The Problem: Dependency on OTAs

For offering top-notch condos, impeccable customer service, local expertise, and highly personable staff, it makes sense for Your Friend at the Beach to desire a decreased dependency on omnipresent, impersonal OTAs.
Before partnering with Q4Launch, Your Friend at the Beach:
• Had an Escapia-provided website
• Sent emails regularly
• Had a solid foundation of followers on social media
• Tapped into a strong base of repeat guests
• Offered gorgeous properties
• Boasted a distinguished reputation.
To increase their revenue and move away from OTAs, Your Friend at the Beach wanted to partner with a company with a similar commitment to responsiveness and quality. That’s where Q4Launch’s vacation rental marketing services come in!
