What’s the Problem™?
Too small a budget to find new hotel and hospitality marketing approaches or are there options?
We have all seen good ideas at various businesses we interact with, yet we seldom think about ways we might make them work at our hospitality businesses.
- Look at this short video and ask your team at the next meeting to identify three ideas from companies they interact with.
- Create a mini contest among the team and introduce at least two ideas this month from the best of their suggestions.
- In less than six months, you could have as many as a dozen new approaches in operations, marketing, purchasing or training that could cost little more than time.
WHAT’S THE PROBLEM™? is a new section at www.HospitalityEducators.com addressing specific problems that launched in late March 2011. This feature will share specific problems submitted by members and readers or identified from HospitalityEducators.com associates’ consulting.
The problem will be stated in industry terms and there will be at least one potential solution discussed.
WHAT’S THE PROBLEM™? will be open to visitors and members.
More detailed options and responses will be in the MEMBERS ONLY section titled “The Solution Is™”
These areas will include input from a wide range of hospitality professionals from all portions of the industry. If you would like to participate, please contact John.Hogan@hospitalityeducators.com
