What Has the Weather Done for You?
What have you thought about the weather in the UK over the last few days? Has summer finally arrived can we relax now knowing we should not see any more snow or ice for at least another 5 months or so?
Well this is a good question and one that is asked quite a lot across the UK not just here in West Midlands or even in sunny Wolverhampton. Think about this, last week it snowed and we had pretty cold temperatures of around 8-9 degrees during the day and now we are basking in 28 degrees what is that all about? And no I am not complaining and I presume neither are the hospitality suppliers and pub owners.
It’s this weather that brings us Brits out of our homes and gives us the spirit to go on holiday in the UK, pop down to the pub or have a meal. I know I have smelt a number of barbecues over the last few days and have spoken with a lot of happy people.
It’s amazing what a few days of sunshine will do let’s hope it stays with us and we have a good summer. So if you are a hospitality provider in the UK have you noticed an upturn in business over the last week? Have people been booking their holidays with you? Has the sunshine given the public inspiration and hope?
I would suggest it has because we have seen sales of our guest supplies soar over the last few days. Hotel soap and shampoo has been flying of the shelves, or is it just that people are taking more showers now due to the hot and sticky weather?
Well let’s just hope for more and I will keep you informed. If you own a hotel or B&B or Guest house I would love to read your comments and thoughts on how the weather affects your business.
Another Blog About Hotel Soap & Supplies
Yes another extremely enthralling blog about hotel supplies. This is quite an interesting subject and one I love to talk about. I play both roles well what I mean by both roles is the supplier and also the customer of a hotel. I think it’s this mix of idea’s, thoughts, wants and needs that enables us to offer the right products at the right price that consumers actually want to use and enjoy.
It’s quite difficult when you run a business to stay objective. What I mean by this is you tend to exude your own thoughts, likes and wants into your business and don’t get me wrong this can be a good thing but also not if you have well how should I put this unconventional tastes, likes and wants.
Let me explain myself more, if I liked bright Pink, Green and purple would I paint my walls at home this colour yes I may. However just because I like it doesn’t mean that the vast majority of Hotel guests would like to have a bright Pink, Green or purple walls. So you simply must cater for the vast majority of customers.
Now this is not always a hard and fast rule and one that could actually become a niche, a good selling point and something which could set you apart. Niches I can think about, women only hotels, hen & stag do only, group only hotel, dog hotel, no children and of course different colour and styles such as medieval, traditional, boutique etc.
So what does all of this have to do with hotel guest supplies? Well if you think about it what you offer your guest will depend on the style you want to offer and of course what the guests themselves will want, need and expect. Remember appealing to the masses is easy to do and will give you access to huge volumes, however appealing to specialist markets is limiting it can be very satisfying and a great source of income.
