The phrase “a picture is worth a thousand words” has never been more applicable than when pertaining to vacation rentals. The images your potential guests view on your website are more than likely going to be one of the major determining factors for whether or not they click the “book” button. Follow our tips for the best possible photo gallery:
This is the time to make your rental properties shine and there’s no better way to show their true beauty than by hiring a professional photographer to capture them from every angle. Not only will a professional photographer be able to capture images with the best lighting, but they’ll also be able to focus in on the key features you would like to highlight. If the property features an outdoor jacuzzi, luxurious furnishings or sweeping views, be sure to include images in your photo gallery.
Hiring a professional photographer to capture images of your rental property is important. That being said, staying consistent in the quality of the images matters. Images taken with a professional camera and a cell phone are not the same and may deter a future guest from your properties. Remembering to create consistently high-quality photo galleries on all of your properties will not only give them the best chance of being booked, but will also allow you to showcase one cohesive brand all across the board.
Our final tip for the perfect photo gallery is to keep all of your images either portrait or landscape, do not go back and forth between the two. We recommend landscape because this is also the orientation of your browser window and will allow more of the image to be viewed at once, versus having to scroll down to see more.
If you follow these three important tips, your property photo galleries will look better than ever and will lead to more bookings. Images tell a story, and if you do it right, they will capture more guests looking to go on their next adventure.
