BedandBreakfast.com and TurnHere Liven up Online Marketing for Inns and B&Bs with Innovative Video Services
New partnership enables properties of all sizes to promote themselves through compelling online video profiles
Austin, TX– BedandBreakfast.com, the leading specialty travel website focused on inns and B&Bs, announced today that it has entered into a partnership with TurnHere, a leading internet video production content, creation, and advertising company, with a worldwide network of filmmakers. As travelers become increasingly appreciative of rich media content, inns and B&Bs are finding that short online video profiles produce an excellent return on investment. BedandBreakfast.com is delighted to offer its member properties the ability to have professionally filmed and edited video profiles for an incredibly affordable price, to assist B&Bs in competing more effectively with larger lodging establishments, and increase both reservations and length of stay.
“We are delighted to help all properties nationwide to use video to promote their businesses, and TurnHere combines affordability with quality professional work,” commented Eric Goldreyer, CEO of BedandBreakfast.com. “TurnHere’s solution costs under $1,000 from start to finish, and the innkeeper retains full unrestricted ownership of the video.”
Patrick Ashton of Ashton’s Bed and Breakfast in New Orleans was one of the first properties to have a video produced by TurnHere and said this about the experience: “Working with TurnHere was great. They came to my property in a few days and took the time to get great shots. The first draft of the video needed a few edits, and they took my feedback and quickly got me a final copy. Overall I loved the experience, thought it was a great value, and am happy to have a video I can post anywhere.” The video of Ashton’s Bed and Breakfast can be seen here.
The Featherbed Railroad, one of California’s most unique B&Bs, also had a video produced by TurnHere. “Getting the video made was as easy as could be. We talked to TurnHere on a Friday, and 10 days later the video had been filmed. We really enjoyed showing the filmmaker around the property, and the final video is just great. We thought it would be much more expensive to create a video of this quality and are happy that BedandBreakfast.com is offering such a high quality product at such an affordable price.” The Featherbed’s video is online here.
The videos produced by TurnHere for BedandBreakfast.com members are about a minute long, a popular length for online viewing. The video can be added to a property’s website, uploaded to YouTube, BedandBreakfast.com, and wherever an innkeeper chooses. The process typically takes only a few weeks from time of scheduling, to a single round of edits, to a finished video, and the total cost is less than $1,000. Properties that wish to schedule a TurnHere video should contact us through our web form; this offer is only available through BedandBreakfast.com.
“TurnHere has long recognized that small, locally owned businesses have a hard time affording big-business quality marketing tools. We designed a product that enables these local providers to get the video content they need by eliminating traditional production costs without sacrificing quality, allowing them to compete with larger lodging properties. We hope to be a part of BedandBreakfast.com’s success in revolutionizing the content in the B&B space and ultimately bringing to life the charm of locally owned inns and B&Bs,” commented Bud Rosenthal, CEO of TurnHere.
