What links to your Owner Direct property page can do for you …
So you have a beautiful vacation home that you would like to rent out (or rent out more often). By signing up with Owner Direct, you made the first step by creating a free listing that gives you access to thousands of potential guests. But did you know that you have also created a mini website for your vacation home that you should share and promote to get even more people to look at your pictures and check your availability?
Once you have a listing on Ownerdirect.com, you can link to your property page from your tweets on Twitter, from your Facebook site, from your emails, from your Google+ account. All you need to do is log into your Owner Direct account, go to your property and copy the URL in the top part of your browser window. It will look similar to this:
Even if you have your own website for your vacation rental, you can easily link to the Owner Direct property page so that visitors can look up the most current availability information.
Another option, especially when you have your own website, is to link directly to your availability calendar. It makes it very convenient for potential guests to check whether your available dates work for them. All you need to do is log into your Owner Direct account, click on “Calendars” in the blue box towards the bottom, and then click on the “Free calendar on your own website” section. It will display your personal link to your availability calendar, which you can then add to your website (or tweets, likes, comments and announcements).
You have the benefit of keeping your availability calendar in one spot but can use other channels to promote your vacation home. Win-win!
