The Lodging Resource Newsletter: Issue #18, January 2013

Hello again Lovely Innkeepers!

I hope you all had a great Holiday season and started everything off with a bang! Now is the time to get your tushes in gear and do all the marketing things you know you should be doing……….

On that note, this is important if you have a Facebook Business Page (even if you don’t use or don’t use often it often) “Facebook has implemented changes to its text overlay policy for cover photos and News Feed ads for Pages. Starting today, text is limited to no more than 20 percent of an image’s area.” give it a read and then check your banner image/cover photo:

And a funny for you innkeepers: Personally I thought this was hilarious, but perhaps even more fun if you could change the neighboring hotel/motels WIFI to this?
