The free to join web site called cretedirect.biz, gives them the power to reach out and meet prospective customers all over the world and social media enables even very small companies to find and work with customers who are still spending money to enjoy their holidays.

Cretedirect.biz offers accommodation providers a multi page entry with picture gallery, maps, logos, detailed descriptions, facilities, special offers, last minute deals, full year tariffs, reviews, Local attractions availability checking, online booking and instant confirmation features. Owners can update their information at any time 24/7, and from anywhere - all that's required is a PC with Internet connectivity.

 

“Recognising the changing dynamics of the industry and the way today's generation communicates, along with the growing importance of social networking websites have triggered us to enable owners to have a presence on social networking platforms”, said Dave Ashton, Director, Blackdog Internet. “The application is one of a kind by making accommodation in Crete available to Facebook's 500 million members. We were implementing Facebook connectivity for the website when we thought “Why wait for Facebook members to come to us, let's take Cretedirect to them.” It’s such an incredibly powerful tool for recovery.”

 

The site uses a low commission based pricing model allowing for any kind of property, independent or chain - first class or budget - large or small, to use Facebook to increase exposure, room occupancy and revenue.

 

As an introductory offer Cretedirect is reducing the commission rate for the first 10 property owners to sign up and including the set up of a free multi-tab Facebook Fan Page for their property.

 

The application can be found at http://apps.facebook.com/cretedirect/ and the website at http://www.cretedirect.biz/ .
