What is Digital Marketing?

Digital marketing refers to advertising through multiple digital channels such as search engines, websites, social media, email, video and content. The big sites don’t and won’t offer you digital marketing for your property listings because it takes a lot of work, time and investment (man-power).

But Why is Digital Marketing important for my listing?

Because when used effectively, digital marketing can generate more traffic, enquiries and bookings for your property. When used correctly, like we do here at Short Stay Directory, it will help make your listing the best it can be, promote a professional brand for your property and business.

We’ve discovered, the best results are using specific digital marketing techniques + authentic human connection, through personal contact.

What is SEO?

SEO is Search Engine Optimisation, it’s what’s done to a website to improve rankings and where it turns up in the search results. The #1 ranking spot is Page 1.

How will good SEO help my property listing?

We help you use the power of online search engines to get you more targeted visitors!

Every single day millions upon millions of people get on online search engines looking for all kinds of information or to even shop. They also get onto search to look for places to stay while traveling. But for people to find your property, you want to make sure your directory listing is optimised, so it is getting seen and showing up high in the search engines above all the competition.

It’s being able to say to potential guests, just ‘Google me” and you’ll find me. We’ll show you how to set this up, so it works for you.

The good news is, when you put your listing on the Short Stay Directory, you’ll begin the process of boosting your online SEO (Search Engine Optimization) in a natural way that gets you SEEN!

This means people who want exactly what you’re offering will find you, which will greatly increase the chance of you getting more bookings! MORE targeted online traffic = MORE bookings for you!

As your listing shoots up the search engine rankings, you’ll be getting FREE + ORGANIC traffic online from people who want what you’re offering. The longer you keep your listing active, the longer your rankings will rise! This means more bookings and more profits for you!

By taking the SEO hassles off your plate, you can focus on what you do best.

How Does Short Stay Directory Use SEO?

Here at the Short Stay Directory, we’re 100% committed to investing our own time and resources to make sure your listing has every opportunity to grow and flourish online.

We understand that we don’t succeed if you do, so that’s why we put all our efforts into getting your listings seen!

If you were to try and master SEO or even paid traffic ads for yourself online, it could easily cost you hundreds, if not thousands of dollars per month, hours, days and weeks of wasted time and effort, and a lot of headaches and frustration.  We’ve been there ourselves, having learned paid advertising like Google AdWords has limited ROI. The one thing it can guarantee is, it’s the fastest way to empty a bank account.

Proven Results – SEO Works

We’re taking what we’ve learnt through 5 years of research and practice and found the only way is to build ranking using SEO over time.  When you list with the Short Stay Directory, we’ll make everything easy for you and take care of all the hard work, so you can enjoy what you desire the most…and that’s getting your place booked directly with the people who want to stay in your place!

When you list your property on the Short Stay Directory, you can link to whatever page or website you wish. You’ll benefit by increasing your SEO ranking – industry term is SEO Juice. You see the way google calculates the ranking is based on many factors, a powerful one being your links. So, Link AWAY and start receiving enquiries and taking bookings DIRECTLY with potential guests, and never pay any other fees, commissions or other charges ever.

Can I keep my listings active on other sites?

Yes, sure thing. You can choose to advertise on the mainstream sites, however please be aware you’ll continue paying fees for bookings through that site.

Within your Short Stay Directory listing you can link your property to other sites including your own site for maximum online visibility.

How does it help local economy?

There are 3 ways your listing helps the local economy.
1: Short Stay Directory is 100% owned and operated. We re-invest into the community through various charities such as the Royal Flying Doctors and Guide Dogs Australia. Also, by hiring local people and through events and promotions to increase traveller spend at properties in Australia.

2: When you list in the Short Stay Directory you’re earning more money and getting back your freedom to choose where your money goes (and not to overseas sites that charge you fees and commissions).

3: Hosts earn more which means they can spend more locally – it’s about keeping jobs local and every bit helps.
