1. What does it cost?

The standard price for each listing on StayInNorthCarolina.com begins at $159 per property. That is only $.43 a day – for a full year of 24/7 exposure to the thousands of visitors to our site! We only charge the one fee, no hidden charges, and no surprises! We offer discounts to those listing multiple properties. Contact us with questions about these discounts!



2. Do I need a credit card to sign up?

No! You do not need to use a credit card to list your vacation property on StayInNorthCarolina.com. At the time you create your vacation rental listing, if you would prefer to send payment by other means, you can mail your payment to us. We will send you an E-bill and a paper statement. However, your property listings will not go live on the website until your payment has been received. In the event that your payment is returned, we will immediately deactivate your account until satisfactory arrangements have been made.



3. Do I need to know HTML, or how to design my page?

No! When you join StayInNorthCarolina.com, you do not need to know anything more than how to fill out our simple web form. It is an easy to use and very user friendly. Once you have provided the information about your vacation property, we do the rest of the work!



4. How do I go about changing and updating my listing?

Once you have added your property to StayInNorthCarolina.com, you will use your USER NAME and PASSWORD (which you will have chosen on our form) to log in through our secure server and make any changes that you want. You can change any information as often as you like on a form similar to the one you used to create your listing. Once the changes are made, your new information will be instantly updated. If you need assistance, we are available by telephone during regular business hours (9 am to 5 pm) and by email M-F.



5. Who updates my page?

You do. We provide you with an administration tool which allows you to update your information (description, rates, amenities, photographs, things to do, availability calendar). We follow up to make sure that your information is correctly updated.



6. How do I add and change photographs to my listing?

We provide you with an administration tool that allows you to upload and update up to 12 photographs per listing. This tool works in a very similar way to attaching photos to email. This convenience is provided to you at no extra charge. We are available to assist you if you encounter a problem in this area by telephone during regular business hours (9am to 5pm) and by email M-F.



7. Do you charge to update photos or make changes to my listing?

No, we do not charge for updates to your listings. You are provided our administration tool which easily allows you to update your information at your convenience.



8. How will I receive my inquiries?

Once a potential renter finds your property on our website, there are two ways to contact you. The renter can fill out a simple request form that will be emailed to you directly OR if you choose, a telephone number that you provide.



9. May I provide links to other pages?

Yes. There are specific rules concerning which links are appropriate. Generally, we ask that the link point to your own website which contains more information about the specific property listing. We require a reciprocal link from your website back to StayinNorthCarolina.com (we provide a simple code to use for the link).



10. What do you do to market StayInNorthCarolina.com?

  • Marketing Organizations. We are members of multiple chambers and North Carolina Host Groups. We have also made sales calls in Canada.

  • Advertising. We place paid advertising in regional newspapers, magazines and travel publications.

  • Search Engine Optimized Web Site.

  • Pay-for-Click Campaigns.

  • Participation in Employee Discount Programs.



11. Do you offer an availability calendar?

Yes we do. Our availability calendar is easy to use – just simply check off the unavailable dates. Visitors to the website can easily see when your property is available – saving valuable time for you in responding to inquiries.



12. Are there setup fees?

No.



13. Are there management or referral fees?

No – there are no management or referral fees.



14. Can I cancel my listing?

We would hate to see you go, but yes, you can cancel your listing on StayInNorthCarolina.com by calling or emailing Customer Service. We do not offer refunds for cancellations.



15. How will I know if people are looking at my listing?

Once your property is in our database and published on StayInNorthCarolina.com, you will be able to immediately know how many people are looking at your property. We provide you real-time numbers of views and inquiries. This information is accessed through your administration tool.

We also store all of your inquiries which are also available to you at any time through your administration tool. Even if you are on vacation yourself, you are able to view ALL information on your listing!



16. Who sets and determines the price I charge to rent my property?

You determine the price and policies for your property.



17. Why should I list my vacation property with you and not someone else?

Value – we feel that we offer the best bang for the buck! We offer an extremely competitive price along with many years of experience in internet marketing. We are the only company exclusively marketing the entire mountain region of North Carolina. Look for us to soon to show up at the North Carolina beaches. We strive to offer the BEST Customer Care to our partners as well as visitors. Our vision is to build relationships in communities. And we are really nice people that want to take the time to get to know you and help you be successful!



18. Why am I not recieving as many requests as I expected?

There are many reasons you may not seem to be getting the requests you expect. Having great pictures that represent your property well is very important. Setting a reasonable rental price is also important. It is also very difficult to track who is referred from our site. Often people just say "the internet" when asked how they found your property.

Email requests are tracked by our system-the only way to track phone calls is to ask.



19. I am already on another site. Why should I list with you too?

Our results are proving to property owners that spending their marketing dollars with us is money well spent.

We hope that you have found all the answers to your questions – if not please call us at 800-367-0152 or email us at advertise@StayInNorthCarolina.com. We will do our best to answer any questions that you have.
