Anybody getting good results from their facebook page? What's working for you? Have you tried anything from this list?

I give a 25% discount for a stay of 7 nights or more. It recently occurred to me that someone needing to stay 6 nights could save over $100 by booking 7 nights and leaving after 6. I wonder if anybody will ever figure that one out!

I just copied the coupon in the article to post a "$25 off" Weekend Getaway FB coupon. We'll see if I can find a taker!

It's interesting how they say to give a specific amount of cash off, rather than giving a percent off. The psychology of selling and buying, I guess.

That is why I do $10 off, instead of 10%, 10 bucks sounds like more. Smiling

We have LAST MINUTE RENTALS 25% off on the parks site I admin. Not sure how well that would work for the B&B angle, but it could.

More people come to my website from FB than from any other single source, but I suspect most of them are locals, who, as the article says, are coming due to interesting content rather than coming to book rooms.

I keep doing blog posts about local things to do, and our Civil War history, and I think it's all news to most of the locals! If nothing else, I'm educating the local population on some things they never knew before about their own town!

I do the same Arkie. Major happenings in the area, my web hits are out the roof as locals look to see where & when. I also profile new businesses and events.
