Business is all about finding ways to boost your BnB occupancy rates and give your guests unforgettable experiences.

.

Running a bed and breakfast is an ongoing concern. It requires knowing your market, improving guest experiences, and working well online. Here are eleven practical strategies to help you increase your occupancy rate and attract more guests to your cozy and welcoming bed and breakfast.

1. Know Your Target Market

Identifying the right guest is the first step in creating your marketing campaign. Think about the demographics, travel preferences, and uniqueness of your property. This knowledge will help shape your offerings.

.

.

2. Give Discounts With Direct Booking

Offer guests a small discount when they call or better yet come to book at your website, directly. This way, they are more likely to book directly with you, rather than book through the OTA, leaving you with more money.

.

.

3. Good Guest Services

An incredible guest experience will turn your guests into repeat visitors and have them recommending your place to others. Pay attention to every small detail, ranging from the cleanliness and comfort of the rooms to good food and personalized services. Your staff should be trained to be pleasant, helpful, and informed about local points of interest and amenities.

.

.

4. Buy Signs

The curbside appeal of the property is equally essential. Get some excellent direct signs that the travellers will be able to use to find your property and its distinct brand as they are driving.

.

.

5. Create Brochures

The brochures help to make your bed and breakfast look professional and at the same time provide timely details in this modern-day rush. They can also be given out to those businesses that might refer the guest to you, such as tour operators, transport companies, and local restaurants.

.

.

6. Attractive Packages & Specials

Develop value-added packages and specials that relate to what the different guest types are interested in. Weekend getaways, romantic packages, adventure experiences, and much more. Then market those offers with targeted campaign media and local-business joint ventures.

.

.

7. Optimize Your OTA Presence

Booking.com, Expedia, and others are important. In this aspect, good reviews and satisfied customers are crucial to get noticed. Your profile should be accurate and up-to-date, engaging content, and so on.

8. Improve Your Online Presence

A solid online presence in today’s digital age is imperative. Optimize your website, make it user-friendly, and user-responsive, and engage prospective guests in social media platforms.

.

.

9. Encourage Direct Bookings

These direct ones are commission-free and allow you to stay in control of the guest’s relationship. Make sure that your website is mobile-responsive for direct bookings, as this way your guests can easily find a way to your direct booking form.

.

.

10. Cultivate Good Relationships With Travel Agents & Tour Operators

Work in cooperation with the local travel agencies and the tour operators serving your target market. Ensure they have all the information about your property and confirm the commission rates.

 

11. Spruce Up Your Photo Gallery

High-quality property photos really can mean the difference in bookings. Optimize your images, and be sure your best shots are up big and bold.
