I have read a number of you bemoaning the loss of Power Host status. But I am wondering how much difference it really makes in terms of gaining bookings. I have had it, lost it, and gotten it back again. The reason for losing it was insufficient bookings (while I had it) The reason for getting it back again was enough bookings (while i didn’t have it). So it would seem that how many bookings I received were not dependent on my Power Host status. Also, I wonder whether the guests really care about whether or not you’re a Power Host if they like what they see in your posting.
One thing I must admit: I do like the idea of being a Power Host. A long time ago I received from Peerspace a Power Host water bottle. It’s the closest thing to a trophy I ever got and I am considering mounting it and placing it on my mantel.
What are your experiences? Any thoughts?
