Consider the Competition
Long before you open a hotel and motel consultants business in your area, it's worthwhile to determine how many competitors you have. Try our link below to find competitors nearby. After following the link, enter your city, state and zip code to get a list of hotel and motel consultants businesses in your area.
Is the local market large enough to support another hotel and motel consultants business? If not, you had better be sure that you are doing things much better than the competition.
Talk to People Who Are Already in the Business
Once you've finished assessing the competion, the next step is to talk to somebody who is already in the business. It's very unlikely that the local competition will talk to you. The last thing they want to do is help you to be a better competitor.
On the other hand, an individual who has a hotel and motel consultants business in a location that is not competitive to you can be a great learning resource for you, once they realize that you are not going to directly compete with them in their community. In fact, they are often very willing to share startup advice with you. Our estimate is that you may have to contact many business owners to find one who is willing to share his wisdom with you.

Reasons to Pursue a Hotel & Motel Consultants Business Acquisition
More than a few experts advise prospective hotel and motel consultants business startup entrepreneurs to pursue an acquisition strategy. But what's so great about a hotel and motel consultants business acquisition?
The availability of acquisition capital should be a major factor in your decision. Investors and lenders have it and you need it. Yet many are hesitant to fund startups, preferring instead to fund business purchases.
At the risk of oversimplification, we think the idea of buying a business to get acquisition capital makes good business sense.
Is Franchising the Right Option?
Speed to market is an essential factor in startup success. Franchise startups dramatically shorten the startup cycle, giving your business a fast track to earnings, profits and growth.
While it's true that franchising has both benefits and drawbacks, our hotel and motel franchise directory will give you the tools you need to evaluate whether a franchised startup is a good fit for you and your goals.
