Daily marketing To Do Checklist for Bed and Breakfasts
Have you checked your review sites to see if you have missed any reviews? = 5 minutes
Even if you have signed up for notifications for reviews, don’t rely on them, they do glitch and sometimes they delayed by several days. I would post a postit on your computer to check as often as you can.

Tried to make a reservation for your own inn on a mobile phone = 2 minutes
(Is it easy? Is it mobile friendly? If it’s not mobile friendly, how long did it take you to complete the reservation OR before you got frustrated with it?)

Have you set up Google alerts for your business? = 2 minutes
https://www.google.com/alerts When setting up alerts, I suggest put in variables and put the variables in quotes for better results. Example, one alert “Jane Doe Bed and Breakfast”, second alert “Jane Doe B&B” etc.

We went there for Father's Day Lunch, cute place, food was delicious, when you get 4 diners all loving their lunch and two are restaurant pros, that says something. Service was professional and attentive. Loved this part, I asked for no tomatoes and onions for my sandwich, the waitress asked, "Is this a preference or an allergy?" That threw me for a minute as that was a first. I said "Is that a problem if it's a preference?", "No not at all, we just want to make sure if it's an allergy, we want to make sure we keep things seperate when prepared, so there is no allergy contamination." If there was a sixth star I would give it just for that question.

Our pups and ourselves loved Dr. Sidorsky and Linda. Having two big dogs, one of them getting up there in years, makes vet visits stressful for both our furkids and ourselves. Having a traveling, knowledgeable, and compassionate vet that both dogs warmed up to immediately that was able to come and do an in home visit was beyond blissful. I am now spoiled and will definitely be calling them again when our pups next shots etc. are due.

Great emergency vet, saved our pup's life twice and highly recommended! Unfortunately the regular vet missed the ball totally the last time we brought her in and we almost lost her as a result, thank heavens had the foresight to bring her to our old vet for a second opinion.
