically a waste of money.

In theory this makes a lot of sense, but not everything can be as simple in the real world! A high-quality website needs one crucial thing to actually show results: traffic! If no one visits  your website, then it can only be as good as a bad one.

11 Helpful Ways How to Improve & Reduce Website Bounce Rate

Posted by Mark Kenneth B. Herrero on May 10, 2018 8:30:00 AM

It's common knowledge that reducing bounce rates for your website is a standard part of the SEO process; and that a high bounce rate for your website is bad.

While this is generally true for a lot of sites, there's actually a lot more to work to it. 

Do I Need to Reduce My Bounce Rate?

First, determine what your website's current bounce rate is. Then, do some research and find out if your bounce rate is a bad sign or not before committing time and money into reducing it.

Maybe your website has a high bounce rate because it's a purely informational site like a blog site which is okay in most cases. Maybe you're focusing too much on bounce rate as a metric for your website's SEO which is not okay. Or perhaps you suspect there is a misconfiguration in your analytics code and you're getting junk data.

Once you know whether your bounce rate is good or not, read on below to find 11 ways to reduce website bounce rate.

10 Most Common SEO Mistakes Businesses Still Make

Posted by Mark Kenneth B. Herrero on Mar 8, 2018 8:30:00 AM

You've probably heard that SEO is easy and simple. Well here's the shocking truth: it isn't. After all, why would businesses pay "experts" big bucks for it if it was easy?

Here's the other truth: it is easy to get started; but to actually reach that page-one rank, you'll have to invest some time in mastering the art and seeing actual results.

Search engine giants like Google also won't hold your hands. Their algorithms are hard to predict and your SEO efforts will be virtually impossible to measure in real-time.

With that said, if you're looking into jumping into SEO or have been fiddling with it for some time now, make sure you're not making these surprisingly common SEO mistakes that businesses still make when it comes to their SEO.

6 Perfectly Good Reasons Why You're Not Getting Website Traffic

Posted by Mark Kenneth B. Herrero on Feb 20, 2018 8:30:00 AM

You just launched a new website and everything seems great! However, no one is visiting and it's starting to feel like a negative investment. What could be the cause, you wonder?

These days, not having a website for your business is lost business. But is it really that simple? One of the most common misconceptions that website owners have is that once their website is up and running, traffic will come in like moths to a flame and revenue will start flowing. This is simply not the case!

A new website on the internet is like a new kid in school. No one trusts him yet. It will take him time to build trust, get friends and eventually blend in.

However, if you think it's been too long since you launched and you're still not getting any traffic, then you may want to start looking into it.

There are many factors that can affect how, or even if, you receive website traffic. These issues can occur throughout the website's life cycle-- from before it was built to after it's been launched.
