As a host no-one who has stayed has written a review. How can I get a star rating??

I am new at hosting and have had no reviews.  Therefore I have no stars.  I can't make someone write a review.  What do I do?

How many bookings have you had? It's not unusual for 25%-50% of guests to skip the review.

 

Try temporarily reducing your rate by maybe 25%. That might sound extreme, but you'll a) get more bookings and b) probably have some happy guests, who will give you happy reviews. After a few positive reviews, adjust your rates back up to where you really want them.

Hi @Janice9 You are right that you cannot make someone write you a review but you can kindly remind them. We send a message to every one of our guests after they've checked out explaining the review process and it's importance. About 90% of our guests have written us a review.
