Hey guys, So today I got a pretty big moral boost. My parents own a motel, family owned and operated for the last 10 years. Its right on the coast of TX, and me and my sister grew up living in the motel, and our family has a decent life. Well, now my sister is in med school, and im in the college of business at UTSA. So I started marketing for the motel since my parents are paying for my college and stuff. So I made a website, and drove traffic to it, and I had a form that is sent to my dad from people who are interested in staying at the motel. The form had things like check in date, check out date, etc.. Its been going real good, and my dad emailed me some stats: Our business in July 2010 was $ 49,336.00 July 2011 was $ 80,412.00 Our Occupancy was July 2010 80.77% July 2011 95.48% Avrage Daily Rate was July 2010 $ 78.81. July 2011 $ 108.67 Feels good knowing it was all me that did that. As well as my dad for responding to like 10-20 forms daily from the website. Alot of those forms converted into sales for our business. Overall, it is a 60% increase in sales. And its a better feeling knowing that the future months upcoming will probably have the same increase because the traffic is steady to the website. And the moral boost is today my dad sent me $2,000 for the work I did to my bank account. So as of today, im a college kid 2k richer. Make an idea, follow through, put in the time, and see the results. Good luck everyone.
