Vacation rental listing app Dwellable is celebrating the beta release of their new online booking engine by giving away up to $1,000 towards a VRMA conference or 2015 membership dues to one lucky property manager.
In the last six months Dwellable has raised $2 million, tripled the size of its team, become the 8th most downloaded Hotel/Lodging App in the US*, and moved into the race with Booking.com and HomeAway by adding a booking engine.
The initial response from early adopters in the industry has been incredibly positive. Dwellable remain free of charge to property managers – even with the addition of the booking engine – making it a clear winner in value among listing sites and OTA’s who are increasing their rates aggressively.
The time is right for a hard look at the mobile app consumer market for vacation rentals. Property managers who attended the national VRMA conference in San Diego this last October heard that bookings via smart phones has doubled, and industry experts expect this trend to continue.
As the leading mobile app, Dwellable serves a unique audience not otherwise captured by the mega listing sites. Dwellable’s users are younger, tech-savvy travelers who almost exclusively use apps to navigate the web and make purchases both small and large. As this generation matures it will become increasingly important that property managers have a presence and ability to be booked via mobile app. Those property managers who understand the importance of listing sites who are mobile focused will be poised to serve the next generation of purchasers.
Here’s Dwellable’s current promotion: Sign up by December 31, 2014, and get your bookable listings live by March 15, 2015 to be entered to win up to $1,000 towards a VRMA conference or 2015 membership dues. Details and sign up form can be found at: www.dwellable.com/vrma
