•Seeing a page “bird-watcher” for a bird-watcher, shows him that you understand his specific needs and that your place is indeed suitable and great for bird-watchers.
•If your bird-watching page is great (not only about your lodge, but how to organize a bird-watching trip in Panama) they might want to share it with their community (on social media etc…).
•Enhance your SEO on specific niche markets keywords.
•Make it easier and quicker for your guest to find the exact information that they are looking for.
•Save time by answering to their specific questions directly on the website, avoiding them to ask by email, and if so, share easily the link towards this specific page where they’ll find it all.
