Cleaning & Maintenance Work Orders
I know that MyVR is working on a module for this, but in the meantime, how do other owners handle the tracking and communication of work orders with their cleaning and maintenance staff?
Collecting Additional Guest Information
Does anyone else collect additional guest information when you have a new booking? If so, how do you collect it, and when?
I currently ask for the guest's home address, and the names of the guests staying in the unit. I collect this with HelloSign when I ask them to sign the rental agreement that way. That way I have it before I confirm their reservation.
Do others ask for other info, or collect it in a different way?
Using Word Press for Blogging Within MyVR
Just wondering how many other MyVR users are blogging on a WordPress site that they've linked to their main website menu?
We could be a great resource to each other when we have WordPress blogging related questions
drop in VRBO/HomeAway bookings in 2016
It's only an issue if you are re-directing them WITHIN your listing, OR if you cancel BIN requests and then re-book them. Once they use BIN, I don't give them the option of canceling and re-booking. I tell them after their stay that for their next trip, they can book directly instead of using a booking service.
I do get phone calls to book, or direct bookings using my attached quote that don't include the service fee, but the referral still came from HomeAway/VRBO. You do still get credit for that in your conversion rates if you have the integrated listings.
Anyone else using flipkey find the calendar sync function not working?
Any tips appreciated.
Tips for marketing your property?
I like blogging is very important. It gets your name out to people that are interested in your area or the activities in your community, which is really your target market.
I'm not particularly good at it yet, but I've been working at it for a while. I'm looking forward to the WordPress app addition to MyVR. But for now I linked a subdomain to my website with a WordPress site for that.
