New Year’s Resolutions – Start Planning NOW! (Day 1)

We are going to take our Blog Posts this week and dedicate them to jump starting those New Year’s Resolutions!   5 days of topics to help you think about planning for 2012!

Let’s Begin with Social Media!

Many Innkeepers have already embraced Social Media to increase their bookings.   If you are already Blogging, Facebooking, Tweeting, Google + “ing” and producing Videos for your business then Great JOB! 

And your New Years Resolution #1 is to KEEP IT UP!

If you aren’t yet convinced you need to be involved in managing Social Media for your business, then I encourage you to take 15 minutes and watch the 3 videos below, in consecutive order.  Note the increase in Social Media use since the first video was posted in 2009.

“After 35 years in the innkeeping business, having owned a design firm, having worked in marketing, as well as having a dagree in education, we thought we knew it all. Then we met Lisa from Acorn IS. We knew nothing!!

Acorn has given us amazing industry knowledge with their ongoing educational programs… Through Acorn, our online marketing has been given a tremendous boost and our increased occupancy is a testament to that fact.

If you are an innkeeper and you market your inn online through your website, social media and the like, or if you are thinking about doing so, signing up for these classes will be the best investment you could possibly make.

If this hasn’t convinced you, give me a call! Elizabeth 508-487-2779″ [Read More]

“As a small inn owner, staying out in front of the pack and up with what is going on in my industry is paramount to my success. Participating in Acorn University helps me do just that.
