Why the Pearly Grey Team Trip to South Africa Was so Important

Pearly Grey Ocean Club in Tenerife has been a proud supporter of the Ingane Yami Children’s Village in South Africa since 2010. During these past seven years, the resort team and guests have been closely involved in raising funds for this incredible charitable organisation. Over this time there has also been a strong bond formed between the staff at Pearly Grey and the village. It has long been a wish of the resort developers to be able to take the management team out to South Africa to meet the amazing people working at Ingane Yami and the children that stay...

Have you heard of the excellent charity Give us Time yet?

We are very pleased to announce that RDO members have once again proven their charitable mindset and commitment to worthy causes by supporting the excellent Give us Time charity. Throughout the world there are so many people in need and causes that are worthy of attention such as global hunger or the fight for human rights. These issues gain huge amounts of attention with a whole host of different charities aiming to solve these problems. One issue that doesn’t always get the recognition that it deserves though, is that of the stress that hard working military service personnel and their...

Have you heard of the excellent CLC World Charity Holidays programme?

As well as providing amazing holidays, many RDO member resorts are also very generous in terms of their charitable support to a variety of very worthy causes. This often includes large donations within the local community where the resort operates and/or further afield to help some of the most vulnerable groups and individuals in the world. We believe it is very important to give back to both the local community and to globally important causes, and that this should form a fundamental part of any modern, ethical business. This is also something that owners at timeshare resorts have clearly showed that...

Why Ethical Selling is Essential to Your Success

The days of the dodgy salesmen and con artist are definitely numbered as the rules of the game have been completely flipped on their head. In this constantly connected world, consumers are now in the power position when it comes to most, if not all sales transactions. This can be seen everywhere you look. For example increasingly when people go out shopping in a physical store, they will compare the price displayed with prices across the internet simply by checking on their phone. They will then decide based on this whether it is worth buying the product in store or instead...

Why You Must Value Content Creators More

In today’s world it has been increasingly shown that inbound marketing is far more effective at bringing in new guests, and increasing resort profits. This is opposed to pushy outbound marketing, that up until the recent digital revolution was still highly popular. Astonishingly, even as the evidence resoundingly points to the fact that tactics such as cold calling, bulk emails, leaflets and lengthy sales talks are far less useful than inbound marketing strategies involving digital content, many businesses, including timeshare resorts and hotels, are still persevering with  outdated outbound. This is not only a waste of time and money, but...

Digital leadership – getting off the back foot to win online via Gareth Dunlop

Like it or not, the digital revolution is here to stay and is only likely to increase and intensify in the coming months, years and decades. This includes social media, review websites, live video streaming, online influencer marketing, and augmented and virtual reality. Since the beginning of human history, people have had an intrinsic need to communicate and share information because we are inherently social animals. While this feature of humanity has not changed, the internet has dramatically intensified the possibilities for this. Social media sites such as Twitter, Facebook and Instagram have provided an amazing platform in which individuals,...
