Have you ever thought about facilitating a local event? Depending upon the size of your bed and breakfast, you may be able to accommodate hosting group meetings. These could be chamber of commerce meetings, book groups, business leads groups, or some kind of club with a particular interest.
These are opportunities for local people who are not familiar with your bed and breakfast to be introduced via their group meeting. You may decide to be available to give tours before and/or after the meeting to attendees.
This is also a way to make money because the groups will be compensating you for using your space to hold their meetings. Word of mouth will spread quickly that your experience hosting group meetings and other events such as weddings or music performances.
When people come to your bed and breakfast for a local event, they may be reminded that this would be a great place to spend the night. Your bed and breakfast could be the perfect place for them to send their out of town relatives who are visiting.
Bed and breakfast blogging can devote blog posts promoting your events on your website. The events will draw more people to your bed and breakfast as they visit your B&B or read about your events in your blog. It is a win-win situation!
