Let's talk marketing! or advertising!
I did some numbers yesterday for my 2018 taxes and thought let me ask on Houfy..
What is my time worth?
I know Julie wrote an article to list on as many websites as you can.. hmm..
I see these sites with texts like:
- we are committed to providing you
- easy-to-use interface
- ever-growing database
- we will run the advertisement to do this and that..
- list with us for only $225 a year! and get all of this for free!
- we currently have millions of travelers visiting our site
- we can help you make a site for free, and give you those resources for free
- for just $89 you can add this option and you'll get that for free
- our customer service team is always available to help
- we'll extend your listing for free
- "Our Story": we have many degrees and experiences in the business..
- our goal is to become the number one source for vacation properties
- Get our special rate of $75 per year if you sign up for TWO years!
- as we grow in listings, so will the number of travelers that use our site
- that is why you can get started for free and enjoy a low annual subscription rate?
I just need bookings!
What is my time worth Julie?
- How fast are these sites growing?
- What kind of an interface do these sites have? Wordpress or other?
- How much traffic do these sites get?
- What is their marketing plan? How can I see what is happening for my listing?
It seems Houfy is quite open about all of this..
