As you likely know, Hannah & I travel a lot. We stay in different Airbnb’s all over the world.
I want to share with you one creative way I save myself thousands of dollars in living costs over the coming months.
This strategy won’t work or apply to everyone, but the principle here can be applied to many different niches.
Airbnb has a simple refer-a-friend program where if you refer someone to Airbnb and they start using it you will receive travel credit for referring that person.
Every Airbnb user has access to this. Log into your account, click on your picture icon, then click “travel credit”. You should see something like this:
Airbnb will generate a unique link to you. Here’s mine: www.airbnb.co.uk/c/nbuchan2. When someone clicks on your link they are tracked using a thing called “cookies”. Meaning once they sign up and create an account, Airbnb will know that you are the one who referred them to the website.
So when someone joins Airbnb after clicking on your link, the user will receive Airbnb travel credit and so will you. The amount you receive changes based on how many people you refer. As you get more people to use Airbnb they will pay you more travel credit.
So the front end is very easy, all you have to do is copy the link provided and paste it into blog posts, your website, social media posts and have people start using Airbnb.
But we all know it’s not that easy…
Once you write a blog post and share it on social media, actually reaching people and having them click your link to use Airbnb is hard. It’s tough these days to get people to click on your link, create an account, and then, book and start using the service itself.
You have to get creative or no one will follow through and actually start using it.
