How SkyRun Competitively Markets Your Vacation Rental
Below are some of the ways we competitively market your vacation rental:
HIGH-QUALITY PROFESSIONAL PHOTOS
VRBO’s research shows that high-quality professional photos are one of the most effective ways to increase bookings. We hire professional photographers to capture the true essence of the majority of our vacation rentals. Professional photos are taken at the right time of day, highlight essential attributes, and may be the deciding factor when choosing between two vacation rentals.
THE PERFECT PRICE
Many large property management companies use computers to automatically price vacation rentals in with thousands of other rentals. We feel this essentially maximizes occupancy rates and the company’s revenue while taking away the owner’s profit. Behind the scenes at SkyRun, we are personally formulating the right price for your vacation rental to maximize your profits. Not only do our knowledgeable locations know the right price point among their markets, SkyRun's sophisticated software provides vital insights to help determine the perfect price. When deciding which property manager to use, ask yourself 'Do you want more renters with another property manager or more profit with SkyRun?
Ever heard the term ‘local touch’? The longer you live somewhere, the more insight you gain on what to do. Because our locations live and operate where your vacation rental is, they know just what guests are seeking out. Whether that may be a ski-in-ski-out location, gourmet kitchens, kid or pet-friendly accommodations, or local restaurants, SkyRun creates a flawless description and even informs what you’ll love and what to be aware of.
Immediate responses turn lookers into bookers. That's why every SkyRun location is equipped with an exclusive guest and owner response system where we communicate with our owners by traditional means of phone and email. But today's guests aren't only using phones and emails, which is why SkyRun integrates 2-way MMS texting to and from our main phone numbers. That way our staff can answer the questions of guests and owners in real time. SkyRun sends and receives over 2,000 texts/day on this system. WOW.

At the end of the day, word-of-mouth referrals, aka reviews, may trump all other marketing tactics. If a guest is on the fence about a vacation rental and reads a glowing guest review, most likely they will book. SkyRun strives to gain as many 5-star reviews as possible. When we come across a negative review, we immediately reach out and do everything in our power to fix the issue. Keeping our guests and owners happy is one of our top priorities.
