WHY WORK WITH KAREN?
Well I’m a holiday home owner too and I run my own successful holiday home business in North Yorkshire.
I get your struggles. I’ve had to work through them myself! But I’ve come out the other side and I know how bloomin’ good it feels to be in control of my own profitable business. I want to help get you there too; to run your holiday home as a business.
My ethos is to make every booking count. No point wasting time chasing low value bookings – where’s the profit in that? I’m running a holiday rental as a business afterall!
To do that you need to bring a quality product to the market, one that’s worthy of higher prices. This is where some owners freeze because they think it will cost too much – it doesn’t have to.
I’m a qualified Home Stager so I know a thing or two about how best to present a holiday home on a budget; with a few tweaks here and there and some savvy spending. It worked for me and I can help you achieve the same.
Then market your quality holiday home to the right people in the right way. Get seen online by those who are looking for exactly what your holiday home is offering. As an independent owner you can do this, you just need the confidence to believe in yourself and to put into practice the marketing techniques that I know work. With a bit of techy know-how thrown in too.
There are 4 areas that underpin a profitable holiday home business: Mindset, Money, Makeover and Marketing. Work with me and you’ll suss them all!
I can help you if you’re ready to STAND UP and get your holiday rental business STANDING OUT.
