Welcome to the IndependentOwners.com’s Blog… IndependentOwners.com is the free Internet service for property owners worldwide. This aim of this blog is to provide regular updates on the IndependentOwners.com service, tips on optimization, progress reports on new developments and general hints and ideas for helping owners with the business of holiday rentals.

Whether you own a villa in Cyprus, self catering Bulgaria villas, English country cottages or Mexico vacation rentals IndependentOwners.com can provide you with your own dedicated website absolutely free. Our self-build website tool is capable of pleasing even the most experienced or timid of computer user. Aided by a bespoke content management area (if you can use Microsoft Word or send an email then it will be simple to use) IndependentOwners.com offers the opportunity for owners of holiday rental properties to create a dedicated, comprehensive and updatable website, complete with its own marketable domain name… FREE OF CHARGE.
Every website has optional pages and can include over 50 photographs to showcase your holiday property; unlimited text to provide a full description; an interactive location map; an ‘at-a-glance’ availability management tool plus much more.

Changes can be made immediately to all the property details, photos, pricing and availability online at anytime from any PC anywhere with the dedicated Content Management Area.

And because you will have your own unique domain name you can use it to promote and market your property in any media – e.g. online listings, villa directories, newspaper/magazine advertising, online classifieds, links to and from websites, word of mouth or even a card on a works notice board.

The Internet has developed rapidly over recent years and has changed many aspects of life. The way in which consumers research their travel decisions has been revolutionised and offering web based information has become an increasingly important means of promoting rental properties.

The team at IndependentOwners.com has been together since 2005 and each member of the team strives to reach a common goal – to make the Internet and internet marketing for rental property owners, as simple and as accessible as possible. Our belief is that everybody, regardless of computer knowledge, design skills or income, should have the opportunity to own and manage a professional website so that they can compete in the online market with the corporate powerhouses.

We have offices in the UK (Optimization team and customer service team), USA (design team), Spain (sales and product development) and Lithuania (technical team). The Internet provides us with the ability to communicate internally as if we were working in an open plan office… a huge open plan office though!!

Our first customer website went live in November 2005 and then followed the official launch with a promotion in April 2006 in A Place in the Sun Magazine. Then through a targeted marketing campaign and word-of-mouth (the best marketing possible), IndependentOwners.com has grown into a thriving business attracting interest from both property owners and those corporate powerhouses who wish to target owners and holidaymakers alike.

Originally a subscription based service, IndependentOwners.com became a completely free website building product in October 2006 as income began to be generated consistently by advertisers and sponsors.

IndependentOwners.com is a subsidiary of Portman Solutions and was formed in early 2005 with the aim of creating a solution that would allow property owners worldwide the opportunity to own and manage their own website completely free of charge.

Using this successful template and business model, Portman Solutions are also entering into other markets to provide complimentary websites for those that require an easy and simple-to-use website building tool at no cost. An example of this is a dedicated online gallery for artists, photographers, sculptors, graphic designers et al to showcase their work. BuildMyGallery.com is provided for students, amateurs and professionals who wish to have a presence online.
