Hmmm $500 invest in wine carafes with my logo, and the Vintage Virginia documentary CDs for packagesInteresting article. For me, $500.00 - new office chairs; $5,000.00 - landscaping or advertising; $50,000 - new, bigger bathrooms and each room would have individual thermostats..
Good idea about the marketing company. I want to put some of my $50k toward that, too.I've just done the first two of these:
1. $500 New desktop computer and printer for the B&B since ours crashed.
2. $5,000 We're putting at least that into our OQ...paint, laminate & tile for the floor we're picking up tomorrow, Having it professionally installed (no more big do-it-yourself projects since we're novices at it). New toilet, Cutting into our cabinets in the kitchen to install a dishwasher, new mid-range counter tops in kitchen and bathroom. Some new furniture to "stage" the OQ. Check this out...we're going to buy this when the flooring is done. We need to be able to have family stay in the OQ during the busy season and this looks like a good option corner sofa bed with storage
In the long run, this project will probably be more than the $5,000, so I'll carry it over to the $50,000
3. $50,000 finish the OQ project, then do some deferred maintenance to the other buildings, probably another $5,000. With the remainder I would hire a professional marketing company to evaluate the marketing efforts I've already done and to put in place their new recommendations. We've already spent about $2,000 to redo our website (currently in progress). With any leftover money, I would have someone come in and do a professional landscaping job..
$500 is chump change. You can't get much done for that. Maybe some paint or new bedding..
In that case, if the $500 is being handed out, I'll take yours as well. C'mon. Chump change? With what each of us do everyday on a shoestring $500 could really make a difference especially if used properly. That's the idea about thinking what you would do with different amounts of money.Proud Texan said:$500 is chump change. You can't get much done for that. Maybe some paint or new bedding.
