WHAT ABOUT SWIMPLY?
Swimply is an online marketplace for renting a private swimming pool as part of a staycation,' a term derived from the words ‘stay' and 'vacation’.' Domestic tourism refers to vacationing in one's own country rather than traveling. Staycations became popular as a result of the COVID-19 Pandemic.
Homeowners with a swimming pool can rent out their pool on an hourly basis to individuals or groups. Swimply's mobile app can be used to make reservations.
Swimply, an Airbnb-like platform for pool sharing, is to thank. It was billed as the "first online marketplace for pool sharing." Bunim Laskin, a 22-year-old New Jersey entrepreneur, created Swimply. Laskin created the app, which was released as part of the Pilot Program in the summer of 2018, to "democratize the pool experience so that everyone can enjoy an instant escape from reality."
Is Swimply used by anyone?
Swimply is a relatively new service, but I believe it has enormous potential. It's ideal for people who don't have backyard pools and don't want to deal with the maintenance and cost of owning a pool. It's even better for city dwellers who crave fresh air, particularly during the coronavirus pandemic.
Swimply is intended for whom?
Swimply is for anyone interested in renting and enjoying a pool by the hour. Whether you're looking to get in a few laps, hang out with friends, or spend some quality time with your family, if you're bored, as in the case of COVID-19, which came with a lot of boredom and everyone was asked to stay in the door. Swimply can also be useful for those who want to clear their minds of worries or people who are recovering from one illness or another just to make them feel good and honored (and even the pup if allowed by the Host can chill out by the pool).
Can I charge people to use my swimming pool?
Yes, pool owners charge an hourly rate of around $45, though this may vary depending on location, timing, and demand. Hosts can also decide how many people can use the pool at the same time, as well as whether to allow loud music, alcohol, or pets.
Swimply also requires an hour between bookings to allow hosts time to clean and sanitize, and all interactions must adhere to CDC guidelines. Furthermore, before being listed on the app, each pool is inspected for hygiene and safety by a local pool Service Company.
If you own a pool, you can join thousands of other pool owners in earning a good living.
You can simply cover the operating costs, profit on the other side, and make other people happy who do not own a pool without jeopardizing your own quality pool time.
If you want to rent a pool, begin by selecting a preferred location, requesting a pool at that location, waiting for approval, and then proceeding to confirm the booking.
You will not be charged for the pool until you confirm your reservation.
Pools with the clock icon can be booked immediately without having to wait for the approval.
You can easily chat with the pool owner, communicate, and coordinate much more easily using the swimplychat feature while maintaining complete data privacy.
Once the request has been approved and the confirmation has been sent, you will have access to all the information that is required, such as the address, entry and exit information, and things like the WI-FI password, among other things.
How to Become a Swimply Member.
You can create your personalized account on the official website if you are a pool owner who wants to rent it out to make extra money, or if you want to rent a pool with family and friends as a guest.
The platform is simple to use and understand; all necessary details and policies regarding insurance and other claims are clearly and simply explained for everyone to understand.
The renter service fee is typically 10% of the total pool rental cost.
The site does not charge the host any fees to list the pool.
The guests must sign a liability waiver to protect the pool owner.
Each pool owner determines his or her cancellation and refund policies.
Each time their pool is rented out, the host can request a payout. The host can withdraw funds via PayPal, direct deposit, electronic funds transfer, debit card, or prepaid card, as applicable.
What are the advantages of SWIMPLY?
Swimply PRONS ALSO
Swimply may, at its discretion, offer a discount on the host's listing price and even provide a promotional code to the guest. This calls into question the pool owner's decision to set their rate.
If a booking is made and the owner cannot provide the pool, there is a fee of up to $50 per half hour.
There are cancellation fees if the pool owner cancels a booking section at the last minute. This rule applies to the visitor as well.
One thing to know also is that they have a presence throughout the United State and many other countries as well with a lot of unprecedented growth with millions of customers from other countries as well.

Starting shopping early your more likely to find deals on items you want. Plan on waking up early (or staying up really late) to get those items you desire. Retailers want to keep shoppers in the stores all day long. So they sometimes offer late shopper deals in addition to the early bird offers. So watch the ads to find out which items will be discounted later in the day. Why not sleep in, and avoid the crowds and still score amazing deals. That's what I'm down for, no crowds, no lines and no limits it’s the best way to shop.

Never Stop Learning
Here’s a deal & opportunity that does not come around often. This opportunity falls in the continuing education department this week. An opportunity to learn from someone successful in the field of film-making. Spike Lee is teaming up with Master Class to offer a much broader audience, the opportunity to learn the ins & outs of the film making industry, from an accomplished individual who’s worn a lot of hats from writing, directing, acting etc. Spike Lee offers the chance to learn from his experiences, and help guide inspired filmmakers, actors, writers along their personal journey.
Spike has well over 30 years of experience and is opting to share his knowledge to aspiring filmmakers, and people of the arts. He chose Master class to expand his reach as many people may not be able to attend or sign up for his classes at NYU.
The online class with Lee is offering a chance to analyze his works both on the page and on screen, covering the technicalities of writing stories, working with actors, camera angles, financing, and choosing music score. He addresses the hurdles facing first-time filmmakers, and shares his own experience overcoming obstacles in the film industry. Lee also discusses how he has tried to affect culture with his movies, and he urges students to be conscious of the relationship between their work and the world.
Registration & enrollment in Spike Lee’s online class is $90 with lifetime access. Customers also have the option to pay $180 per year for unlimited access to all existing and upcoming classes, not just Spike Lee course but a host of tutorials from Werner Herzog (filmmaking), Hans Zimmer (film scoring), Steve Martin (comedy), Aaron Sorkin (screenwriting), and Shonda Rhimes (writing for television). Upcoming classes are scheduled from Martin Scorsese (filmmaking), Ron Howard (directing), Helen Mirren (acting), Samuel L. Jackson (acting), and Judd Apatow (comedy).

Now the film making and arts opportunity is not for everyone, so I have something that should cover the rest. Lynda is an online American education company that offers video courses taught by industry experts in just about everything you can think about. You can search Lynda and see a variety of courses offered. Lynda offers a free 30 day trial, which after 30 days if you don't find it useful, you can cancel. Lynda offers individuals the opportunity to continually improve on skills ranging from A to Z of the alphabet, and tutorials are continually being added. You learn from industry experts passionate about teaching. It is an affordable alternative if you are short on funds and have an appetite for learning and improving your skills.
Here's a 30 second commercial summarizing the Lynda online tutorial course: Click "Lynda.com"
Last but not least, I've saved something awesome for last. If you are into self teaching here’s an incredible free resource I stumbled upon, and would like to share it with you. I'm still in awe with all it has to offer. The website name is Open Culture, I encourage you to go check out the freebies and other beneficial things they have to offer.
