San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) October 05, 2012
MyVR, an online website builder and marketing solution that allows vacation rental owners and operators to consolidate all of their marketing efforts in one place, announces the launch of its software today.
With MyVR, vacation rental owners can upload their home information once, and then easily advertise across multiple marketing channels with a few simple clicks. Owners can launch their own website, purchase listings on the major listing sites, register with local directories, and launch their own social marketing – all from their MyVR dashboard. With MyVR, owners use centralized management tools that provide a single, consolidated dashboard for inquiries, calendars, rates, photos, and home info across all channels.
“As vacation home owners ourselves, our team understands and seeks to alleviate the pain and complexity of operating a vacation rental property. We want to help vacation rental owners market their homes and generate more inquiries, but with far less work,” says Jonathan Murray, CEO and Co-founder of MyVR.
The MyVR website builder helps vacation rental owners launch a professional website with their own custom domain in only a few minutes. Websites made through the do-it-yourself website builder feature a local guide with recommendations on local restaurants, events, activities, and deals from the major daily deal providers. After building a website, owners can advertise on several of the most popular marketing channels, including FlipKey, TripAdvisor, and more.
Eric Horndahl, VP of Marketing at FlipKey – a TripAdvisor company, notes, “Many of our more savvy owners maintain a private website dedicated to their vacation home(s). It can be an easy and affordable way for owners to augment their marketing efforts and attract more guests.”
