Welcome to the Megaplex Business Booster Newsletter as advertised in our
longstanding Newsletter: "Shopping in
Sandton". This short monthly newsletter will give you quick tips
that can make your business more profitable, safer and –even– more fun!
Are you or someone you know looking for a hotel? Then see this month's Google tip.
Otherwise, you might want somewhere local to stay. We have
a comfortable convenient cottage available in Morningside near Rivonia from
March. See below.
We also list three of the many scam emails received this month, with a
warning for your accounts department.
On-Line Business Tip: Search for Hotels on Google:
Google is the most popular search engine in the solar system. We know Google
as a search engine that will find websites for you. However, nowadays Google is trying to make money from you directly rather than refer you to
somebody else. Here is an example:
With the school holidays over, you might want to get away for a bit. You can
find hotels on Google Search. Underneath the paid-for adverts, you can filter
hotels by price, location, ratings, and hotel class. They will let you view
hotel details, including photos and reviews. Then you can reserve a room with
one of Google's "booking partners".
