As I said in my post, I and many other hosts certainly do have hundreds of previous guests and they are not dormant. It’s a bit smug of you to assume that a host’s former customers aren’t recommending the rental to others. In other words, are ‘dormant’. For many of us, they are not.
You also assume that hosts with only one property aren’t promoting their businesses. There have been times in the past when I’ve only had one rental and it was just as important to promote that.
It sounds to me that you’re not very experienced in this business?
