OLA or ÜBER will soon launch in your locality with transparent pricing, easy to book functionalities, trustworthiness and with better service. Be prepared and avoid that your business will suffer. Rather than resisting the change, be ready for and part of the change with your own website with online bookings.
No hassle, no haggle: TRUST is the key differentiator. By presenting your business online, you can present yourself as a trustworthy and reliable taxi company. You set yourself apart from the ones who use aggressive sales techniques – for instance at the airport – scaring customers away and setting a bad reputation for the entire taxi industry. People are now looking for their needs online and if you are not part of this, then you lose out on business.
Easy advance reservations or bookings, in just one tap.
Create customer preference – present the condition of your vehicles with nice photos. Making your service personal with a photo of yourself, and showing the service area (all India permit or Goa only).
Price transparancy – no haggle, no hassle. Show what your rates are for airport pick up and other key destinations.
Online pre-bookings of rental vehicles (cars, scooters, motorcycles) – easy and secure with clear prices and terms & conditions, insurance policy, helmets for two wheelers.
Pre-bookings are essential – sell most of your retreats and YTTCs in advance rather than waiting for students to randomly show up and walk in.
Seasonal schedule overview.
No commission to Yoga Alliance or any other agents.
Easier and faster payments – maximise your reservations, better planning and reduce no-shows. Charge prices in foreign currency.
Attract the right practitioners – beautiful shanti photos and descriptions of your yoga shala, styles of yoga, info on programs (retreats, Yoga Teacher Training Courses, private sessions, drop-in classes, detox programs, healing sessions and more).
Share experiences of past customers (testimonials) – more credibility & up your appeal.
Price flexibility – different packages with different prices, it’s all under your own control.
Extras – special services like ayurvedic & sattvik food, massage & purification (pancha karma etc).
Easy to connect – yoga literally means connection/union, so what can be more important than to allow your customers to connect with you through one-click social links and contact information?
The above list of examples is far from complete. Does your business not fit in any of the above? Of course your business can also benefit from a website. Do you make, repair, create or design something? Do you want to let the world now about your products and services? Expand your reach, connect with new customers and keep existing ones.
