Greetings and Salutations,
In the BnB industry you get to meet loads of people. People from all walks of life. I think it is possible to meet just about every profession. You name it and they have stayed at a BnB somewhere in some place. This is especially true when we have conferences and delegates move into the hinterland for a little adventure in the form of a safari, river cruise or something a little more energetic like a paddle, walk or bike ride. Then there are the reps. Loads of them staying one night and moving on after bacon and eggs.
But then there was one character that came to stay and do business whether I liked it or not. He was slick amid confident. And my guess was that he had managed a sale in every BnB and wherever he stayed. His market was captive. You almost felt obliged to give him an ear. This is especially true if you have a small personal BnB and desire the best for your guests. Well this character sold beds. Beds, beds and more beds. Often reps will not sample any of a BnB products. But in the morning due to his patronage of sleeping in a bed, he would provide a quote for new beds and move off to the next BnB. If he did not have enough time a quote followed and even a phone call. Way to go to get results and sales.
Hasta la vista
The Knait Wrydah.
