The lines are blurring in the short-term rental industry between vacation rentals, serviced apartments and the wants and needs of both leisure and business travellers. At Abode PR, we understand the nuances and challenges of running a successful property management business in the short term rental space.
Having a robust media relations, thought leadership strategy and content marketing strategy is fundamental for standing out from the crowd.

It’s a busy marketplace and many tech businesses benefit from the increased credibility, clarity of message and visibility that working with us brings.

Jessica has that rare combination of intelligent strategic vision and the ability to quickly and effectively execute integrated content, PR and social media campaigns. She delivers on time, every time and her sunny outlook makes it a pleasure to work with her. I've been running a marketing communications agency for over 30 years but I never come away from a meeting with Jessica without having learned some new and valuable insight. She's a true professional!
The most beneficial part of working together was having someone who understands the industry and was able to look at my current position and give me an honest appraisal and help guide me on getting my message clearer.

I was so worried about getting the best reach for the Vacation Rental Success Summit but then I discussed the event with Jessica from Abode PR and all that changed. She understood exactly what I wanted even better that I did and really helped me to reach markets I had not even considered. We had so many comments about how often people where seeing the event in many different media sources. Every time I look back at how amazingly Jessica's services worked I am so happy that I made the decision to work with her team to make my event so successful.

Great experience working with Jessica on PR for Touch Stay. She understood our goals instantly and translated that in to a workable PR plan. Not only that, but she successfully delivered on the plan, gaining us valuable exposure that we couldn't previously have delivered in-house. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Jessica!
