Jay William Thanks You For Your Support!

Thank You

Hi, I’m Jay William. First and foremost, I would like to thank God for blessing me with a wonderful family, who have often been my motivation to keep pushing forward, even through the toughest of times.

“The road to success is always under construction.” – Jim Miller

The road to success for me wasn’t an easy street. It was tough, real tough! The
journey was filled with pot holes and detours all along the way.

I still haven’t “arrived.” But then again, I don’t think I have a final destination, except, of course, when I’m dead!

I’ll “ride until I die,” and there is no one else I’d rather have by my side on this
journey of life than my amazing wife.

Thank you for being my rock and for your years of support and thoughts. Thank you for not laughing at my wild and sometimes crazy ideas. Thank you for pretending to listen to me when you really wanted to cover your ears. Thank you, Penny.

When I was first bitten by the entrepreneur bug, I didn’t receive much support
from anyone. In fact, there was a lot of resistance.

I felt alone starting out. It seemed like no one believed in me or my ideas enough to help me get going.

It’s rough not having a cheerleader in your corner, especially in the beginning when you have doubts yourself.

But it didn’t stop me. It made me tougher and forced me to be independent. It
gave me a mission to prove to everyone that they were wrong, and to prove to
myself that I had what it takes to make it.

I do owe a big thank you to my very good friend Jacques Eugene Phillip for believing in me enough to take a risk by financially backing up my first idea when no one else would.

Thank you for putting gas in my tank so I could get started on the road to success.
I have to thank my mom for her crazy love and for being my friend.

Thank you to my father, who instilled in me values of integrity and character.
Last but definitely not least, I want to thank you for reading my blogs and for
sharing in something with me that I am very passionate about.

Thank you for your support.

If you know someone who could use help, let them know about my blog.

They’ll love you for it.

Are Your Vacation Rentals Listings Getting Noticed? 2 Mistakes the “Pros” Teach!

 

vacation rentals marketing tips blog for vacation rental advertising advice

Vacation Rental Marketing Mistakes The “Pros” Teach Owners

 

Hello everyone

 

My name is Jay William and I’m new to the community. I thought the best way to meet other vacation rental owners and professionals would be to contribute. I hope you enjoy the tips. If you have any questions or comments please join in!

 

I have been writing alot about vacation rental marketing and I wanted to share some of my findings with owners.

 

I would hope to share this rental marketing information with you so you’ll be able to beef up your rental advertising efforts and lose less booking opportunities.

 

Here is one mistake I found being taught by vacation rental marketing “pros”

 

 

I recently read a blog about marketing vacation rentals online and I noticed “pros” were showing owners how to improve their vacation rental listing titles and conversion by revamping their ad title for them. The problem I quickly noticed was the titles the ‘pros” recreated for the owners weren’t any better than the owners titles, they included details about the property in the title that have been proven to deter travelers from clicking on rental ads.

 

Mistake # 1. Vacation rental marketing ”pros” are teaching owners it’s OK to post the amount of bedrooms in their vacation rental listings ad title. The ad title is the most important part of your vacation rental listing. It affects your listings optimization and visibility in search engines but ad titles are also the most important element of your listing because if your ad title is weak travelers will not click and pass your listing right by.

 

 

Problems with these rental marketing mistakes

 

1st. you will get very little search engine traffic by using “4 bedrooms” in your add titls.

 

2nd. You narrow down your interested audience.

 

 

 

These type of details can be found in the ad itself once they’ve clicked on your advertisement. You do want them to click on your ad don’t you? Of course you do if the renter never opens your ad then you can’t sell them on your property.

 

Don’t include information details in the title of your vacation rental listing ad. This takes up valuable space in your title for much more important content that can be used to help your listings S.E.O. AND The amount of travelers that actually click on your listing and book with you!

 

 

Mistake # 2. Don’t include words like condo or townhouse in your ad title. A traveler may have misconceptions about your vacation rental because of the lack of information they have about your property. Give your property a much more broader market appeal don’t narrow down your market with your ad titles. A traveler may be interested in renting a vacation home until, well they see the awesome rental property you own. The features of your property may be all they need and want! But, you’ll never know if they never see it!

 

If you would like potential travelers to get all the information about your vacation rental before they eliminate you as an option, then don’t use information details in the title. It can be a turn off for certain guests. Give your vacation rental a fair chance to compete by drawing travelers into your ad to find out more about your property.

4 Worst Vacation Rental Marketing Tips the “Pros” Teach Vacation Rental Owners (Part 1)

Vacation rental marketing blog vacation rental marketing tip advertise rentals

 

A VACATION RENTAL IS NOT A HOTEL!

4 Worst Vacation Rental Marketing Tips the “Pros” Teach Vacation Rental Owners (Part 1)

A vacation rental is not a hotel!

