How to attract the attention and interest of your marketplace
JB - I follow a few inns online that ONLY promote their B&B, nothing else. They are never 'real' people behind their posts. In fact I don't even know who they are. They solicit rooms, only. Then there are those who are inncredible, I see their areas, their inns, their personality, and I think "Man if I could only get to their xyz location...I would love every minute!" They give so much. They are not purely selling...a breath of fresh air.

And there are the innkeepers who are really good sports when having pix taken...

I was thinking this same thought when I saw THE RED CHAIR at the latest inn, there sits ye empty red chair. Would be nice to have the innkeepers of each inn with the red chair as it made its journeys.
I have my own way of thinking, that doesn't appeal to the avg innkeeper me thinks. Now if it were a coffee cup that stated BWTS or Select Reg, then they could take it in a unique place in a room, or breakfast view or whatever. Wait, I would still like to see it with the innkeepers...scratch that. Then at the PAII conference or wherever it is from, it could be shared as a slide show or running display with the inn names and innkeepers at a kiosk or something...I don't know. You get what I mean. MORE FUN. INNKEEPERS NEED TO BE MORE FUN!
That's my story and I'ma stickin' to it!

Another needed nudge from JB! I do have a few pics of us on FB, but I just did another post after reading this thread.

I am a bloody idiot.
Here I am saying these things, wondering why so many are not real people on their social media, and then I see this, yes...

I guess it's better than not doing anything at all, but it just feels wrong.
