Top 3 StayFi features

WiFi marketing with upsell storefronts

One of the standout features of StayFi is its WiFi marketing tools. “The journey begins with branded splash pages that capture the information of every guest staying at the property, not just the booker,” our StayFi rep explains. These customized login pages are designed to engage guests and promote a property’s unique offerings.

“While that information is logged into the StayFi CRM, guests are brought to a landing page that includes links to upsell storefronts and essential guest information.” Further, “Commissionable storefronts are offered for free via The Host Co. and Viator to offer local amenities and experiences while other links provide easy access to essential resources like your guidebook or direct booking site.” Through these splash pages, short-term rental managers can upsell various services and amenities, such as late check-outs, spa treatments, or local activities, directly to their guests.
