What is
Airbnb For Profit?

Airbnb™ For Profit is the most comprehensive online course to equip anyone with a spare space to fund their dream – whether you own a property or not! This proven step-by-step system helps new and experienced Airbnb hosts maximise profit in the shortest amount of time.

This is unlike any other Airbnb course. We understand that short term rentals are not just standard real estate rentals; this covers advanced property, hotelier, customer experience, and listing strategies to maximise your space, bookings & profit. Your guests demand the best experience and it is this experience that can demand the best price. Not only do we teach you how to provide a luxe experience at a budget price, we equip you with ready-to-go templates, financial calculators, shopping lists, trade discounts and more to have you earning more profit – faster.


Why Airbnb?

Are you looking for additional income streams to fund your next dream?
Airbnb is proven to earn up to 3 x the average online side gig income (like uber, airtasker and the like)*.
Looking for creative strategies to maximise your existing property return? You can earn up to 120%* higher rent on your investment property compared to a long-term rental tenancy.

Anyone can Airbnb an under-utilised space for instant cash within days; but not everyone will be able to minimise costs to maximise their return using proven strategies. Are you a smart hustler who can spot a lucrative side gig, or are you looking to supplement your salary to fund your true passion, travel, or even a house deposit?  Our course teaches beginners, bona fide property investors and experienced Airbnb hosts everything they need to know to get their short-term rental bookings rolling in and handle the whole process with ease to achieve the highest possible profits.

Start with your own property, right now.

Don’t let home ownership and fear of risk be your blocker to more profit. Using an under-utilised space, this course teaches you everything you need to know, so you hit the ground running. You’ll learn how to scope out your competitors and strategically price your property to secure bookings ahead of competitors. You’ll learn to calculate your break-even price and how much profit you’ll make on every guest booking. You’ll know how to create the perfect online property listing that ranks higher in search results and gets guests lining up to book your space. You’ll know how to create a killer headline, captivating copy and powerful photography that lures guests in. And you’ll learn to host with ease by automating as much of the process as possible so it doesn’t disrupt your life.

Tap Straight Into a System

  • Start earning money by owning no property at all

    No deposit to buy a property? Don’t qualify for finance? Don’t worry! You don’t need to own any property to start making money from Airbnb. You can become a co-host, managing Airbnb guests for property owners in return for a fee. Or enter a ‘lease and sub-lease deal’ where you lease a rental property for the purpose of sub-leasing it on Airbnb. As the tenant and Airbnb host, you’ll manage it as an Airbnb rental and profit from doing so.

  • Uplift your weekly rent by as much as 125% 

    Uplift your rental income by converting a traditional rental property into an Airbnb property. The key is to take normal properties and rent them out for commercial or hotel like rents, fluctuating your nightly rate seasonally.  You’ll be surprised to know it’s not just the inner-city locations, beachside suburbs or tourist towns where Airbnb works. Often an ordinary home in the suburbs can become a lucrative little money spinner.

  • Access professional tools that make it easy

    One of the biggest misconceptions about Airbnb is that you just list your property and the bookings roll in. In order to maintain a steady stream of bookings that secures cash for you, you’ll need to be highly strategic about everything you do. We’ve created all the professional tools that enable you to approach any Airbnb investment in a strategic, calculated and highly disciplined way, that minimises risk along the way.
