Can't make it live? No worries, you'll have lifetime access to the replays.
A thriving accommodation business is within reach... even in an economic downturn.
The key is to avoid these 3 pitfalls...
Not attracting enough bookings. With the cost of living constantly rising, fewer people are booking breaks away and it's becoming harder to get guests. To combat this, you find yourself relying heavily on the Online Travel Agents, forking out high commission fees for the few bookings they bring. You're starting to worry that bookings may dry up.
Getting caught up in the competition. More people are realising they can quickly and easily turn their homes, spare rooms and gardens into much-needed extra cash. And whilst you know that, in comparison, you offer a far better place to stay, you're frustrated because you just don't know how to make your business stand out from the crowd.
Simply not clearing enough profit. With fewer bookings, high OTA commission fees and ever-increasing costs, the money goes out as fast as it comes in. You might already be eating into your personal savings and you certainly can't pay yourself a wage at the moment. You're constantly questioning what on earth happens if the cash runs out?
It feels like there are SO MANY THINGS standing in your way which is causing you to...
1. Lower your prices in a desperate attempt to encourage more people to book with you
2. Resent the guests you DO get because they cause so much work for such little money
Either way, this is NOT the life you signed up for. If you're starting to think seriously about throwing in the towel, DON'T! Your business can be easy, rewarding and highly profitable - I'll teach you how.
Hi there, I'm Stephanie Thomas!
Over the last 12 years, I've helped more than three thousand accommodation providers from all corners of the world improve their marketing, boost their direct bookings and build strong, thriving businesses.
It all started when we bought our own accommodation business with dreams of a better life. But it wasn't quite like that in the beginning. Less than 12 months in, the Great Recession hit. The few bookings we had been getting dried up literally overnight. We weren't living our dream, we were living a nightmare!
I recognised that we had to adapt quickly if we were to survive, and through hard work and determination we actually GREW our business through the recession.
Whilst others around us were struggling, we doubled turnover and profits every year through the 2007-2009 economic downturn. We completely ditched the OTAs because all our bookings came direct. 65% of business was repeat. And we only had to trade for 9 months of the year!
We built an award-winning business that gave us the income and life we had dreamed of and when it came to selling the business, we sold it for a premium price in just 12 days!
How did we do it?
Quite simply, I created a formula that allows accommodation businesses to attract plenty of the right kind of guests. And that's what I want to share with you in this 4-day bootcamp!
Here's what I know to be true: Quality bookings don't come through the OTAs.
You know that guests who book through OTAs usually have sky-high expectations to go along with the rock-bottom prices they're paying.
To them, it doesn't matter that you offer a fantastic place to stay. It doesn't even matter that you're a phenomenal host who truly cares about your guests.
All that matters to them is getting the best deal.
Participating in the OTA model is really just a race to the bottom. And as we consider the current economic trends, it's time to find a new model. One where running your business is easy, rewarding and highly profitable.
In order to build a thriving business, you need a plan...
A plan to consistently attract quality guests.
Ones who book direct, pay more, stay longer and return often. Lovely guests who really value what you offer!
What if there was a proven step-by-step system that broke down exactly how to create such a plan?
My Short Stay Success Formula has helped our students to ditch the OTAs and multiply their revenue and profits!
I'm sharing the basics of my formula inside this bootcamp!

Why reinvent the wheel? You can start implementing my system in just 4 days and experience the results for yourself.

You'll be able to start taking action during the bootcamp. And by the end, you'll have a clear plan that builds on that momentum.

Here's What You're Getting Inside The Bootcamp:
4 Days of Live Training To Recession-Proof Your Accommodation Business
Each day, I'll share the essential steps you can take RIGHT NOW to attract plenty of quality bookings. Join me live in our members-only Facebook group (or watch the recordings).
TRAINING #1: PLAN
As we head further into a global financial crisis, fewer people are booking breaks away. Not only that, they have more accommodation options available than ever before. But let's not worry about trying to control things that are beyond our control. Instead, let's focus on a plan of action!
On Day One, I'm revealing how YOU can plan ahead to navigate these turbulent times.
Implement the plan NOW, attract more quality bookings and grow your business - regardless of the recession.
Monday 26th September @ 9 am EDT | 2 pm BST
TRAINING #2: POSITION
The OTAs want you to think they're your last, best chance to stay competitive in a global marketplace. But that's simply untrue. You have something going for you which most other listings do not: you are a fantastic host!
On Day Two, I'm showing you how to opt out of the price war and play the positioning game instead.
Immediately raise your profile, stand out in the crowded online space and connect with guests you really like! (Your profit margins will thank you!)
Tuesday 27th September @ 9 am EDT | 2 pm BST
TRAINING #3: PROMOTE
Crossing your fingers and making a wish doesn't help during a boom. And it's certainly not a reliable "strategy" during an economic downturn. But when no one has ever taught you an effective alternative, your options are rather limited. So let's expand your options. Others have already gone through the trial and error process, which leaves you with just the gold nuggets.
On Day Three, I'm teaching you new strategies and techniques - tested by thousands of my students - that can boost your bookings practically overnight!
Benefit from others' innovations and out-of-the-box thinking so your own business can grow and thrive!
Wednesday 28th September @ 9 am EDT | 2 pm BST
TRAINING #4: PROSPER
Some days it feels like the pundits are unceasing in their negativity. Couple that with our penchant for doomsday scrolling, and we can work ourselves into quite a tizzy! But what if you believed me that you don't have to be afraid? What if you felt confident? What if you could defy the odds and actually grow your business during these challenging times?
On Day Four, I'm painting a picture of possibility for you. This is an exclusive opportunity to learn how the Short Stay Success Formula can literally change your life and your business.
My formula has already helped thousands of accommodation providers to multiply their revenue by factors of 5, 10 and even 20! You, too, could realise these results and come out of this recession stronger than ever.
Thursday 29th September @ 9 am EDT | 2 pm BST
Are you as excited as I am about the new life waiting for you at the end of this bootcamp?!
You don't have to wait for results to trickle in. Since I've been in your shoes before, I am committed to over-delivering on value, helping you feel 100% confident in this business investment, and ensuring you start experiencing results straight away.

