Figured "word of mouth" and folks here could recommend an agency that knows what it'd doing with marketing lodging/B&B?

If you are using one (and are happy) or have in the past (they made you happy) .....please let us know.

Thanks

PhineasSwann .....apologies, our original architect did those drawings (fired him 3/4 way through construction).  As far as the modifications to the drawings, I used Paint.net

Sorry, no information on marketing, but I just wanted to compliment you on your place. It's beautiful! And you add such personality.

We lived in Palm Harbor when I was in my elementary years. I went to swim class and summer camp somewhere in Dunedin. We moved back to Arkansas in my 6th grade year.

Whitestone Marketing also gets lots of raves in our industry. They are not cheap at all, but thorough.

On a separate note, can I ask you a question? What program did you use to draw up your floor plans and site layouts at the bottom of your web page. I've been trying to find something I can use to sketch out a map of our campus. Thanks and good luck. Great looking place!

Don't have an answer to your question, more of a contrary view that with our small place I'm mostly selling "me" and I know "me" better than anyone else. Hard headed that I can learn to do anything that others can do, for me that's finding my niche. We're mountains rather than beach, many larger, newer places, smaller, ritzy, classy places than our mom & pop motel, but I bet I have some of the best guests visiting, it's a good life.

My apology for butting in without an answer to your question, however my reason is that I see a lot of smart successful folks here on this forum, I've learned a lot over my somewhat short time as a member so my contrary suggestion is to pick the minds here not for someone to market for you, but for guidance to help you grow to the place you desire.

My apologies, thanks Arks. It IS awesome.

Should have gone to your profile ... was just seeing what's under your signature.  

I liked the people at BBteam dot com   You can check out what they offer on their website under Consulting. The Inn Tuneup  ... 

I agree with Kathleen about Acorn ... though I have no personal knowledge of them

Both Q4 and Acorn do free webinars for the industrythat are very helpful. They naturally do a little promotion, but neither pushes it. They offer a free consult. They both do good marketing. I do not use either - being 3-rooms and not in tourist mecca of any kind (I made my location the destination it is) - it is above my pay-grade. I am also at an age that I am not sure I want too much more than I have, just would like to have more each month rather than everything in ONE month.

Q4 or Acorn.  Not cheap, but good.

First things first ... do you not have a website? Just a Facebook page?
