When you are creating your listing, make sure and describe the nuances of your space. Consider what makes it distinct and don’t shy away from the small details that describe how special it is. You may take some aspects of your space for granted, so try to describe it with fresh eyes. Do you have an abundance of natural light? A killer outdoor deck space? Reclaimed hardwood floors? Guests are constantly seeking to innovate and create keep this in mind and highlight the features of your space to help them do so in style.
Think like a guest
Guests want to know how your space will suit their needs. Whether they are looking for a one-of-a-kind location for a photoshoot or an urban retreat for their company offsite, they are less likely to book spaces with incomplete listing descriptions. Be thorough and explain how your space can be set up for different use types so help a guest envision a potential booking. Describe furniture and amenities provided, possible seating arrangements, electronic capabilities, and dining accessibility. These are just some of the key features a guest will be looking for.
Show your space in action
While accurately describing your space is important, actually showing your space in action with quality photography is the best way to attract potential guests. When guests are on the Peerspace platform, your feature image is the first thing they see, so make sure it is impressive and informative. In addition, include photos of your space in use. We recommend having more than ten photos per listing, with a mix of shots of the “raw” space and the space being used. This allows guests to visualize how their event will fit in the space and better understand if it can suit their needs.
