Train your staff

Your guests should know they can count on you, but make sure they don’t need to. Well trained staff will be able to handle most of their needs well and quickly.

The staff keep your business running and can make or break your reputation. Listen to them, find out what skills you can help them develop and commit to them. Be professional and dedicated towards them so they do the same to your guests.

Gather your data

Data is at the root of a successful (or not) marketing campaign so make sure you have it. A lot of booking is done online these days and OTAs don’t always share guests’ data with you. Make sure you gather the information yourself during their stay so you are no so dependant on OTAs.

This information can be a great asset when developing loyalty programs or personalized deals.

Online reputation

Online reviews are more important than ever. Potential customers most likely will check the experiences of past customers before making a decision.

Make sure you are on top of all of your reviews and reply to every single one, specially the negative ones in an amicable manner.
