More landlord signups as new owners load up edinburgh apartments

August 1st, 2009 · No Comments · Uncategorized

The reasons are plentiful as to why it is important for a holiday apartments owner in edinburgh to have as much internet exposure as possible. The more sites promoting an apartment the more potential customers can be reached. There is however one particular area which needs addressed in this area and that is that the majoirty of landlords / holiday apartment owners are not willing to embrace the online booking aspect of the ecommerse world. The typical approach is to enter the same property details across any number of web portals advertising holiday property – the entries usually consist of a number of photographs of the apartment accommpanied by a text description and a fascilities list. The majority then input contact details usually an email address and a telephone number. This is the basic method of attracting what was back in the day a lead – generating leads which will allow a sales call or email communication which would somtimes result in a booking. But what happens if a member of the browsing public want to book the apartment on the website there and then – as you would a flight – a hotel room – a hire car. To suggest a distinct drawback in the holiday apartment industry in this area cannot be understated. Now , imagine you are a landlord – being an enthusiastic property owner you have taken some fabulous photographs of you beautifully kept and presented apartment – you have then scripted a detailed description offering indepth information on apartment loaction facilities and benefits of the apartment accommodation. having done this you then enter this information and have it displayed on the worldwide web through your own web site and a large number of agency portals similar to festival apartments and holiday lettings sites. Ok so far, if you are confident that you have included accurate and detailed information and correctly input the geographical location and taken enough photographs to adequatley display ever feature a viewer may wish to see , why then would a customer want to speak to you directly or drop you an email to be responded to at a later date. Would their desire not then be to book the dates they required in your wonderful apartment there and then. I would argue that online transactions have come full circle from the insecure days of the early internet when security was lax. With the majority of internet users having purchased books – flights – computers – rent a cars and even cars themselves then credit card trasactions over the internet are now a trusted method of payment in any industry.
Why then negate the majority of the benefits of a worldwide 24/7 365 web audience and have a contact only web entry for your wonderful apartment. We at edinburgh festival apartments have had a secure online booking facility attached to our website for a number of years now. It is easy to fill in your availability in our landlord sectionand recieve bookings day and night all year round. In taking advantage of this system and monitoring it religiously – even with the close attention to the calender ensuring double bookings do not occur the process is ironically labour saving. No more missed phone calls or waiting for email responses from potential guest who may have already booked automatically online somewhere else – so strike while the iron is hot and jump ahead of your competitors and give the customers what they want – an apartment for certain dates at a price set by yourself – which is what landlords seem to want anyway.
