Achieving your hosting goals

Want to make your listing stand out from the rest? With quality high-res photos, custom prices, and lots of availability, you can attract potential new guests (and reviews!). Here are some tips and tricks on how to host a successful listing.

Standing out in search results

How do you make your listing attractive to guests? For starters, it helps to have a clear, accurate description of what guests will get—it sets the right expectations. Keep your details up-to-date, let guests know what makes your place unique, and take a variety of high-quality photos (think of photos as your first impression of your space). Here’s a tip for taking photos: Take some time to arrange everything as if you were preparing to welcome your first guest.

Setting up for pricing success

You’re in charge, and can set custom prices, create promotions, or send special offers to attract guests. For example, say you want to send a guest a custom rate: If a potential guest sends you a message before they book, you can send them a special offer within the message thread. They’ll have 24 hours to accept, and if they do, the reservation will automatically be confirmed. If you’d rather not deal with messaging, you can set up Instant Book—guests can book immediately without having to send a reservation request to you for approval.
