Let’s Unite, Join With Us!
Why did you get into the vacation home business? I have two guesses: one, you are passionate about traveling, and two, you wanted a way to earn some income doing something you love.
What you probably didn’t realize was how much control might be taken out of your hands, right?
The partnership between HomeAway and Expedia has left you, rental owners and property managers, voicing your concerns about how big corporations such as these control your business, force you to market your home in certain ways, and take way too much of your earnings.
But what if that’s not it? What if more changes are coming in the future? Changes that leave you with even fewer options to market your property the way you want to?
You’re frustrated. You feel like these big companies don’t understand your needs. You feel like you’ve lost control. You don’t know what the future holds. This is not what you, as a vacation rental owner, had in mind.
But do you know what? It doesn’t have to be that way.
You can take control back and market your property in a way that is right for you. You don’t have to listen to what the big companies tell you to do. You have the power. After all, it’s your business and livelihood, not theirs.
Let’s Get Our Independence Back
What if we, as vacation home owners, decided to take a stand against it?
What if we committed to work together and look out for each other?
What if we committed to voice our opinions when new policies are enacted that harm our businesses or confuse our travelers?
What if we committed to stand up for the rights of vacation rental owners?
What if we committed to advocate for a small business model that allowed us to make decisions based on our own values and needs?
I believe that the power has been given to us through social media, the internet, and less expensive technology to make a shift in the market. I believe if enough people come together for a common issue, their voices can be heard and respected. Let’s unite!
If we decided to work for the good of the vacation rental industry, we could make some positive changes in the way things are run – not only for us, the owners and property managers, and also for those who stay in our vacation homes.
Because that’s who it’s all about, right?
Join the Revolution
I don’t hate these listing sites, but I do hate to see my fellow vacation rental owners being treated with poor service and left without solutions and help for their business.
I want to do everything I can to help every owner/manager become independent and do better for their businesses and travelers.
Because we’re better together.
Let’s start a revolution and take the power back. Will you commit to this groundbreaking vacation rental revolution?
