Adventure Office Social Media Integration

You really can't get away from the impacts that social media has on our everyday lives. The younger groups that you are now marketing to have never known a time without the internet and social media. They have grown up with it and are most comfortable with the technology. This generation is constantly connected and this is their primary mode of communication. The growth of social media has skyrocketed over the past 5 years and social media will account for 2.5 billion users by 2018*. If you are not currently using social media to promote your business, you should start thinking about how to use it to increase the visibility of your business and to possibly increase the number of bookings.

Adventure Office has worked to integrate and test our online booking technology with Facebook. If you are promoting your business on Facebook, you can also allow guests to book your activities as well. This is a perfect way to reach out to folks and consolidate your marketing promotions and strategies. Incredibly, 5 out of 6 Millennials will choose to connect with companies on social media**; if this is a market you are going after, you may be interested getting this set up.
