Perhaps you have an extra bedroom in your house that you use as a pretend gym, or maybe you have a vacation home that you never get a chance to visit because you're too busy. Becoming an Airbnb host can make these empty places add a few zeros to your bank account, and Evan Kimbrell, the instructor of the Mastering Airbnb course and San Francisco’s top Airbnb host, will teach you how.
Considering Kimbrell’s superhost status, he definitely knows a thing or two about making the most out of the home sharing platform. Through an informative bundle of lectures and content, you'll learn the ropes of running a successful Airbnb business by renting out your spare bedrooms for up to $5,000 a month, or your entire living space for up to $10,000 a month.
In this comprehensive course, you'll discover techniques on how to scope out your competition, create a viable plan for your renting operation, and land on the first page of search results, so guests can find your place quickly. Most importantly, the course will teach you how to create the perfect listing, covering how to take high-quality photos that’ll impress potential renters, write the best descriptions for your place, and implement strategic pricing, so that you have a higher chance of getting booked.
Once you've got that all down, you'll move on to learning how to limit your rental-related work to just 3 to 4 hours a week, allowing you to allocate your time to more important things. As a bonus, Kimbrell will also teach you how to do your taxes as an Airbnb host and how to rent your space while you're abroad.
The Mastering Airbnb course typically goes for $165, but for a limited time, The Daily Beast readers can get it on sale now for only $15.