Is a hotel a vacation rental property the same?
Although there are some similarities between a hotel and a vacation rental, they are two worlds apart. Yes, they both offer a place to sleep but the product is completely different.

It’s like the old analogy of comparing apples to oranges when it’s also the same when it comes tomarketing vacation rentals and hotels online. Yes, apples and oranges are both are fruit, they both are edible, they both give your body energy but they taste totally different. If you ask a waitress for an orange and she serves you up an apple, your response will likely be “that’s not what I wanted”. This is the same when trying to advertise a vacation rental like a hotel. Are you being taught to sell your apples like oranges?

I’m always looking for ways to improve our rental owners exposure and home ownership experience. In my research I often find my self troubled when I learn a vacation rental owner is following bad marketing advice. In most of these cases the rental marketing “help” is coming from a so called “advertising guru” or rental marketing company.

Poor holiday home owners blindly use these hotel marketing tips for their rental advertising campaigns. The sad truth is owners end up worse than they did when they started looking for some help. This is a problem for me and very concerning as a professional vacation rental marketing consultant. This bad advertising advice can cause investment home failure for investors and their families. Foreclosures and investment failures affect the vacation rental industry negatively as a whole when investors have trouble making returns on those short term investment properties, its never good for business.

I’m reminded when the recession first hit and the real estate market crashed. Vacation home owners were really struggling during this time and it was “sink or swim” for vacation rental owners. Unfortunately there is still evidence of the casualties in the sea of abandoned rental homes for sale in the real estate market today.

However the rental owners that were clinging onto sound marketing and investment advice are still standing strong today, maybe you’re one of them, if so I’d love to hear your story (leave a comment below).

Many of the investors that failed in their venture were following bad advice and a weak business model. Ask any successful entrepreneur and they’ll tell you marketing is key to any successful business plan, for this very reason you need to heed sound marketing advice to avoid wasted efforts, time, added stress and investment failure.

Being in the business for a long time I have seen and heard it all. What I have observed is in most instances; by the time a vacation home owner starts looking for vacation rental marketing help they are already in the “danger zone” and if their last ditch efforts to market their vacation rental fails they are often left with little resources to change their rental situation ending up in foreclosure or paying their rental fees from their personal funds, which can be an extremely stressful situation.

There are several ways you can incorporate hotel marketing strategies into your vacation rental marketing campaign that will actually work, in fact I explain useful hospitality marketing tips that can be used in your rental marketing effectively in my new book “Vacation Rental Marketing Secrets No One Will Tell You”.

But always remember don’t try to be a dog if you’re a cat.

Tip: Look at the vacation rental marketing advice does it seem logical for a vacation rental owner to apply the promotion suggestions. I recently read an article online telling home owners to pay for awards, certifications and travel memberships that are designed more for hotels. The cost of such resources recommended, were just impractical for the single vacation rental owner, some of the certifications were between $500 to $1000 per year, that’s just crazy!

There are ways to obtain similar effects without the high prices of products designed for hotels. Hotels have a larger income potential therefore those may be easily justifiable, but for you a vacation rental owner? I don’t think so!

If rental owners waist their valuable vacation rental marketing dollars on trinkets and less important wares it comes straight out of their rentals marketing budget. I don’t know about you but I don’t have even a single dollar to waist on marketing that doesn’t produce results.

Tip: Considering whether you should implement a particular vacation rental marketing strategy? Ask yourself if the rental marketing idea is more appropriate for a corporate style hotel or property management business? Is it logical for a small individual rental owner trying to get the most they can with limited budgets? Marketing is not one size fits all, if it looks like it doesn’t fit get don’t even try it on.

Tip: Evaluate the rental marketing source and ask yourself lots of questions.
How many years has the vacation rental marketing firm been helping home owners get bookings. If they don’t have an established history of helping real vacation rental owners, than don’t rely on their “rental marketing advice”.

Tip: Get in touch with other vacation rental owners that can confirm the rental marketing plan is air tight! Verify from multiple sources that the rental marketing has been proven to work by “vacation rental owners” not from an owner of another form of lodging like a hotel or other business. What may work for marketing hotels online, will not always work for vacation rental properties.

Tip: It’s best to rely on brands for advice rather than an individual. A brand is a company a company is an organization of people working toward one goal. Brands spend money on their research and have larger budgets for their marketing experimentation. A company brand is just more reliable, you can go to McDonalds order a meal and you already know what it taste like before you sink your teeth into it.

They’re predictable and the McDonalds brand has spent alot of resources to become reliable to its consumers, there is an entire team that worked together to deliver on your expectations and needs. Sign up for newsletters from brands that are established and predictable. When relying on an individual or freelancer to help you with your marketing poses its risks, In essence you’re putting your vacation rental business’s success in the hands on an individual. remember, people get sick, people have families and people have problems a brand is just more trustworthy and reliable.

