News You Can Use – whether immediately, or kept in mind for a future need, we at PAII are all about sending timely industry information your way!  As you operate your business, you are continually being tugged by social media demands, how to (or whether to) maximize your TripAdvisor presence, to pick a few from this issue. These and virtually all topics that affect your enjoyment of Innkeeping – and your ability to make it profitable – will be explored at our aptly named Innkeeping Conference & Trade Show in just over 2 months!  And, before you leave the comfort of your inn for Austin, check out the How to Network in Person webinar that we’ve included!

Yield Management
Utilizing yield management in regard to your rates can help you increase profit without doing anymore work. How does that sound? Maybe a better question is, how does that work? In this webinar, we will show you how to use basic yield management practices to increase your profit. Some you of you may be doing it without realizing so. Do you have different weekend and midweek rates? Or do you have different rates based on peak season and low season? If you do, then you've already started practicing yield management! This session will dive a bit deeper on other ways you can increase your profit. Are you 90% occupied on weekends throughout the year? Time to raise price! Are you 100% occupied for a local graduation? Time to raise price! These are just a few examples of when you should raise price and let that additional $20, $30, or $50 go straight to the bottom line!
