How to sell more Hunting and Fishing Trips: A manual for hosts

You have a great destination, in a great location, but still struggle to get bookings?


 

Use these simple, but extremely important, fixes that take minutes to implement. Eagle Review now hosts over 6,700 Hunting and Fishing destinations worldwide with more being added every day, so it is essential to have your listing looking its best.
 

1. Improve your Search ranking.

The higher your listing appears in the search results, the bigger chance you have to get clicks, inquiries and bookings. To make this happen, follow the Eagle Review ranking factors:

  1. Quality of your Reviews. More 4 and 5 star rankings help you rise to the top.

  2. Number and Recency of your Reviews. These give browsers the most up-to-date information.

  3. 100% Content of your page. Eagle Review rewards content, so the more information your listing contains, the higher it will rank.


 

2. Include video’s.

If you think about it, the effectiveness of video is not even that surprising. After all, vision is our most dominant sense.

  1. Video Engages Even the Laziest people. Adding a video on your landing page can increase conversions by 80%.

  2. Google Loves Videos. Videos allow you to increase the time spent by visitors on your site. Thus, longer exposure builds trust and signals search engines that your site has good content.

  3. Video Appeals to Mobile Users. Since people like to watch videos on the go, and the number of smartphone users is growing, your video audience keeps getting bigger and bigger.

Use Eagle Review’s very talented film maker Andrea Cavaglia to get a video made.



 

3. Include great photo’s.

They are the first thing people see and it allows them to decide whether to investigate further into your listing.

Select an engaging primary photo to help you make a strong first impression with potential visitors.

Update this image frequently so your listing stays fresh and continues to engage viewers over time.  

Note: “Premium” Hosts can also set up the new and engrossing, visually gorgeous Eagle Story Board.


 

4. Have a clear, detailed and accurate description.

After photos, people will read your description. Be as specific as possible. People want clear, detailed and accurate information that matches your beautiful photos. The experience of staying at your Place should be more unique than staying somewhere else, so your description should be about these unique and special features.


 

5. Collect Guest Feedback.

Reviews and ratings continue to be an important part of your Eagle Review listing. They now also influence new site features, like your Search ranking. The more reviews your business has, the more content there is for guns and rods to consider before they finalize their plans. The more recent those reviews, the fresher and more relevant the content is to potential customers. Tools like or “Collect Reviews” can help make collecting reviews easier and help you encourage travelers to write reviews.


 

6. Respond to reviews.

We strongly recommend that business owners monitor their reviews and respond to select ones by writing management responses. If you receive a negative review, a management response demonstrates that you take customer service seriously and gives you an opportunity to explain how you have remedied any problems.

A management response to a positive review shows that you’re paying attention and appreciate customer feedback. Regularly replying to reviews can differentiate your business and give you a competitive edge.


 

7. Ask for recommendations.

Collecting recommendations is a quick and effective way of increasing your credibility and visibility. Recommending a Host takes only a quick click from a guest.


 

8. Market your listing through multiple channels.

This will increase your chances to be noticed. Share your Eagle review page via your social media to draw attention to your listing. If you have something newsworthy, ask us to consider it for Eagle Review News: one of the most popular outdoor news services in the world. Apply to become a Top selection Listing. You will have even more coverage because you are listed in a selective group. You will also be named in emails, and the search engines will like you even more.


 

9. Respond promptly to any enquiries.

The faster a guest is able to book the better. Research has found that replying within 10 minutes to a message surprises the guest and increases their liking towards you as well.

Even if you don’t have something to say to your guest, write a quick “Thank you for your interest, I will come back to you with more info ASAP” within less than an hour of the original message.
