I posted this in a topic called ‘Creative Sacmmers’ … But this request takes the cake!
I am reaching out to discuss an opportunity with you. My friend and I will be traveling to 5 countries across Europe very shortly and will be filming our journey to post on YouTube. One of the series we will be shooting is “How to AirBNB Your Way Through Europe” and we would like to have your AirBNB be a part of this series. We will take video of your AirBNB and include it in the episode highlighting it and comparing it to some of the AirBNBs from the other cities we are traveling to (Munich, Gimmewald, Interlaken, Vienna, Cinque Terre, Salzburg, Pisa, Rome, and Venice). In addition to the promotion provided through being a part of this series, we can also take high quality images and/or video of your AirBNB for you to use on your listing (on our $5,000+ camera setup). All we ask in return for these services we would normally charge $1,000+ for, is a free stay in your AirBNB from June 20th to June 23rd (yes, our stay would start later today). When we reached out to top tier AirBNBs in other cities, we had many replies of people wanting to be a part of this series, so I do want to let you know that this position is first come first serve. Let me know if you are interested in being a part of this series. We hope to bring all of the AirBNBs taking part in this series many new customers in the coming months and years both through the promotion offered as well as through the high quality photos and video. I understand it is the high season but because our stay is so close and you are still not booked, we hope you will consider this promotional opportunity in order to increase your bookings throughout the future. I look forward to your prompt reply.
