Getting the maximun from your vacation property.

So you now have a ivacationonline.com property management software website and you have turned you once money pit vacation property, 2nd home, beach front condo, mountain chalet, or ski lodge cabin in to a profit center. So what do you do now? Just sit and let the money roll in? Sure you could do that but if you follow Joe Godar’s marketing plan, you should be buying listing on VRBO, HomeAway and other vacation rental listing websites. They are great websites and get you plenty of inquiries, but they do cost money. They certainly more than pay for themselves but any expense eats in to your bottom line. If you do not have the time to spend on marketing your property yourself they are a absolute necessity. However if you do have time to work on marketing your property there are steps you can take to possibly eliminate a few of your paid listing.

In the next few series of blog posts, we are going to show you a few of the ways to market your property that are low cost or even better, FREE!
Today we are just going to focus on Facebook. If you have not visited the Ivacationonline.com’s Facebook page please do so here and give us a LIKE while you are there. http://www.facebook.com/#!/pages/ivacationonlinecom/295440638931
Facebook will allow you to stay in contact with current customers, past customers, and reach new customers. One of your goals as a vacation property owner is to get your guests to return. Returning guests are easy to work with, take less time to explain the process and do not need to be sold again. On Facebook your existing guests share pictures and links with each other about your home and potentially can bring you new renters. This is great because it costs you nothing to market your rental property.
You can update pictures of your property, announce sales, invite others, it is one great to help you get more and keep more renters.
