Why do I do this?  Mom and Dad have left this earth and B&B, Inns are the closest things to "going home again" for me.  As we are advised to move forward in life, to help ourselves rather than wallow in sadness, we mourn a while, then pick ourselves up and live life.  To seek things that fill our time with that which make us happy while making a difference in someone else's world.  The sermon is over.  LOL  Now go forth and prosper.  wink

Thanks everyone who participated in B&B Mascot and Inn Days.  We've earned lots of exposure from the bestsellers' newsletters, FB ads, animal foundations and it's still coming.  A few 2020 B&B calendars left if anyone is interested.  Will post if more results.  Thanks again!  Have a prosperous fall-winter season, everyone!  Smiling

2020 B&B Mascot Calendar Kick-Off!

This effort is to celebrate innkeepers who adopt homeless pets as mascots at their inns.  Also, to B&B's who welcome disabled first responders, military to lodge with their service animals.  To commemorate the event, Dexter the Cat had his people create a calendar showcasing some of the B&B's who support this effort.  As this is a private effort, calendars are in limited quantity and can obtained at some participating inns or on ebay.  A link is enclosed for your convenience.  Thank you and Inn-joy Much!

Dexter the Cat and his Bestsellers' Buddies - Nelly, Molly, Abbey and Pipsqueak!

I just started my FB page recently, but I am still trying to figure out how it works etc.  Not sure what the adds portion means?

 

Any suggestions?

Hi Cheryl, found Dragonfly on FB and gave it some activity.  If so inclined, get in, post a little about your inn, events, photos, whatever you like.  Promote your B&B for free.  ;-)  Best!

I may not be understanding correctly, are you referring to the Ads Center tab? If so, I've not used myself, but Facebook would like to sell you advertising to promote your business, from what I understand for a fee your posts and page would be promoted to additonal viewers, guess I'm a cheapskate and take the slower route of gaining folks to my page by posting things I hope potential guests will enjoy.

With combined FB ads, pages, activity, etc., we've earned 900+ hits, engagements, replied to invites.  Three innkeepers got that free attention.  And we're still going.  Drop me the name of your inn here and I'll welcome you to the page(s) where you can post about your property.  Thanks to the Innspiring peeps who are supporting their B&B and the inn-dustry.  Appreciated! 

Oh and I'm not selling any names, contact info or giving it out.  However, if you're on the FB promo hoopdee, you are free to send inn-fo to peeps posted there.  I believe that's networking, the purpose for ads.  I was careful to send to mature interested, individuals.

Over a 1,000 hits, intros to inn-thusiasts!  FB ad circulation is completed but still getting posts and exposure.  Not too late to promo your inn on 2020 B&B Mascot campaign page.

Sorry about that, Silverspoon.  Sometimes the suffix gets cut off when C&P.  See how this one works.  When in, post your inn's name and a little about your property etc.  Engage and be seen.  Thanks SS!
