How to Get More Airbnb Bookings: The Power of Professional Interior Photography

How do I get More Airbnb Bookings?

Well, dear reader, you’ve come to the right place. Let’s talk about The Power of Professional Interior Photography

How to Get More Airbnb Bookings: The Power of Professional Interior Photography

Ah, the age-old question for Airbnb hosts: “How do I get more bookings?” Well, dear reader, you’ve come to the right place. Let’s dive into the world of interior photography and discover how it can be your secret weapon in the Airbnb game. As professional luxury interior photographers and AirBNB super hosts, we have a little experience to share with you on this topic.

  • First Impressions Matter

    Imagine scrolling through Airbnb listings of average looking or even poorly lit photos then a beautiful magazine worthy hero image appears. Would you click to look? I bet you would. High-quality photos grab attention. They tell potential guests, “Hey, we made the effort to make this place worth your time (and money)!” In most markets, listings are filled with average real estate photos, but in competitive markets, many hosts have made investments in high end photography to stand out. No matter what kind of market you are in, better images catch more glances in the scroll and as long as your ratings reflect your presentation, more glances are going to turn into more bookings.

  • Not Just Any Photographer, An Interior Photographer

    Now, I know what you’re thinking. “I’ll just hire a real estate photographer or DIY with my smartphone.” Listen, everyone’s got a cousin or an iphone that can snap a photo! But unless uncle Jesse’s images are regularly getting the cover of the best design magazines, it may not be the best way to photograph your property. There’s also a difference between real estate photography and interior photography. The former focuses on selling properties with the fastest most inexpensive means of image capture, while the latter takes time to capture the essence and vibe of a space. It’s about evoking emotions and painting a picture of what staying in that space feels like. As luxury hotel photographers with over 20 years of experience, that’s how we roll with high end interior photography. So when asking “how do I get more airbnb bookings” consider that you may not be a luxury property but you might be able to learn from how they handle their photography.

  • Investment That Pays Off

    Think of professional photography as an investment. Yes, there’s an upfront cost, but the returns? More bookings, higher occupancy rates, and the ability to charge a premium. In the long run, those stunning photos will pay for themselves and you look good while they are doing it.

  • Stand Out in a Sea of Listings

    Let’s face it; the Airbnb market is saturated. To stand out, you need more than just a comfy bed and free Wi-Fi. You need to offer an experience. And that experience starts with the visuals. When guests see high-quality photos, they think, “This host cares about their listing and, by extension, their guests.”
