093.5: Have You Got | Deborah Labi | Direct Bookings Network

Build Your Network – Get More Direct Bookings

Ever been asked by a potential guest for a property you don’t have ? Whether it’s the location, the date, the size, the facility that doesn’t quite fit?

Yes. Me too.

And so has Deborah Labi – many times over in her 13 years in the Holiday Let Industry. Deborah realised she had turned away thousands of pounds worth of bookings over the years due to not having exactly what the guest wanted in her own portfolio and didn’t have the network locally to refer the guest to.

If it’s happened to me….

Deborah realised that if this had happened to her – then it would have happened to other property managers and owners too.

Where was all this lost business going – off into the internet chasm!

Deborah saw an opportunity to stop losing this business, build a better experience for the guest and for other property owners too – and so Have You Got – Was born to fix it.

Deborah Labi joins us from Have You Got – the alternative to the OTA’s that offers a one stop shop to book direct – connecting owners and guests with a shared goal – personal service for guests and more bookings for one another through connection and conversation
