Displayed prices are for multiple nights. Check the site for price per night. I see hostels starting at 200b/day and hotels from 500b/day on agoda.

First new Ad Banner is online - Agoda.com hotel booking

Recommended Posts

Hi Guys,

I just put the first new ad online, and you should have seen it by now, assuming your not ad blocking. 

Everyone that comes here needs a hotel to stay at. And getting a good deal is much more important than helping the board keep costs covered... now that said, in most cases you can find as good a deal or better using Agoda, so please give it a look for your dates. If the price is the same or better than where you usually book your tickets, please consider using it. We get a commission of the sale price, and while its not very much, it does add up. Over the last year with the ad being located inline in a single forum only its made about $100. Hopefully with the ad more prominent it will get some more activity and actually be worth the hassle. I will monitor it and decide if it needs to stay or go away based on its performance. And annoying PMs saying "wtf is that ugly thing doing in my way" haha.

Is unnecessarily at the bottom of the page as well as the top.

Strange, I don't see the one at the bottom. Still working the kinks out of this.

It was pointed out to me that I should add the note: You need to click the banner, not just go to agoda.com, to give pattayatalk the credit for the visit 🙂

No, on PC. I say strange because I did set it to show on the bottom, but figured that was "broke" as I didn't see it. 

I actually don't want this banner in both places. I am going to try to put a search box at the bottom. That box is way too big for the top, but I think it works better as it allows the user to type in options first (dates, etc). And I don't like that the banner shows prices for multiple nights. It makes some of the places seem way too expensive. Not a very good advertisement IMHO. I am also going to play with their API to see if I create my own banner or ad instead that better fits what our users want - like cheaper places. No sense showing all those 5000 baht a night places. 

Agoda does have a wide range of really cheap options, including hostels for as little as 140 baht per night. I'm not a fan of hostels, but its the first time I've seen them advertised online. Kinda neat. And there are multiple hotels from around 500 baht per night on there. Again, not sure I would stay there as I'm sure the bed is like a rock, but its a good cheap option for someone on a very limited budget, so its good to show them here. In any case, this is just a test at this point. if it goes well, ill leave it or improve it... if not, will think of something else 🙂

I find that, when using a mobile, the advert fills your screen and you need to scroll down to see any posts. 

If you don’t use the forum very often or are new to the site, you could be wondering where the posts are!
