How to promote reservations on your BentoBox website
Edited

Once your integration has been configured, there are multiple ways to promote Reservations:

  1. Add a CTA to your website 

  2. Add your reservations link as a navigation tab

  3. Add an Alert

1. Add a CTA to your website

Navigation Settings gives you the ability to create call-to-action buttons (or CTAs) on your website’s navigation.

To create or edit a Reservations button, go to Website > Pages > Navigation Settings:

You will have the option to create two buttons‚Äď primary and secondary. Primary buttons appear in the main navigation, and secondary buttons appear in the footer.¬†

The settings are the same for each:

  • Toggle:¬†this publishes or un-publishes the button.

  • Label:¬†this is the text that will appear on your button.

  • Destination:¬†select ‚ÄúBentoBox Reservations‚ÄĚ from the dropdown list to automatically direct your customers to the Reservations widget.

  • Show on Mobile:¬†you can select whether you want the button to appear in the top navigation, in the bottom footer, or both on mobile.¬†

2. Add your Reservations link as a navigation tab

If both your built-in CTAs are already in use and you still want to promote Reservations, you may add it as a link.
