How to get more reviews for your marina

Reviews. We all know them, we all check them. Before heading to that new Sushi place downtown, you check to see what the other locals thought of it. Put simply, the better your online reputation is, the easier it is for people to make the decision to give you a try. If a business has more than nine current reviews, they earn 52% more revenue than the average. If a business has more than 25 current reviews, that increases to 108%. (Source: Womply)

Knowing Your Marina's Value in an Age of Institutional Investors

We are at a watershed moment for the marina industry - one which will change the face of marina ownership and management for a generation to come. Marinas have always changed hands as owners round out their careers and decide to move on, but historically that change of ownership has been in the form of single purchases – local owner to local owner. Today, we’re entering into a new era of institutional capital and seeing a rise in investors that purchase marinas as part of a larger portfolio of properties. Sale or no sale, that has ramifications for all of us.
