    @Donna-Luisa Eversley, today I sat is a old favorite coffee shop where I could log on to my computer and work away. I was hoping my creativity which has been lagging the last couple of weeks would be reignited. I logged on, opened my latest episode of my fictional series and except for a few trips back onto beBee to interact with Bees I couldn't tear myself away from what I was writing. The next thing I know four hours had passed and the shop was closing and they ran me out. Except for when I was attending school I never became so engrossed in writing. beBee really did that. As I wrote I kept thinking of those that have supported this series and how they would react to different events in the story. (sorry I'm not giving anything away but I do hope to publish tomorrow). It is lovely having an appreciative and supportive audience. I would never have released the writing dragon in me if it wasn't for the support and kindness I have found here. I know I commented before, but you were one I thought of and when notifications came across on this post I couldn't resist another comment!

    #2 You can find, just target a less known testimonial, a young promising personality or offer goods or services instead of money.

    Another point is that many sponsored do not put themselves into sponsors' shoes. They don't even try to understand the needs and objectives... This is key to my company: maker both understand each other.

    That would be great for small companies as well or starting like us but it cost so much money that it's almost impossible to find or have someone commited but for companies with a budget it's a great and easy way to be known if the sponsored is acting with a good attitude...

    Finally, some one who talks about Sponsorship marketing. More people and companies should realize it's value as it connects directly to the people's audience if done right.

    #61 Jared, I have thought about this subject myself since reading this post. I have worked with Finance departments in many companies. Most of the time it was budget related but after developing a metrics program for one department I started receiving requests from the Finance area to help them use the application I was building to help them track the financial side of the department (transportation, supply chain). It is a complex system I have to admit. There were so many intricate pieces to the puzzle that had to be considered. As a former Accountant at a military food service operation I can attest to how easily things can go awry if you don't watch the details. It is a difficult business and one I have not wanted to re-enter.

    #35 @Anders Liu-Lindberg I have the same issue with the Environmental Industry and it's not just beBee but all social media. When I try to get them to engage they just don't seem to want to blog about environmental issues. I understand that, especially if they are writing for an Environmental company or a Non-profit. Many do not take well to their staff blogging about the job.

    #54 Sharing helps to gain interaction for sure! I try to share as many articles that I feel others may find relevant even if it's not something that pertains to me. I don't share random stuff, it has to be worthy of reading. For eg, I'm not a techie but if I read a good Tech article I will share it.

    Engaging is how others get to know you obviously. That's how I've met so many new people on beBee, by engaging on their buzzes.

    I find so many people on here who love promoting others, myself included. I want to see beBee kick butt ;-)

    19/10/2016 #54 Jared Wiese
    #53 Thank you for the thoughtful comments, @Lisa Gallagher! I appreciate you taking the time.

    I know there are naysayers out there. That's fine. If it doesn't work for them, they can give up and go elsewhere or try something different. Like posting at different times, as you said.

    One of the other points you mention that I didn't discuss was sharing. I believe each time someone else shares, your content shows up for that new audience in addition to all of your current hives and followers. That could really help a post take off.

    And, certainly, it takes effort to engage - not just by posting something and sitting back. As you said, you have to show interest and interact. That gains followers, they see more of your content, then like, then comment, then share.... that's the theory anyway ;)
    Lisa Gallagher
    19/10/2016 #53 Lisa Gallagher
    #38 @Jared Wiese, I think you made many valid points below. I'm not an expert by any means but from what I've seen of others and even some of my own posts, my viewer rate is much higher and you must at least click on an article to read it. Most of my articles have gotten many more comments and/or likes than on Linkedin. I have a few that didn't do so well but again, they may have been topics that didn't interest many, I could have posted to the wrong hives and I just learned not long ago you can repost your own article to your followers as often as you'd like. Another thing, I've learned it really depends on what time of day someone posts. There was a poster that was put up some time ago that gave you the best times of day to post to beBee, LI, FB etc... I tend to post after midnight which is far from the best time. John's buzz today is a prime example of how many comments a person can receive in less than 24 hours. I also think it depends how often a person comments on others posts, you have to show your interested and get to know others by interacting on their buzzes and last: How many followers. People that are moving here from Linkedin need to remember how long it took them to build their user base (connections) on LI. It took me almost 2 yrs to build almost 800 connections on LI, I'm up over 600 on beBee in just 7 mos. So, beBee wins in my eyes, hands down.

    #48 Anders, I realize you are being sardonic but for the record I did not say that it would "take off". Indeed, I have not made any representation one way or the other, nor taken a position (yet) on engagement on beBee vs LinkedIn.

