Running a campground means being in-the-know about the latest marketing trends, what customers are saying and mentions of your RV park on the World Wide Web. One of the easiest ways to do all of these things is to set up a Google alert for your campground.
Setting up a Google alert is extremely easy and only takes a moment.
Now you will get email alerts when your campground is mentioned on a new web page and you can get these alerts daily, weekly or even in real time. Real time is sometimes the best option, since you will always know right away when your campground is mentioned.
There are plenty of reasons why setting up an alert is a good idea. First of all, it’s free to use and when it comes to marketing, you want to get the most you can without paying a huge fee.
Another reason is that you are fully aware of your guests’ experience at your campground. For instance, if a customer leaves a bad review on RVParkReviews, then you want to address it, and if you have a favorable review on Campendium, you want to be aware of it too so you know what you are doing right.
You are able to not only keep up with marketing trends, but you can also track your own marketing expenditures in your campground accounting system to be in-the-know about where your advertising dollars are paying off.
Last, but not least, if you have a campground blog you are able to get ideas. But more importantly, you’ll also know if someone has plagiarized your blog posts.
Setting up a Google alert makes good sense and it doesn’t take but a moment of your time.
