Top Bed and Breakfasts with the Best Offerings

Comments Off on Top Bed and Breakfasts with the Best Offerings

Bed and breakfasts promise the warmth and comfort of home for those on the road. But, how many of us are cozily welcomed home with a glass of wine by the fire or awoken by the smell of coffee and freshly baked scones every day?

Like at your most generous friend’s house, the innkeepers live on site, so they know the area backwards and front and they can’t wait to show you the best of it. The houses themselves, often in an idyllic setting, harbor a rich history and ooze character.

 

Whether they’re haunted, were once homes of grand families, or have been passed down by generations of B&B owners, every portrait and floral bedspread tells a story.

#1 Beach in America – Siesta Key Sarasota Florida

Comments Off on #1 Beach in America – Siesta Key Sarasota Florida

As a bed and breakfast in a tourist area, you want to include as much value-added information for your guests as possible, especially on your website.  Provide links to important articles on blogs and other websites dealing with the latest tourism news in your area.  Here is just one example, dealing with Siesta Key Beach in Sarasota, Florida, which has been voted the number 1 beach in the USA.

Sand is pretty shifty stuff. No beach is static. All sand moves up and down the coastline because of wind, storms and ocean currents. The shifting dune is a common phenomenon in sandy areas. If the sand is eroding in one place, it’s building up somewhere else. Prevailing winds roll the surface sand from the bottom of the windward side of the dune over the top and down the leeward side, so that in time the entire dune may be rolled for miles.

Bed and Breakfast Florida

Nobody can calculate how many eons of time have passed since Siesta Key sand first appeared from fragmented rock, but Siesta Key sand is quite old. We know this not only because of the very fine grains, but also because other components of the original rock, such as feldspar, mica and other minerals, have almost completely disappeared, leaving only the extremely hard quartz.

Siesta Key’s beaches have been recognized for cleanliness, water quality and safety by one of the world’s top experts, Dr. Stephen Leatherman (also known as “Dr. Beach”) of the National Healthy Beaches Campaign, and qualifies as a Blue Wave Beach by the Clean Beaches Council. The Travel Channel ranks Siesta as one of Florida’s, and America’s, top ten beaches.

So now you know why Siesta Key sand is ranked tops in the world. It feels soft and cool to your bare feet, even in the strongest Florida sun – and that means great beach walking. Sculptors love it too, because it packs down firm and smooth, which makes for awesome sand sculptures at the island’s sand sculpting contests.

New Booking Engines, Lower Prices for 2011

Comments Off on New Booking Engines, Lower Prices for 2011

Following is a letter published to our fellow members of the Professional Association of Innkeepers International (paii.org):

We wish to introduce to you our new Booking Engines (Online Reservation System) for 2011.  They’re available right now!  BedBreakfastTraveler.com (Instant World Booking) believes that this announcement is quite timely.  Economic conditions in North America, and for the B&B industry as a whole, are still quite lackluster, despite earlier forecasts.  Like you, we feel that internet technology should not only make our lives easier, but also save money … and lots of it.  Instant World Booking has introduced a pricing model for Booking Engines that does just that.

In short, BedBreakfastTraveler.com (Instant World Booking) guarantees you a much lower cost for your website’s booking engine than your current provider.

And what’s more, you even choose the way you want to pay: commission pricing, monthly cost, per-transaction cost, etc.  We can customize a pricing plan to meet your specific needs, as well as reduce your costs.  You choose the pricing model that’s best for you.  What really matters is — you’ll be saving money.

For years now, we’ve been reading our competitors’ websites and blog posts explaining their cost structure.  You’ve probably seen some of these articles, trying to justify commission costs of 25% – 30% for online reservation programs.  And, if you use a competing Booking Engine for your website, you may be paying from $50 per month (that’s the absolute lowest) up to $300 or more per month, plus a commission for every reservation.  And, then there’s the setup fee (as high as $999), and plenty of restrictions on how much availability you need to allocate to avoid higher costs.

If there’s any one message I want to get across here:  Please Don’t Overpay!  It’s no wonder that in the last year, some of these competing providers have been bought out by major corporations or conglomerates.  This has been widely publicized in the news.  Let’s just see which direction their prices go in the next year.

There’s no secret to why BedBreakfastTraveler.com (Instant World Booking) can offer the same, and better, services for a much lower cost.  We’ve been developing better Booking Engines and online marketing services for close to a decade.  And, we’re passing on the savings of our smart solutions to you.

Check out a demo of our Booking Engine for your website here:

http://www.bedbreakfasttraveler.com/booking-engine.php

Then, contact us and tell us how much you pay for your current solution.  We guarantee a lower cost, and you can even get set up for free in just 24-48 hours.

Check out our blog for more innkeepers’ intelligence, and get the real breakdown of pricing for some of our most popular competitors:

http://www.bedbreakfasttraveler.com/blog_bb/category/business-intelligence/

Even if you’re not in the market for a new Booking Engine just yet, list your property with BedBreakfastTraveler.com today for free.  You get 15+ pages of web-optimized, translated content about your B&B (we translate your B&B descriptions for you).  This comes complete with custom searchable maps and extras.  This is an unprecedented value.

http://www.bedbreakfasttraveler.com/listings/add_property.php

Thank you for your valuable time.  I promise you that, after spending a couple of minutes checking out our Booking Engine demos, you’ll be saving a lot of money in 2011.

Don’t ever turn down free advertising

Comments Off on Don’t ever turn down free advertising

“Don’t ever turn down free advertising. Marketing has a ‘cumulative effect’. In this case, less is not more. More is definitely More!”

The “cumulative effect” is even more valuable if the source of advertising is costless.   To learn how it works, read:
