Each week, Behind the Stays brings you the stories behind your favorite Airbnbs and the hosts who’ve made them memorable. Meet the military veterans, retired flight attendants, tech entrepreneurs, school teachers, single moms, digital nomads, and real estate investors who have all, in their own unique ways, joined the growing community of short-term rentals. Discover how these hosts — from all over the world — have built chic cabins in the mountains, designed bohemian bungalows on the beach, and erected eclectic off-grid escapes. Behind the Stays is brought to you by Sponstayneous — a carefully-curated newsletter that sends subscribers 150 of the best last-minute deals and upcoming steals on Airbnb twice a week. You can subscribe for free at www.sponstayneous.com. Behind the Stays is hosted by Zach Busekrus (@zboozee) — Co-Founder of Sponstayneous. If you know of an Airbnb host you think we should have on the show, please reach out directly to me at email@example.com and I’d be happy to talk with them.

SEO. Paid Search. Email Marketing.
You know they are the marketing trifecta needed to build your brand and increase direct bookings to your properties...
But, outside of watching a couple of YouTube videos and listening to a few STR podcasts, you haven’t had the time to really understand how Google ranks content or what subject line and preview text combo are the best when sending an email to your list about last-minute availability.
If you’re listening to this podcast, chances are you’re not just any run of the mill STR or vacation rental host — you’re an entrepreneur who wants to see their portfolio of homes and the brand that encompasses grow.
And this week’s podcast sponsor, BuildUp Bookings, can help you do just that.
BuildUp Bookings is the digital marketing team that some of the best players in the game use to scale their businesses.
I had their founder, Conrad O’Connell on Episode 44 of the podcast...and let me tell you — this guys know his stuff! In just the last 12 months, BuildUp Bookings has helped their clients earn over $48 million in direct bookings.
If 90% of your bookings are coming via the Airbnbs and VRBOs of the world, it might be time to audit and augment your direct booking strategy — and Conrad and his team have set up a special landing page for Behind the Stays listeners chock-full of free resources to help you do so.
Head on over to www.BuildUpBookings.com/BTS to learn more. And be sure to request a free marketing strategy session with Conrad and tell him Zach from Behind the Stays sent you his way!
