"It's a no-brainer" said one of the founders. "We are offering owners and managers the same great service they receive from the pay-for-placement sites like VRBO & Homeaway. Not only that, but we broadcast our members listings to Facebook, Twitter, Myspace and more - and we do it all at no cost. We like to think of ourselves as the 'craigslist' of vacation rentals - with the added bonus that the listings do not expire - which is the main complaint we have heard from craigslist users."
As expected, Florida, Hawaii, California & Mexico are leading the way with listings. The lake states of Minnesota & Wisconsin are also filling up quickly. "I think people just like the simplicity and elegance of our application. It is extremely simple to use and it gives people exactly what they want without all of the fuss."
Mimbeo plans on continuing its growth through social and viral marketing. The site has seen traffic jump by more than 400% since launch and plans to introduce new features in the coming months. More information:
