Consistency & Resort Marketing: A Milestone & A Reminder

divider image for this post

This post has two simple purposes: celebrate a milestone and provide a simple reminder of a frequently forgotten marketing principle. My third, secret purpose is not to wax too philosophical.  Onward.

The Milestone
A few weeks after I started SlopeFillers, I knew I needed a schedule for when I would write posts or, as often happens with blogs, I never would. Ambitiously, and a bit naively for a side project, I decided that I’d publish every weekday except for holidays. I’m proud to announce that today is the 300th consecutive weekday post. It didn’t come easily, but with a lot of early mornings, late nights, and lunchtime typing, I made it happen. May not be anything spectacular, but it’s a fun chance to look back and see what sticking to that goal has accomplished.

The Reminder
Marketing is full of shiny objects, things that can easily distract us from plans and paths that we’ve worked long and hard to develop. This is especially true with the rapid changes in the web marketing landscape and social media. Real results rarely, if ever, come instantly. They require long, consistent effort. A few that come to mind:

  • Earning high Google search rankings through SEO
  • Building and maintaining a solid, valuable database of [potential] customers
  • Developing the brand your resort deserves
  • Creating a loyal, active group of fans on social media

None of these come overnight, and they never will.  So the reminder today is simply this: be consistent in your efforts, stick to your plan, and some day you’ll look back and see just how far you’ve come as I had the pleasure of doing today.  Good luck.

About Gregg & SlopeFillers
I've had more first-time visitors lately, so adding a quick "about" section. I started SlopeFillers in 2010 with the simple goal of sharing great resort marketing strategies. Today I run marketing for resort ecommerce and CRM provider Inntopia, my home mountain is the lovely Nordic Valley, and my favorite marketing campaign remains the Ski Utah TV show that sold me on skiing as a kid in the 90s.
