An important part of sharing your home on Airbnb is writing the ‘Describe Yourself’ section of your listing. By getting this just right, you can help encourage more people to book a stay in your home and live like a local in your own city! Here are Hostmaker’s quick tips of the week to help you get started:
Avoid rewriting your resume
Although people do tend to be interested in what you do for a living (we’re all nosey after all!), it is more important to let people know about you. Let them know if you’re more of a spontaneous traveler, or a careful planner; a beach bum or a ski bunny; a culture vulture or a resort hopper.
Smiling is infectious
Match that smile in your profile picture with what you write! Be friendly, use a few smileys, and help people feel welcomed before they even step in the door 🙂
Make it snappy!
Unlike other areas of your listing – where we’ve said that more most definitely is more! – here, the opposite applies. No more than a paragraph should do perfectly! But if you’re a bit of a chatterbox, you can add more details in your ‘Say Hi to Guests’ section of your personal Airbnb profile.