Still wondering if this is right for you? Here's what some of our students say:
"Thank you for helping me to change my mindset. Repeat bookings for next year are rolling in - we need double the amount of apartments! And whilst I've been typing this another direct booking for 2 weeks has just come in!"
Alison Carsley-Lebatard, Austria
"I was frustrated that most of my bookings were one-nighters. But that all changed after attending the bootcamp and working with Stephanie. In less than 6 months, my average night stay is 3 nights but I'm also getting bookings of 4, 5 and even 7 nights. As a result, I'm less exhausted and have more free time."
Caroline Egan, Scotland
"When the accountant queried why the Booking.com commission fees were so much lower and questioned whether the figure was right, I could proudly say it was because MOST of our bookings were now coming direct!"
Nicky & Rik, England
"In less than a year our bookings doubled and they're still increasing. And they're ALL DIRECT and at the prices we always wanted to charge, but weren't confident enough to ask for!!"
Margaret & Domenico, Italy
"My first year in business is going so well thanks to your help. I've had lots of direct and repeat bookings. I've welcomed such wonderful guests and everything has been so easy. Running my B&B is exactly what I dreamed it would be!"
Di Johnson, Australia
"I am so pleased we found Stephanie and her bootcamp! In a short space of time we have gone from being at the last chance corral and thinking we were going to have to sell our business, to looking forward to a very bright future. In one week alone we had £7,000 worth of direct bookings!"
Michelle Hudson, England
"I was exhausted, but I couldn't give up my part-time job because we didn't have enough bookings. But when I joined the bootcamp and learnt how to grow the business quickly, I was able to resign from my job much sooner than I thought!"
Steph Davies, USA
"Because of Stephanie's advice, our business is destined for success. We are getting more bookings, we're getting longer stays and the guests have all been great!"
Nancy & John, Canada

Absolutely! I'm sharing the same strategies I used to build my own thriving and award-winning accommodation business during the 2008 recession. Over three thousand accommodation providers have used my Short Stay Success Formula to transform their own accommodation businesses. Furthermore, as technology and society have continued to evolve, I continue to learn and teach new tools for the future.
I believe that "when people pay, they pay attention". This means they're more likely to show up and put into action what they learn in the bootcamp to ultimately get results.
When you invest in this bootcamp, you're committing to showing up and taking action for yourself and your business. And since we're all starting at the same investment level, we get to create a positive, inspiring and motivating group of like-minded accommodation providers. It's what I like to call Bootcamp magic!
At the same time, I'm aware this may be our first interaction... so I am offering you this incredible value for a very modest price. With that being said, the price is likely to increase in the future, so I recommend you take advantage of it while you can!
Once you consider the 100% risk-free guarantee, you'll realise you have nothing to lose by joining. See for yourself just how my Short Stay Success Formula can help you to transform your business and your life!
Yes! By Day 1 of this Bootcamp I want you to feel like £37 was a steal. I want you to feel you've received so much support and relevant bookings boosting ideas that paying ONLY £37 for it feels like a crime. If you get to the end of Day 1 and you don't feel absolutely floored at the value of the content you're receiving inside the More Bookings Bootcamp, simply email my team by 9am BST on Day 2 (27th September) and we'll happily issue a full refund.
If you've made it here... then it's time to decide.
Here's the truth: nothing changes if nothing changes.
If you are sick and tired of constantly worrying about when your next booking is going to come in...
If you're feeling demoralised by the race-to-the-bottom model presented by the OTAs...
If you are heartsick about what the coming months and years will bring and whether your business will survive the challenges ahead...
Then this bootcamp is for you!
You CAN learn to Plan, Position, Promote, and PROSPER! You deserve to love your life and business again!
