The first impression counts

Let’s be honest: if you were choosing between these two 9flats profiles, which one would you contact?

If you went for the profile with the photo, you are not alone: a 9flats profile with a photo is clicked 10 times as much as one without a user photo.

The reason: photos stand for honesty and credibility and show that you are an open person with nothing to hide. That comes across to the community, and they click on your profile.

Profile photos also bring advantages for the guest and host: owners display mutual confidence and receive more bookings. A guest has a better chance to book the special deals when there is a large range of guests for the host to choose from.
