A show of hands...

Who wants to run their own vacation rental business without interference from big corporations who control their policies, calendars, payment schedules, and even your guests?

If you raised your hand, you’re not alone! 

Vacation rental owners everywhere are frantically searching for the answers – how to get more direct bookings! 

You may have been working on this for while… but haven’t seen a lot of traction yet.  

Or you might be completely new to direct booking (or vacation rentals) and want to get started the right way.

Unfortunately, most vacation rental owners haven’t seen many, if ANY results from their marketing attempts. 

No matter who you talk to, it’s a different story, some try but fail to see any progress.  Others get a few direct bookings but aren’t really sure how.  

But most throw in the towel before they really even get started and feel destined to rely on Airbnb, VRBO or property managers for most of their bookings, with fingers crossed that Airbnb, VRBO or Booking.com doesn’t hide their property after one bad review, add more area competition… or suddenly decide to cancel all your bookings! 

It can be very challenging…too challenging. And it’s not getting ANY easier. 

What you need is a system to reach the right guests at the right time.

You will not succeed in booking direct without website traffic - learn which methods you should be using based on your audience, destination and skill set. 

what do I mean by strategy?

My very first job in the vacation rental industry was helping a PM company build a marketing plan.

And nearly every client and student since has the same problem.

They were creating content and emails on the fly.  With little to no idea what to create, how to promote it and how to turn it into bookings.

That’s why I created the Five-Step Booking Roadmap.

A content marketing blueprint so you can work smarter, not harder, create content with purpose that appeals to the right guests who can’t wait to plan their trip to your destination and your vacation rental –  so you can spend more time on hospitality and managing your properties.

The good news is I can offer a solution…a step-by-step process so you understand what’s working now in the vacation rental industry.

Tried and true tactics plus the newest methods to get more of the right guests interested in your property and destination.

not having a process is like baking a cake without a recipe...

The Five-Step Booking Roadmap Group Coaching Gives You The Strategy, The Tools & The Knowledge To Build A Vacation Rental Marketing System That Works!

wait...why should you trust me?

I’m a vacation rental marketing expert and website designer with more than 10 years’ experience in the tourism and vacation rental industry.

I’ve worked with property management companies as well as owners with just one property and they all have the same issue – taking time from running their business for marketing their business. (and to be honest, that’s an issue for all of us solopreneurs). 

In the years I’ve been working in this industry I’ve learned how different it is, but one thing remains the same, the best way to market a vacation rental business is to set up systems and processes using basic marketing tactics.

I LOVE helping vacation rental owners and small property management companies learn strategies to book direct and I will love helping you as well!  

My students rave about my teaching style and my step-by-step video lessons.
