People Like Us is a new home swap network that launched this year. They’ve just announced that the network is only going to be free until the end of October. People signing up after November 1 will pay an annual membership fee. Those who get in before this deadline will get the first year free.
There’s no info about what the fee will be. But if you’re considering joining this network, now is the time to do it.
From the announcement:
“Since we launched on the 1st of April this year we’ve come a long way. We now have hundreds of members and a thriving community. But, we have big goals. We want this site to be the best. We want it to give you the biggest choice and the best opportunity to find your home swap. We need to grow and we need to invest in the site and in advertising to find new members. Over this next year we’ll be introducing guest points to help non-simultaneous exchanges, new languages, better search facilities, desired destinations, identity verification, skype, and lots of other new features. To help offset this, we’ll be introducing a small annual fee for new members from the 1st of November, a month from now. Join and list your home now and you’ll receive your first year free, until 31 October 2019. To receive a free year of membership, you must join before 1 November and list and activate your home.”
Read my review of this new network for more info. They’ve made some updates since I wrote that review including launching a Facebook group, World Home Swap, translating the website into French, and appointing local ambassadors in a few parts of the world. My listing, which I just activated this week, was #158 on the network, which is quite open about their small size and ambitious growth plans.
