In this lesson:
- Learn how to add a Facebook Call-To-Action button to your establishment's Facebook Page.
- This will enable visitors to your page to link directly to your booking form.

Open your booking form.
On the menu, under "Bookings", click on "Online Booking" to open your property's booking form.
This will open up on a new tab.
Open the Facebook page to be linked.
On a new tab, log in to Facebook, navigate to and open the Facebook page (not personal profile) you would like to add the Call-To-Action button to.
Find and edit your Call-To-Action button.

2 - then click "Book Now",
3 - finally, click "Next".
Add the booking form URL as the link to use.
Step 2: Choose the "Link to website" option to specify where the link for the button should go to.
1 - Go to the NightsBridge booking form you opened earlier.
2 - add the following to the end of the URL (link)
Adding the "?nbid=337" text allows you to be able to track which bookings were made on Facebook in your booking reports.
3 - Copy and paste the updated booking form link in the pop up window on Facebook.
Save the changes.
Check that you are happy with the type of button chosen, as well as the link to it, then click "Finish".

To see if the button works properly:
