It is with much regret that we have decided to retire the Smarthosts community and weekly newsletter, which was originally started by Rentivo just a few years ago. The original experiment grew into a truly objective community for vacation rental news and since then it has had a staggering 263,000 link clicks/article opens and over 17,000 subscribers.
Therefore, we’d like to take the time to thank everyone who contributed to the community – we’ve learned a lot and we hope you have too!
We will be shifting focus to the Rentivo vacation rental blog for more high-level industry analysis and strategy on popular topics.
Additionally, we will be running a shorter monthly newsletter, curated internally by us, summarising the key events, links and takeaways for that month.
- If you are already a weekly subscriber, you’ll start to receive our monthly newsletters automatically.
- If you are not apart of our newsletter, you can subscribe above.
- If you no longer want to be apart of our newsletters, please hit the unsubscribe link when you get our email.
