Our journey to help promote Montana cabins, cottages, ranch lodges and homes has begun. On June 3, 2015 we launched our 5th state-specific, vacation rental website: RentMontanaCabins.com.
We are the JM Creative Group and we have rolled out websites for Wisconsin (2009), Minnesota (2013), Michigan (2013), New York (2014) and last week Montana. We are not associated with any other listing website. In fact, we are the opposite of those big booking websites. Helping rental owners/managers build THEIR online brand and clearing a path for renters to book direct is our foundation.
Rental owners/managers invest in their property website; they spend hours keeping vacationers engaged on social media; they might even have YouTube videos. So, why do those big listing websites hide that great information from renters? They need renters to stay on their website and click that “book it” button so they can grab your booking dollars! We link to all your brand-building efforts.
We read rental-industry blogs and LinkedIn community conversations daily. It’s crazy, either big booking websites are acquiring each other, or they are forcing “book it” buttons down the throat of their members. Their search engines have been reported to not work as promised for premier-paying members, plus they refuse to listen to renters –they prefer to book directly with rental owners and property managers 30 to 1.
Our honest and unselfish website service is a breath of fresh air for rental owners/managers that are looking to become less-reliant on big booking websites. We are a small group of internet marketers in Wisconsin whose passion for promoting the vacation rental industry stems from our founder Joe Mogensen who grew up at a lodge/cabin resort his family owned in northern Wisconsin.
This is a cabin at the Alta Ranch. Our first member! See what their listing looks like.
Rates start at $95/YEAR for one rental listing (see our rates page). The more rentals you list, the lower each listing is AND the higher your return. No booking commissions, no book it buttons, no platinum fees that don’t deliver on their promise, no double booking. YES, we initially set up your listing(s) for you for no extra fee (it’s how we roll).
Why put some much time and expense into creating separate sites? We learned from our Wisconsin website that building state-specific, vacation rental industry brands results in a better search experience for renters, and a high-return advertising opportunity for members. Search engines like Google and Bing are quick to reward industry-focused websites that have quality content. There is no better way to show search engines your seriousness then by creating unique websites for each state.
What phrases are Montana vacationers using to find your rentals? We’re glad to share some keyword studies, because that is what a marketing partner does. #1 Montana cabin rentals; #2. Montana cabins; #3. Cabin rentals in Montana; #4. Montana vacation rentals; #5. Montana ranch vacation. When you focus on a niche, amazing things happen.
