ChatGPT X Airbnb? Learn How To Utilize AI in Your STR Business

Hello and welcome to another episode of Thanks for Visiting. Our guest today, Amy Tang, is the founder and CEO of Folio, a platform used by professional hosts to create sleek digital guides that share rental information and local recommendations with guests. 

Before jumping into the hospitality space, she spent five years as a management consultant specializing in data science solutions, building AI-enabled tools for large Fortune 500 companies – so she’s the perfect dual-informed expert for us to learn from on this complicated subject.

We talk to Amy about what AI is and how far it’s come in the last ten years, how we can leverage it while operating STR businesses, recommendation engines and how they can improve guest experience, what AI tools we’re already using (think, dynamic pricing and iMessage), and what the future holds for AI-enabled rentals.Her company, Folio, is filling this gap in the market – modernizing the way professional hosts run their businesses, starting by helping them deliver an exceptional guest experience. Hosts can create digital guides to proactively share information and offer additional services to guests, saving hosts time and making it easy for them to earn additional revenue.

It’s time for #strsharesunday! Today we are sharing Lakeview Lodge NY! 😍

This property is near and dear to our hearts, because the lovely Cherisse is the host. Cherisse is a GO GETTER. She joined our membership when she first opened up her first rental, and she devoured all the content. She showed up to every call, and took full advantage of all the lessons in the course. And now, this is her second property!

This family family property is right on the water and she does an amazing job highlighting everything you can do at her property, and taking you through all the seasons so potential guests know they can visit year round! Her use of color and design is great, and she and puts her personality into her properties. It’s a joy to know her and we know it would be a joy to stay in one of her places!

We’re so proud of how Cherisse got started and took action. We were here for the first property, and we’re continuing to support her in this second one. Go Cherisse!

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