Here are some Ideas on Packaging your Products
Start by simply aligning your products and services with your favorites
- Let's say you own an inn. You can help sell your mid week nights by partnering with any number of activities on island. Start with your friend's businesses. They will promote you and you will promote them. You can make a simple agreement that includes a protocol for taking reservations and collecting and distributing the payments. Keep it very simple.
- Give your "Package" a fancy name. 'Stay & Play' or 'Mid-Week Getaway' or 'Festival Package' or 'Girls Weekend' and combine services that go together
- Start Small. Decide on one offering and get the word out. Rack Cards, Social Media, Chamber or your destination websites such as Block Island Family Vacation.
- Be Creative. Use incentives such as commissions to motivate others to sell your package. Have a contest for your employees to sell your products. Talk to bartenders and cab drivers and ask them to refer customers. Reward them with an off season package for them or their family to enjoy.
