"Before starting this Masterclass… I had a plan to use social media to promote my business because I followed your business startup plan but was lacking information to take action properly. Now… I’m more confident that I can do a lot by myself and the course give me the knowledge I needed to know what I need to do. I also feel that I want to put effort into my marketing instead of delegating it entirely. Before the course I was afraid of the unknown and did not want to put the effort because of that. I know I still have to put a lot of effort to get where I want to be but I’m not afraid anymore. I know I will get result using what you have shared in the course. If someone is in the same situation I was, I would highly recommend considering your course."
For the last 10 years I've been working intimately with unique holiday accommodation hosts to help them start-up and increase their guest bookings and profits.
I've not only been teaching it, I've been doing it too, by jointly managing a 5-star boutique hospitality business, running 'Inspired Camping' and sharing best practice and interviews with experts on my podcast.
That's how I know that with the right strategy you can attract new guests and make them repeat customers who send you referrals.
You just need to know what works and how to do it and that's how I can help.
"You don't meet *UNIQUE HOSPITALITY* Experts everyday - but I did. Sarah Riley's knowledge and contact base was GOLDEN... Timing can be KEY, having top level support like this was worth its weight. I could ask direct question and get direct answers. Sarah is still on board with my project KUDHVA. She's a regular go to for us. Having been in the industry since its inception she can quickly drill down your needs. I feel that I got seriously lucky... without her KUDHVA would not have been born. "
"Its really hard to keep up with speed of change in the digital world - advertising, social media and booking trends - but Sarah is constantly updating the resources in the course so you’re always up to speed and don’t have to spend hours trawling for information as it’s already been done for you. Managing budgets is hard when you’re starting up from scratch but I have to say that it was definitely money well spent and continues to be excellent value. I’m very excited about the new app which means I’ll be able to access training from my phone anytime and anywhere – perfect to fill those idle minutes when I’m waiting for our guests to arrive!"
"The Deborah Meaden of glamping! Your insight into the design, operation, branding and marketing of our proposed glamping site in Inverness was invaluable in helping me move forward with confidence... "
"Amazing content! Sarah overdelivers! I feel much more confident to launch our new glamping business after following Sarah's class. We especially appreciated how she always found time to answer all of our questions, leaving us with multiple solutions to consider. Sarah's class makes you rethink your marketing strategies in a new way you never thought of. Being able to connect live with Sarah and other business owners makes it motivating to get through the class faster. Glad we invested in this course."

"Sarah Riley was an absolute lifeline for us. Her e-learning course was our first discovery, which saved us hours of time of research and £100’s of pounds of potential wasted money by taking decisions that would have been uneducated. There is no other resource out there of this quality in the glamping sector - other than Sarah Riley herself! After purchasing the e-learning course, it was an easy decision to retain the services of Sarah as a consultant. "
