How much will a Houfy listing cost?
After we see activity on our site and inquiries and bookings pick up we will ask members to pay for a monthly fee of $9.99 per listing. (Most probably sometime in 2020 or 2021)
Houfy's Costs/Income structure?
It seems the only fair option to members would be to using a results based system = pay per booking or pay per sale = commission based.
We believe low fixed monthly membership fees similar as to Netflix might work for Houfy. Should the social site start working, advertising opportunities might help to increase income.
Marketing: Houfy will need to build inventory before spending funds on Marketing. Hopefully the inventory can be built quickly in 2019 with the help of destination managers. We will need to see some success before being able to charge members funds. (Houfy costs currently about 50K a year)
In the interest of full transparency, we will share with our members where funds will be spent on.
