Welcome to Shasta Lakeshore Retreat, where unforgettable memories are made both at and around the lake. We believe in the power of collaboration and mutually beneficial relationships. If you have a proposal that can enhance our guests’ experiences and encourage more stays, we want to hear from you!

  1. Advertising Partnerships

Discover the beauty of Shasta Lakeshore Retreat through advertising partnerships. We prefer a commission-based structure, allowing you to earn a percentage on each booking generated through your advertising efforts. Unique discount codes can be utilized to track success and ensure fair compensation. We are not interested in general space advertising; make a proposal if you are interested!

  1. Joint Marketing Initiatives

Let’s join forces to amplify the allure of Shasta Lakeshore Retreat and your product or service equally (as long as it makes sense)! Whether through social media collaborations, blog features, or exciting giveaways, let’s engage our audiences together and create a network of support to attract more guests to our cozy retreats while increasing your business.

We can also customize any of our current marketing materials to include your name.  Examples include PDF brochures and more.

  1. Collaboration with Event Planners

Are you a travel agent, wedding planner, family reunion organizer, work retreat planner, or church events coordinator? We’re excited to explore opportunities to co-promote or offer commissions for business referrals for our ten homes which can support groups up to 140 in size.
We can also work with various types of other retreats including yoga, meditation, sports groups and more.  Our customizable discount codes make it easy to track and reward your contribution to making Shasta Lakeshore Retreat the preferred choice for getaways. If you are interested, we can provide a code and commission rate.

  1. Co-Authorship of Blogs

Share your passion for travel and hospitality by co-authoring blogs that showcase the best of Shasta Lakeshore Retreat and your product or service. These blogs can be featured on both our website and yours, reaching new audiences and highlighting the unique experiences we both offer. We are also willing to share any current blogs we have created for your use as well as being available to create new ones for you.  For examples of our blogs, please visit us at Shasta Lakeshore Retreat Blogs for travel related and/or Vacation 4 Rent Blogs for property management and host topics.

  1. Collaborative Flyers with Restaurants, Bars, and Stores

If you create (or have us create) enticing flyers or discount coupons to encourage a visit to your local restaurant, bar, store, or service, we can make them available to our guests. This can be in the form of a physical flyer or something on our website. In return, you can place our flyer for your guests to see. It’s a simple yet effective way to cross-promote and benefit both parties.

  1. Partnering with Local Events

    8. Destination Awareness: Unveiling the Hidden Gem of Shasta Lake

At Shasta Lakeshore Retreat, we are passionately committed to unveiling the unparalleled beauty and experiences that the Shasta Lake area has to offer. Our mission extends beyond providing exceptional accommodations; it is about transforming perceptions and fostering awareness about this hidden gem.

In particular, we’ve observed a common sentiment among residents of the San Francisco Bay Area, where the spotlight often shines on Tahoe while Shasta Lake remains undiscovered. Many Bay Area residents either lack awareness of this breathtaking destination or perceive it as too distant. Contrary to this misconception, Shasta Lake is not only accessible but boasts a more convenient drive than the popular Tahoe, with less traffic congestion.

Importantly, the journey to Shasta Lake is not just about accessibility; it’s also about affordability. The costs associated with travel and stay in Shasta are significantly more budget-friendly than those associated with Tahoe. Our goal is to convey that a spectacular, nature-filled getaway need not come with an extravagant price tag.

The reality is that Shasta Lake is a mere 3-4 hour drive from various locations in the Bay Area, making it an easily reachable and affordable escape. We believe this narrative extends beyond the Bay Area to Southern California and neighboring states like Oregon, Nevada, and Arizona. Our aim is to bridge this awareness gap, emphasizing the cost-effective allure of Shasta Lake as a viable and inviting destination.

We actively seek opportunities to collaborate with like-minded organizations and entities interested in the shared mission of educating and drawing visitors to Shasta Lake. We understand the potential positive impact on the local economy and the enriching experiences that await those who explore this hidden gem.  This might be other organizations with the same objective or government tourist organizations in the area.  We can offer help with articles, testimonies, photos, videos and more.

While we acknowledge the challenge inherent in altering established travel patterns, we embrace this task with enthusiasm. Through strategic partnerships and collaborative efforts, we aspire to bring more visitors to Shasta Lake, creating a ripple effect of economic growth and enabling guests to savor all the wonders our region has to offer.

Embark on this journey with us, as we strive to elevate Shasta Lake from a hidden treasure to a must-visit destination, making it the go-to choice for those seeking unparalleled beauty, memorable experiences, and an affordable escape.

    9. Additional Listing Sites:

In our current setup, we leverage Airbnb and VRBO, complemented by OwnerRez as a direct connection on our website. However, we are open to exploring additional listing sites under the following conditions:

A. Integration with OwnerRez: Any additional listing site must seamlessly connect with OwnerRez, ensuring streamlined operations and eliminating the need for maintaining separate sites.

B. Pricing Model: We are specifically interested in platforms that offer either a free or commission-based model. Please note that we are not inclined to pay any annual fees for inclusion on a listing site. We prioritize cost-effective solutions that align with our business strategy based on results.

If your platform meets these criteria, we invite you to share more information and discuss potential collaborations. We appreciate your understanding of our preferences and look forward to exploring mutually beneficial opportunities.

     10. Software Automation & Marketing Services:

Given the constraints of operating within the Vacation Rental industry’s tight budgets, we understand the importance of judiciously choosing tools and services. At present, we utilize OwnerRez for reservations along with their associated damage protection services. While our commitment to OwnerRez is steadfast, we remain open to receiving clear and detailed proposals for alternative damage protection programs. It’s worth noting that we currently do not employ any electronic welcome book (relying on PDFs, binders, and our website), lack an automatic lock code generator, and do not utilize welcome screens on the TV. If you have innovative proposals aligning with the aforementioned services, we welcome your suggestions.

     11. Social Media

Our presence extends across various platforms, including Instagram, Facebook, LinkedIn, and Twitter. While we often receive offers to boost our follower count for a fee, our primary focus is on translating these engagements into bookings for our homes. In considering proposals for purchasing additional social media followers, we adhere to the following conditions:

A. Pay for Results: We firmly believe in paying for actual results rather than upfront promises. If you have a proposal, kindly state the price for the increase in followers that we will pay after it is accomplished. Requests centered on prepayment with an anticipated follower count are not of interest. We prioritize transparency and tangible outcomes.

B. Real Followers Only: Our interest lies in genuine followers who engage authentically. We are not interested in acquiring empty or irrelevant followers who are merely in it for the numbers. Quality is paramount over quantity in our pursuit of a meaningful online community.

Additionally, we welcome programs where you feature our properties on your platforms. In such arrangements, we are open to compensating you through either a commission or credits for future stays. This compensation will be contingent on actual bookings generated by customers using a special code. This approach ensures a fair and measurable partnership where both parties contribute to the success of our vacation rentals.

We appreciate your understanding of our criteria and look forward to exploring social media collaborations that align with our values and goals.
