Marketing and search engine optimization shouldn't end on your home page.
With Starboard Suite, every bookable event you add to your public calendar gets its own page, with a unique URL that's optimized for Google.
We've even implemented Google's "event schema" to pro-actively promote your event information, images and ticket prices to Google's "knowledge graph".
As a result, most customers see a significant bump in page rank of their primary website, and a noteworthy increase in bookings directly through their Starboard Suite event pages.
Specify the value, expiration, and any restrictions for your voucher campaign. Then import voucher codes directly into your control panel and allow customers to redeem vouchers online — saving you, and them, a ton of headaches. You can even allow customers to redeem their codes for face value after they expire.
Share real inventory across your online, phone and walk-up sales, and completely eliminate overbooking.
