5 Cost-Effective Alternatives To Facebook + Google Ads For Marketing Your Escape Room With

Today I’m going to be addressing a concern I’m seeing more and more – and that is surrounding the costs of running Facebook and Google ads. As a marketeer, I love these paid ad platforms because they allow fantastic targeting – but it comes with a price.

And following the difficult year the industry has had with the pandemic, more and more escape rooms are trying to minimise their costs. And I don’t blame them.

So what alternatives to these expensive platforms exist that escape rooms can use to market themselves instead?

Luckily there’s plenty to choose from, and I’m going to be sharing the top 5.

3 Additions To Your Online Booking Form To Increase Bookings

Today, I want to talk about your online booking form – and specifically how to get more bookings on it. After all, that is the ultimate goal from all of the marketing, advertising and hard work you put into promoting your escape room – right?
Online booking forms can take many shapes and sizes – many escape rooms use specific booking software, whilst others have an in-house booking form. Whatever you use, they’ll always be different ways to increase conversions – i.e. increase the number of bookings you get.
So today I’m going to share 3 of the most important additions you can make to your online booking so you can get more bookings and customers.
Think about it – all the handwork and money you spend and invest into your marketing to get people onto your website, and onto your booking form – only for the vast majority to leave without booking. Incredibly frustrating, and unavoidable to an extent.
Now I’m not saying or promising every single person who visits your booking form will place a booking with you if you make these 3 additions – but they’ll be more likely to. And every extra booking is a bonus.

How to never, ever, run out of customers for your escape room again!

Today I want to help solve a problem that I know many escape rooms ultimately end up facing, several years into their opening: running out of a customers!
As you can imagine, this is a problem you want to do all you can to avoid – and today I’ll show you how.
This problem exists because of one fundamental, albeit unfortunate, truth about escape rooms: Not everybody will want to play them. Sure, the industry has grown so much over the last decade, there will always be some people who are not interested. I know, it’s hard to read – and trust me it’s hard to type, but it’s true!
That means that eventually, one way or another, you’ll start drying up – running out of customers.
