Join Christopher Matthew Spencer for an in-depth discussion in this video Developing the property summary, part of Making Money with VRBO.
- Let's jump in and start developing a listing.…The great thing is you can pause and return,…and the information you entered will be saved for you.…You don't have to complete the…accommodation listing in one sitting.…The focus in this movie will be the…Property Description Summary.…And there's a lot of folks that don't have the…attention span to read through an entire property listing,…and while you may be very proud of what you're offering,…many renters on VRBO will skim.…Start to develop a strategy around this…by keeping information bite-sized,…rather than having it feel like an essay,…or even worse, a novel.…
On this page you can see the first section,…which is Listing Basics.…I'll be covering sections, not the entire process.…Not everyone needs technical help with VRBO,…so the focus here is getting the content just right,…not so much the way to use the website,…although, both are clearly covered.…Go ahead and click Set Up,…then select Country.…From here, go ahead and fill in the property address.…Most of the information will automatically fill in for you.…
