Facebook is one of the world’s most popular social networks and is often seen as one of the most accessible ones, used by every generation. Not only is it great for keeping in touch with friends, it’s also well suited to spreading the word about your holiday home.

To market your holiday home on Facebook, you can either post updates and photos onto your own Facebook profile, or you can set up a dedicated ‘fan page’. You’ll be able to add a page when logged into Facebook. People who are interested in finding out more about your home won’t need to send you a friend request; they can simply become a fan of your page. Find out more about Facebook pages: http://www.facebook.com/pages/create.php

You’ll be able to add a description to your profile so be sure to list your Holiday Lettings quicklink here. Take photos whenever you visit the property and upload these to your profile so they are available for your contacts to see.
