Becky Fischer - I have worked for WeNeedaVacation.com since 2003 and have lived in Brewster with my husband and three children since 2006. I grew up outside of Boston, spent summer vacations on Nantucket, and was married in Orleans. My favorite activities on the Cape are walking on the CCRT, deep breaths at the beach, oystering, yoga classes, and working with my community to support the schools and local events. Wearing several hats at work, I offer photography and video services to homeowners, work closely with the Chambers of Commerce, promote the site through social media, and distribute thousands of buckets, frisbees and lawn signs! You should see my garage! Email Becky


  • Pinterest is really a nice way to share the things. I have a vacation rental business and I keep sharing the updates and latest images to my pinterest boards and get a lots of good leads from there. It is a great way to tell people about your business and your services.

  • Hello Heather,
    Sorry for the belated reply to your post. Thanks for engaging with us here and on twitter! Yes, pictures are so important to a listing. We tell homeowners to use their best image for Pinterest, average pictures won’t suffice. We just held our Homeowner Forums and continue to push excellent pictures. We offer a photography service which some of our homeowners use. Take care,

  • Great post Becky – particularly the point about using only the best images. I’ve seen so many vacation rental Pinterest boards that show mediocre photographs that are more of a turn-off. Remember that Pinterest is big because it promotes the best and most desirable in photography and makes people want to Like and Repin to their boards. It’s a great motivator to get more critical about images used on a vacation rental web site, and to improve them.
