The solution? Fine-tune my ad!
I make complete sentences and make no spelling mistakes
I detail as much as possible: I am not limited in words so let's take advantage of it!
To add details, I fill in the following headings:
A brief summary, highlighting the strong points of my field.
The setting: Is it big? Is it noisy? How is the view? What is the atmosphere ? Are there animals on site?
The pitches: In the sun? In the shade? Isolated? Sheltered from the wind? Stabilized ground ?
Sanitary facilities: Are there any timetables? Is it inside or outside the house?
The equipment: I describe precisely what I make available. I am precise. This will prevent travelers from asking me the same questions over and over again. Are there times for the sanitary facilities? In which part of the site is wifi accessible?
Activities: I specify the different points of interest (beaches, hiking trails, visits, kayak rentals, etc.) in the vicinity and the distance from my site. If I offer activities on the spot, I do not hesitate to add them here.
Rules of the field: Is there an arrival or departure time? Is it possible to smoke on site? Is it possible to make a fire?
I avoid capital letters that are aggressive to the eye.
I take beautiful pictures of my land, the surrounding landscapes and what I offer to guests. The more photos I give, the more I'm visible on HomeCamper so I don't hesitate ;-).
For that, you have to :
Have a good camera or a recent smartphone. If I don't have any of that, I ask a friend.
Pass the lawnmower and I tidy up the things that are lying around before taking my pictures, cleanliness above all !
A nice light : I take advantage of a beautiful sunny day to take my pictures.
A good format : I take photos in "Landscape" format rather than "Profile".
A nice framing : I take a general picture of the site, I take pictures of each part of my site, I take pictures of the pitches, in the case of an accommodation, I take pictures of the tent / shed / yurt (inside and outside). I take pictures of the places accessible to the travelers (toilets, various rooms, kitchen...) If I offer breakfast, I can also add a picture of what I can make. At last, I add some pictures of the view from the site or the surroundings and specify what it is about.
Avoid: I avoid photos that are too dark, too zoomed or too blurry. I also avoid photo montages and photos taken out of season:
I don't put: address, email, phone, place name, map, website address or any information that could identify you.
I choose with attention the featured picture (which will appear in the search page): For empty pitches, it is preferable to put a general photo of the land. For accommodations, it is necessary to put a photo of the accommodation first.
I respect the rules of HomeCamper :
Put my coordinates: email, address, website, GPS coordinates, name allowing people to identify me (XXXX Garden, XXXX Guest House, XXXX Vineyard...) My coordinates will be transmitted to the travelers when the reservation is paid and confirmed.
Put a price: Generally speaking, I don't need to put prices in my text. The prices given in the "Prices" tab must include all the services provided (shower, electricity, swimming pool...) If I offer breakfast, a specific box exists in the "Prices" tab. Only prices for washing machines and meals are tolerated in the ad.
Suggest another mean of payment.
Advertise an ad that is not part of the campsite (gite, bed and breakfast). Otherwise, I am considered to be a fraudster and may be excluded from the HomeCamper community.
