HomeAway's Larger Photo Viewer with "Pin it"

Clear, eye-catching photos are arguably the most important aspect of your listing.  Now potential guests can see larger images when browsing your photos on HomeAway.com.   Plus, we’ve added a “Pin it” button from Pinterest to each of your pictures to make sharing easier, and offer you an additional marketing tool.

The Pin it button is a great way for travelers to save their favorite property photos, and share them with their Pinterest followers.  You can even use this new feature to market your rental home, and gain more visibility for your HomeAway listing.   

Here’s how:

  • Click the Pin it button for one of your images 
  • Add it to a board on Pinterest.  (Don’t have a Pinterest board for your vacation rental yet?  Learn how to create one today).
  • Your followers and other Pinterest users can see your photo, and repin it to their own boards.
  • Check back to see how many people repin your picture!  

People are on Pinterest to discover, share, and remember.  Help your property get noticed on the fastest growing social network in history, and the 4th largest website traffic driver in the world. 

Here’s an image of what it looks like on HomeAway.com.  Visit your listing today to check out your larger photos!  For information on how to upload the best photos for the new larger photo viewer, visit our help topics on photos, or check out best practices in the Community.
