In the world of travel and tourism, staying ahead of the curve is essential for success. We at TourDesk understand this well, and we’re constantly striving to provide our affiliates with features that simplify day-to-day operations and marketing materials to boost your sales. In this blog post, we'll dive into two exciting updates: The revamped Activity Box widget and the new Marketing segment, which includes printable business cards!

The Activity Box Widget

TourDesk's Activity Box widget has always been a valuable asset for affiliates, but with the new upcoming release, it just got even better. This update introduces several exciting features that will make it a must-have for our affiliates’ websites.

One of the standout features of the updated Activity Box widget is the ability to customize its appearance. Affiliates now have the freedom to tailor the widget to match their branding and design preferences. Affiliates can choose between different styles, including a smooth look with soft rounded corners, ensuring that the widget seamlessly integrates into their website.

Size is another factor that affiliates can now control. The new Activity Box widget allows users to adjust its dimensions, ensuring that it fits perfectly within the layout of their website. This flexibility guarantees a better visual experience for users, increasing the chances of engagement.

The Game-Changer: Booking Popup

Perhaps the most game-changing feature is the addition of the "Booking Popup." With this feature, affiliates can enable a convenient booking modal within the widget itself. This means that potential customers don't need to navigate away from the affiliate's website to book a tour or activity. It's a win-win situation: affiliates provide a seamless booking experience, and customers can make reservations without leaving the page.
The booking modal is designed to be user-friendly and efficient, ensuring a hassle-free booking process. Customers can view available tours, select their preferred options, and complete the booking—all within the popup. This feature not only streamlines the user experience but also increases conversion rates for affiliates.

Printable Business Cards

This feature allows affiliates to design and print their own business cards directly from TourDesk's Agent platform. The level of customization available is impressive: hotels can choose colors that match their active themes, upload images, and personalize their business cards to reflect their unique brand identity.

What sets these business cards apart is the inclusion of a QR code. This QR code is a direct link to the sales portal, providing a quick and convenient way for potential customers to access tour and activity information. It's a powerful tool for hotels to engage with guests and encourage them to explore the offerings available through TourDesk.

It won't be long before this feature becomes fully functional for affiliates. Keep an eye out for further updates from us regarding when this exciting functionality will be accessible to all.
