Airbnb is like any application—with each iteration, developers add new bells and whistles, and it’s your responsibility to keep up or risk falling behind your competition. That said, Airbnb often releases product updates randomly and to only certain hosts (e.g. hosts in a certain location), which can be a frustrating experience for those who want take advantage of new functionality to maximize their listing’s potential.
As a former Airbnb employee in the Finance and Local Operations department, Danny Rusteen recognized host pain points and made it his mission to understand Airbnb’s idiosyncrasies and determine how hosts can make smarter choices to reach their goals.
To do this, Danny drew upon his professional and personal Airbnb experiences (he’s been a host since 2013) to perfect the art and science of an attractive listing. His research became a guide for his own work, and he wanted to share his recipe for success with other hosts. With that mission in mind, he founded a San Francisco based Airbnb property management company in 2016.
To best serve his customers, Danny strove to keep his knowledge fresh through hosting (he became a Superhost in 2016 with over 200 reservations), renting (as of now, Danny has rented Airbnb listings in over 14 countries), and continuing his duties as an Airbnb property manager dedicated to host success (he’s managed over 50 listings). Needless to say—Danny’s seen the gamut of Airbnb listings and credits these experiences as critical factors that helped cultivate host trust in his services.
Seeking to take the host Airbnb experience a step further, Danny leveraged his experiences as a host, guest, and Airbnb property manager to found OptimizeMyAirbnb.com in 2016. Also based out of San Francisco, OptimizeMyAirbnb.com offers services to “Supercharge Your Listing”. Through the site’s main product, the Listing Optimization Report, hosts receive a detailed analysis that outlines suggested improvements by section to increase listing rank.

If you’ve visited OptimizeMyAirbnb.com, you’ll notice a bold claim on the homepage: “You’ll earn 627% more in one week.” This figure is based on full listing optimizations, which includes the Listing Optimization Report plus an additional service, (Full Optimization). With this service, Danny makes all recommended changes from the report on your behalf, plus he edits all text (descriptions, photo captions, house manual, etc.), rearranges all photos, deletes unneeded photos, and creates your guidebook (while saving all original content and settings). After Full Optimization, Danny then provides a summary of the changes and monitors the listing’s stats over the following seven days to track metrics and ensure host satisfaction. After optimizing over 250 listings, Danny is confident in the claim that with Full Optimization, a listing of (for example) $100 per night, can expect to earn about $627 in the first seven days.
