Been live since September but haven’t had any views, any bookings, and obviously no reviews.
I will be honest and open and say that I am very jealous that many of you go live and in about a week or 36 hours–you already had your first booking. I am very interested in how you managed to make that happen.
I live in a very well known tourist area in California so bookings are happening from left to right constantly–daily!
Things I have already done:
-Photos of space
-Summary of space
-Long description of surrounding area, food areas, attractions, driving distances, house rules, parking, amenities provided
-Dropped my price to battle the ‘‘competition’’ (70 for a night and 50 for weekend)
-Added discounts for week and month
What should I start doing? Should I start ads? Where should I promote my listing? I don’t want to venture into to google ads because I heard of a higher percentage charge.
Your help is greatly welcomed.
