Airbnb Plus Hosting in Melbourne GPFYP

In today´s episode I talk with Blake, Airbnb host in Melbourne. He appeared on the podcast in October, when we talked about the Airbnb plus application process.

Blake has two listings in Melboune, one regular Airbnb listing and one Airbnb Plus listing. We chat about how Airbnb plus listings differ from regular ones. Blake has a lot less control over what´s being displayed in his plus listing.

The description is almost entirely composed by Airbnb. The order of the photos that are being displayed is also determined by Airbnb. Not by actual employees, but by an algorithm.

As a result, the cover photos for each of the spaces in his listing, such as the bedrooms, the kitchen and the living room, are not the best pictures to show. The way that Airbnb selects the order of the photos seems to be completely random.

There´s also no place to add captions, instead Blake can only select a few characteristics of what´s being showed in the photo.
