    Mysperalta, welcome to the family.

    One of the major tips to get better bookings is by keeping the page score to the maximum level, thus your property would be pushed to the top. Just add all the amenities you have and some really nice photographs, pictures are a big help as it is one of the prime attractions the guests can have. And do not forget to ask all your guests to put up reviews, you will not get the review the first time you ask them as they might get engaged in their own routine, keep reminding them in a polite way.

    Hope this may help you

    Lots of love!

    There one trick i learned of marketing your property link Url. I thought it is a good way of marketing what you are offering directly into your target market. Ilaria do you know how to market this share link in booking.com?

    I find there is limited ways of "attracting" guests with photos and amenities, but I do try to offer the best experience once they get here, offering a bright and clean room and the best breakfast possible.

    Mysperalta, welcome 

    From my side, I keep sharing bookings.com adds of our place on all social media and it helps. They do book through bookings, com and I prefer it that way as they screen clients and I feel safer that way.

    Good luck and I wish you only great success

    Mysperalta, welcome to the family!

    The most important thing is to list all the advantages of an apartment. Guests carefully read the reviews, but they themselves often forget to write them. It is very polite to remind the guest that his feedback is very important for you and future guests.

    I wish you success

    -Ksovreliemma I agree with you, guests forget to leave reviews so I politely remind them how important it is for me, the Studio and future guests....

    Hey there Mr. Khushi,i passed over your property listing and am genuinely agreeing is very appealing. My hosting place is very close to Mt. Kenya and sometimes we receives guests who asks us to suggest for them their next tour destination. Will definitely recommend you should such a situation arise. Trekking with tourists is my passion and i source a lot of information from Nepal.

    Take care!

    Remember us too here in Harare. Our place is very cozy, quiet and views are excellent. Our hospitality is great we just need a chance to host the first guest to taste our great hospitality and fresh air close to the prestigious Sam Levy Village in Harare. A great destination for this coming Easter I tell you. and good value for money too. Also very flexible and always ready to assist our guests in the event we get booked.

    Regards

    "I suspect it had something to do with my being available for 24 hour check-in"

    After great location, check in time is very important. My area is airport area, so even very punctual guests need flexible check in time, because flight delays do happen.

    If you continue with flexible check in time, you will see more guests coming. I always see hosts in my area not receiving the guests because their check in time up to 10pm only. But it's their choice, not everyone like the hassle.

     I have been reading the posts about how to attract guests.I have been working in my guesthouse for the last 5 years and it bacame a challenge for us.We think we are good at it and of course there are season that go down.

    We feel challenged with our guest house located in Santa Marta, Colombia and it is in the historic center,  We tried to give an old touch, a historic view.Guests feels attracted to objects and art; beds, furniture and everything is old, antique.We also trained our staff to learn more about the history of old Santa Marta and guests felt an engage with the place. We know that guests at the begining come for a day and later they extend their stay because they feel cozy.Every week that challege is an exercise among staff, how we attract guests to come to our place; the thing is to get the promotions in Bookings that attract them very much, booking last minut, 3days and 1 free night,booking in ahead, bring us more guests,This topic is so exciting for me, and I have been reading all your post and it has been very interesting, thanks to all for the ideas.

    All right Bangurekiliana , great to know all your tools to receive your first guests:Service, hospitality, location and value for money.I would add knowledge about the routes to go to the icons.Many guests are always looking how to save money, so I made a map where they can take the  city bus to go the most icon place in the region: Parque Tayrona, so they save money instead they a taxi.

    I do not sell water bottles because we are sicks about plastic, we offer the water without charging.We bring 5 gallons bottle and provide them the water.

    Hi M.Syperalta

     

    Welcome to Booking.com

     

    Well, It is a bit of an art to be a good host. If you can give your guests what they are looking for, your property is top notch clean, have information about the area, you are doing a pretty good job. 

    A smile is always appreciated. People never forget happy faces, and best of all, it is free! 

     

    Enjoy your guests :) 

     

    Greetings

    Juancsandoval,

    Hi and I think of how much effort and time you took to train your staff about the history of old Santa Marta. Great job of the host. I love Colombian people and culture.

    As in Colombia, 5 gallons of water are usual in Philippines. You can't drink from the faucet, it's dangerous. We provide plastic bottles of water as well. After our German guest complained :( He was not able to find a 5 gallons in the kitchen, when he was provided by 2 bottles of water as well.

    Someone who was just leaving told me she went to the Nugget Point early morning to view nature at its best. One of the New Zealand icons must-see places. Taken at sunrise. 

    Will add to my listing series of photos. I don't think there is no better way of inspiring people in a quick and powerful way then by sharing imressions of your area. 

    Yes, I do attract a lot of people that love photography and they never regret coming. 

    Enjoy

    Just sent one. This is about 16 kilometres away from us. But a huge point of attraction. Most people staying here go there. One of my guests who left this morning took it. She got up very early to do that!

    There are also seals, big sea birds, and if lucky the rear yellow-eyed penguins. It's all about nature here, like native trees, big ferns and amazing views. 

    Admit, must go outside and do more hiking (walking) since one never gets enough of it. And take my camera, of course :)

    That is a place to be. Wish i can be one kind of a guest to hike in such an attractive site. You deep your feet deep further and start the adventurous mission to search for pearls in the ocean. Do they still exist? haha
