    Ep 04 2021: Direct Booking 101 – a Quick Start Guide to Getting Going with What You Already Have!

    Imagine what getting started with vacation rental direct booking can do for your business – whether you think of your business as a vacation rental, holiday let, short term rental or serviced accommodation, direct bookings with the right booking engine supporting you to streamline the guest experience can be business life-changing.
    When you shift your focus away from the listing sites, accept that they aren’t on your side and that they will continue to move the goalposts on a whim (algorithm changes, going against your own business policies, rising commissions, changes in T&C’s) all affecting your business and leaving you out of control, and start implementing Direct Booking Strategies consistently you’ll have an entirely different outlook on how the future of your business could look.
    Imagine working from a place of:
    Peace of mind
    Feeling & being in control
    Looking ahead & seeing a full calendar
    Taking informed proactive action ahead of time to fill any calendar gaps
    Operating from a place of knowledge, no more overwhelm or not knowing where to start 
    Seeing & enjoying the results of your committed action
    Well, you have the opportunity to do just that, and a great place to start is with what you already have!
