    But this is the real world, and every host will eventually face a problem with a guest's stay.
     
    From a piece of equipment breaking down to another guest making it impossible for everyone to enjoy their stay, challenging situations come up that no one wants to have to deal with.
    But there are some secrets to navigating them that will make everyone involved feel supported.

    We’ll walk you through our 6-step process to deal with challenges that come up with guests while they are staying at your property while communicating with them in a way that makes them feel supported and then creating a system to deal with these situations in the future.

    What Hosts Should Know About the Airbnb 2022 Winter Release

    What Hosts Should Know About the Airbnb 2022 Winter Release

    Airbnb wears two hats in their business, catering to the guests on one side while trying to remain fair and inclusive to the hosts on the other.
    Often, they lean towards updates that are more geared towards guests, and the hosts have taken notice, and many have spoken out.
    And Airbnb has responded with the 2022 Winter Release by focusing the updates on making it easier to become a host and stay a host on Airbnb by offering one-on-one guidance from a Superhost and more ways to get your listings seen, and your money faster.
    On this edition of STR Conversations, Eric and I walk you through each of the updates in the Winter Release, including the upgraded top-to bottom protection for every host on Airbnb through AirCover.
    We’ll share the six new listing categories offering more ways for your listings to stand out, and how new listings will now be featured and for how long. Plus, we’ll take a look at the new retaliatory review protection for hosts and the fast pay option and fees.
    Listen in as we share our opinion of which updates are the most advantageous for hosts, which might be problematic, and which ones will require a bit more time and investigation to determine how they will play out.

    Topics Covered
    Jasper shares an exciting life announcementHow intention and clarity trickle down to your guestsHow the Airbnb 2022 Winter release makes it easier to become a hostThe comprehensive coverage of AirCover for hostsHow Airbnb is adding more transparency into the categories (and introducing new ones)The 3 ways the new categories might complicate thingsThe updated policies on review protectionWhy we recommend every host check their listing to provide more details to your guests to rank better in the search results

    How to Fill Your Airbnbs with Corporate Travelers

    How to Fill Your Airbnbs with Corporate Travelers

    There are advantages to hosting corporate travelers in your short-term rentals. You get high-quality guests. You can offer a number of upsells. And capitalize on referrals and repeat business.
     
    But you may have to level up your game in order to attract these high-paying corporate clients.
     
    So, what amenities do you need to offer business travelers? What level of service do they expect? And how do you market your Airbnbs to the corporate travel niche?
     
    Robertin Nunez is the STR corporate travel specialist behind LivingQuarters.net, a platform that connects short-term rental hosts with business travelers.
     
    With headquarters in Philadelphia and Miami, Robertin owns 100 in-house units and operates 3,200 listings in 12 cities around the world.
     
    On this episode of Get Paid for Your Pad, Robertin joins me to explore what Airbnb hosts can do to attract business travelers and explain how to build relationships with the corporate departments that book travel for employees.
     
    Robertin describes creative ways to identify the business travelers who visit your market and discusses why old school marketing tactics (like fliers and phone calls) are so powerful right now.
     
    Listen in for Robertin’s insight on using OTAs to fill in occupancy gaps and learn how to fill your Airbnbs with high-paying corporate travelers!

Relevant info

The show has lots of relevant info about being a STR host but have to say that the X program is overpriced in my opinion. My daughters college tuition for a year is less than their 90 day program.

CarolynKD ,

Excellent Info on Renting to Film Industry

Very knowledgeable guest. Appreciated all the info Laura gave on 1) how to get noticed by the film industry, 2) how negotiations generally proceed, and 3) what to expect when they actually rent your property. Well done!

zaMcIntyre ,
