Join Christopher Matthew Spencer for an in-depth discussion in this video Preparing an area guidebook, part of Making Money with Airbnb.
Airbnb has a handy feature that allows you to suggest…cool local businesses and attractions for your guests.…This can include museums, malls, restaurants,…grocery stores, coffeehouses, and just about any local spot…you feel would be of interest.…When you add these locations to your Guidebook…the guest will be able to see them and print a list…or you can preprint and place courtesy copies…inside the accommodation…so that your guests have a convenient way to read them.…Let me show you the steps for adding these places…to your Guidebook.…
First, hover over the Host menu…and then click Manage Listings.…From here, select the listing.…Go ahead and click Manage Listing and Calendar.…Access the lefthand menu by putting your mouse on it.…Then scroll down.…Click Guidebook.…Go ahead and start adding your favorite places.…Go ahead and be sure and give a category…for the place--in this case, it's Sightseeing.…
And tell your guests why you recommend it.…When you're done, click Save.…Your comments limit it to 200 characters.…Maybe you want to add your favorite restaurant.…
