What marketing will you do for my home?
The goal of marketing in the vacation rental industry is to produce a large number of people interested in staying at your home (leads). In Sunriver, Google is the number one source for vacation rental leads. Bing, Yahoo, Airbnb.com, and VRBO.com are distant seconds. We market effectively and extensively on these websites and more. Our Sales Team generates leads by continually marketing, by phone and email, relevant and personalized information to people interested in Sunriver. If someone is interested in staying in your home we will continue to follow up with them until they book. No lead left behind! Bennington Properties is leading the industry in converting leads into reservations using four unique ways; reputation, relationship-focused sales, web presence and technology.
Reputation. Bennington Properties has effectively, since our start in 1998, taken great care of our guests. This care has translated into a strong reputation of service excellence resulting in the highest percentage of return guests in the industry.
Relationship-Focused Sales. By focusing on getting to know the guest and their individual needs our team is able to build relationships of loyalty and trust that has resulted in one of the highest lead conversion rates in the industry.
Web Presence. Using the same philosophy and model that has made Amazon.com a success, we are continually improving and enhancing our website with the latest web technology resulting in a higher than industry average online booking rate.
Technology. We use multiple forms of technology to market to guests. For email marketing we use a web based platform called REACH (Real-Time CRM Data Marketing System) that sends the right message to our clients at the right time to drive direct demand and increase revenue. Our Bennington smartphone App has become very popular among our guests and allows us to stay in contact before, during, and after their stay. Through the app we can let our clients know of special offers, promotions, and to encourage them to re-book your home for their next Sunriver vacation.
