Well sure! I certainly would benefit…if I wanted to do my own advertising…the site name speaks for itself and yes I would go ahead and put my own listing up and just advertise my own airbnb independently and stay booked. I have 0% interest in that. The main goal is to benefit others and find a solution to a minor problem…just like every business out there
The goal is to not bring people OFF Airbnb. The site is not a booking site, and there is 0% plans to pursue that. The goal is to bring your preferred guest back TO your listing. The site is to HELP Airbnb, not compete with them lol. They refuse to implement video posting, so I am willing to do it! In reality, there are other sites for vacation rentals besides Airbnb (VRBO, etc) so of course people actually do go off Airbnb to see about other options.
Where did you find evidence that they are looking at hosting video content? I know about virtual tours (which they still haven’t done), but video content is new to me. Even if they are, they sure are slow to start and it looks like it will not anytime soon. I certainly wouldn’t keep waiting. https://www.digitaltrends.com/home/airbnb-augmented-reality-virtual-reality-news/
Of course!! lol, let me ask you, how do you think any company survives? Does this forum not contain “advertisers” or ads to keep the site going? And your explanation for how Youtube is ran? I did not do the site for “traffic” or get advertisers. This is so niche that I honestly don’t expect tons of traffic besides a few dedicated subscribers that love watching video content. It really is no different than a blog magazine dedicated to recommending unique stays in other cities.
I saw a need for something that Airbnb refuses to offer so I am. Simple as that. If anyone wants to host their video tour on a site dedicated to BNB video tours, you are free to post as you want.
