Meet Benjamin from Lake Tahoe, California. Despite owning an incredibly beautiful property with competitive metrics in most areas, one roadblock was significantly hindering his booking rates.

PSSSST! If you are more of a video person, you can watch Jeff’s analysis (4.3 min) below.

Benjamin’s Struggle

Despite garnering high impressions and superior click rates than his competitors, Benjamin’s conversion rate was a mere 0.07%, significantly below his competitors’ 0.3%. This disparity suggested that although guests were drawn to his property, they were reluctant to finalize their bookings.

Our Discovery

Upon delving into the metrics and analyzing the customer behavior, IntelliHost identified an anomaly. Benjamin was charging an additional guest fee that significantly increased the price for larger groups.

We recommended Benjamin remove these additional guest fees, assuring that even a slight decrease in the click rate would be outweighed by a drastic increase in conversion rates.

Benjamin’s Results

Post the change, Benjamin’s property metrics experienced a complete turnaround. His first page impression rate rose from 55% to a whopping 68%, and the click rate doubled from 25% to 49%. The conversion rate saw a significant boost, tripling from 0.07% to 0.22%.

Ultimately, Benjamin’s property became more appealing and accessible to potential guests, significantly increasing the number of bookings he received.
