How to add additional content about the Space

I just set up my host listing and see other listings that have sections to write additional content about the listing that is more than the 500 character allowed listing description. I don't see anywhere in the account to add this info. Example, a listing I see has the Listing Description, then under that, there is "The space" section, "Guest access" section and "Other things to note". I appreciate any advice on how to do this! Thanks in advance!

Well, I figured it out! I didn't see that it was under the Listing Description after you click Edit. Solved my own issue 🙂

@Sandy698  Glad you found it. 

I have a suggestion which you can take or leave. The write-up is very comprehensive, but reads like a real estate ad. Try to make it a bit more personal and market towards the type of guests who you think would be a good fit for your place. Perhaps this is just an investment property for you, not a place you stay yourselves sometimes, but guests tend to be more respectful if they get the impression this is a home the hosts care about, not just some faceless rental with and off-site host.

Thank you so much for the advice! It is a place we stay and care about as well, but is an investment property too. I’ll work on making it read more personal. I really appreciate the feedback!

@Sandy698  So wording in there about it being your vacation home that you love, etc. will be quite appropriate.  

 

Be aware that partiers tend to target new hosts, because they think you're naive, so be really vigilant about vetting guests.

@Lorenzo306 Advertising services is against the terms of the community center. Since you’re paid by Airbnb to be an Ambassador, it’s inappropriate. This is your second post so far (that I’ve seen) doing this. Please stop. If you wish to help fellow hosts, by all means join us and do it for free, on here. 

 

@Stephanie @Nick I do hope we won’t suddenly become inundated with posts from ambassadors trying to grab business. It’s already bad enough with the constant flood of people looking for cohost positions and selling other services. Which begs another question. How do advertising posts even make it through the gate in the first place?

Ah okay! Sorry! I didn't know that since it's an Airbnb program I thought it was not advertising inside the Airbnb community...
