My Favorite 3 Tools For Managing My Airbnb In this Sharing Economy
These are the 3 tools that I use on a daily or near-daily basis in today’s sharing economy. Honestly, I can’t live without them! My anniversary with Airbnb is exactly a month from now. These 3 tools have streamlined my workflow and gave me lots of free time to enjoy the unique little moments of life. I really hope they can do the same for you.
Sharing Economy Tool #1- Beyond Pricing (BP)
I used to manually log into Airbnb every day to adjust my pricing. That was a time suck. Now, I can adjust my pricing with just a couple of clicks. What is great about this tool is that it maximizes my revenue potential every day.
If you are curious about why I went with Beyond Pricing, then you should check out this blog. Another advantage of using an automated pricing tool is the increased Airbnb SEO score. Airbnb rewards hosts that check their calendars daily by giving those listings a higher placement on their SEO.
Sharing Economy Tool #2 – Automated Check-in/out Messages
I have written about this before! It is an elusive tool that you might miss if you’re not paying attention. What I love about this tool is that it’s completely free!
For your convenience, I drew a shitty box around it ;-).
This little tool allows you to create saved messages. It takes a few minutes to set it up, but once you’re done; you are a few clicks away from automation. I use this tool exclusively for check-in/out instructions.
Pro-tip: make sure your check-in/out messages are detailed and thorough. Visit this blog post for best practices on how to create and host on Airbnb.
Sharing Economy Tool #3 – My Cleaning Crew
I outsource 95% of my cleaning to my cleaning crew. Seriously, I don’t think I could run a successful Airbnb Arbitrage business without their help. Lucky for you, I have written on this subject as well. You can check out this blog post here.
*Note: it takes some trial and error to hire great cleaners. That process will take you more than 5 minutes. I agree with this guy below.
That sums it up!
What about you? What are some of the tools that you can’t live without? Feel free to share it with me.
