The Quick Share link explained
Each book has its own unique link called the “Quick Share” link. It will always be the same link for that specific book. It’s a fast and easy way to send your guests your book, particularly where you have a large business with lots of guests.
Using the Quick Share
You simply copy the Quick Share link and send it! Or, if you have a PMS or email workflow/template, just place the Quick Share link in to that process so that you don’t have to keep copy/pasting it to future guests.
Can I Make the Quick Share Link More User-friendly?
Some people ask if there is the option to brand the URL so that it’s more user-friendly. For example hub.touchstay.com/beach-retreat. The answer is no. We’ll never say never, but not right now.
HOWEVER… there are some other ways you can achieve a similar result. Check this article for further suggestions.
Where to Find the Quick Share
To find the Quick Share, go to the “Invite & Share” tab for your guide and it’s there right at the top! If you have multiple guides in your account, then you can also download a csv or xslx file of all your Quick Share links from the Downloads option on the Guides list page.
A Few Important Notes
- If you have any secure information in your guide book then the above process will not be appropriate since your link will include every piece of information in your guide book, which includes any topics that you had marked as Limited Access for security reasons. If this is the case, then you should create unique links for each guest and consider combining with scheduled notifications using Memo, see these articles for more more details about Memo.
- It will also mean that a guest who has checked out will still be able to view the welcome book. However we would point out that this is no different from the case where you send them a PDF or information via any other format over email. We just want you to be aware!
- This method can be very effective as a lead generation tool for you. Some of our customers are including it in their replies to guests who have contacted them about a stay but haven’t yet booked. This differentiates you from the other people a guest may have contacted and, as such, can help boost your conversion.
