Accidental Bavarian Announces 4th Leavenworthy Award

We wanted to find a way to reward people or businesses who show the true spirit of Leavenworth. We have deemed them "Leavenworthy". It is not an award you can apply for, it must be earned. When we come across people or businesses we think have gone above and beyond, we will list them on our website and provide them with a picture and link they can use on their website to advertise that we consider them Leavenworthy.

Our fourth Leavenworthy award goes to Dream House Suites.

We stayed at Dream House Suites for one night of our last stay. It was a great little suite with a shared balcony where we ate breakfast. The thing that was Leavenworthy was not just the room though, but the service. We were scheduled to get in before the normal check-in time. Even before we got into town the proprietress called us to let us know everything was ready early and we could just go straight to the room when we got to town. Now that's definitely Leavenworthy service.


Green Shopping Bags

Introducing the "I Found It In Leavenworth" bag.

Order your reusable bags from Accidental Bavarian today for the upcoming shopping season. It will continue to advertise Leavenworth and your business after people go back home. We have a variety of types of bags with the familiar gazebo and facades of Front Street and "I Found It In Leavenworth" printed on the side. There is also an option to brand the bag with the name of your store on it. This fits in well with the green themes of the LIFE2 initiative. Please check our Shopping Bags page for pictures, pricing and ordering information.


Using Social Networks to Increase Business

Your business strategy today needs to include your website and social networking.

Why? When people prepare for a trip today, they go to two places: the web and friends. How do they ask their friends for advice today? Facebook and Twitter.

These are not just for kids. We have a friend in her 70's who regularly uses Facebook to find out what to do this weekend with grandkids or to ask what's ripe in the local orchards.

Social networking is really nothing new. The Internet has just made it easier to do.

Social networking is getting other people to take your message to their friends, who take it to their friends. Salespeople have been doing this for years. But it takes a lot of time and energy to pull off. With social networking on the Internet you can send out short bits of information daily to your customers and they don't mind; and they are much more likely to pass that information on to their friends.

If you are a restaurant, there are also sites you can use to get your business seen and rated by your customers.

Talk to us about how to make social networks part of your marketing strategy.
