FAQ Featured Property Auction

If you wish to participate to the Featured Property Auctions, but you have questions, read the following article and find your answers.

What is the frequency of the auctions and when do they end?

You can enter the auctions on BedandBreakfast.com at any time. They are available 24H per day, 7 days a week, all year long. The advertising space will be given to the highest bidder. If you are outbid, you will receive an email informing you that you're the highest bidder.

How much should I bid to become a Featured Property?

The minimum bid is only a penny per impression (page view). Thus, if no other member has bid on the page that interests you, simply set your bid to $ 0.01 and immediately become Feature Property on your page.

Except a minimum payment / supply of $ 25 in my account, what is the annual fee?

There are none. Besides your subscription to BedandBreakfast.com, the only fees that you must pay is the amount that you bid for printing, or for advertising (s) on which or whom you have placed a bid. If you have placed a bid of $ 0.01 and that page is viewed 100 times, $ 1 will be deducted from the $ 25 in your account; your balance will be $ 24. Please note that payments for advertisements Feature Property are non-refundable. Bonus credits offered by the site expire within one year after the grant date.

How long will my property appear as Featured Property if my bid is winning?

Your inn will appear as Featured Property, until one of the following occurs. Firstly, if another B&B owner outbids by offering a superior offer to yours, you will not be Featured Property. If applicable, you will be notified by e-mail. In addition, you will also lose your Featured Property advert if your account does not have sufficient funds. In this case you will receive a first e-mail informing you that your account balance is equal to or less than $ 10, followed by a second e-mail telling you that your account is exhausted. Finally, you can withdraw your bid at any time.

What will happen when the available balance on my Featured Property account is insufficient?

We will send you an email as soon as the available balance on your account has crossed the minimum threshold set in your preferences. You must then log in and make another payment to your account so that your bids are again taken into account. If you wish, you can also use automatic billing (AutoBilling) your account will be automatically replenished as soon as your balance reaches the minimum amount you set.

How do I measure the effectiveness of my Featured Property?

When you are connected to your Featured Property program, click the "Show Statistics" link and you will reach full history of your bids for each page where you promoted your B&B in the program.

Can I estimate the value of my unique visitors?

You can set the amount of the bid to advertise as Featured Property, calculating your conversion rate. For example: if you pay for 1000 impressions, that it generates a click through rate of 10% or 100 clicks and you gain two bookings for 100 visitors through your home page (ie: conversion rate of 2 %), these 100 visitors you will make gain, at an average of $ 300 per booking (2 nights for $ 150/ night), a profit of $ 600. In this case, the value of each print is $ 0.60. Driving traffic to your site is a good way to "fill" your rooms, as the investment does not exceed your breakeven point of $ 0.60.

How do I know what is the best bid proposed for the page where I want to promote my inn?

Access the Featured Property program. Ongoing auctions / best results are displayed next to the name of each page.

Do I pay every time my ad appears or whenever a user clicks on it?

We charge you every time a new user visits the page that displays your advertising, then counted as an impression. However, the system will not charge you any fees if the same user visits the page several times.

Should I add a link to my Featured property or can I add it to my home page?

Yes, you can add a link to your Featured Property ad if you are a Silver, Gold or Platinum member. When you place your bid, simply tick the box to select the page where you want the link to show.

I would like to add a promotional message for travelers in my Featured Property ad. Is it possible?

Yes, you can add your own promotional message of 50 characters; it will appear under the photos and the location of your property.
