Renting out your apartment on AirBnB can be very profitable. But if you really want to go the extra mile and completely monetize the process, here are a few tips.
Buy a pair of bikes and rent them out to your guests per day. It’s a great way for them to get around and experience the city from an insider’s perspective.
2.BREAKFAST & BEER
Create welcome packages including a six pack of local beer and some breakfast items like; bread, eggs, ham, cheese, jelly and some OJ. When your guests book your listing, email them a confirmation message and ask if they would be interested in purchasing the basket.
3. AIR PORT PICK UP
If you or your friend have a car, ask your guests if they would be interested in airport transportation for a fee. Or contact a car service company and try to work out a deal.
4. AFFILIATE PROGRAMS
Affiliate programs are programs where people get paid for referring business to company’s website. Many tourist attractions have affiliate programs.
In my case I had 4 listings that generated a total of 16 guests a week. I rented each bike for $10 a person day, sold my gift baskets for $40 apiece and arranged to get paid $10 for every trip to the airport I referred to my local car service. I truly treated my Airbnb listing like a business. Not every guest would purchase a service but when they did, I made a little extra money. To your hosting success.
