Monetize your Wi-Fi by capturing valuable guest social data, increasing guest engagement, direct re-bookings and positive online reviews. Grow your email list, social media following and online presence with STRWiFi, a Social Powered Guest Wi-Fi Marketing Machine.
You know Wi-Fi is such an important part of the amenities you offer your vacationing guests. You also know what a pain Wi-Fi can be at times! Guests calling for passwords… having trouble connecting, poor coverage area, and low Wi-Fi speeds are just a few of the complaints reported by guests. “Bad Wi-Fi”, contributes to an alarmingly large amount of poor online reviews as well. Your Wi-Fi may be costing you more than just network fees. It’s time to put your Wi-Fi to better use, with Vacation Rental “Social Powered” Guest Wi-Fi.
What is STRWiFi?
Unlike traditional Wi-Fi, which requires users to locate the network name and type in a complicated password, Short Term Rental WiFi (STRWiFi) is a Social Powered Wi-Fi Marketing Machine that makes it simple for guests to quickly and easily connect through a “Social Login Portal”. Guests are presented with a professional looking login page with your branding and direct contact details. This innovative solution allows guests to connect to the Wi-Fi network using Facebook account, Facebook Messenger, Twitter, LinkedIn, Instagram, Email or a Phone Number.
What are the benefits of Social Powered Wi-Fi?
STRWiFi not only provides your guests with an easy way to connect to Wi-Fi, but also provides a way for you to instantly connect with your guests. When your guests connect using their social media login, their data is collected and stored for immediate and future engagement. The data collected provides you with a wealth of information about your guests… information not typically shared by OTA’s (online travel agencies). Imagine for a second, being able to communicate (maybe for the first time ever) with ALL of YOUR guests. PLUS, it allows your guests the ability to connect with you directly instead of having to communicate through a travel agent.
How Will Social Powered Wi-Fi grow your STR business?
The power is in the list! Social Powered Wi-Fi is the key to growing your contact list, increasing “direct” re-bookings through guest engagement, special offers and much more. Automated messaging will help grow positive online reviews, improve your online presence and capture new audiences while creating a “following”. Staying connected with people who already have an interest in your product will boost sales and create customer retention that could last a lifetime. Even if you already have the contact details of the booker, you are still missing opportunities to connect with the other guests in the rental party. STRWiFi now makes it possible to connect DIRECTLY with each guest staying at the property.
Connect Your Guests & Connect With Your Guests.
Connecting Your Guest
Step 1: Guest Social Wi-Fi Login Page
STRWiFi provides a custom QR Code so guests can quickly and easily connect without the hassle of searching for the network name. Once guests connect, your branded login page (splash page) displays a user interface where guests can log in with an email address, phone number or social media account. It’s professional, timely and impressive.
Connecting With Your Guest
Step 2: Getting To Know Your Guest
Online travel agencies (OTA’s) refuse to provide you with YOUR guests contact details. This is all about growing your database and engaging with your guests! Once your guests have completed their login, they will land on a friendly thank you page and can even be redirected to your Facebook page, a welcome URL, or a video to learn more about you, your property or local venues.

Step 3: Increase Bookings and Online Reviews
Two of the most important aspects of your rental business: more bookings and more reviews. Increasing the quality of the bookings and increasing 5-star reviews are even more important. Because your new STRWiFi Machine is collecting the contact details for EVERY guest in the rental party, you increase the number of guests being automatically prompted to leave reviews AND to book DIRECTLY with you in the future. There is not a faster or an easier way to increase online reviews, than with Social Powered Wi-Fi!
