How Airbnb Creates Value

Item Type Book Section

A business model is like an ultrasound for businesses: it provides – from the outside – detailed insight into six vital elements of a business which explain their functioning (Chapter 3). Each peer-to-peer accommodation network is slightly different and requires an independent business model analysis. Here we analyse the business model of Airbnb because it is the international market leader in peer-to-peer accommodation trading and a model other platforms aspire to. We focus on value proposition, creation, communication and transfer. The other two elements (value capture and dissemination) are discussed in Chapter 5.
