The Luxury Buyer

Posted by Amber Fox on Wed, Oct 18, 2017 @ 19:10 PM

I love to travel.  It’s surprising since I travel extensively for work, that I also chose it as my hobby for leisure.  However, because I still work, I have limited time to vacation.  This means that when I plan a trip, it is going to be a special one.  In the past 10 years, I’ve had the opportunity to travel to Patagonia, Italy, Switzerland, Greece, France, Italy again, Peru, Croatia, The Azores, Costa Rica, Nova Scotia, and of course Italy again.  I’ve also managed to fit in some great places in the US in between all those international flights!

Painting a Verbal Picture of Your Hotel

Posted by Scott Merrick on Tue, Sep 19, 2017 @ 15:09 PM

The expression “A picture is worth a thousand words” refers to the notion that a complex idea can be conveyed with a single image.  That’s assumed to be the case when establishing marketing images for your hotel.  But how do you convey that same level of meaning or essence over the phone with a guest when they call your hotel?

After the First Impression – Can you come back from a less than stellar beginning?

Posted by Jennifer Young on Tue, Jul 11, 2017 @ 12:07 PM

Scientists have told us that a first impression is formed within the first 2-7 seconds of meeting someone.  That’s a very short amount of time for someone to form an opinion of you. And yet, we do. In person, on the phone, via email, over social media – no matter the medium, we form very quick decisions on whether we want to deal with the person we’ve met or not.

First Impressions: Where does it all begin?

Posted by Barbara Randi on Wed, Jun 07, 2017 @ 08:06 AM

Online dating, job interviews, seeking out a guest - what do they all have in common?  Obviously, the need for a good first impression! However, where does that first impression take place? If you’re looking for that special someone, a long-term relationship, you complete the form, post it, take a photo, post it and then wait. I mean, wait! Isn’t there something else?

Keeping Customer Touch Points in the Age of Technology

Posted by Joe Lipham on Mon, Mar 13, 2017 @ 14:03 PM

One of the great joys I get from my job is the ability to walk into a room full of participants who have grown up with internet and dazzle and yes, amaze them with tales of a time when hotels did not have computers. The looks on the faces of the participants are priceless as they try to imagine how they would check someone in, process a credit card, etc. The best part is when they declared it can’t happen. But happen it did.
