Podcast Mark the 6th – 8th November in your calendars for the Vacation Rental World Summit 2015 and settle down for 3 days of VR immersion. That is what Antonio Bortolotti, the creator and host of VRWS15 would like you to do, and he is here to tell us why in this episode of Vacation Rental Success. I’ve interviewed Antonio on several occasions and it’s always a pleasure to speak with him – and not just for his wonderful Italian accent! He is a great networker and very adept at bringing people together to talk about our industry, and the collection of speakers he has amassed for the Summit is no exception. In our interview, Antonio reflects on the success of the Vacation Rental World Summit 2014, not just for him but for those who attended. He heard from many attendees who took the takeaways from the event and applied them into their businesses and experienced massive results. We also talked about the nature of this summit which is a little different from other similar events, because those who attend live have the opportunity to chat online with each presenter after their session. This means that any questions get an immediate answer. This years summit features 12 outstanding presenters: Antonio Bortolotti on maximizing ROI in your website – converting more lookers into bookers Vince Perez from Fetch My Guest about how you can regain control of your VR business Richard Vaughton – payment processing – how to get things to work on the money management aspect of your business Seb Grosjean – CEO of Booking Sync – VR Software unmasked – pitfalls myths truths and solutions Andrew McConnell from .rented (formerly Vacation Futures Me! on Getting Engaged with your audience by using social media socially Alan Egan from Rent More Weeks on Google + Rod Fitts – President of VROA – talking about regulations in interviews with two owners Mike Bayer from Vacation Rental Formula on Lead Generation and Email Automation Kirk Biglione – WordPress & SEO Super expert….on Beyond SEO Tyann Marcink – Owner and professional photographer on how to choose the perfect lead photo to showcase your property online Mr X??? – the bonus speaker – Antonio won’t tell us who he is! Just in case you are on the fence about the value of these sessions take a look at this testimonial from VRWS14 attendee Lisa Ha Smith: “I got so much out of the VRWS! I utilized the break times between sessions to improve all my marketing. In three days time I had started Google Plus and Pinterest pages, revised my canned inquiry responses and drafted my first “bespoke reply” landing page. I also made extensive revisions to my website to put the information my guests want front and center. And that’s just my marketing! There’s much more on my To Do lists for decorating and photos, property enhancements, business model and planning for my next VR purchase. My biggest take away is the fact that people in this industry will not survive if they don’t adapt. (Wendy Shand). Thank you to Antonio and all the presenters!” When: November 6th – 8th Where: On a computer near you! How much?
