In less than a decade, Airbnb has gone from San Francisco startup to household name. And now more than ever, travelers are favoring the “home-away-from-home” vacation rental option over the more traditional hotel stay.
It’s no surprise, then, that with the growth of Airbnb users (the latest figures stand at 100 million in 191 countries), comes the continued growth of hosts registering on the platform. Presently, there are around 640,000 Airbnb hosts signed up.
Starting out on Airbnb can be mind-boggling, but there is one main reason why so many owners are turning to listing on the platform: Airbnb can bring you bookings – and LOTS of them. Just look at the figures if you need proof. In 2015, the average host earned $7,350 for temporarily renting out their extra space.
We appreciate that not all owners are the same. There is, however, a certain art to making an Airbnb profile and its listings stand out from such a huge crowd, and that’s where we come in. Introducing: The Airbnb Host Guide to Skyrocket Your Bookings.
