Our listings have increased, we now have 635 home exchange listings and 110 rental listings. We have set a target of over 1,000 home exchange listings before we start charging membership fees, this will probably
take another 18 months to achieve with the type of traffic we are sending to the website.
Once we have paying members we will then start to use google ads as well which will increase the sign up
rate significantly, one new website which was launched this year has achieved just over 1,000 listings over
the 12 month period using google ads but you do need a big advertising budget to do this.
The website is still free which does give people a chance to try this type of holiday with out having to pay a fee up front.