    I have been working on a rather long and detailed post on the subject for Samantha Bailey's "LI Group Owners, Managers and Moderators (OMMs) [LIGOMM]" group on LinkedIn. As you know Samantha Bailey is highly respected onLinkedInasatop ratedata analyst. And her group is comprised of some serious veterans of the social media wars in general, and of the Groups war on LinkedIn. So the eventual exchange should be interesting.

    Some data collection is involved, some logical and philosophical analysis. Plus the building of a basic bibliography of relevant posts by others on the topic, and opinions from some established analytic experts. As you might expect, it is taking longer to produce than one of my standard slash and burn pieces.

    Anyway, we just recently founded "All Business" whose membership has not exactly grown through the roof at this point.Which I suppose might tell you something in and by itself. And I just wanted to warn you not to expect magic. Cheers!

    #35 Actually, Anders, the title "All Business" means the hive is all business and accepts only native posts about business from real world business people, posted by the original author who is expected to be available to engage with readers about the post. How do I know this? Because I own the hive. And we welcome only posts there that are all business about business. You, my friend, would be welcome. Cheers!

    I have to make a plug here, for trying a Miracle Morning - on Sundays or every day! Visit the #Miracle Morning hive for more! Much of this article relates to the Miracle Morning. Can you figure out which of the 6 Miracle Morning S.A.V.E.R.S. are shown in this post?!

    #3 Hi @Jena Ball! What a beautiful and eloquent comment. So true!
    I can see why you'd love Sundays even more. I think Australian's have a better life/work attitude anyway. I would also extend that to Europeans.

    I applaud you for never fitting well into job descriptions. As Liz Ryan from Forbes might say, work your Human Voiced Resume instead! Sounds like you are doing just that. Check out my buzz on that at https://www.bebee.com/producer/@jaredwiese/career-tips-and-links-an-updating-reference.

    I had heard of the Google pitching too. I LOVE that. There is so much potential in each of us...

    Oddly, I kind of enjoy Sundays because I know that in a few hours folks I am excited to connect and share with will be up and running. In fact, since I work with a lot of people in Australia, they are often willing to connect with me on Sunday itself. That said, I agree about the need for a shift in attitude, but I'd like it to be in the way we approach and reward work. As someone who has never fit well into job descriptions, and have dreams I want to realize along with those of others, I'd like to see employers actively solicit and support the aspirations of their employees. I have a good friend who works for Google and he not only has time to work on his ideas, but is encouraged to "pitch" them to his Google colleagues. If he can get enough folks interested and willing to donate some time, Google will support it. Now that's my idea of collaboration :-)

    So here's to Sundays with friends and family, and finding ways to nurture and celebrate yourself every day of the week. Just imagine what we might accomplish if we worked to empower one another and collaborated instead of competed.
    P.S., Chocolate is also helpful on Sunday nights ;-)

    #2 China was never buying on the scale of collectors in HK, Tokyo, Singapore and even KL. It looked like they were buying as Swatch and LVMH opened up huge shops in prime locations and shipped a huge amount of inventory to China only to realise the Chinese don't buy luxury goods in China because of luxury taxes. The clampdown on corruption was typically cited in the media and pictures of the odd politician wearing a Patek etc, but the biggest sales were non-Chinese collectors like the wacky Dr. Bernard Cheong and the secretive Japanese collector who has the largest collection of A Lange & Sohne in the World. AP have always, and will always continue to do well purely on the wings of their Royal Oak and Offshore line which is hugely popular in Asia, but also they haven't pushed for standalone boutiques in a region where rents are just through the roof. The biggest challenge moving forward will be the Millenials, and hopefully mid-range companies like Glashutte Original, Zenith and GP can innovate enough to attract this new audience.

    #1 @Dean Owen one of Asia's factors is also the corruption war in China. From what I see some independents have a drop of 15-20% on a record year. Which means they are still doing very well. Nobody can explain AP's small drop. It is probably due to the fact production was always lower then demand.
    Despite Apple has become the second biggest watch producer in the World I do not believe smart watches should be the target for Swiss manufactures, at least not for the luxury segment. As you mention, hybrids could be one of the solutions for the medium range segment.
    Your prediction is probably right. Look at the classic cars and top wines business; they have never been so lucrative.
    Dean Owen
    15/09/2016 #1 Dean Owen
    Yes, Asia sales have been hit hard as many embrace smart watches. But this is cyclical. The industry survived the quartz crisis, with a lot of credit due to Nicolas Hayek. Now we are seeing quite a few manufactures making more stainless steel pieces to drop prices. I fear most for the independents whose very survival was due to Asia, in particular Singapore, but the US is picking the slack to a certain extent. We now need to count on people like Jean-Claude Biver to embrace smart watches as he is doing through the Tag Heuer line, creating hybrids perhaps. I predict this will be a great time to pick up some great vintage investment pieces although vintage Daytonas continue to defy the odds.

