I’m sure you’ve all seen the TV commercials where the person comes on the screen and says, “I could NEVER lose weight on my own”, but with XYZ Program I’ve lost 30, 40, 50 pounds and am in the best shape I’ve ever been in my entire life!
Even successful athletes, in real life and on the big screen, all had people in their lives (Coaches) that helped them reach their goals…
- Nadia had Béla Károlyi
- The Bears in the 80’s had Mike Ditka
- and Rocky had Mickey
… just to name a few!
This concept of having a Coach even applies in the world of Innkeeping. Innkeepers can become more successful in their own businesses if they have the right Coach helping them.
Acorn IS has spent over a decade coaching, teaching and supporting Innkeepers with their dream. As time passes, it’s only getting harder and harder to continue to be successful Innkeeper. Between keeping up with the Internet, Google, Social Media, Blogging, Newsletters, Website and studying your Statistics, let alone all the tasks involved in just “Running your Inn”, you may find you need a Coach to help you set your priorities and focus on the most important things you need to spend your time on when it comes to Marketing your Business.
Since 2005 we have been offering our MarketWatch Program to Innkeepers who wanted help from a Coach. Someone who would watch all the different facets of their online placement, and offer advice and suggestions to help you grow their businesses.
Just recently, our team of MarketWatch Project Managers met and worked together to totally revamp our MarketWatch Program. We updated the items that need to be evaluated on a Monthly, Quarterly, Semi-Annual or Yearly basis and prioritized THE MOST IMPORTANT THINGS that all Innkeepers need to be watching, tracking and doing to achieve the highest possible level of success.
