Host tips to gain more money
In following a good methodology, you will surely gain more customers to rent your place. Here are some host tips to gain more money.
#1 Protect your mattress with a mattress cover encasement.
Protect your mattress is probably my number one HomeSwissHome host tip, probably because not a lot of hosts follow it. Not to get too gross, but think about the fact that a hundred people may sleep in the same bed in your Airbnb over the course of a year.
#2 Respond to every message, even if it’s a “no”
If you fail to respond to messages, you will lose the chance to book with the potential customer. Even if it’s a “no,” simply message them something like, “Thanks for your inquiry. Unfortunately, I’m unable to host you at this time.”
#3 Make check-in easy with a keypad doorknob.
Want to make check-in hassle-free? You NEED to get a keypad doorknob! This makes it effortless because you don’t even have to be there when your guest checks in—you just send them the code, and they can unlock the door by themself.
#4 After your guests check in
Send them a welcome message and ask if there’s anything you can do to make their stay better, little time after their check in. Ask if they have any questions. You can remind them the main stuff they would need to know to enjoy their stay.
#5 Create a guidebook / Do some deals
You can create a guidebook with all infos that your host will need. You can give it to them online and print it to leave it inside your home. You can make some deals with local companies to put their adresses inside your book. win win situation for all: customers, partners and yourself!
For example you can collect the following information:
- Nearest restaurants, grocery stores, and attractions
- Place to rent a scooter or a car
- Sports club around
- Maps for the hikes around
- Manual on how to use the A/C and heating unit
- Details on where to find the extra sheets, toiletries, cleaning supplies, and cooking supplies
- Contact information for the host and their spouse – in case of emergency
