In a recent Acorn webinar, we were looking at different kinds of listings, and as we always get lots of questions about BedandBreakfast.com, we looked at the site and saw a result similar to this:
Since we were pretty sure the Featured Property Autions were no more, and we had customers telling us that weren't able to bid to be a Featured Property, we went to the best source we know, Janice Hurley Hollis, Head of Industry Relations for BedandBreakfast.com and asked her about it. Here is BedandBreakfast.com's response:
"Since FPA (Featured Property Auctions) has ended we are still finding different ways to highlights members in these spots. We do not have a specific plan to share at this point with how those spots and the search will work in the future."
Thanks to Janice for the update!
It is tipical for how bandb.com has been operating in the last year! They are runing a suicide strategy since they do not know how to handle / compete with AirBnB.
Best example: The number of clicks to Fredericksburg, TX which is a booming tourist town, has dropped on BandB.com by 60 % over the last 2 years. The % of traffic to our Inn coming from BandB has dropped from 12 % to less than 1 %! Since they stopped the Inn of the month!
