If you are planning to put up your own bed and breakfast inn or if you are planning to buy one that is already operating, you need to start thinking how you can promote your B&B. Promoting a product or service that you want to offer is very important. Some business owners wait until the product or service has been launched before promoting them. However, one best strategy is to do the promotion even if the launching has not been done yet. You can use streamers and other mediums to advertise for the opening. People will be curious and they will watch out for the opening. This is the best time to make some special offers that will motivate people to try the service that you are offering. Here are some tips on how to promote the business that you are going to launch.
First, start promoting your bed and breakfast before the launching. This will make the people aware that a new business will be opening. Most people are always curious about a new business. They want to see what’s new and what makes it different from other establishments that offer the same type of service.
This is the time for you to let local residents, tourism agencies and other people in your area know that a new business with new offerings is going to rise in your area.
Second, make use of the media by calling a press conference or by inviting them to a small gathering where you will announce the opening of your business. Prepare materials that will tell them what your business is about, where is it located, how can it be found and when will be the opening. They would be eager to write a short story about you B&B. Being kind to these people will be to your great advantage because they have the power to spread the good news about your business.
Last, don’t hesitate to use excellent advertising materials. Using high quality paper with colorful designs will motivate people to scan your material and later, read it. You can also hang streamers in conspicuous places so that people will see them and they will be aware that a new bed and breakfast facility will open in your area. You can also invite local officials, media men and tourism personnel to have a one day and one night stay in your facility for free. This will allow them to experience your service and if they like it, they will eagerly recommend your establishment to guests. Bed and breakfast inns in Europe are known for their cleanliness and luxurious amenities so let these people see for themselves so that they will be confident enough to recommend you to others.
And of course, getting your bed and breakfast in Europe listed in Bed and Breakfast Euro would mean that millions of potential clients would see the name of your B and B worldwide. This service would help you book guests and answer their queries. This will increase the chances of your B&B business to succeed.
