Travelers who write a review of a hotel property on WhereToStay.com will have the chance to win an iPod nano MP3 Player through the company’s “Reward the Reviewer” program.
“We understand the busy lifestyle of the average consumer and appreciate the time and energy involved in writing a review of a recently-visited property,” said Thom Dunaway, founder and president of WhereToStay.com. “In an effort to show our gratitude for their efforts, we are giving away one iPod nano each quarter throughout 2006 to a randomly-selected consumer who submits a new property review,” he added.
WhereToStay.com is introducing marketing and promotion initiatives, such as the “Reward the Reviewer” program and its recently-launched six-month “Getaway Giveaway” consumer promotion (awarding a vacation prize valued at over $4,500), to heighten awareness and demonstrate the value of using WhereToStay.com as the primary research tool when looking for vacation accommodation options.
As the first travel website to feature traveler reviews, WhereToStay.com redefined the industry, giving travelers a voice and providing hotels with impartial feedback. The traveler review star-rating system points readers in the right direction, with unbiased and verifiable travel accounts. Reviews are closely monitored and tracked by an editing staff to ensure legitimacy and accountability.
Prospective vacationers interested in beginning their journey by browsing traveler reviews can navigate through the following methods: Recent Additions, Most Reviewed Properties and Pick by Location.
As an added feature an option to read reviews is always available with a click of the mouse wherever a property is listed in any part of the WhereToStay.com website.
