Introducing Message variants

Product: Message Porter - Date: Wednesday 23rd January

One of the great things about our self-service Message Builder is that hoteliers can create many different kinds of messages to display to guests. You can experiment with everything from images and colours to headline text and button actions - you can even upload your own custom designs.

But with all that choice available, it can be hard to know which design - or which direct booking offer - works best for converting your customers. That’s why we’ve added variant testing to the platform, which will allow you to run two versions of one message at the same time and track which one performs best for your business.

This means you’ll be able test and prove all kinds of theories about what will increase conversions on your website. Should you offer a free breakfast or a free shuttle trip? Does a 15% discount drive significantly more direct bookings than 10%? You can now easily create two versions of the same message, with half your visitors being shown the original (variant A) and half seeing the modified message (variant B). Triptease will then track how each website visitor interacts with the message they are shown and you can monitor the effect your changes had on customer behaviour.
