Most people choose professional short-term rental hosting for the freedom—to work when and where you please, on your own terms. But that freedom is limited somewhat by the necessity of dragging a laptop wherever you go. What if there was a tool that would allow you to manage multiple listings remotely from your smartphone? No laptop necessary?
Erinç Arık is the co-founder of Your Porter, the only mobile-first app for professional Airbnb hosts with multiple listings. Your Porter allows hosts to send automated messages, respond to initial guest inquiries, and assign tasks to teammates—linking all of your listings on a single dashboard. Erinç is also an Airbnb host himself, with six years of experience and 750 reviews.
Today Erinç shares his Airbnb hosting journey, explaining how he went from one to 11 listings in just a year. He discusses how the Your Porter app was born out of a desire to automate his own Airbnb business and its unique messaging, task assignment, and flight tracking features. Erinç also speaks to Your Porter’s ability to merge several accounts to a single dashboard as well as the free Airbnb Rankings Report available to hosts through his site. Listen in for Erinç’s insight around managing your business on-the-go and learn how to get a special GPFYP discount on your first Your Porter subscription!
