How do I make my listing more competitive?
Building a competitive listing starts with having a clear, accurate description of what guests will get.
Here are a few things you can do to make your listing stand out.
Complete each section of your listing
A complete listing helps guests know what to expect from your space. Make sure you:
- Have up-to-date listing details: Regularly add and update details about what you offer. Check your listing details from time to time to make sure everything’s filled out.
- Describe your space: Make your title and description attractive, detailed, and informative. Clearly explain what makes your space unique, including any amenities you offer, if any spaces are shared, and any rules guests should know.
- Upload high-quality photos: Your photos are the guest’s first impression of your space on the search results page.
- Set expectations: Outline expectations for guests in the Rules section of your listing.
Use your reviews to improve
The quantity and quality of reviews from past guests can impact your search performance. Regularly read your reviews and pay attention to ratings to learn how you can improve your guest’s experience.
Make it easier for guests to book
Respond quickly to messages and booking requests to show guests that you’ll be an attentive, welcoming host.
Set competitive prices
Make sure your price is set to reflect changing demand: it fluctuates throughout the week and the year.
