The Power Of Online Advertising
The internet has distinctly changed the way vacation rentals and villa owners advertise their property on the market. With the possibility of reaching millions of potential customers worldwide at a much cheaper cost than traditional means, vacation rental property owners need to make a bold move in advertising their vacation homes for rent if they want to be on par with the competition.
Our Experience & Suggestions
We’ve been doing business online for five years now and we have both tried and succeeded ( failed a lotta times as well ) at many advertising and marketing methods on the internet.
There are two methods I want to tell you about ( there are lots more but will be discussed in another article ) and that I believe can work in your effort to advertise your villa rental property.
Tip No. 1 For Advertising Vacation Rentals
First of all, nothing beats having your own website. Not just any website—but a website that works. A website that actually generates visitors and paying customers.
No other company is better at assisting small and medium sized business owners than Site Build It! It’s the only company I’ve seen and am using (I’ve researched a lot of companies and have used three other companies ) that has an all in one web-hosting, web promotion and web marketing package.
The support that Site Build It also provides is second to none. But what I like most about it is that a person who knows nothing about websites can make his very own business using SBI!’s extremely easy to use software. Their staff support also goes beyond just building a website and into the other more critical stages of online presence—promotion and marketing.
Having your own website that works to advertise your vacation rental may take time, but it always pays dividends in the end. So if you have an online marketing plan, this should always be on top of the list.
Tip No. 2 For A Advertising Vacation Rental Property
Another way to advertise a villa is by joining a third party reservation company. In this instance, you simply register to join their system.
What you do is provide them with information and pictures of your vacation home. The company then does the job of promoting and marketing your villa online.
The advantage of doing this is that many of these companies are usually already established online and it doesn’t take that long before a reservation is made for your vacation rental property.
One company that does this well is Villa Renters since they have an amazing booking system and great partner support. Check them out here..
If you ask me, it’s best to use both these two methods as part of the way you advertise your vacation home or villa online. One thing that we’ve learned after years of conducting business on the internet is that it’s never a good idea to put all your eggs in one basket.
