Your new website is designed to generate bookings for your home by getting people to inquire directly with you via phone or email. \You then book them exactly how you book other inquiries that come directly to you. If you need a method to collect credit cards, we recommend getting a PayPal
account (your guests can pay using any credit card), or through Vacation Rent Payment
. Your HomeSite is a lead and booking generator that works with all of your existing procedures.
Will people find my page if they do a Google search for my area?
Your HomeSite is designed to be a beautiful and effective web brochure for your home. We will give you guidance on how to set up a Google My Business for your home, now that you have the required website, and your home will show up on Google Maps on local searches. The best way to promote your website is through people who've booked with you in the past, people who've inquired about your home and didn't book, as well as your network of personal and professional contacts. Using appropriately timed and messaged emails and social media posts is the best way to generate bookings using your HomeSite.
Why is HomeSites better than hiring a web developer to create my own website?
Many second homeowners have invested the several hundreds dollars and dozens of hours to create and maintain their own property website. If one can find the right web developer who is familiar with the vacation rental industry and has all of the tools to integrate the technology of the industry it makes a lot of sense. We created HomeSites because we deliver the turn-key solution to homeowners in ONE DAY, for a fraction of the time and money. Either solution is good - but having your own dedicated website for your property is a game-changer.
