Last September for Shameless Promotion Month, I wrote a post giving innkeepers three ways to promote your Bed and Breakfast in September. People liked it so much, I’m going to give you three more ways in today’s post.


  1. If your inn is located in an area that gets Fall color, pull out those beautiful Autumn photos you took last year and share them with your friends and followers. Post on social media, add them to your inn newsletter and your blog. Invite guests to book with you to enjoy the season. Make it interesting like the Wright Inn in Asheville, NC. by including your prediction of when the peak color will happen this year.
  2. If your town has a Fall festival of any type, create a special promotion for attendees. If there is no Fall festival, highlight some of the other fun Fall activities. My local area has several ‘pick your own’ farms and my daughter and I take a short trip each year to stock up on apples. You could create a ‘pick your own room’ promotion allowing guests to pick their favorite room on a first come first served basis.
  3. Is there a major event coming up in 2015 that guests need to book for now? The Port Washington Inn is thirty minutes away from one of the PGA golf tournament locations. They’re offering a promotion  giving guests the opportunity to book a room now for the event. I like the way they’ve put the promotion together so be sure to check out the link.
