Vacation Rental Content Marketing Boot Camp Week 1: Defining Your Audience

Content Marketing - Defining Your Audience

So you’re ready to ramp up your vacation rental content marketing efforts?

Great choice! Content marketing is a solid strategy for gaining new guests and forging bonds with former ones. But before you start talking, you need to figure out who’s listening.

In the first week of our New Year’s content marketing boot camp, we discussed what content marketing is, how it works and how to establish an audience you’ll aim to reach with your efforts.

From creating fictional guest personas to combing your guest reviews for insight, we covered several strategies to figure out who you’re writing for, and reserved some time at the end to answer your questions about all things content marketing.

If you’d like to attend the rest of our boot camp or future webinars and (optionally!) have your own content critiqued by us, please head over to the Webinar Friday page where you can sign up!