    The Rise, Fall and Reinvention of the Minibar
    The Rise, Fall and Reinvention of the MinibarMinibars resulted in a 500% increase in room-service sales of alcohol in its inception. Since then, the well may have run dry with the near-universal standard minibar. Loosing out to convenience stores as guests choose cheap over easy, hoteliers...

    Another important point: I see throughout different articles (not only in hospitality) that perception is a key element in our many experiences. Whenever I prepare a business meeting with different parties, I always ask suppliers or consultants to be well prepared and anticipate questions. The other party has to feel comfortable and even think they face the best professional. The focus is to reassure the customer, it is all about perception...

    #10 @Lisa Gallagher Hospitality in Asia is a fantastic experience. I know that labor cost makes the difference, especially when you can have a ratio of 50 to 75% staff/guest. Also the kindness of Asians is key (except in China!!!). But you also can have a fantastic stay in privately owned small hotels across Europe where you feel home.

    #9 I wish they would raise the standards in the US @Stephane Fenner. I've heard that the standards are higher outside of the US . Yes, cheese would stink if it sat out too long ;-) I thought by now many hotels would have Keurigs in the rooms. When chains allow hotels to be individually owned- they run into problems. I guess I need to travel over seas to experience something new! Thanks

    #6 @Lisa Gallagher Cheese is part of the complimentary "gifts". They are linked to the "VIP level" the hotel has put you into. The problem of cheese standing in a room for some time is the smell.... Concerning the Nespresso coffee, I regularly find them in some hotels chains like Mandarin Oriental, Four Seasons or Swissôtel. Also US standards are lower then Europe or Asia for instance: some chains like Hyatt have a different management for USA and rest of the world. Outside the american market, they are perceived as a pretty good chain when in the US they are average (except for some specific properties).

    #4 @Paul Walters There is such a system where when you take out an item for more then a few seconds it is billed. But customers perceive it at cheap. I fully agree minibar are many times way too expensive. On the other hand, some chains give it complimentary (included in the room price, obviously). It is a question of strategy.

    #5 Free minibar at the Shangri-La hotel group? Now that would be nice! I think minibars are great if traveling long distance. If we are driving, I make sure I buy a four pack of wine (yes, I sound cheap). But the last time I stayed at a Marriott hotel they charged me 17.00 for a small glass of Merlot. I can purchase a nice name brand 4 pack for about 10.00. I would love to arrive and find cheese and a Nespresso Machine in my room. I can't resist good cheese. We have utilized minibars on occasion because, well it's right there! I think it would be nice if hotels would at least comp their rewards members with higher points as part of a package if they utilize items in the minibar or put together a package price. I guess it's a catch 22, considering the amount of staff required to stock and check items that were used. Obviously, that's why the prices are jacked way up. Maybe they need to utilize technology and use a ticketing system (like Dean mentioned about Data being sent to inventory).
    Dean Owen
    15/09/2016 #5 Dean Owen
    I like what the Shangri-La hotel group have done with their minibars in the Kerry Hotels, and that is to make everything in the minibar free (chocolates and all). Many of the minibar fridges I come across in Asia are automated in that when something is removed, the data is sent to inventory.

    @Stephane Fenner as a traveller I do like the mini bar, especially when arriving late . However when a beer sometimes equates to the cost of the room I am sometimes tempted to flee from the fridge. A simple scanning device might be the answer where anything 'removed' is recorded and billed on check out. Might save on those tiny bottles of gin being taken out, drunk and refilled with water. Ah, guests love em or hate em you simply cant do without em!!

    #1 @Aurorasa Sima, It all depends on the category. I have always preferred service than vending machines. But I understand a low budget property cannot afford the cost of good service. Then it is all about creativity and find affordable solutions. The final judge is the customer. And a loyal customer is priceless...

    Interesting timeline about the history of mini-bars. I think in low-end hotels some have switched to vending machines on the floors. Maybe it was time to force the players to more innovative solutions. Paying 10 $ for a 1 $ bottle of water was getting old. The concepts you listed (especially Epiphany and Emma) would make me spend and add to a positive image of the hotel.
See all
