Hey Arthur,

Thanks for the shoutout! I'm Head of Growth at Beyond Pricing.

For those of you that aren't aware of Beyond Pricing, we're an automated dynamic pricing solution for Airbnb and other vacation rental sites. We utilize real-time market data to ensure our price recommendations maximize revenue and occupancy for our hosts. We bring the same sophistication utilized by the largest hotels and airlines in the world to the individual Airbnb host, at a fraction of the traditional enterprise software cost. Our SaaS solution allows you to link your Airbnb listing, preview our year of recommended rates, and sync those prices directly to your Airbnb calendar.

We analyze data on a daily basis in each of our individual markets. Our price recommendations are created based off three main variables: day of week, seasonality, and local events. After our algorithm creates a competitive daily rate for up to 12 months into the future, we push our price recommendations once daily to your Airbnb or other vacation rental channel.

Feel free to demo a random listing or your own for free here:

Appreciate any and all feedback!
