There are two ways to get more direct bookings: You can either find new customers or get current customers to return. And when you try to recruit brand new guests, you’re competing with the marketing budgets of well-known OTAs like Airbnb. But past guests are much easier to market to and sending an email is free. The question is, what’s the best way to collect our guests’ email addresses?
Arthur Colker is the Founder and CEO at StayFi, the premiere provider of Wi-Fi marketing services for vacation rentals. Founded in 2018, StayFi is on a mission to help short-term rental managers seamlessly collect guest information, build brand awareness and drive more direct bookings.
Arthur also serves as the editor-in-chief of VRM Insider, a content platform for the vacation rental business.
On this episode of Get Paid for Your Pad, Arthur joins me to explain why it’s important to collect guest emails and describes how StayFi can help us build a stable of return customers. He offers suggestions for content to send during and after a guest’s stay, challenging us to provide value and keep customers engaged with our brand. Listen in for insight on how StayFi impacts the guest experience and learn how YOU can benefit from using Arthur’s Wi-Fi marketing tool.
