Relaunched 1BB.com Building Vibrant Community and Rewards Program Focused on Bed and Breakfasts, Other Unique Accommodations
While major league hotel and resort booking sites may give a nod to B&Bs and similarly quaint destinations, only a dedicated service can provide the rich detail required by savvy vacationers. Enter 1BB, a site dedicated exclusively to travelers seeking a comfortable stay somewhere other than a roadside hotel or bustling resort. Since its relaunch less than a year ago, 1BB has grown steadily, as the community learns what a valuable service the site offers.
1BB distinguishes itself further with its rewards club; the 1BB Club is free to join, with absolutely no strings attached. Earning points is easy. New members receive 1,000 points right away simply for joining the club. Booking a stay, leaving a review, contributing photos and tips to the onsite community, or referring friends to 1BB are all means of racking of club points, which are redeemable at any time for discounted stays. Travelers can spend 1,000 points to earn a 10% discount or 10,000 points for a free night at any B&B Club Leader property.
The built-in incentive to contribute to the community means that most of the content available on 1BB is user generated. The site’s creators suggest that no one understands the world of B&B accommodations better than property owners and travelers themselves, so it’s only logical to lean on the knowledge of the crowd.
For B&B owners, joining 1BB Club offers an ideal way to catch the attention of travelers looking for memorable and charming experiences. The club is free to join, and 1BB welcomes all types of vacation properties, from the traditional B&B to eco-lodges, cabins, guest houses, country inns and everything in between. Placing a listing is likewise free; the only cost is a modest commission collected on bookings.
Property owners who want to maximize the benefits of 1BB Club membership can upgrade to Club Leader status at any time. Club Leaders enjoy lower commissions on bookings, more prestige and visibility in the community, and ultimately more business.
