Mon­i­tor your en­quiries ev­ery day on a reg­u­lar ba­sis. Po­ten­tial guests can rea­son­ably ex­pect a re­ply within 24 hours and will as­sume that you are uninterested or un­pro­fes­sional if you ig­nore them for longer. An email re­ply is ac­cept­able but a phone call is best. Don’t miss a sell­ing op­por­tu­nity be­cause you don’t want to in­vest in a phone call, which gives you the chance to es­tab­lish per­sonal con­tact and re­ally sell your prop­erty. Build any costs into your mar­ket­ing bud­get.

Use SMS alerts to make sure that you know when an en­quiry has been re­ceived, even if you are away from your own com­puter, and be sure to log on and read it. Make the most of mod­ern tech­nol­ogy!
