Airbnb – a platform of profitability

In his book Zero to One, Peter Thiel discusses the notion of unlocked secrets.  Uber unlocked the secret of unused seats in a car.  Airbnb unlocked the secret of unused rooms in a home.  It goes without saying that Airbnb can make even the most casual host some kind of money.

But for those who want to earn real money, and move the Airbnb income from something that simply covers the grocery bill to something that might cover the rent or mortgage, you need to become a Superhost.  Thankfully, you don’t need to buy anything from Airbnb in order to obtain this status, and you could obtain the knowledge by reading a lot of blogs and the old trial-and-error method on your own…or you could learn from someone who has gone before you, obtained and maintained Superhost status, and put together a course on just how to do that.

After taking this course you will:

  • Understand the fundamentals of hosting – not just what Airbnb expects, but what guests expect.

  • Be fully briefed on how to set up your listing, including *must have* professional photography and how to obtain that on spec from Airbnb.

  • Possess an insider strategy to get your place positively reviewed rapidly so that you can start scoring high on Airbnb’s algorithm.

  • Have a basic outline for an info sheet on your property, neighborhood, and city that will wow your guests.

  • Know how to create a turnover process that ensures your place is spotless, which is probably the single most important thing to Airbnb guests.

  • Appreciate the importance of genuine, friendly, and prompt interaction with your guests, before, during, and after their stay.

  • Know what the Superhost metrics are, how to obtain them and how to maintain them.

  • Better manage the calendar and not fall prey to the short term thinking of one-night stays or two-month bookings.

  • Have strategies to manage burnout and the development of an entitlement mentality.

Superhost Matters

Superhost isn’t just a title.  It’s a filter guests can use when checking for listings in a location.  Out of all the hosts on the platform, we are fewer than 10%.  We command higher prices, get better guests, and have special perks from Airbnb not available to the general public.  While it’s a side hustle for many of us, some have gone on to make it not just a sustainable business, but one that has created great wealth.  Find out how to get on that road inside this course!
