If you’ve been doing a lot of traveling, you know that the next best thing to traveling extensively all over the world is to own your own bed and breakfast. There’s nothing like rubbing shoulders with global travelers. They clue you in on what it’s like to travel all over the world.
In a way, you’re kind of like living vicariously through them. Their stories not only inspire but their stories also inform you of what you need to know so you can step up the quality of the kind of accommodations you offer to the general public.
With that said, you’re kind of caught in a chicken or egg problem. How can you get these stories and feedback when a few people are booking with your bed and breakfast through Airbnb? At the same time, how can you get bookings when people are not reviewing your place?
It is quite a paradox. It definitely is a quite a problem to solve. Unfortunately, if you find yourself in that tough spot, it’s going to be very hard to dig yourself out of it. Still, if you really want to ensure that you gain some sort of competitive advantages as far as your local competitors are concerned, you need to step up.
Your bed and breakfast experience can be greatly enhanced by your addition of garden decking. Don’t freak out. A lot of people think that when they put in garden decking that they necessarily have to spend an arm and a leg. Believe me, this is how I used to think.
However, after getting some modular garden decking from a local composite decking shop, it blew my mind as to how cheap it was. And the great thing about all of these is that you spend very few dollars to maximize your perceived value.
Let’s face it. In the competitive doggy dog world of the bed and breakfast local business, even a small difference from your competitors can mean a lot. Even if everybody’s charging the same amount of money, if it is obvious that you are offering something a little bit better, don’t be surprised if you get a lot more bookings.
That’s how the market works. So get to it and start putting in the right kind of garden decking. Otherwise, the market might just get the better of you. Believe me, this is not fun. The worst part to all of it is that weird sense you have that you’re just unlucky. You get this weird sense that you are just at the wrong place at the wrong time and your stars just won’t line up right. Get real. Seriously. It’s all your choice. Choose to do something different.
