Tips for successful marketing
How do you turn enquiries into bookings? What are the most popular features? What about the taxes on a holiday home or apartment? Our experts are delighted to help you with these and other questions.
Digital Marketing Manager
The first impression counts - especially for holidaymakers looking for the right holiday accommodation!
Take pictures of all the rooms, making sure you get the right perspective and the best resolution. Outdoor shots of the property and its surroundings are also well received by holidaymakers. Beautiful photos not only improve your chances of success when renting, but also your ranking in search results.
Get more bookings by describing your accommodation in as much detail as possible!
In addition to the property's facilities and location, this should also cover local attractions and activities. If you provide precise and detailed information, your advertisement will perform better in search engines and you will have to deal with fewer queries.
A daily updated availability calendar is the cornerstone of a successful letting business!
Nothing is more disappointing for a guest than to reserve a stay only to find out later that the holiday home was already booked for that period. With our system you can easily keep the availability calendar up to date and synchronise it automatically.
Senior Marketing Manager
Consumer reviews and ratings are more and more important, whether you are buying an electrical appliance, looking for a good doctor or booking a holiday home!
Just three reviews for your holiday home will increase the number of enquiries by up to 28%. This is also because positive reviews make it easier to find your property with search engines and improve your ranking on Ferienhausmiete.de.
