How to be a Profitable Airbnb LandlordThe #1 course helping landlords find a profitable niche with short-term rentals YES, I'm ready to be more profitable!
Specifically for Landlords
Oh thank God!
I hope I caught you in time.
If you’re a landlord considering starting or improving a short term rental business, then you’re at the right spot. However, if you share your home or vacation rental, then thanks for stopping by…but these concepts are not for you.
OK, I’m glad you’re here to learn more about how short term rentals can help you diversify and grow your rental income. That’s smart!
You’re in the right place if you’re a rental owner who wants do any of the following:
Get into the lucrative niche of providing short term housing
Serve gainfully-employed people from all over the world and not be dependent on the ups and downs of your local job market
Increase your net rental income by way more than 30% without working yourself to death
If that’s you, then you’ll want to read on. The following information will change your life.
Online platforms like Airbnb, HomeAway/VRBO and TripAdvisor are game changers. But many landlords are falling into the trap of operating as if they are sharing their personal residence. As a result, they are loosing money, burning themselves out and telling anyone who’ll listen about their failure.
It would be my honor to help you get off on the right foot. Or help you become more profitable if you’re already in the short term rental business.
I’d like to share some concepts that are vital for Airbnb landlords to understand…
But first let me to introduce myself.
Why You Should Listen to Me?
My name is Al Williamson. I’m a Professional Engineer who has been landlording since 1996. I’ve also been an active Airbnb guest and host since 2011.
I’ve written three real estate books and have been featured on many real estate shows.
That’s me speaking to a group of investors in the picture.
Various real estate organizations and forums considered me to be a thought leader on ways landlords can increase their NET INCOMES.
After years of staying in Airbnbs all over the U.S. and observing the evolution of this industry, I’ve gained some insights. And I believe, if (and only if) you’re a landlord, you should play to your strengths and not compete with people who share their homes. Otherwise you risk loosing money and wearing yourself out.
So I’ve created a set of operating guidelines and templates to help you operate in a sustainable and profitable way.
Tap More of Your Cash Flow Potential
I’d like to share a concept that can really help your bottom line especially if you:
Need more cash flow from your rental property and like to operate as passively as possible
Need a reliable income stream but don’t want to deal with Section 8 tenants
Are an existing short-term landlord but realize your NET INCOME really doesn’t justify your efforts
Well your situation can change. And change quick!
If you think your rental has Airbnb potential – it probably does. Listen to your gut.
Especially if you’re near a hospital, business district, airport, college, or convention center… you likely have a strong chance of netting at least 30% more than a traditional landlord. And you can do that even if you’re in an city that’s not friendly to short term rentals.
Of course you can increase your net income much more than 30%, but you should expect that to be the minimum. Once you get a few good reviews under your belt, you can increase your rates and boost your net income even higher!
So if you’re tired of coming out of pocket to pay your rental’s expenses, then this course will show you how to generate more income.
If you’re not happy with the traditional rental market, then let me show you a more profitable way to operate.
OK…Let’s do it!
City Ordinances – Obstacles and Opportunities
Right off the bat I want to address the current regulatory climate.
Short term rentals are skyrocketing in popularity and some local governments are adding restrictions.
Newspapers and magazines love to feature stories about the struggles some hosts have with outdated city ordinances. This smartphone-empowered industry is relatively new and growing pains should be expected.
So I encourage you to learn about your city’s regulations before getting started.
However, let me point out that restrictions MAY HELP YOU. They raise the barrier of entry and can create even better opportunities. So plan to be compliant but savvy as well. There’re ALWAYS exceptions…
More on that later…
The Way of an Airbnb Landlord
Profitable Airbnb Landlords don’t operate like people who share their homes. I’ve seen many well-intended practices in my travels. Landlords were doing what other books and blogs suggested, but that doesn’t lead to above baseline profits.
Landlords have to bring in more than their traditional rents to be profitable with Airbnb. We have a different standard for profitability.
So since I run a website dedicated to helping landlords increase their net incomes, I engineered a system that works. And after testing it on my own property and with other rental owners as well, I’m now able to offer you a proven system.
Want a passive business? Then get set up to serve a niche client (business travelers) and make your unit self-explanatory.
Fed up with tenants destroying your remodeled rental? Well welcome to furnish rental! Start charging extra for furnishings.
Want your multifamily to produce more NET income? Set up one unit for Airbnb or short term rentals and dominate a local sub-market of your choosing.
This System Will Help You…

