Colorado's Bed & Breakfast Innkeepers Association to Host Web and Social Media Workshops for Innkeepers and Aspiring Innkeepers November 6th
The Bed & Breakfast Innkeepers of Colorado will meet on Monday, November 6th from 11:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. in beautiful Woodland Park, CO, for a special networking and educational event where innkeepers and aspiring innkeepers will share information and learn important marketing tips from experts in website design and marketing, and social media. This is a chance for those in the travel industry to "Get Social."
At 12:00 noon, lunch will be served and at 12:30 p.m., workshops will take place on web tools and tricks and social media marketing to engage attendees in keeping up with the electronic times.
Featured speakers include:
Chelsy Offutt - Director of Communications for the Colorado Springs Convention and Visitors Bureau. Chelsy will focus on a Social Media tour for a travel journey, both for beginners and seasoned Tweeters.
Annie Buck - Local, Social Media and Education Support at Acorn Internet Services will help you determine if innkeepers are on the right marketing path.
Stop selling and start inspiring, educating and getting "social" with travelers including:
- All About Blogs - Learn about three formats to keep readers coming back for more.
- Social Synergy - How the "Rule of 5" can amplify a message and make (social) life easier. So, a bed and breakfast business is on social media. There is a post of a cool photo here and there, someone is given a well-deserved Retweet, and maybe scrolled on an Instagram feed or two. While an innkeeper may not be a social media novice, Chelsy will give a refresher on how to best leverage platforms for exposure and engagement.
Keep Informed of Today’s Ever Changing Online Landscape. The Web is constantly changing and Annie will share with attendees, the most up-to-date information and tricks of the trade to make and keep a successful online presence. Annie will outline the Free Google Tools to Use Including:
-Track Revenue Sources
-Keep Track of Your Health
-Make Sure Your Site is Up to Speed
-Give Google the Correct Information about Your Business
-Make Sure Your Code is Correct
Both Chelsy and Annie are website and media professionals, providing a great opportunity to learn from best.
