Coming to visit the University of Michigan is a regular occurrence and today, for the most part, those visitors are on their own. While your Campus Life section of the site shows Accommodations nearby, the visitor is left to drill down into each one, check prices, figure out where they are in relation to their reason for coming to the campus. All of that takes time. By integrating the TripProximity widget your visitors save time planning the logistics of their trip. And you save time answering “where should I stay?”
Today, you provide static driving directions on the Admissions section of your site for prospective students and their parents. But there is no map or link to where to stay. By adding our Smart Map to your site, visitors can book hotel, flight or get dynamic driving directions to your location as needed. You free your visitors from having to find your address and copying it into a mapping tool to get directions. The widget pre-populates your location information automatically.
There are so many reasons that people visit your university. Whether it is a prospective student and their parents, someone attending a concert, a board member coming in for a meeting, alumni attending a sporting event or people attending graduation, there is an opportunity to make life easier for them as they plan their trip. For the first time, you can help visitors to your race track easily answer the question: “Where should I stay?” With TripProximity, your site becomes a 24-hour concierge that provides an integrated answer: “at a hotel nearby.”
With TripProximity, every trip can make a difference. A percentage of the proceeds from travel bookings made on your site are given to your charity of choice annually. If your university is a 501c3 or has a Foundation that is a non-profit, then we will more than double our normal contribution and change the frequency to quarterly.
Lead your category: be the first to enhance your visitors’ total experience. And be known as the innovator that adds to the bottom line while also supporting your favorite charities.
The TripProximity widget conforms to the HTML container added to your site. Choosing a location near visitors’ decision points creates greater value for you. We have a dynamic widget that can be used to trip-enable every event on your various event calendars. We can also use it to create unique widgets for your various campus locations.
It just takes minutes to configure and install your widget on your site or blog. Contact Chris to discuss the impact TripProximity can add.
