It’s time for #strsharesunday! Today we are sharing Bella Cresta Broken Bow.

We’re gonna hit you with something we’ve never seen before. Right when you go to their instagram, they have post that directs to their YouTube channel, and it’s a full tour of their property. We cannot wait until video is a bigger part of the booking process, but Bella Cresta Broken Bow has kind of done that!

Take some inspiration from them. Video as a medium is hot hot hot right now in social media land, so take advantage of it. Record a video tour of your property and put it out there. You don’t even have to show your face! How awesome would it be if potential guests could really see your property through video this way?

Also… YouTube is free 😉

Well done!

By the way… check out their website too. Their branding is *on point* 😍

We would love to feature YOU, so don’t forget to use #STRShareSunday to get your chance!

Together, Annette & Sarah are the dynamic duo behind the wildly popular podcast Thanks For Visiting, co-creators of the Hosting Business Mastery Method, & seasoned short-term-rental hosts.
