We Are The Best Australian Short Stay Accommodation Web Site
OzShortStay was started in June
2001. In the past, you could go to any internet search engine and
look for Short Stay Accommodation and B&Bs and only have 6 results come up. Today, large search engines
index tens of thousands of accommodation related pages. We aim to be the most regarded
as THE standard for Australian Short Stay listings on
There are many other Australian Short Stay web sites on the
internet, but none have the power and simplicity of ozshortstay.com.au.
We have designed this site so that anyone can use it: from the latest
versions of Netscape/MS Internet Explorer/Firefox, to the oldest text browsers such
as Mosaic: They all work on our web site. You will NEVER see a "This site
optimized for Netscape" on our site. We won't alienate your potential next
client. It's a hard fact that many people browsing this site from overseas
do NOT have the latest internet technology at their disposal; some are a few
years behind in technology. No problem: everything will work on this web
We Are Inexpensive and Designed to Stay
We give you a complete colour listing for a
low fee of either $55 per year for a Standard membership or $99 per year
Blue Ribbon membership. Fee dependant on your
level of membership. Many others charge up to $500 without
having nearly the audience that we attract. We ONLY list
Australian Properties. Our format is simple, powerful and
internationally recognizable since we use graphics to represent data.
We have developed a proprietary database technology which allows us to
offer free information and search functionality
Our database technology generates the content of the web site
dynamically, as well as generating renewal letters, reports and other
statistics about this web site. It is all self contained within one program.
Many of our competitors create your web page by hand, tediously, without any
method of tracking the data that goes into those pages. You'd like your
description changed?, no problem, we edit your record in our database and it
goes online immediately, or you can edit your page with us using
BBProfiler right now and see how powerful and easy it is to use!
Our database can tell us, for example, who is up for renewal in August,
who has not renewed yet in July, how many people subscribed in the first
quarter of 2008 allowing us to forecast our advertising budget for the next
quarter, print reminder letters to overdue subscribers, generate your web
How does all of this technology affect you? All of these state of the art
techniques allow us to cut overhead and keep the price low. It only requires
2 people to manage this web site since we have developed such a powerful
database tool for tracking/adding Properties.
A good demonstration of this technology is upgrading your web page: For
example, we recently added more information to the web pages, "Which Credit
Cards Are Accepted". We have thousands of subscribers which normally means
having to edit thousands of web pages to add this information. Conventional
methods would require someone going into each web page and editing them to
add this information. But with our method, we simply modify our
BBProfiler engine to show "credit cards accepted" and instantly
thousands of subscribers on our site now contain this information.
You Have a Web Page Somewhere Else
Great! But will anyone ever find you? When
someone in Germany wants to find a Property in Australia, they
don't want to haphazardly look through random pages scattered across the
Internet. They would want to find a standard Property resource with
hundreds of searchable listings shown in a commonly understood format. This
is precisely what we provide.
A common analogy would be this: Say you had a nice poster advertisement
developed: anyone can develop the poster ad, but it's totally useless if you
take that ad and stick it on a sign post in your backyard. You would want
that poster to be plastered in every major travel shop available. We offer
you the poster (web page) and we offer to put it on our billboard (our web
As part of our subscription, we allow you an outside link to your other
web page at no extra cost. We would hate for those other web pages to go
unnoticed since you paid good money to have them developed!
We Have The Future In Mind
Our internet web site has been very
successful. Our future goals include affiliations with large Australian
internet content providers and perhaps a print book for people to carry
