Rentalo.com Targets Mobile Users in 2011

Friday, December 31st, 2010

According to industry trends, mobile internet usage is excelling faster than desktop PCs. USA Today reported that 16% of shoppers will use their smart phones to do holiday shopping this year, and 39% of people ages 18 to 29 reported using their phones to do all of their online shopping.  These are clear indications that smart phones and other mobile devices are changing the way the world is surfing the net, shop, and do business.

In 2011, mobile marketing will expand far beyond mobile messaging, now with 300K Apple’s applications available in iTunes and 200K in the Google’s Android market.   Rentalo.com’s marketing goal for 2111 is to continue expanding its reach by investing in mobile technologies, focusing in the development of new user friendly applications to facilitate comparison shopping for lodging.

“Mobile gadgets provide easy access to the Internet. Similarly, Rentalo.com provides easy access to compare lodging options” says Alfredo Purrinos, “Rentalo’s strategy to penetrate the mobile industry is part of our commitment to the travel industry in making the vacation planning experience as pleasant as possible, to as many people as possible.”

Make Vacation Dreams Come True … Create Your SPECIAL OFFER Today!

Monday, December 20th, 2010

2010 has been a tough year for many people in the US and abroad!   For some who may be dreaming of a family vacation, renting the movie Cast Away may be the closest they “think” they can get this year to spending time in the warm Caribbean sun or a favorite ski resort.  At Rentalo we are working hard to change that and give as many travelers as possible the opportunity to live their vacation dream!

Rentalo is giving a special incentive to inventory clients for adding SPECIAL OFFERS on their listings.

SPECIAL OFFERS are a complimentary feature that allow owners to proactively post discounts consisting of 10% or greater.  These SPECIAL OFFERS are automatically posted in several travel sites and travel blogs, and even social networking sites such as Twitter and Facebook.

As a special incentive, for every traveler that registers a booking through a SPECIAL OFFER via Rentalo during the month of January 2011,  Rentalo is giving each owner one (1) free month of advertising added to their subscription.  Also, the top 3 listings that get the most bookings registered will be featured in one of our upcoming Traveler’s Newsletters sent monthly to 1.3 Million opted-in travelers, worldwide.

Activating a SPECIAL OFFER is free and easy, the only catch is the SPECIAL OFFER must be truly special — which means that you must offer at least 10% off the published rates for those dates.  To learn how to activate your SPECIAL OFFER today, click here to watch a step by step tutorial.

You must hurry and activate your SPECIAL OFFER today to be ready for our upcoming January 2011 Traveler’s Newsletter publication.  In this publication we will be promoting SPECIAL OFFERS to 1.3 Million opted-in travelers, worldwide.  Also, as soon as a SPECIAL OFFER becomes active, Rentalo will automatically post it in several travel sites and also in Rentalo’s index page for SPECIAL OFFERS at http://rentalo.com/Special-Offers.html, now featuring more than 500 offers.
