Rentalo.com NEWSLETTER FOR OWNERS
 January, 2006

Alfredo Purrinos
President, Rentalo.com
“We live in a wonderful world that is full of beauty, charm and adventure. There is no end to the adventures we can have if only we seek them with our eyes open.” Jawaharal Nehru.

In 2006, the travel industry will see more people than ever seeking the beauty, charm and adventure referred to in this quote. Whatever the case, they will TRAVEL. And that means more and more people will be seeking accommodations that suit their exact needs.

Whatever the destination, many indications suggest that 2006 will be excellent for our industry. “Tourism is on its way to becoming the largest industry in the world – the largest vehicle for globalization,” said Kim Hak Su, executive secretary of the United Nations Economic and Social Commission for Asia and the Pacific.

That’s good news to our ears and one of the many reasons we are committed to making Rentalo.com the best web portal for linking travelers to vacation properties worldwide. Here are some exciting highlights we want to share with you.

Our Traffic Strategy


Our mission is to link our clients’ properties to our expanding networks of lifetime value travelers and travel agents. In 2006, we are applying business intelligence for selecting and aggressively investing in traffic sources that produce the best possible returns on investment (ROI) for our clients. Search engine optimization efforts, strategic online affiliations, and measurable off-the-net advertising are some of these traffic sources.

Our Content Quality


Currently, we are enhancing our existing Define Search tool (soon to be renamed “Property Finder”) to assist travelers to quickly find properties that meet their exact needs. As a result, we expect this tool to help improve the quality of the inquiries sent to our property owners.

Webinars & Tutorials


Over the past few years, Rentalo.com has introduced many powerful features and tools for both travelers and property owners. In the coming months, we will be announcing a series of training webinars and introducing several flash tutorials to the site, to show our property owners and travelers how to take full advantage of our website’s rich features and tools.

New Exchange Service for Availability Calendars


For those property owners and innkeepers who maintain their property’s availability calendars online, we will soon introduce a new standard in XML (Exchange Marked Link) to exchange availability calendars with owner's websites as well as other vacation rental directories in the industry.

Please don’t hesitate to email your comments or feedback to info@rentalo.com.

On behalf of my team, I like to express our gratitude for your support, and look forward a very successful 2006!On behalf of my team, I like to express our gratitude for your support, and look forward a very successful 2006!
