Hi guys, a writer with a national senior-focused magazine is looking for people who launched businesses after they reached age 65.  Do any innkeepers come to mind that fit this age bracket that I can pass along?

If you're an innkeeper, check this out!! So cool.
 
Thanks to a post by Fred Tanner, I learned about Google Business photos a few months ago. Looked up the list of approved photographers in Richmond, VA, and emailed them all. Most all of them got back to me, and then started bidding for doing our virtual tour. I also partnered with our local Visitors Center, and worked them into the deal since it would be an hour 1/2 drive for most of the photographers, and wanted to make it more worth their while. I got a GREAT price from several, and then chose one in particular after checking out his portfolio. So, not sure how much it will help me with google placement, but well worth it just to get it on our website home page, (have had several comments on it already). I will also be working to get each room tour on our rooms page as well. Most of the photographers are still looking to build their google portfolios, and will most likely bargain with you. I can highly recommend the photographer that worked with us, and can pass on his info to anyone within a 2 hour radius of Richmond VA. He is even coming back, (for a very nominal fee) in early summer to re-shoot the exterior shots and blend it into our existing tour so that the outside will look nicer.  Check it out at www.innattabbscreek.com

I LOVE how they say "YES" to their guest. It's imperative that innkeepers take care of themselves too!
