Question: How Can You Connect With and Sell to the Innkeeping Community?
Answer: Join PAII as a Vendor Affiliate Member Today
Your business has the products and services innkeepers need to operate, manage, and market their inn successfully.
How do you reach hundreds of B&B and Inns with news and information
about your products and services in an effective, yet economical way?
Become a Vendor Affiliate Member of the Professional Association of Innkeepers International (PAII),
and you'll be able to connect with innkeepers in ways that make solid business sense.
We here at PAII value your commitment to innkeepers, and we are committed to providing value to you,
along with strengthening our business-to-business relationship, and your business-to-customer relationship.
PAII is the association for innkeepers who view innkeeping as a profession. Bed & Breakfasts and Inns are an established segment of the lodging industry, and continually evolving to exceed guest expectations. In the search for the best in products and services for managing the inn and hosting guests, innkeepers rely, in part, on PAII to provide them with information and access to resources. From the direct one-to-one in person opportunities at the Innkeeping Conference & Trade Show, to news and information in our newsletters, magazines and on our website, there are multiple venues to achieve this.
The Vendor Directory pages are among the most visited pages at www.paii.org - and these pages are public, that is, viewable by everyone. Using the Industry Resources tab, viewers will find your descriptive listing which includes links to your website and social media, contact information, and logo. Your future customers – innkeepers, aspiring innkeepers, associations – are not always going to search by business name, or scroll through every description. So, in addition to the alphabetical listing, your business is listed on the Vendor Member Directory by Category.
News You Can Use - PAII's weekly email newsletter keeps members and non-member contacts updated on news, announcements, industry trends, and special offers. It's a must-read for all innkeepers, interim innkeepers, aspiring innkeepers, association leaders, and vendors. (note: Members receive 'full access' to content by active links while non-member readers receive a limited number of active links to content). Your company is featured on a scheduled date in our "Vendor Spotlight". It includes your company information, a link to your site, and you can offer a special promotion exclusive to PAII members. Your company ad is visible to all 6000+ recipients of the newsletter.
InnOvations, the monthly e-magazine, goes to all PAII members and contains industry news and research, current topics and trends, member news, association news, and the 'world of innkeeping'. Readers will get to know you and your business: you have the opportunity to submit educational articles with a byline and credit to be published in the magazine. We welcome your expertise - that's why we offer the opportunity to further connect with and educate innkeepers. Reasonably priced ads will remind innkeepers of your products and services.
PAII broadcasts several webinars every month - 'Webinar Wednesdays'.
As a member, we invite you to present educational webinars to members. In addition to the live broadcast, these webinars are recorded and have very high view rates. The webinar schedule is posted prominently on www.paii.org and in every weekly edition of News You Can Use.
