Basic Business Promotion for your Bed and Breakfast or Vacation Rental
When I wrote up this page 4 years years ago, I had this naive notion that bed & breakfast businesses could be corralled into package needs/solutions. Since then I have not yet encountered 2 inns that are even close to the same, with the same obstacles and the same needs. Every customer is actually unique and I always end up custom tailoring my solutions to the individual situation. The packages defined below are now for you to get an understanding of our approaches and how in-depth we can delve. Someday I will update the page, no I mean the whole site! to better reflect reality. Till then be warned that none of the following package solutions will best address your concerns and will end up quite modified to best suit your needs. We will analyze your site and needs, outline a plan and work with you to bring about the best solution that we can devise together.
This is the ideal solution for some of Bed and Breakfast or Vacation Rental businesses. It is great for the "do it yourself" kind of people who have the time and ability to continue building from the foundation that we lay for your business. It is also a great first step, you can always decide to do more later, building on top of what is created in this package. If you are not in a particularly competitive area this alone may also be enough to fill your accommodations.
With our other packages, if we sign you up we guarantee first page search engine results or your money back. With the basic package, however, there is just too much that will be left in your hands, and while you may very well acheive first page results, we simply cannot guarantee it.
Prices range between $700 and $1200. This depends on a number of factors: Are we building you a website? Are you in an easy market? Do you have more than a half dozen rooms?
Website Promotion Basic Package
With this package we will set you up, get you started and leave the rest to you.
There are many folks who are competent DIY people. People who have the time and competency to pick up the ball and stay in the game after we set you on the road with the taste of success fresh on your tongue. This package is for you. If you are in a very competitive tourist destination though, you really ought to think twice about stopping here.
