Airbnb has revolutionized the hotel and tourism industry!
Nowadays, people no longer have to pay exorbitant amounts of money to stay at hotels as they can simply find a room or a home and book it online via Airbnb.
However, not every host is getting a good number of bookings or making good money with Airbnb. This is because most hosts usually just put in minimum effort and expect maximum returns.
In this guide, I will tell you the simple things you need to do to make good money with Airbnb. The kind of money that will make you proud to have signed up as a host on Airbnb.
- Spruce up your listing
Before you sign up on Airbnb, you should spruce up your listing. In other words, you should do everything you can to make it more attractive.
So if it needs a new coat of paint, make sure it is painted. If its air conditioner or ceiling fan needs fixing, make sure it is fixed. If you think the bed needs a new mattress and bed sheets, you should buy them.
Think also of adding amenities such as a mini fridge, a two burner cooker, toiletries, and so on and so forth.
When you are done sprucing up your listing, it should look new and difficult to resist. This will increase its chances of getting booked frequently throughout the year.
- Sign up on Airbnb and add as many details as possible about your listing
Once your listing is good to go, it is time to sign up on Airbnb.
The company’s website is easy to use so you should not have any trouble to put up your listing.
However, when writing your place’s profile, you should make sure you are as detailed as possible. You can do this by taking as many pictures of your place as possible and adding them to the profile.
You should also provide directions to your listing, describe its amenities, and list nearby attractions and activities.
Describing your listing thoroughly will increase the likelihood of potential clients choosing your listing over other listings.
- Set the right price
Once you have spruced up your listing and put up a nice profile, you should set the right price.
Airbnb has nice tools to help you determine the right price for your listing based on the average charges in your area, your location, the available amenities, and other factors.
But ultimately, it is up to you to decide what you are going to charge your clients. So make sure your price is just slightly above average.
This will automatically make clients think that your listing is of better quality but also not too overpriced.
As you can see, there are ways you can do things to earn good money as an Airbnb host. The first thing is to make your makeover your listing, the second thing is to create a nice and thorough profile, and the last thing is to set the right price.
By doing these three things, you will increase the likelihood of your listing being booked throughout the year and of clients paying good money to stay in it. This is how to make good money with Airbnb.
