How to ask for listing critique on the Community Center

Hi everyone,

 

Welcome to the New to hosting board and I hope you’ve been finding lots of useful information, insights and advice from our community. One of the amazing things about this space is that those starting out on their Hosting journey can get a keen eye on their listing to work out those little niggles and considerations they may not have thought of just yet. We’re more than happy for you to share your listing for this purpose - here’s a guide on how you can do it in a way that makes it easier for your community to find and offer critique:

 

  • Name your topic “Critique my listing - (your name and where you’re from)” for example “Critique my listing - Stephanie in London, UK”.
  • Include your favourite listing picture in the post. This makes the topic stand out more, gives viewers a sense of the type of listing you offer and means your Community Management team can more easily highlight it to the rest of the community.
  • Share something about what your trouble might be at this point in your journey. This might be a lack of bookings, missing house rules, or even your custom URL.
  • Finally, post a link to your listing and add the tag on the thread “listing critique” and anything else you think is suitable, like the example below:

You can always ask any of your Community Management team myself, Quincy, Nick and Liv if you need help. And you can share a link to your Critique my listing topic in the comments section below too!

 

What’s your biggest worry with your listing at this point in your journey that you want help with?

 

Thanks,

 

Stephanie

@Stephanie : It looks like many are misunderstanding your instructions, and asking for critiquebin this thread, instead of starting their own thread. Gillian is doing a good job trying to help them. But maybe you could edit your post, to make it even more clear that every host wanting critique, should start their own thread?

I would love someone to critique my listing.  I think you do so by posting to this conversation. I’m new and also learning as I go.  https://abnb.me/m9LX34KLpub

@Stacy363  the post at the top literally tells you how to go about this. you want to start your own thread so that you get all the comments in one place, as this thread here will end up messy.

Hi,

I am new to hosting and was suggested to ask the community to review and provide comments on my listing.  I had one booking but nothing has come in.  Please help.  Thanks.

 

My listing is below for your review and comment.

Hello Air B&B community.  This is my first month on this great journey. I've already had 4 guest stay, but would love some "Critique my place, Joshua Kronske, Bozeman, MT ". Thank you, in advance!

@Joshua841  it's usually better to start your own thread, so all the responses stay on topic and relevant to your listing.

@Leanne260  your place looks amazing, and would benefit from professional photography because gah! look at it, it's such a dreamy authentic rural French experience. 😍 I've bookmarked you for a time when we dare venture to Europe for a safe vacation.

Hi I’m Virginia674  

Please critique my listing. “Studio Apartment in Oyster Creek/ Freeport TX”. We are brand new to Air BnB. My property is a 12 unit apartment located very close to the chemical plants in Lake Jackson TX. Our target market is contractors in town on temporary work assignments for the plants. My minimum stay is 30 days. Any suggestions for that market would be greatly appreciated. Thank you, Virginia Snowden 38DF7987-DCDF-4161-9B35-38D23CCBF356.jpegF39F44CF-A35F-4DD5-BD85-D57F42DCC40C.jpeg

Oh! Silly me! I went ahead and "started a conversation" without realizing that you meant to ask for a listing critique here...  I'm such a dork...

Is it ok if I link that conversation here?
Thank you!!!
Isabel

Critique my listing Bethany Albuquerque NM. I have two listings. A tipi and a bell tent. I have not had bookings for the tipi yet. I have fiddled with pricing and discounts. I just moved to a higher simple pricing at 15% no guest fees.

 

Thank you for any feedback

Also: Ivtried to make a new thread but honestly don't know how and can't figure it out. I'm not experienced with message boards, so sorry in advance if this is the wrong place to post.

@Deepika11 We have found paying a bit for a Facebook Ad has boosted our business and helped us reach further from our local area. You can spend a minimal amount (you choose) and set your goals and spending limit quiet easily.
Also, we opened an Instagram account and shared our hashtag name with past guests and friends to tag us in their pictures around our Airbnb. 
Hope this helps you a bit 🙂
