#rezzolutions - #citizenMRotterdam New Year's Eve

Lucky me - I won a free stay from +citizenMHotels and selected the Rotterdam hotel.  Am here for FreeNYE and will check out the fireworks over Erasmus Bridge - a mere 2 minute walk from the hotel - to viewing space!!

What is especially fun is that each employee is sporting a Tshirt with #rezzolutions on the back - and a cheeky chic saying on the front.

#rezzolutions - here are 3 I spotted

  • Right bed, right time...with the right person
  • Power Nap yourself to Awesomeness
  • Turn off your phone, turn on your partner
Each cool, fun + insightful.  Each staff member got to select (online) their preference - et voila, that's what each gets to wear.

More NYE at #citizenMRotterdam later....wishing you and yours a 2016 full of adventures and original thinking.

Hotels Use Texting for Guest Service

It makes sense!!  Almost 90% of people with smart phone use texting for their communications.  

This Customer Think article provides a number of examples of guest-hotel and hotel-guest texting for services.

Key Takeaway:
With texting, hotels can make sure their customer service isn’t taking a vacation. Using the right technology, they can boost engagement and grow revenue by contacting customers on a channel they prefer, and also foster loyalty with an intelligent mobile experience that travels with them and anticipates their needs.

Used in conjunction with geo-targeting + predictive requests, personalized smart hotel texting can be a revenue source.

A good finding for all you, who can't let the phone down:

This app is so much fun, it lets you send short messages, songs, even the bark of your dog, you can also  keep them forever or it erase automatically the ones you don't need, and so much to do

Keep the conversation going!!

Hotel Le Parisis Amazing Eiffel Views - Paris Authentique

Hotel Le Parisis Tour Eiffel has launched!! 

A welcome addition to the Parisian hotel scene, the hotel has calm, cool interiors with an art deco vibe.  The decor and ambiance is a tribute to 'City of Lights' Age of Enlightment, leading the world in ideas, arts and culture.

Step outside Hotel Le Parisis, visitors find themselves in the heart of a most vibrant, local neighborhood...street markets, local cafes, fabulous bakeries...the real 'authentique' Paris experience.

The Patio at Hotel Le Parisis - lush wall greenery

What I like best:

  • Views - sparking, twinkling Eiffel Tower at night - lovely Paris rooftops by day
  • Location, location, location - La Motte Picquet Grenelle crossroads - 5 minute stroll to the Eiffel Tower
  • Glass roof atrium 'The Patio' boasts a vegetal wall, cozy corners yet open air feeling - ideal for sipping, chatting
  •  Fast, free WiFi - everywhere - no sign in hassles
  • Quiet, calm of the guestrooms - even facing the active street scene - totally soundproof
  • Showers + rainforest shower heads!!
Did I mention the view!!

You cannot beat this view - from Hotel Le Parisis guestrooms!
Newly re-opened, Hotel Le Parisis is a distinctive boutique hotel gem.

Hotel Mobile Websites great examples

Attracting guests to a hotel is not an easy challenge!

Hoteliers must develop strong strategies to let guests have a better experience as well as easier and even enjoyable when booking.

Usually, mobile bookings are made by persons near the hotel, so it is very important to make it easy to get information, navigate and book in the mobile website.

The following hotel mobile websites are examples of nice responsive designs, simple, tappable, and highly interactive, with strong click to action features.

Give them a look and follow the new wave!

La carte du wifi gratuit à Toulouse

#WiFi gratuit a #Toulouse 

Après la place Saint-Pierre équipée en juillet, les lieux et bâtiments publics où l'on pourra gratuitement utiliser le wifi vont se multiplier à Toulouse l'an prochain.

Petit à petit, le wifi gratuit gagne du terrain dans la Ville rose. Au profit des habitants mais surtout des visiteurs et des touristes qui, via leur smartphone ou ordinateur, peuvent ainsi aisément accéder à l'internet. L'aéroport propose le haut débit depuis 2012. À la gare Matabiau, la SNCF s'y est mise au mois d'avril. La mairie, sous la précédente municipalité, avait ouvert un espace square de Gaulle, entre l'office de tourisme et la rue Lafayette, en 2012. Espace étendu à la place du Capitole fin 2013. Il suffit là, pour accéder au Web 24 heures sur 24, sept jours sur sept, d'aller sur le réseau.

Hotel Paradise Paris - connected, calm + casual

Fast, free WiFi then location are my hotel booking priorities. 

The Hotel Paradise Paris summer offer - a great rate including breakfast - made my hotel choice easy. The hotel is a little gem just down the street from the eclectic Chateau d'Eau area... offbeat neighborhood with lots spirited folks going from cafes to bars to restos.

What I especially liked:

  • WiFi fast, free - with easy access; no complicated codes
  • Chateau d'Eau - non-touristy; many cafes with free wifi
  • Hotel guestroom was design style with thoughtful touches - water, 'green' bathroom amenities
  • Each staff member was smiling, genuinely friendly + nicely polite
Hotel Room - Light, airy with a pleasant surprise A/C

Lots of funky spots to choose from 5 minute walk from the hotel.
Hotel Paradise Paris uses their social media to share playlists ... clearly this hotelier is 'connected' + understand how to create a cool vibe.

A nice discovery - all around.

Writing a Business Plan

Are you an entrepreneur?

Many potential start-up businesses are daunted by the prospect of writing a business plan. But it is not a difficult process - and a good business plan focuses the mind as well as helping to secure finance and support.

The business plan will clarify your business idea and define your long-term objectives. It provides a blueprint for running the business and a series of benchmarks to check your progress against. It is also vital for convincing your bank - and possibly key customers and suppliers - to support you.

How should I structure my business plan?

International Entrepreneurs: Paris Welcomes Your Startup

Some clichés just won't die. +Heather Stimmler-Hall enlightens us!

Do you still think Paris is bad for entrepreneurs and small businesses? That there are no prospering startups or angel investors looking for projects to support? That the young Parisians with big ideas have all left town because of crippling taxes and paperwork? That the French government doesn't promote innovation?
If you still believe these clichés, you haven't been paying attention (or you've only been reading the click-bait "doom and gloom" news sites). Check out this video about why entrepreneurs are now choosing Paris for their startups:

#ThinkLink #Padlet Tools for creatives!

Today I am going to share with you two very interesting tools: ThingLink and Padlet

ThingLink is the leading platform for creating interactive images and videos for web, social, advertising, and educational channels.

With this tool you can select an image or video from the web or your computer and put spots with interesting information, images, videos or links to a specific web location.

Padlet is an Internet application that allows people to express their thoughts on a common topic easily. It works like an online sheet of paper where people can put any content (e.g. images, videos, documents, text) anywhere on the page, together with anyone, from any device. 
Think of it like a multimedia friendly, free-form, real-time wiki.
You just need to double click and add whatever pops in your mind, when you're done share it easily.
Give these tools a try!
