What is the RBO Network
The RBO Network is a vacation rentals directory on the internet. We
give vacation rental owners the opportunity to put their rental on
the internet for the entire world to see. Prospective renters can
make a request to rent a vacation property online. The request is
emailed to the vacation rental property owner. The rental owner then
takes the rental request and communicates with the renter ideally to
result in a booking.
What makes RBO Network different from all the other vacation rental
rental is displayed on a website specifically dedicated to your
vacation destination. For example, if you have a vacation rental in
Puerto Vallarta, you will be listed on our website www.puertovallartarentalsnetwork.com
This area specific approach allows us to position our websites to be
seen by people searching the internet for the area where your rental
is located. The Puerto Vallarta example above is just one example. The RBO
Network researched popular travel destinations and currently has
hundreds of websites dedicated to specific vacation destinations.
vacation rental websites will list your rental along side a
bunch of rentals from different locations all over the
world. While this method can be effective, we feel that it is
not the most effective way to spend your hard earned marketing
dollars. RBO Network eliminates the guess work of
wondering if your rental, let alone your destination city
itself, will garner the attention of a vacationer.
This is done once again because we only target the market where your
rental is located, nothing else. We feel that the Direct Target
Market Strategy is the ingredient behind the success of listing with
us. We target renters specifically searching for your
Why use RBO Network to list my rental?
The simple answer is to have your rental seen by more
people, ultimately increasing your rental income and cash flow.
In most cases, an owner only needs one night total booked over
the 12 month listing period to cover the yearly cost of their
listing. After one night has been booked, the listing has
paid for itself and the rest is pure profit to the owner.
Read on to see why we are the best at what we do and find even more
detailed benefits to you, the owner.
How was the RBO Network started?
RBO Network is from the creators of www.mypartyplanner.com
My party planner receives 20,000 daily visitors, we are able to
harness the expertise of My party planner on gaining internet traffic
and translate that to the RBO Network. This coupled with the success
of RP Rentals by Owner utilizing a direct marketing approach gives us
a unique position in the market place to benefit you.
What are the benefits to listing your rental with the RBO
There are many benefits to use the RBO Network. The primary benefit
is that your rental income will increase thus increasing your cash
flow. Another important benefit is that your rental will be
seen by its target market of renters. Each RBO Network website
advertises specifically to your rental destination location. This
helps ensure that we are best positioned for your rental to be seen
by people actually searching for the location of your rental.
Additional benefits to you, you may create a continual pool of
renters for your property. What does this mean? When
your rental is occupied, and the occupant is satisfied, it is likely
that on their return to the destination where your rental is located,
your rental is requested by that occupant again. This is key
because one repeat loyal renter gained yearly, can pay for the cost
of your listing themselves by continuing to return to your unit.
In what order do the listings show up on the view listings page?
By the TYPE of listing package you
purchased, GOLD or the free listing. The GOLD listing gives the owner
the highest level of exposure possible, and the most feature rich
listing available with up to 24 photos. Gold listing packages are
ALWAYS displayed above all Free listing packages in the search
How do the listings rotate within their levels?
All GOLD listing

your listing could be later seen in position 2 by a new visitor. All
GOLD listings are always positioned above free listings and rotate
within their level position. All Free listings follow the same
rotation logic but will never be seen above a GOLD listing in search
