Course #3: Marketing your B&B - focus on internet marketing

Taught by innkeeper and web developer & internet marketer Dieter Gerhard of Birds of a Feather Victoria B&B
Again and again we hear the same scenario from innkeepers who have spent hundreds, often thousands of dollars on websites and website promotion only to receive minimal bookings and/or be listed in the basement of search engines. Effective marketing using the internet requires understanding the profile of the B&B guest as well as the dynamic use of the internet by these very same guests when they are looking for accommodations. This course will give you an over-view of how to stitch it all together.
Cost: $350.00 (add $150.00 for each extra person) plus cost of accommodations where required. Upon completion of the course, receive a 1-year free listing on BBCanada.com (value $125, one per B & B).
