Maximize Your Resources as an InnkeeperPosted on: September 18th, 2012 by Archie Kirk
As a Bed and Breakfast innkeeper/owner, one needs to maximize your resources by continually looking for ways to save money. Now I am sure you probably have a cell phone. I have found that the difference between carriers all comes down to service and availability. When your phone is as important a tool to you as it is for me; you need to know that it will work when called upon. The cost is definitely a factor but for me something that really bothers me is this contract thing. If your service, price and products are good; why do you need me to sign a contract. If you are the best of the best, I will not want to leave you. This requires your company to put up or shut up. I have recently come across a new company called Solavei. I love their concept or business model. Instead of spending hundreds of thousands of dollars on advertising they are using the best form of advertising- which is word of mouth. I know the business I get from my happy customers telling others of what a GREAT time they had in Cape May, NJ is priceless. You can’t get enough of that type of advertising. That is why I am very interested in Solavei and their program which includes unlimited voice, text and data on a nationwide 4G network for only $49 per month. I am saving over $75 per month. That is $900 a year. Even if you have an early termination fee the $900 more than makes up for that. My biggest concern is obviously coverage in Cape May, NJ. So far I haven’t had any trouble with service and no one knows I am using another service. Now the really cool part of this besides saving $900 a year, is the reward program that gives me money back. That’s what I call maximizing your resources.
