By Melissa DiGianfilippo Bill Gates once said, "If I was down to my last dollar, I'd spend it on public relations." Smart man. Public relations can be less expensive and far more effective than you might think. Still, the most significant obstacle aside from budget is tickling the fancy of media outlets and your target audience. Without the media, your story is less likely to reach the public. A well-planned and executed PR stunt can generate incredible amounts of interest and elevate your hotel, motel, B&B, or resort to a new level in the minds and hearts of the media, and more importantly, potential guests.

2 Tips to Boost Your Company’s Brand Awareness & Close More Sales By Jennifer Nagy Small businesses, especially those in the startup phase, spend a lot of time focusing on how to increase sales.

By Jennifer Nagy, President of JLNPR Inc. Every company's ultimate goal is financial success (a.k.a. profitability) but many find it difficult to maintain, especially when their business model is based on one-off purchases. Another difficulty in consistently achieving financial profitability is the length of a company's sales cycle. If a company has an average sales cycle that lasts months or even years, it can create long earning gaps in between clients.
