  9. 9. Drive Profit<br />Create packages that include discounted lifts with the purchase of a meal.<br />Since the people you are catering to are not on a computer they can’t compare, so why give them the lowest price?<br />Sell you lodging for full price and throw in a few items that cost you nothing to give the appearance of a great package deal.<br />If you don’t get a response your only a text away modify your marketing approach slightly and try again.<br />Ski shop<br />Let them know about ski equipment sales or rentals. See if you name brands want to sponsor the message. Simply put this on the bottom of the text “brought to you by Atomic Skis “<br />Lessons<br />What’s the lesson schedule let everyone know<br />Lodging<br />Once they are at your resort they are going nowhere else. Have them relax at the Spa<br />Dining<br />The locals need a place to eat also advertise to them and remind them that you have fine dining<br />
  10. 10. Internet Vs. Text<br />Much better visibility and can reach millions of viewers instantly<br />When you publish discounts your competitors can see them to beat or match<br />People do not always have access to the internet<br />Emails can contain better graphics and allow more interaction<br />Targeted to people who want the information<br />Competitors do not see what you are offering<br />Cellular clients always have their phone<br />There is no SPAM filter on text messages<br />But the scary difference that very few take into effect is the fact that as soon as the customer is on the internet they are looking at everyone's offers, using booking agents and reading about each destination. This would be perfect for you, but who else posted about your Resort? Which competitor is offering a better deal? And wouldn’t it be so much easier to go through a travel agent?<br />
  11. 11. Challenges of Resort Development and Website Impact<br />Google your Resort do you see any of this feedback?<br />Locals , and unhappy clients are vocal and can hurt your business with online reviews and forums.<br />
