Episode 076 - Why You Must Know Your Marketing & Who You Serve

 

 

 

SHOW NOTES & LESSONS

What are some things that you can do in order to amp up your marketing and build your revenue in a hot market?

01-02) Check the basics, like your photos.  Are they professionally done and is the best one your thumbnail?  Does your headline boast your best feature?  Does it grab your attention and hold it?

03) Floorplans - you can get one on the cheap at fiverr.com and place it in your listings.

04) You want to snap a pic of a Google map and the minutes from your place to the hottest destination near you.  "We're 4 minutes to the university" highlights your location wonderfully!

05) Uh, speaking of location and any other information inside your listing - BE HONEST!  Don't highlight a location where you are NOT or boast amenities that you don't have.  You will only create angry guests that way!

06-07) Hire an interior designer and cover your place with art.  Art on the walls is a must.  Bare walls...

Smart Messaging Using Smartbnb

For an Airbnb host, the ability to send informative messages to guests in a timely manner is an important part of the business. There are many instant messaging apps but one tool that has gained massive popularity among Airbnb owners these days is Smartbnb.

 

The popularity of Smartbnb stems from the ability to save you tremendous amounts of time by automating your messages to your guests.  For example, you may send out a “Welcome" & "How to Check-in” messages the day before a guest’s arrival.  It’s most likely the same message each time and you may even have set up the template inside of Airbnb’s messages.  Now, just link Smartbnb to your Airbnb account and it will send automated messages to your guests at the times you desire. If you want to save your time and enhance the experience of your guests, there is no better messaging tool than Smartbnb.

 

Sending Messages is Time-Consuming But Necessary

Step #1 - Know Yourself

Identify your highest three values for 2020. Focus on these three and only these three this year.

How to Market Your Property on Other Platforms and on Your Own

You cannot relax after listing your property on Airbnb, thinking bookings will happen automatically. Times have changed dramatically and today Airbnb hosts must work hard to earn large numbers of bookings from their guests. There is fierce competition among Airbnb hosts to catch the attention of tourists coming to their cities.  They would do anything to win over their competitors.  In such a scenario, it becomes important to market your property on various platforms including your own.

 

Beautiful Photographs Can Do Wonders

Photographs play a huge role in catching the attention of tourists coming over to your city. Stunning photographs of the interiors and exteriors of the property allow tourists to visualize them living inside during their trip to your property's destination. These photos should be able to weave a story around your property, enticing tourists to book.

Episode 064 - Seven Things You Can Do to Prevent Parties in Your Short Term Rental

 

SHOW NOTES & LESSONS

Here are Seven Things you can do to prevent parties in your Short Term Rental:

 

  • In your listing and in your House Rules, make it very clear that NO PARTIES ARE ALLOWED EVER. Be so clear as to add that those who break the rules will be responsible for any damages, all repairs, all fines, and fees, including but not limited to all legal fees by you and the owner to recover costs, lawsuits, fines, and fees you incurred.

 

  • Use tools like Noise Aware: a noise detector that measures the sound in decibels without infringing on a guests’ privacy. When the level rises above your set amount, you will be notified by text and email.  You should then notify guests by message THROUGH PLATFORM and by a quick phone call right away.  Document everything.

 

  • Party Squasher (please use our affiliate link below) can be purchased on Amazon for the same price as on their website. This device allows you to monitor the number of devices...

What Are Some Other Hosting Platforms (Besides Airbnb)?

When it comes to short term vacation rentals, there may be only one name that comes to your mind and that is Airbnb. There can be no doubt that Airbnb is an excellent hosting platform but it was not the first and many believe it is not the best.  It is, however, one of the largest and most used platforms out there, being used by millions of owners around the world to get bookings for their properties.  However, there are many other hosting platforms that are equally as good if you decide you want to compare or even list your property on more than one platform to get optimal bookings.
