How to Get More Swap Inquiries

If you have been a Member for a while and you are just not receiving as many swap inquiries as you would like, no worries! There are many ways to attract more swap offers and make your Listing shine. As a general rule the more information you provide about your home and yourself, the more interest you will generate. 

1. Create a Detailed Listing

Use all the features and tools which are available on your Listing Editor pages. Add plenty of nice photos of your home. Read our Great home Photos guide for some useful helps. Don´t forget to list all the Amenities your home can offer. Many of our Members will search for a swap partner based on the home amenities section. Use the Vacation Type section to describe the type of vacation your home can offer. 

2. Create a Detailed Profile 

Let other travelers get to know you ​and your traveling group. Use all the tools available on your Profile Editor pages. Interests, Verifications and Tags are all great tools to help you tell the Community what you are about. They help you to connect with like-minded people and for some Members this is very important. 

3. Keep Your Listing & Profile Updated

Updating your Listing info is very important, especially for the folks who have set very strict dates and destinations. Make sure to update your dates regularly. Make your offer more attractive by adding the newest info to your Listing. Is there a special festival happening in your area this summer? Add info about it under the Additional Information section. Some of our Members might be looking for it through a keyword search. 

4. Be Proactive

Remember that getting home swap offers is only one part of the story. You also need to be proactive, search for Listings you like to exchange and contact them.