And If You’re Already a Short-Stay Provider…
From time to time I’m approached by rental owners who are already running an Airbnb rental. They ask me, “Will your course be of any benefit to me? I don’t want to waste my money on something I already know.” My honest answer is “Yes”. And here’s why.
Included in the course, you’ll get ongoing emails and announcements so you can:
Refine your listing so guest find you before they see your competitors
Get summaries of the best selling books regarding Airbnb
Hear about and see the NEW best practices of other landlords (not home sharers)
Learn from the community of landlords during periodic conference calls
PLUS, existing operators tell me that my review of their listings, based on my experience with 100s of students from all over the world, gives them money-making refinements that alone are worth the price of the course.
Transform Into Something More Profitable
J. Martin of Oakland, CA was up and going as an Airbnb landlord. He had about 40 stays under his belt when I shared my principles of serving travelers instead of tourists. Martin is known for taking massive action and he refocused his business as suggested.
And guess what happened? Once he started “dog-whistling” (target marketing) for people looking for extended stays, he reduced his turnover costs and started netting an additional $500 per month. Plus the busy work associated with regulatory compliance diminished.
What Others Say
When Al Williamson first told me years ago that I could make 3X the profit on furnished rentals, I thought he was a little out there. When I did it myself over and over, I became a true believer! Recently bought the Airbnb for Landlords course to improve my business more. Probably would have made another $100K if I would have listened to him a few years back! Thanks Al.
I have been a landlord for over 17 years and had never bought a course before now. Al helped me fine tune my description, made suggestions to my house rules and answered any questions. He helped me start going after business travelers, which has made me more profitable.
In the first 30 days my new Airbnb unit was on the market, I had 5 bookings for a total of 16 days of rent. Well worth the initial investment. Al is a great asset to have on your side.
If you are considering dipping your toe into the Airbnb or VRBO market, you have to get this course.
I have been quite impressed with Al’s response time and weekly emails. I found the information in the course to be of supreme value to me.
It helped me know who my competition is, what their prices are and which homes are most preferred. This was of the utmost-value to me since I am already signed up with Airbnb but needed help gaining more bookings.
The price [of the course] was well worth the cost.
Al offers a course that can help you think outside the box when it comes to rentals.
His course is concise and avoids the wordiness many courses use to make them think you’re getting a lot for your money; it gets to the point, so you can start working on your business!
I especially appreciate his prompt replies to my questions.
He is forthright and honest, so that you can feel good about your decisions regarding your rentals.

We placed a dummy ad to see if your Airbnb would get interest in my smaller town. We immediately started getting multiple reservation requests!
I sort of panicked took a breath and said… OK I bought Al’s course now let’s get MOVING.
The communication is great …. when we need help we always get it! Quick and easy via email LOVE it. Turned a problem house that rented for $850 into a charming house that brings in $2,100 per month!

When I first saw Airbnb landlord course I wondered what I would learn from it. We already had two properties furnished and operated in a small town America. After I finished his course, I was SHOCKED at all the things I was doing wrong.
By following the step-by-step instructions I was able to streamline my processes, increase my bookings, and transition from our traditional corporate to vacation rentals. Don’t be like me and try this alone. Buy this course and start off on the right foot from day ONE.

When I attended the Landlord’s conference in St Louis, after years in the landlording business, I was pretty sure I knew about everything there is to being a landlord. When I saw Al was going to talk about Airbnb for landlords, I wasn’t sure what it was about! Truthfully, I figured it was a “California” thing, probably not for the down-home Kansas crowd.
After his presentation, I knew I had to buy the materials and get in on something that really was a new idea for me. After the conference I sat down and looked at his videos and was so impressed with the simplicity of “working the plan”. So I basically contacted him and he answered right back and we were on the track to Airbnb world.
I contacted Al and he “held my hand” through the process of logging in, setting up my site, adding pictures for place holders – Al looked at my work, gave me good advice on how to improve and add new details. Photos and descriptions were a challenge, and I didn’t have much confidence in myself or my product. AL cheered me on and I kept working at it. I actually got my first reservation that same day that I uploaded the site.
So far I’ve earned enough money to reinvest in my cabin/bunkhouse with replacement carpeting in one of the bedrooms. We are into our 2nd month and I am hoping to be a “Super Host” with 5 star ratings from our guests, we’ve earned some real money and its been actually fun to do. All this is thanks to AL, his patience and guidance were so appreciated.
You better believe I’m telling this story to all my friends and family- and they are loving it.
