Cary, NC (PRWEB) January 24, 2012
Open Vacation Weeks announced a partnership today with Hatteras Realty. The partnership agreement between the companies means Hatteras Realty will use the Open Vacation Weeks platform to augment the current marketing programs in place. The solution will help create additional rental income for over 500 properties under management by Hatteras Realty. In addition to providing another avenue for annual advertising, Open Vacation Weeks offers a suite of integrated marketing tools that help owners and property managers fill open weeks in the rental calendar, thus adding incremental revenue to the owners that Hatteras serves.
Considered by many in the vacation rental industry to be among the market leaders on Hatteras Island, Hatteras Realty sees this product as long overdue in the internet advertising business. Having tried many “pure advertising” sites that have flooded the market in recent years, Amy Helle, Vice President with Hatteras Realty views the marketing tools in http://www.openvacationweeks.com as a “game changer” in the competitive vacation rental market. “Competing for a finite pool of rental revenue every year means we have to continually evaluate our marketing efforts and the internet tools available. We believe Open Vacation Weeks offers us a new and unique method of competing and provides the edge we have been looking for in the rental market on Hatteras Island.”
Unlike other vacation rental websites that simply list properties, http://www.openvacationweeks.com offers several marketing options, including a unique auction-style format, easy post to Craigslist, an outbound email tool and, the newest tool – the “Offer Wall” that lets potential renters post their budget (offer) to a sortable bulletin board for owners and companies like Hatteras to review for potential renters.
