The Philippines is rich in tourist spots and historical sites. There’s more to the country than the busy streets of Manila. Places like Boracay, Cebu, and Bohol can also introduce the country’s culture and tradition to newcomers. However, these tourist destinations are all scattered around the Philippines’  7,641 islands, so it’s a challenge for the country’s hospitality industry to catch the attention of locals and foreigners. 

Good thing 21st-century technology can provide an accessible platform for all sectors. Rakuboss.ph, a Filipino skill marketplace, can help hotels, tourist guides, transportation services, and other fields within the service industry sell their services online. How? Here are some of the perks you can get by posting sidelines at Rakuboss:

Market Broadening
Businesses within the bounds of the service industry—particularly hotels—can broaden their market through Rakuboss. Since the platform is online 24/7, tourists across the world can search for accommodations and other services near beaches or tourist attractions. If you have a posted listing or sideline at Rakuboss, we can help you reach potential clients based on the description you provided us. 

For Solo And Group Travelers
Fliers are just as effective as posters and billboards when targeting potential clients, but there’s no denying that digital marketing collateral can go over and beyond your usual target market. At Rakuboss, we can help businesses from the service and hospitality industry reach solo and group travelers from the Philippines and beyond. Millennials and Gen Z often rely on the Internet to give them the service they’re looking for—and this service includes accommodations and other offerings from hotels. 

Extra Services
Speaking of reaching different audiences, Rakuboss can also help part-timers and local businesses sell extra services on our platform. If you run a hotel but also offer extra services like massages, tour packages, or tour guides, you can post multiple sidelines at Rakuboss. We’ll endorse you to locals and tourists who might want to purchase your services.

Online Reviews
Rakuboss can help you gather the necessary reviews needed to promote your business’ credibility. We have an online feature that allows users to leave reviews after every successful transaction. These reviews can help you broaden your market further and acquire new customers. In fact, according to a study conducted by website conversion rate Invespcro, “90% of consumers read online reviews before visiting a business. And 88% of consumers trust online reviews as much as personal recommendations…Customers are likely to spend 31% more on a business with “excellent” reviews, [while] 72% say that positive reviews make them trust a local business more.” So, for each sideline or service you post, we encourage customers to leave ratings and reviews for you.

Ultimately, Rakuboss can help you go digital. And by going digital, you can help locals and tourists find a place to stay, food to eat, and service to enjoy. Follow our guide to post your sidelines and enjoy the previously mentioned perks.
