4 Reasons Why It's Time to Move Your Venue Online

Updated: Aug 10

Living in the digital age, it's never been more important to bring businesses online. Whether you're looking to book a flight, a restaurant, or a B&B, you're now able to search, find, and book what you're looking for within minutes.

We believe the same thing is applied to the world of sports facilities. Gone are the days of calling or emailing a venue to inquire about booking a sports facility – it's too time consuming and inefficient. Living in the digital age, it's never been more important to bring businesses online. Whether you're looking to book a flight, a restaurant, or a B&B, you're now able to search, find, and book what you're looking for within minutes.

Here's a few reasons why your venue should move to online booking for your sports facilities:

  1. You'll make money while you sleep. Without accepting bookings online, you're limited to accepting inquiries only through phone calls and emails during business hours. When you use online booking, your facilities are able to be booked 24/7.

  2. You can offer promo codes. Everybody loves a bargain! Drum up extra interest in your venue by offering special promotions and offers that can be applied at checkout through your online booking system.

  3. You can automate cancellations. There's nothing more frustrating than dealing with last minute cancellations or no shows and losing out on revenue. With an online sports booking system, your customers can cancel themselves according to your cancellation policy. Your management team can also manually cancel bookings or create a facility closure (due to weather, for example) that will automatically cancel impacted bookings.

  4. You can digitally market your venues. When your venue doesn't have online booking, it's difficult to market your sports facilities to the public. With an online booking system, your facilities have a custom online booking page that can easily be shared through social media. You can also add a "Book Now" button to your website to bring people to your venue's booking page.
