“Direct bookings saved me £20k in 2022”

Feb 9, 2023smart marketing, Websites

In this short video, we chat about how many bookings Lizzy gets via Airbnb and how many she gets direct.

Before getting her own book direct website, the majority of Lizzy’s bookings came through Airbnb. She did get some direct bookings from people enquiring via her Instagram page. But as explained in the first post in this blog series, it was all a lot more work for less return. She used to get double bookings – not any more. Lizzy also saves thousands of ££££s in commissions these days.

Continuing with our blog series featuring snippets of the conversation I had with Lizzy from Sweet Donside Cabins and Sweetheart Cottage in Scotland, the amount she has saved is mind-blowing.

This is the third in a blog series about a holiday rentals experience of getting her own direct booking website. The full conversation is around 23 minutes if you want to watch it all.
