Got Revenue?

Revenue? Do You Want More?

When Mark and I were still Innkeeping, we were no different than most Innkeepers, we were driven by growing revenue. Our Goal was to hit 100% for the summer (our peak season months). We actually only achieved about 95% for those months, a year or so before we sold the Inn, and we and our cleaning help were all exhausted!

Revenue is a DRIVING FORCE for Many Innkeepers!

An Innkeeper recently shared with me an email they received from another provider in our industry quoting the following numbers for increased revenue using their website system.

“On average our customers experience anywhere between a 2% – 5% increase in occupancy.
What does this mean to your property?
– 5 rooms
– ADR of $150.00

– 2 nights average stay
For properties like this our system is helping to bring in $500 to $1,200 of additional revenue per month.”

The funny thing was, the Innkeeper that was being solicited had created a new custom site design with Acorn Internet Services about 6 months ago, and they were up over 30% compared to last year. A huge difference compared to the 2%-5% being quoted as part of the sales pitch solicitation.

So, I thought it was important to bring into perspective the True Value a Web site (either Custom or Turnkey) created by Acorn IS can bring to your bottom line.

And what better way to share that information than to let you hear the numbers directly from a few of our design clients.
