Many people searching through Airbnb and other booking platforms rarely go too deep into the results, especially if you are competitively priced. Making sure you are high in the listing results is part of our service – we use our experience to rewrite your copy to tailor it for best results.
There are a number of areas you need to look at to improve your engagement and Voyajoy has the knowledge from years of working with these platforms to put your best foot forward.
Titles and descriptions are important elements for all search algorithms – the methodology used by Google is similar to that used by the booking platforms. How your written descriptions read and what you include in the short title of your listing will have a definite impact on your rankings in the search results of available listings.
Beyond that there are some other elements to include. Being verified will show the platforms you are open to them knowing more about you and that helps with trust. Providing a detailed list of amenities, a House Manual and House Rules will also improve your rating.
Airbnb uses hosting standards as a measure of your trustworthiness and rating of your listing. These include Commitment Rate – calculated by the percentage of actual bookings against reservations you have canceled over a year’s period; Response Rate – how often and quickly you respond to enquiries and requests – important as guests love quick responses (as Airbnb mentions); and your overall rating (your average guest rating score over the past year).
Since Voyajoy has staff responding to your guests 24/7 and in a speedy fashion your Response Rate will be high. We also follow up with past guests to get them to leave a positive review and reply to any problems before they leave and think to complain in a review.
Being added to Wish Lists also has an impact so working in some wording to get people to add you to their future lists also helps.
These are just a handful of the areas Voyajoy covers to get your listing near the top of searches. Please use form below to connect with one of our booking agents to get more information about the Voyajoy services.
Voyajoy works diligently to improve every aspect of your online listing. Two things most influence people when choosing where to stay: reviews and images. While they allow for an occasional poor review – some people are just never pleased – pictures are more accurate and dependable, and they are the one thing you can control.
A successful photo layout will highlight all the elements that are the perfect selling points of your listing. Have a great view? We will capture it. Have interesting décor or appliances? We will make sure they are presented in their best light.
We make sure to get the photographers to do an extensive shoot, so we have a solid selection of images to choose from to give us options for testing as well.
