  • Why VBrochure Mobile   At Hopkins Bay Belize, we decided to go with VBrochure mobile because we believe that in today’s growing technological world, more people are on the move and using their mobiles far more often than ever. After setting up our V-Scape Media Manager we decided to try to fit ourselves in / make use of every possible angle that was offered by VFML. As a growing company in a slow moving Belizean economy we realized that we need to keep up with the newest trends and staying as far ahead of the competition as possible. We know that the visitors to our resort come mainly from a highly technological world of smart phones and tablets and instant gratification and the only way for us to access this audience or spark and keep their interests while we have it is to have this information directly at their fingertips. We realize that if our site does not look good on a smart phone, users will simply move on to another website that is optimized for mobile device.
  • Benefits of the product for you specifically -Images are downloaded faster allowing for less waiting and more browsing -Even though we have not utilized the booking app as yet, the ease of setup was a major deciding factor for us and we are already getting a lot of referrals We already stand out as a hotel and it has put HBB in a better position than many competitors as OTA’s are one of our biggest producers and since VFML works with many/most of them, and also that these sites are also mobile optimized, it gives us an advantage . - Sales or specials are easy to customize and quite simple to promote using the mobile app.
  • How did you implement?  How do you use/promote it? It was quite simple to implement. As soon as we uploaded images in the V-Scape Media Manager and added caption it was just a matter of optimizing the different sections such as Facebook and mobile and Smart phone / tablet sections, customizing my tabs and with simple clicks, just insert the images we wanted in the different tabs
  • Results Since the implementation of the mobile website, from June 1 st to present ,10% of all our referrals since June 1 st , 2013 , came through VFML . Of the 10%,  82% were through IOS Products ad 17.3 % through Android for a total of over 99%.
