    Hi Dawn

    I contacted you about a year ago hoping you'd take a look at my website. But at the time you were "slammed" with member requests. Just wondering if you now have a little time to critique by site? www.mulleysstjohnvillas.com

    thanks Mike Mullen
    Hey Dawn....

    I had no idea that you were a WP Genius. I'm just wrapping up a WP website for a client and am looking to do some more. We're primarily targeting management companies that use Escapia. Have you ever done this kind of thing?

    I'd love to talk love to talk with you about WP if you have a chance...and Love, love, love your work!

    Hi Dawn: I'm a new member with a house in Italy <www.villalavandaitaly.com> & on HA, VRBO etc. Doing ok 'til recently, but things seem to have come to halt. We seem price competitive; only 5 star reviews & getting views but not enquiries. While I have some ideas about potential issues, I'm worried that we're missing something with our site and would really appreciate getting in your queue. Thanks!

    Hi Jonathan! Welcome to the IC. I stopped doing the weekly website reviews and we'd planned to re-craft that somehow before we continue it but I got busy and just have not gotten back to it.

    Are you collecting stats for your website traffic? Has that changed? How are you ranking on search engines for desired search phrases? Are you gaining traction on that or losing it? The drop off in business could be due to a slump in your market but a good time to take a look and try to fill that gap by increasing your traffic and search rankings.
    Hi, Dawn - My website finally went live! Aside from calendar problems soon to be fixed, (looks like few reservations, but there are actually many) I would love to hear people's general take on my website. Hope you can put tropicalblessings.com in the queu. Thanks!
    Hi, Dawn -

    Matt suggested I give you my website draft to put in the queu for review. tropicalblessings.smiwebsites.com.

    Best,

    I am wondering: what are all of you doing to support and market your communities? What are you doing to "pay it forward."

    I put on free events like Heirloom Seed Exchanges, Healing Arts' Fairs, Art Shows and I also film video clips of community events to boost commerce. I also am a big gardener and herbalist and happily kick free seeds and starts to new gardeners who want to grow more of their own food and medicine. I've volunteered as the permaculture manager at the local community garden too...
    Welcome Dawn!!! Feel free to jump right in with questions or comments wherever you feel the desire!

    Thanks Matt. I have to say that I am actually asking Ralph for some input as to how to introduce myself. I am coming at this industry somewhat from the outside-in. A different angle. I definitely don't want to be affiliated with the sell-sell-sell vendors in this industry so I guess that designation will come with time and with the quality of my participation...

    We love diversity! Just share who you are, what you're looking to learn from the IC and what you're looking to put back in. @Drew and @ConradO are "vendors" who do this really well.

I'm a web & marketing consultant who has been working with a growing number of vacation rental owners/managers. I also successfully managed and marketed a vacation rental for 4 years.

I am here on the IC to learn more so I can better serve my clients and also here to join in and participate in the discussions & reviews...generally to be a resource for IC members.
