10 Ways to Increase Bookings for your Vacation Rental Properties
June 1, 2016
Since the evolution of mankind, man has always found himself in the quest of new surroundings on a temporary or permanent basis. It’s an eternal longing of humans to find peace and joy amidst the hustle and bustle and turmoil’s of a taxing life. The very core of mankind’s existence is linked to nature and its wonderful manifestations and since the time of kings we all have found ourselves in the pursuits of dimensional changes around us. Tourist destinations and spots not only cater to the needs of a wonderful experience but they also go a long way in getting registered in bits and pieces in our memory cells. So as important it is to have an utmost hospitable nature while having guests around it is equally more important to have a perfect platform of exhibition to draw them in. So while designing websites for Vacation Rental Properties or platforms on social media the following things should be properly highlighted.
1.) Picturesque – the visual presentation has always been the biggest recipient in memory cells of the human body so it needs to be the most powerful point in the presentation. Whether it’s the serenity of jungles, the joyfulness of the beaches the visuals of the place have to be very carefully picked up. Vacation homes should always keep after snaps of immediate renovations, the surroundings in the best of weather and climate. This segment of marketing for vacation homes needs the utmost crafting – so it’s advisable to hire professional photographers to add grandeur to
2.) Offers – Man always aims the highest but in his pursuits of epitomize experiences, the instincts of getting a better value for money has never taken a back seat. We all live in the most developed economies the world has ever seen, but purchasing power has not loosened the rationality in making choices. It’s important that the exact packages with the precise cost involved are exhibited. Rental vacation homes should be precise and avoid not highlighting the hidden costs involved. The fear of loosing customers with hidden agendas of costs involved supersedes the fear of losing them by being honest with numbers.
3.) Man is a social animal but the proportionality of his social connection is different for different individuals – most of the vacation home advertisements fail to read the individual minds- their advertisements either target the domain of couples, or family or group of people, individual packages are never highlighted. A huge base of solo travelers are ignored – making an effort to highlight individual packages should always be explored.
4.) Proper and luxurious sanitation is always an important factor that people have in mind. It doesn’t matter if your rest room is the dirtiest in the world; you would always find expectations running up to skies when people are in a vacation. The pictures of your vacation homes should always be inclusive of proper, clean toilets and wash rooms and more precisely in reality as well they should be the same
5.) Safety in places of unknown and unexplored destinations are always on the priority lists of explorers. Most vacation homes are isolated and are at a potential risk of attacks by humans and animals alike. In most cases people fail to emphasize on the safety factor- strength of your staff at your place, CCTV installed or whatever general safety measures adopted should definitely not be missed
6.) Feedback from customers are an integral part of marketing for vacation rental stays. The reviews from customers ‘unknown’ at times becomes an integral deciding factor for the would- be customers. So we all have a scope of using the unknown of “unknown”customers explicitly, however what needs to be kept clear in mind is that we live in a very judgmental world so an all good view will surprisingly not go a long way
7.) Most vacation homes would have isolated and desolate locations. It’s important the routes to travel there are properly exhibited with precise locations of points.
8.) Nothing is more delightful than the sights of mouth ravishing food. Man has always been a slave to his taste buds and an executive cuisine with drink variations offered definitely is a deciding factor for the move
9.) Queries need to be handled by professionals over the phone. From packages to the different twist and tweaks or combos that can be offered need to be handled superficially well. Remember it’s always a great talent to convince someone unknown over the phone – the charisma of your words will do wonders here. The tone of hospitality in your voice cannot mellow down if it’s a no, every uncracked deal is a potential venture for future
10.) Festive season offers should be on the roll a week before they come. We all live in a mixed economy and culture and festivals back in home for some knocks as opportunity for vacations for others at the same time. Things special for the occasions by vacation rental homes should be clearly emphasized on the social media marketing platform
