Here’s a way to make your vacation home rental memorable by using neon and wallpaper in HomeAwayRva in Richmond, Virginia.
Be the star of the show
People are scrolling through 100s of airbnb listings a day. What makes yours so special, and why should they click through? We know an attention grabbing photo will make them click, and, more often than not, it’s simply a well designed focal point, or the stunning view -- not a blueprint, or the working amenities. People are looking for an experience. But a custom neon sign isn't just a stylish addition to your rental - it can also be a powerful marketing tool. By creating a memorable and recognizable symbol of your brand, you can increase your listing's visibility and attract more potential guests. Plus, a neon sign is a highly shareable and Instagram-worthy feature that can generate free marketing and positive reviews from satisfied guests.
An eye-catching focal point makes your listing pop!
While it’s a must to have a captivating headline and description of your property, nothing has the potential to drive bookings like striking interior and exterior photos. Take that a step further by featuring an eye-catching focal point to make them pop! But why is the interior so important? For starters, it's the first thing your potential guests see when they view your listing. A stylish and well-decorated interior can instantly convey a sense of luxury, comfort, and personality, making your vacation rental more appealing and memorable to potential guests.
Here’s a sophisticated way to use LED neon as a focal point above the fireplace in this Palm Spring vacation rental by StayAtMyWay.
Use your property name to catch their eye
Having your vacation rental’s name rendered in brilliant LED neon and hung on a wall by the door or above the fireplace provides yet another way you can stay in guest’s memories. This applies to all vacay stays, whether a mountain house aptly named “Bear’s Den” or an uptown city studio called Apt 2C.
Give’em something to post about
Okay so attention was grabbed, they booked your place, now it’s time to provide an experience they’ll want to brag about. Social media is your ticket to more bookings, so whether they’re hashtagging, geotagging, or leaving 5 star reviews, you are gaining more exposure and more business. Guests will post fun content from their trip, why not help them get the perfect shot?
Amber Ulmer makes a beautiful example of making the most of her home's focal with this rainbow book case, House Beautiful.
