A New Website Can Help Your Bed & Breakfast Buyer Get a Loan, Pop Ups Drive Reservations

Will a New Website Help You Sell Your Inn?

Does a new website help you sell? Some innkeepers and some inn brokers think it does. It is a powerful asset and establishes the professional aspect of your inn.

“We Are In Escrow” – We just received a call from an innkeeper who recently sold his inn – it was just last year that we had built his beautiful new website.

A New Website Can Help Your Buyer Get a Loan – In a competitive market, any edge can be useful in persuading a bank to lend you money. A professional website can be immensely helpful in convincing someone to invest. It shows that you understand the current business atmosphere, and that your business has what it takes to thrive.

A Good Website Establishes Trust

A buyer of your inn is more likely to trust your business when you have a professional website.

“Doubled Occupancy in 4 Months” – “We purchased our inn with a 20% occupancy. In 4 months we took it to 48% occupancy with a new website and some social media.”

What We Heard From Innkeepers This Week

“They Yanked My Site Off-Line” – “I gave this company $4000 ($399 per month plan) to build me a new website. They promised me everything and they couldn’t even size a photo. When I stopped payments, they yanked my new website off line and put up my old site. They disconnected my reservation system so I had no reservations for over a month.”

“We were down about 30% this summer due to the website and to Expedia” putting a STOP HOLD on my account.” (This, combined with our website problem caused the decline in business.) Wisconsin

“Won’t give access” – I’M HAVING A PROBLEM, because my webmaster has all their websites on one server and won’t give me access to the site to make the needed ADA Fixes. They’ve given me an editor’s access but I need Administrative access. Maine Innkeeper

“We called and the company wants $12,000 to build a new site (for our association) and we can’t afford anything like that. We are being held hostage.

“I paid $85 a month for maintenance and got none – I don’t own my website. A national company rents it to me and it’s a complete rip off. Clients wind up hating them. My site is a mess.” Washington State inn

Pop-Ups Love You Back

You’ll be able to activate them at will, put them up and take them down when needed and change them whenever you wish.

We’ll show you how to make more pop-ups. (We provide FREE training when your website is complete)
