Learn how to turn your vacant land, cabin, or spare room into extra money using Airbnb at a two-part training workshop.

Made possible through a partnership between the Vinton County Convention and Visitors Bureau and Rural Action, the training includes two sessions over the course of two weeks, for a total of six hours. Developed by the Mountain Association for Community Economic Development (MACED) with the guidance of nine Airbnb hosts from across eastern Kentucky and facilitated by an Airbnb superhost, the hands-on workshop will teach participants how to:

• Develop an Airbnb listing
• Market their property
• Comply with local taxes and regulations
• Connect with local tourism efforts for maximum visibility

Opportunity exists in rural communities to grow the home sharing market. According to Airbnb statistics, only 12 percent of listings are in rural areas. There were 450 active rural hosts in Ohio in 2017. The typical rural Airbnb host earns $3,400 annually. Property owners keep 97 percent of the listing price when they list with the online home-sharing site.

Training sessions are 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. on Sunday, March 29 and April 5 at the Zaleski ODNR Complex, located at 29371 Wheelabout Road, McArthur. Registration is $25. Refreshments will be provided.
