Frequently asked questions
What areas do you serve?
Our vacation rental home is located at Lake of the Ozarks, MO and we're based out of St. Louis, MO but since our service is entirely virtual, we can work with clients from anywhere in the U.S.
What types of vacation rental businesses do you work with?
We work with single vacation rentals, multi-property vacation rentals and bed & breakfasts. We tailor our digital marketing recommendations and strategy to your unique rental business.
I need help with marketing my property on Airbnb, HomeAway / VRBO & TripAdvisor. Can you help?
Yes, a core part of our business includes Airbnb marketing, VRBO marketing & TripAdvisor marketing. This means we will optimize your listings to help you stand out in the search results, generate more inquiries and increase bookings.
I am fully booked in my area's peak season, but I hardly book anything in the off-season. Can you help with increasing off-season bookings?
Absolutely! We have first-hand experience with this particular challenge and love tackling this one! We can help design a specific strategy to increase off-season inquiries and bookings.
Can you tell me if I'm priced competitively for my area?
Yes, one of our packages includes an in-depth review of market pricing for your area with seasonal recommendations.
How quickly will I see an increase in leads and bookings?
Every vacation rental home has unique challenges and the timing will vary depending on what changes need to be made and what time of year people begin planning their vacations for your area. In some cases, the increases may be seen almost immediately after changes are made and in others, it could be a few months. In either case, once the property listings have been optimized properly, the long-term impact is typically substantial and builds year over year.
I have competitors in my area with nicer vacation homes than mine. Will marketing be able to help?
In many cases, yes! You don't have to be the nicest home in your area to perform well and find the type of vacationer that your home is best suited for. However, in some cases remodeling or redecorating is necessary before investing in marketing services. If this is the case, we will discuss this during your free consultation. We are not in the business to waste anyone's time or money. If our services aren't a fit at the moment, we will be sure to let you know before an investment is made.
I have a hard time keeping up with the constant changes on VRBO, AirBnB & FlipKey. Are you able to help me better utilize these platforms?
YES. Platform training, tips and shortcuts is a package we offer to eliminate (okay, maybe lessen!) the frustrations you're encountering while managing your vacation home(s) on these sites.
I am considering renting my home on Airbnb instead of selling it. Can you help me evaluate if I should rent or sell my home?
Absolutely. We can run an analysis on your market and evaluate the potential your home may have if you decide to rent your home instead of sell it. If we do recommend renting, we can also help you with the set-up of your listing to maximize your rental income.
What areas of digital marketing can you help with outside of the listing site platforms?
If you're looking to take your vacation rental marketing to the next level and set up a marketing plan for direct leads, we can help there too. We have deep digital marketing expertise in search engine optimization (SEO), paid search, email marketing and social media.
