Airbnb Host can apply for listing photography by Professional Photographer

Airbnb Host can apply for listing photography by Professional Photographer, alan lim Interior Photography

Many host told me that they really need a good picture of their unit. A good picture tells thousand story, and it also save lot of your time to do presentation of your Homestay. The right angle of photo, the correct lighting gives lot information to the prospect. Prospect can understand the environment by looking at the photo, and they might be direct booking based on that, without asking any question.
How to get people to do professional photography?
Not everyone born as photography or Interior designer, we need someone who have the expertise in this field to help. Hiring a Professional photographer is quite a high investment, and getting the right person to do the right job is even harder.
Airbnb always think ahead and help every eligible host, they had picked the right person “PHOTOGRAPHER” to standby for this. When a eligible host put up a photography request, Airbnb will assign a photographer to handle the request. If everything go smoothly, the whole process take about 1-4weeks to complete from request to photo shoot to upload and live in the listing page.

You might ask why again, why Airbnb give such a comprehensive service to the eligible host. Back to the previous explanation, A listing with GREAT photo sell better, and it is a marketing strategy to help the host who are not able to capture nice and proper picture of their listing. Of course the customer experiences and reviews plays a huge roles in your listing marketing, yet photo is the first impression.
Imagine, you search a homestay location in Airbnb, for instant, it pop out a few listings and you started to pick which one you click in and view it. Which one will you pick? Confirm the one with the nicest picture that attract you (pricing always not the most important for many traveller).
You wish to have a nice and comfort experience, that why you pick the listing that fulfil your basic requirement.
How you know it fulfil your basic need?
You learn from the picture that showing in the listing page. Ta da, Secure the deal. Happy Hosting and Happy Travelling.

    Agreed! Pictures carry a thousand words. Especially for travellers, they will use the pictures they seen on AirBnb to decide on which house/room to book. So good pictures are very important!

    I knew Airbnb is providing such service. It is a win-win situation. They got more people listing on their website. More options for travellers to choose and they earn more meanwhile the host earns too.
