Be a leading B&B owner this Easter – a Guide
Have an online presence
- Ensure your website is responsive. Most people these days own a smartphone so a website that scales to mobile devices is necessary and allows people to jump from page to page without having to pinch and zoom.
- State the essentials – accommodation types, prices, breakfast times, office hours, and payment methods.
- Ensure people can book and pay online in a secure and safe way. Look for an e-commerce provider that can help you accept payments online.
Be equipped to accept all kinds of payments
Entice people: offer a special or incentive
Make sure third party accommodation booking sites are reputable
Entrepreneur.com offers the following advice:
“Outsourcing pieces of your business to third-party vendors can be tremendously beneficial if executed correctly. To minimise risks, remember to anticipate their process and adjust your methods to streamline working with them, get the third party sales rep in your corner, and take responsibility if a client is unhappy due to a vendor’s actions (or inactions).”
