- Hi, I'm Christopher Matthew Spencer, and welcome to Making Money with VRBO. In this course, I'm gonna walk you through the ins and outs of making money online, showcasing an unused living space that you own or manage. With VRBO, you can easily, safely, and profitably market to millions of travelers, and rent out a spare room, a second home, a boat, a tree house, or perhaps an idle RV parked in your driveway.
The types of spaces you can offer are limitless and diverse, and you can share them with travelers for any amount of time that suits you. Along the way, I'll provide my personal insights into preparing your rental property for usability and guest comfort, identifying the amenities that will impress, staging, and photography, and getting set up and managing your rental on VRBO. Together, we'll go over how to delivery stunning service, cover helpful tips for housekeeping and maintenance, as well as review my suggestions for making your VRBO rental a huge hit.
With the right amount of knowledge and a little bit of effort, you'll be profiting from the sharing economy in no time. Let's get started.
