Some of the benefits of MTBBA membership can be calculated in actual dollars. If, on your own, you were to receive the same advertising exposure as MTBBA, you would need to budget around $5000 per year. We have a prominent presence on the Internet with our own site MTBBA.com, along with sites on the more popular electronic B&B guidebooks. There are countless links to our MTBBA site for which we are not charged. MTBBA has entered into a marketing agreement with AllTrips Marketing. AllTrips has become the #1 referrer to the MTBBA web site.
The benefits you can’t put actual dollars on include: the quarterly newsletter of industry, innkeeper and MTBBA news; one voice in legislative issues; licensed, inspected and approved designation; the quality control of an independent inspector; MTBBA/PAII affiliation; the Innkeeper Exchange program with $60 member-to-member rates; exposure and promotion at the Governor’s Conference and regional trade shows; and the MTBBA annual convention with current issues and networking.
Then there is the "priceless" benefit of MTBBA membership…. referrals to and from your fellow MTBBA innkeepers. Referrals to your guest for their next B&B accommodation down the road reflects on you. Your recommendation of a MTBBA B&B can give you comfort in the fact you have sent them to one of the best.
