Promote your B&B on the Internet
Why partner with BBExpo?
Feel our heart beat:
The hardest thing to communicate to you (so that you believe it!) is the driving desire that we have to see you succeed in your business. At the Canadian Bed & Breakfast Expo, we want to help you get bookings by working with you to promote your B&B boldly and effectively on the World Wide Web.
Our number one goal is to match travellers to the perfect Bed & Breakfast. We will present your Bed & Breakfast in the most favourable light possible with lots of pictures and text that you supply. We utilize professional graphic designers so that people visiting BBExpo will be pleased with the presentation. The server that hosts the site runs at lightning speed year round so that visitors to the site will get instant response.
The BBExpo Difference:
We want to keep you as a customer for as long as we are both in business. To that end, we have invented a "Flexible Renewal" plan for renewing your listing. At renewal time, we will send you an invoice. If you are satisfied that BBExpo has performed well and generated inquiries or referrals to your website, then you can pay the full price. But if the return has not been so great, you may select your own renewal price, based on what you think is fair. You can even have a free listing and see if the next year is better.
Constant Innovation and Addition of Features
While one of the competition may boast that they were the first B&B site on the internet, BBExpo has led the crowd in innovation and features designed to help you promote and run your business. Here are some of BBExpo's firsts.
Individual information such as rates, # of bedrooms, type of bathroom and special advertisement, listed on the province or region page. This was implemented when the site launched in 1998.
Individual guestbook provided for your clients to record what a great visit they had with you.
Create your own special getaway packages to give your clients added value when staying with you.
All enquiry forms submitted are available online for you to view.
Uploading your own pictures was available in 2000 when other places advertised that it was not possible to do this.
New page in 2006 dedicated to exposing scams that are targeting B&B owners.
More exciting innovations are in the works, and BBExpo is constantly growing and evolving to serve you better.
