How can I make my listing more popular?

While location, amenities, photos, and pricing are important factors that motivate renters to book you boat, it also very dependent on how you as the owner manage your boat.

You can attract renters to your listing by letting your friends, colleagues, and neighbors know that they can now easily and safely rent your boat. Once your listing is live, you should promote it on any of your social networks (Facebook, Twitter, CraigsList, LinkedIn, etc). The more people know your boat is available, the more likely it is to be rented! Another good way to increase your rental success is to become a captain. Once you have your Captains License, you will be able to take 6 passengers up to 100 miles offshore.

As for making your boat listing more popular on our site, Boatbound has implemented a search algorithm that makes up where your boat is placed in the rankings. The higher the ranking, the most inquiries you will receive. Things like being responsive, approving or declining bookings, receiving positive reviews, having your boat set as instant bookable, etc. will help your boat get to the #1 position.
