in the screens. In the last screen you choose a UserName. Make it simple, for
example if your name is Mary Smith, we suggest marysmith (it's one word and
usually in lower case) and a password which you will NOT forget (can be a
combination of alpha and numeric). Once you have "Registered" you
will get all the info you just entered presented on a yellow/brown screen.

Hints for Entering your Information onto our Web System
You CANNOT cut and paste from another web site onto
our web editing screen. The computer language may be different. You CAN cut and
paste from a word processing screen like WordPerfect or WORD. If you do have
information on another web site that you want to transfer on to ours, you MUST FIRST
cut and paste into WORD and then from WORD into our information screen.
The last four screens are “wrap around”. This means
that you DO NOT hit ENTER on your keyboard UNLESS you want a new paragraph.
Don’t worry if you visually see a long never ending sentence. Our system will
adjust automatically for display.
If the “Rental Rate” box is NOT completed your information
will NOT load into our system.
There is an automatic time-out of 45 minutes for
each session and in order not to lose your entered information you must click
the bottom of the screen. Better still we suggest that you complete
all your information entry in a word processing program and then copy and paste
onto our system.
Make our Search Engine work for you
last 3 boxes for entering your property information are: Description, Amenities and
Activities. Each of these entry boxes has the word SEARCH ENGINE (above the
box). This means that ANY word entered in these 3 boxes is searchable by our
engine. We are providing examples that you can tailor to work for you.
Description - Many countries have well
known regions that visitors may want to holiday and vacation at. The Tuscany
region of Italy and Provence in France are two such examples. By inserting
these words in your Description, your property will be brought up in a search.
Amenities - Include words that will
enhance the search. If you are close to shopping, theatres and well known
sights in the vicinity of your property or anything else that a visitor to your
listing may enter for a search, then add these words to your text and this will
bring up your property in the search.
Activities – Besides the standard ones
like golf, tennis, etc., look at some of the lesser known ones that your region
offers that will bring up your property during a search.
Photographs - The pictures that you display should have a "wow"
and captivating effect that will make the viewer want to read further about
your property. Look at a cruise brochure. Typical pictures displayed are
captivating scenes of the various ports of call or of activities available on
board the ship. They normally do not display pictures of a cabin interior
since it is assumed that the time spent in a cabin is just for sleeping.
This has obviously worked for them. So get it to work for you!
Updating Information - At any time you can update both your listing and
your personal information. To do this you must first go to the purple banner
and click on “Property Owner”. Enter your UserName and password and click on
takes you to a brown/yellow screen with your personal info and below it will be
your property listing. Click on the appropriate “Update” button to change info
on yourself or property listing.
