At Xplorie we’re proud of all of our business partners and what they bring to the table! Our goal as a business is to drive the vacation rental property management industry to higher levels of services, profitability and help our clients to develop their brand while enhancing the guest experience.
We believe that education is the cornerstone of a successful property management business. As the industry is constantly evolving, new technologies, new marketing strategies, and new approaches to managing your units are being born almost every day! That’s why we’re extremely proud of our partnership with Vacation Rental University.
VRU is a storehouse of knowledge for new and veteran vacation rental property managers. It’s a subscription service (more on this in a minute), that offers a free option with over 58 free lessons to help you grow your business and learn about that latest technology, strategies, and tips for creating the ultimate guest experience while maintaining your business profitably.
VRU offers a wide range of free, basic and advanced lessons to help you grow and learn. With courses in accounting, Marketing, Mergers and Acquisitions, Sales Techniques and Staff Management, (and a whole lot more!) you can find answers to the questions you might have about running, marketing and growing your property management business.
The site offers 58 free lessons, 201 Basic, and 152 Advanced lessons in the active VRU library. There are some great advanced marketing classes like Why You Should Use a Professional Photographer, as well as a series of classes on subjects like the Turnover Process to help you learn new skills and train your staff.
The classes are generally made up of short video and audio clips that take you through all of the elements of the subject. To really reap all of the benefits of VRU, you’ll want to consider a paid subscription.
