Draw holidaymakers to your advert and boost bookings with these simple tips:
- Pick great pictures. Your first photo should be the best as it appears next to your home summary text in the search results page – this picture has the power to draw holidaymakers to your advert. Pictures of unique selling points such as a pool, roof terrace or sea view work well, but keep it relevant to your home: those sea views will look much more appealing if your garden is also in shot.
You don’t have to be a marketing mogul to have a great advert. With just a few simple, regular updates and improvements, you can keep the bookings rolling in all year round.
Has your calendar been updated recently? As a holidaymaker, there’s nothing more frustrating than setting your sights on the ideal holiday let then discovering it’s already booked. It could deter them from enquiring in the future so it’s a good idea to update your calendar every week or so.
