The most reviewed and highlighted book for Airbnb hosts! Danny is the best in the world at Airbnb. Why? He worked at Airbnb for 3 years He lives in Airbnbs, more than 1,100 nights in 60 cities He's an Airbnb Superhost He owns and operates an Airbnb property management company Trouble deciding between which book to buy? To ensure my book is the most comprehensive, I read 13 of the top Airbnb books on the market. Here's what some prior readers have said publicly: "You'll easily make your money back about 1000x over. Thank you, Danny!" - Amazon review "I tried a few blogs but most stated things I already knew. I found this book and figured that if I learned just one trick, I would make my money back in just one rental. Well, I found TONS! Seriously, there were so many things in this book that I had not thought of." - Amazon review "The listing you optimized appeared to be easier to read, was more approachable, and ranked higher as a result." - Customer of OptimizeMyBnb.com paraphrasing what Airbnb told him as it related to one of his listings using the strategies outlined in the book "I am an Airbnb expert...then I found you...you are the top!" - Blog comment on OptimizeMyBnb.com "Danny - You might be a magician. I made a bunch of your suggested updates to the listing and I've had $660 in bookings (only 2 nights!) in the last 24 hours." - Prior customer of OptimizeMyBnb.com "If you don't read this book, there will be a lot that you don't know that you don't know." - Symon He, foreword Optimize YOUR Bnb Daniel V. Rusteen - former Airbnb employee, Superhost, super guest (1,100+ days on Airbnb), and Airbnb property manager - reveals his strategies to rank high in Airbnb search by creating an optimal online listing and offline guest experience. "Daniel Rusteen's authoritative book is as comprehensive as it is enjoyable to read. I have never seen so much valuable, actionable advice in one place for an Airbnb host. Highly recommended!" - Chip Conley You will learn how to: Optimize your Airbnb listing to achieve a high Airbnb search rank Leverage tools to automate 80%+ of your Airbnb Interior design without professional help Successfully navigate slow season Identify problem Airbnb guests before they book Master your Airbnb title and text Take high-quality photos with your smartphone Create additional streams of revenue based on your Airbnb I started writing Optimize YOUR Bnb in July 2017 while staying at an Airbnb in Estonia. I met Veronika while exploring Old Town Tallinn. When I found out Veronika was an Airbnb host, I asked to see her listing. I saw potential, but her online listing wasn't much. I told Veronika about how I optimize Airbnb listings. We agreed that I would stay at her listing for a small discount in exchange for a fully optimized Airbnb listing. As of November 2017, Veronika has 10 5-star reviews. I wrote Optimize YOUR Bnb to reach more hosts like Veronika. This book contains the culmination of my five-year experience with Airbnb from being an employee and a guest, to a host, to Superhost, and to starting an Airbnb property management company. I've hosted everything from a living room couch to a 3-story, 5-bedroom hillside mansion. The information in this book is more complete and effective than anything on the market.
