LBBA is constantly researching
advertising programs that will benefit our members. LBBA works closely with the Louisiana Office of Tourism and the Louisiana Travel Association taking advantage of media buy-ins offered to our peers. Examples of this benefit include co-op ads in the Louisiana Attractions Guide, travel expeditions and digital media. Additional cooperative advertising is offered for trade shows and festivals where members of LBBA buy into a booth to showcase their property.
As a member of LBBA your property is featured on www.louisianabandb.com; your listing will feature a full color picture, description of your property, a link to your website and the ability to book online reservations through your reservations account. Members also
have the ability to post specials and packages on the website at no additional cost.
LBBA helps to promote your inn by
offering its members participation in several special marketing programs
throughout the year. Examples of this can include cross marketing
opportunities, cookbooks, coupon redemption, travel writer promotion and more.
LBBA partners with Louisiana Travel
Association (LTA) to monitor and track proposed laws and regulations affecting our members and the tourism industry.
Networking opportunities at the
Annual Conference, Trade Shows and Meetings are a great place to talk with
other B&B owners to network, discuss best practices and offer friendly
advice. LBBA always encourages referrals among members.
LBBA publishes monthly newsletters
directed to members (and sometimes non-members). These newsletters include a message from our President, news and important information from our Association Director, Advocacy and other information which may be of help to you as a member.
LBBA members may opt into the Book
Direct program for $20/month, administered by Odysys, our webhost. Members who participate in this program have an additional advantage of having their property seen by guests who click on the Check Availability button on the website, in addition to their property being listed in the various geographical sections of the state on the website.
Member discounts are offered at all
LBBA events, including the Annual Conference held each year in July.
The Louisiana Bed and Breakfast Association has recommended to each of our member properties that they follow safety guidelines provided by the CDC and the Association of Lodging Professionals. Guest safety and well-being are our top priority in addition to guest comfort. Contact the individual properties for inquiries or to make a reservation. Relax and Innjoy!