Tip: Investigate to tell if the marketing information is being “repackaged” for vacation rental owners. This is an old trick from hotel marketers. Some hotel marketing agencies who market hotels are trying to camouflage their hotel marketing tips as vacation rental marketing tips. This is a big issue they take the marketing material for hotels and change words like hotel to vacation rental and now they have a new audience of people to sell their services, products, reports, e-books or adverting services the problem is you are not a dog you’re a cat.

Vacation Rental Marketing Tips How To Market Vacation Rentals By Owner

Vacation Rental Marketing 

vacation rental marketing tips

Vacation Rental Marketing Tip "Love Thy Renter"

Ok, we know it’s important to have a strong vacation rental marketing campaign in this competitive game of online marketing. But what’s the point of having leads come in from your vacation rental marketing if you let other owners steal them from you.

What are you selling? Are you selling a week’s rental in your vacation rental or are you selling a vacation experience?

A vacation rental home owner needs to picture themselves as being a travel planner not a person who owns a house for rent. A renter is really just a traveler and to be honest, travelers don’t really care too much about your vacation rental home. A traveler cares about their vacation experience. This is why you should act like a travel planner, helping your traveler plan the perfect vacation experience.

Travelers want to know that they’re going to go on vacation and have an amazing time, each travelers definition of amazing is different. It’s your job to understand what the travelers looking for and help them get what they want.

There are very few vacationers who know exactly what they want and or need. there are others who have no clue and are going to need someone to help.
Are you offering help to your travelers?

Alot of vacation rental owners are trying to rush through the rental process and try to get travelers to book as quick as possible.

There’s nothing better than a quick sale where the renter knows exactly what they want and they give you their credit card to book your vacation rental, but they are not the norm.

Travelers will usually ask a number of questions which requires your help before booking. There are many travelers who have never rented a vacation rental before. They will have numerous questions and will not feel comfortable making a booking until their questions are answered, only then will a traveler move forward and book your vacation rental.

They want to know things like what is there to do, what should I expect, what to avoid, and how to make it all happen. Offer suggestions and tips to help them further understand their needs then show them how your vacation rental can meet those needs. This point is crucial; if you help them get answers to their questions you would have helped to move the renter from the research process to the booking zone. Don’t try to close the sale too early without answering their questions and overcoming their objections first.

If you rush travelers into renting your vacation rental you will miss your opportunity. Take your time with your travelers to bring them to the “point of sale”. The vacation rental owner who spends their time to show their renters some “love” will usually get the booking, “love thy renters” treat them like a friend, after-all they are the life line of your rental business. Look at your renter as a friend of yours who is coming into town rather than a stranger you’re trying to get some cash from and you’ll see your rentals climb.

The best part about you implementing this type of customer service for your rental business is that a large majority of owners are not offering this level of service and by you doing so you will make your rental shine above other rental owners causing renters to cling to you.

To be frank I’m quite disgusted on how some homeowners treat renters. In some cases home owners don’t want to be bothered by the renter but yet they want their money and they want it fast. They lose their patience with rental clients if they take a little longer than normal.

Just the other day my good friend contacted me and told me he would be coming into town, so I told him I would find him a vacation rental but all of the properties in our vacation rental marketing programs were already booked. So, I went online and found a property I thought would be suitable for my friend and his family’s vacation. I called the home owner (who will remain anonymous) and just as I told them I was calling about their vacation rental, the owner said I’ll call you back.

I was rudely rushed off the phone so they could click over on the other line to speak with someone else, I assume was more important. Hey, I’m not one to get my feelings easily hurt but I can see how a renter could get extremely annoyed by something like that.

I understand the rental owner may have been busy but the situation should have been handled a lot better. If they didn’t have the time they were better off letting the call go to voicemail. I would’ve left a message and then they couldve contacted me when they had the time to work with me.

To be honest we didn’t book that vacation rental for my friend he booked another property from a homeowner who helped him get exactly what he was looking for and answer all his questions.

Vacation rental owners who do not handle their vacation rental business seriously and give sub-par customer service effect the vacation rental market place as a whole.

There are many places online where you can find complaints from travelers who are warning other travelers not to book a vacation rental because of the low quality customer service they experienced. Vacation rental owners should practice a standard of quality to avoid tight regulations that may be enforced to vacation rental properties in the future, there is already

As vacation rental owners we need to stay on top of our game. The vacation experience begins when the travelers start searching; offer them a great vacation experience.

Be a professional and love your renters! Think of yourself as a travel planner and travelers will plan with you.

These tips will help you make the most out of your vacation rental marketing without spending a single dollar more on your marketing.
