Do You Know what you Don’t Know?
The internet continues to change at the speed of light. And we all know that Google is the leading and foremost search engine used by your guests today! So, knowing what Google wants and giving it to them as part of your online strategy is THE BEST FIRST STEP in achieving high placement in local (red bubbles or carousel), maps, organic, mobile results and paid listings (mobile and desktop).
Did you know that Google tells you what they want from your online presence via published guideline documentation and testing tools? Whether it comes to mobile, speed, usability, SEO, SEM, Rich Snippets, Authorship and Publisher tags, the list goes on! Come to this intensive session, and learn all about what Google wants from your online presence.

ASPIRING INNKEEPER WORKSHOP
There’s much to learn about Innkeeping before you open a bed and breakfast. The Florida Bed and Breakfast Inns Association will be hosting an Aspiring Innkeeper Workshop as a pre-conference activity prior to the 2014 FBBI Conference on Sunday, September 28, 2014 from 9:00 am – 5:00 pm in Orlando, Florida at The Courtyard at Lake Lucerne. You’ll learn the “ins and outs” of starting a bed breakfast from experts, The B&B Team, Peter Scherman and Rick Wolf. You will leave with an understanding of the steps you need in buying or starting a bed and breakfast, acquisition, valuation, financing, staffing, innkeeping and hospitality. An informative and fun day of learning what you need to know before starting a bed and breakfast endeavor!
As an Aspiring Innkeeper you need a clear vision of starting a bed and breakfast as a business and a lifestyle. In this workshop we will address and work with you to understand all aspects of this wonderful and rewarding career. Our goal is to insure that your goals are met as you work through the process. We will work with you to help you decide whether Innkeeping is the right profession for you, personally and financially. Your workshop provides a comprehensive overview of starting a bed and breakfast from Amenities to Zoning.
