There are many success stories of rental owners who made a fortune by renting their property without any paid advertising. This happened with an inherited property or with a property bought at a low price. But, as the property prices are higher every year and the mortgage is more and more expensive, the ROI (Return of investment) tends to fall, if you're not using the propper ways of promoting your business.
Online advertising offers the advantage of getting a high, measurable return on your money. You can see how many visitors you got, how many inquiries you received, how many bookings you made and... the £££ you got out of your investment. With only 10-15 GBP per month, you can have your rental promoted to thousands of visitors. Moreover, online rental advertising offers unique advantages compared to newspaper ads or travel agents:
- Availability calendars offer your visitors the posibility to perform a real-time check on the available periods. This way, you will spare yourself the trouble of answering "already booked" to hundreds of requests every year.

- In case you have direct bookings (from returning guests or friends), you can simply insert them into the online availability calendar. What's more, by using an universal availability calendar, you can keep all your availability information in one place, updating only one calendar and having all the others automatically updated.
