All hail the bed and breakfast, guest house, small independent hotel… who knows the difference anyway? We’re here to tirelessly champion all that is good in our industry and defend it vigorously against the forces that want to drain its vitality. Let’s celebrate and make sustainable everything that helps the world of independent accommodation to be varied, fun, interesting and profitable.
We will do two things: 1) Talk and 2) Generate Sales.
1) Talk: listen, chat, share, laugh and inform.
theBandBer.com is a place to share ideas, join forces, learn new things, find strength in numbers and have a little fun along the way. It’s not a forum for whingeing but somewhere to find solutions and provide answers to challenges and issues.
2) Generate Sales: sustainability requires bookings.
As an experienced accommodation owner, you already know that for variety to survive it requires sustenance and that means profitable sales with more heads on beds. The rise of the internet and social media presents major opportunities. Together we can grasp these technologies and make them work to sustain independent accommodation. A sister site to theBandBer.com will be a customer-facing site called BandBer.com, where we will generate sales.
theBandBer.com is a trade site, so there will be no membership costs. There will also be opportunities to advertise and be listed on the public site, www.bandber.com. We aim to be self-funding within a year.
