Hi, there! My name is Kellee, and I work at a reputation management start up based in Los Angeles, California. I used to work customer service and trust & safety at Airbnb, so I’m very familiar with the platform
The start up I work for is called Karma, and we help make the sharing economy a safer place by aggregating reviews and feedback that users earn on sharing economy sites such as Airbnb. This is all done to produce a Karma Score - think of it like a credit score for your reputation and behavior in the sharing economy. We also support Ebay, Etsy, DogVacay - among others.
The reason I’m posting in here is that Karma is quite useful to Airbnb hosts, especially when deciding whether or not to accept a reservation from a new guest with no reviews. Airbnb hosts on Karma have requested that prospective guests with no reviews sign up for a Karma account and get a Karma Score so they feel more comfortable allowing that person into their home.
I’d love to answer any questions you may have and also invite you all to join our public beta version of Karma. Simply go to havekarma.com, log in with Facebook or LinkedIn, and be on your way with a Karma Score I’d also like to invite you to email us at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions you have about the site or any thoughts in general.
Feel free to follow us on Facebook and Twitter as well!
Thanks for your time!
