I’ve recently been making a bunch of blog posts about our Swimply and Peerspace progress and I’ve been giving anyone out there tips and tricks to make income the same way. Well its been almost 6 months and some of that work has lead to some recognition from Peerspace.
We have now joined the Peerspace Power Host program. Which gives lots of benefits to start with it helps build an extremely good name for your listing as this achievement adds a special badge to your account and all your listings that signifies this huge achievement, next it also gives you access to priority support completely eliminating support wait time.
Along with this there is also special filters to select for power hosts and there is in general more traffic directed towards our listing. This is especially true as we are now not only the #1 Party rental space in PV but we are also Power Hosts.
These 2 traits combined leads to roughly 5 TIMES more bookings. This is an absolutely momentous increase in traffic to listings and leads to a massive increase of business which is explained with data and other information on the Peerspace website.
We also get access to special events and promotions that Peerspace offers as we are one of their top hosts and are a part of this program. We hope that in the near future we can also join some sort of program like this with swimply as well. Currently though this is a huge achievement for us and I am so glad that I’ve been able to share this journey with you all so far.
On a slightly different note I just wanted to say that I know it has been a long while since I’ve posted about coding. This is of course because I have been focusing on other things like Peerspace and Swimply, but I will be posting more about coding as I am a part of the Cyber patriots team at my school where I learn all about cyber security and system hardening. I will start incorporating this into my regular posts as this coding was what really started my blogging and I think that it is a good thing to reincorporate.
Let me know if this would be something interesting for you guys to read about because it is a great topic that I am interested in sharing with all of you. But that’s all for today’s post thank you all so much for reading!
In my next post I’ll go over the requirements to be a power host specifically and how I recommend attaining some of the harder requirements. After that I will make my first Cyber Patriot. See you all next time!
Hello everyone and welcome back to another blog post! I finished finals a little over a week ago and have been on winter break. Sorry that I haven’t posted I have been busy spending time with family for Christmas and New Years. I hope everyone had a great break. This year I have set a couple of goals, the first of which is to make more blog posts I’m aiming for about 100 posts this year which is about 2 a week and my other goal is to increase our Peerspace and Swimply revenue this year.
Without further ado lets get started! Now normally in the beginning of a new month I would be posting about our total revenue for the prior month. However December quite unsurprisingly was quite slow and we only had 1 event. So instead of focusing on one booking we decided to use this month to advertise our listing and acquire booking for this year.
So we invited all of the people who were potentially going to book events at our house. To come and check out the space and get their questions answered. By doing this we were able to build relationships and trust with many potential guests which helps our business grow and even gets our space prebooked. The reason this is important is because when others come to book it shows them what days have already been booked which of course shows that many people our interested in our space.
Aside from prebooking however it is imperative that you get good reviews on your space because this puts you on the Swimply and Peerspace leaderboards of sorts. An example of this is on Peerspace where our property is ranked #1 for party rentals in Palos Verdes. We have only been doing Peerspace and Swimply for a couple of months and we are already at the top of party rentals because of our reviews and great customer service.
This aforementioned customer service is an extremely important part of any business but especially the service industry. Space rentals are a service that we offer via Swimply and Peerspace and as such we need to have excellent customer service so we actually get bookings.
Finally in terms of advertising I would recommend asking previous guests to share your space information with friends and family who may be interested in booking events. Also placing advertisements in things like this blog for example are a great way to get the word out about your space.
Thank you everyone for tuning into this blog post. Once again I hope you all had a wonderful break and i’ll see you in my next post!
