Did you ever wonder how many animals you saved as a direct consequence of becoming vegetarian or vegan?
According to this calculation by PETA, the average American vegan saves nearly 200 animals every year. That's 200 animals every year that will not have to go through unimaginable suffering in factory farms, fish farms and slaughter houses.
We've made it really simple to find out how many animals you've saved since becoming vegetarian or vegan. Just click the link below to use our calculator and to give yourself or one of your friends a nice reward.
Link to your hotel listing
An easy and effective way to increase visibility for your hotel listing and to make sure that it is displayed prominently by search engines is to add links to your hotel listing on VegTrip. If your hotel has its own website, blog or any other page those all make ideal places to add links to your listing.
If you login and go to edit the details of your hotel, you will find templates at the bottom of the page that you can copy-paste for convenience. Otherwise you can just as well create your own.
Frequently update your hotel details
It's very important to display up-to-date information on your hotel page and to make sure that you let visitors know about what's going on in or around your hotel. Every time you update some textual information on your hotel listing, we will list your hotel on the front page as recently updated, greatly increasing exposure of your listing.
Let visitors know what's going on in or around your hotel
A great way to increase exposure of your property is to make visitors aware of what you have going on there for the moment. Do you offer special time limited offers or events? Is there a festival going on? Those are just some examples of what may generate interest from visitors. You can add up to three such promotions for your hotel at a time and doing so will highlight your hotel on our front page as well as on the special promotions page

Use social media to your advantage
About 30% of our daily traffic is coming directly from various social media networks so it's needless to say that a strong presence here might generate a lot of interest in your hotel. Each hotel page on VegTrip is optimized for easy posting in social media. On Facebook for example, the main hotel image along with the short hotel description will be displayed by default when posting the link to your listing.
Another social network which is very popular with our visitors is Pinterest. It's particularly well suited if you have some great images of your property uploaded.
Add high quality photos
The photos of your property and it's surroundings is one of the most important things a visitor will look at. Many hotels on VegTrip are located in truly stunning locations so it's essential to have photos that makes the location justice. Remember that these are the photos that will represent your property every time people are talking about it in social media. There are many professional photographers around that can help you with this.
