Keeping Up in the World of Vacation Property Management
Great Vacation Retreats continues to stay up-to-date with all of the latest and greatest information that is available out there. We hired Guest Hook to rewrite all of our property descriptions and they did an excellent job. We have just entered into a contract with Birdeye who has a phenomenal process for managing guest reviews on multiple platforms (think Airbnb, our site, Tripadvisor, Google, the list goes on and on). We're very excited to get started with them so you will see some changes and more updates as we start using their amazing service.
Linda is attending the Vacation Rental Success Summit in Toronto this May. This is the largest independent conference for Vacation Property Managers and is attended by managers worldwide. Linda and Amy are part of the Inner Circle, a forum started by independent managers and owners worldwide that brainstorms on all things vacation rental. They have a separate meet up at all conferences (including Toronto) and share a wealth of knowledge.
Amy, Keala and Carly will be attending the LiveRez (our software) convention in Phoenix in October. It is a great honor that Linda was personally invited by LiveRez to attend as their guest and she will be teaching a class on Dynamic Pricing at the conference. Well done Linda! This will be our third year and it has been invaluable for us as a company. The brightest minds in the industry show up to help teach all managers how to be awesome. Keala is especially excited as it will be her first trip to the mainland! The Inner Circle also has another brainstorming meet up at this event.
