Thinking Like a Guest: Starting an Airbnb 101
When you’re operating a short-term rental business, you’re part of the hospitality business. Just like a luxury hotel, the most successful short-term rentals sell their guests more than just a space to stay – they offer unique experiences.
This is a lot more work than just providing a space and cleaning it up when your guests are done using it, for sure, but it’s also a way to stand out in a crowded market and make a little bit more money per night.
So whether you’re just starting out or well on your way to building a successful short-term rental business, it never hurts to think like a guest and be proactive about offering things that might make staying in your locations a better experience.
