How can I optimise my listing?

To help you have the best possible experience on Fat Llama, we’ve put together five tips to help you generate as many rentals on your items as possible:

1. Take great photos of your items

The better your snaps, the more rentals you’ll get. Llamas like being able to see what they’re booking, so the more pics, the merrier. Oh, and stock photos make llamas cry (and attract less interest from renters) so make sure you take your own.

Photos in 4:3 ratio will look the best! 800px x 600px will look great, but the bigger the better!

2. Set your prices low

What you charge is up to you, but lower prices often mean a higher overall rental income - they encourage longer and more frequent rentals. To begin with, look at how similar items are priced and start towards the lower end of the scale.

3. Describe your items accurately

Write a title and description that would match what potential renters might search for. Describe the specifications, compatibility and condition of your item as accurately as possible.

4. Show us the real you

Upload a photo and a short bio to your profile to help the rest of the herd know who you are. Llamas with profile photos get 60% more rental enquiries than those without. Say cheese.

5. Maintain a fast response time

Llamas love speedy replies. When a renters messages you or requests your item, get back to them as soon as you can, whether you can fulfil the rental or not.
