Share your listing on your social media networks to gain additional exposure


ODHR - icons.pngThe key to receiving bookings is exposure for your listing - and one free way to get additional, free exposure for your property’s listing is to share it on social media channels such as Facebook, Pinterest, Twitter and Google+. You’ll create buzz around your property and enable your followers to access your listing page directly from your post. Share your listing to social media channels in order to:
  • Gain free exposure for your listing and build awareness of your rental amongst people you trust
  • Give your friends and followers an easy way to access your listing or refer others who may be interested in booking your home
  • Share real-time news about your listing, availability, or any special events that are going on around it
Sharing your listing to social media is easy - just click on the social media icons directly on your listing’s page. Here’s how:
 

1. Click on the social media icons on the top right-hand side of your listing.

The numbers next to the icon will tell you how many times your listing has been shared through that social media channel.

2. Facebook:

Share to Facebook by clicking on the “Share” icon. Facebook will automatically pull in a thumbnail image and description of your listing, and you’ll be able to add an additional comment and post it on your timeline. Once this is done you can then like your listing on Facebook by clicking “like.” People can view your listing on HomeAway just by clicking on your post that will appear in the Facebook newsfeed, so it's an easy way to expose your listing to more prospective renters. You can also ask your friends, family or past travellers to do the same and 'like' and share your listing to maximise its visibility.

3. Pinterest:

Click on the “PinIt” icon to pin your listing on Pinterest. A window will pop out and you can choose the board on which you’d like to pin your rental property. If your boards are public, other Pinterest users can find and pin your property and access your listing directly from it. Using the “Pinit” logo is also a great way to pin other holiday rentals you might be interested in.
