Special Campaigns – Accommodation Type Only

ItemDescription
Special Campaigns - Accommodation OnlySpecial Campaigns for owners of places of accommodation.
Who is this ideal for?This is limited, and the only option, to businesses offering accommodation of all sorts (resorts, lodges, hotels, guest houses, etc). Your business will receive exposure to visitors from all over South Africa and even some international visitors.
Where do we host your banner ads?We host banners of your Accommodation-type business on various South African websites, including the site of the organisation you are a member of. On top of that, we will also appoint reviewers to spent some time at your establishment upon which a review will be hosted on our travel blog as well as other participating accommodation listing websites where applicable. Furthermore, we also have published many reviews of establishments in specific magazines and newspapers and should your establishment meet the criteria set by the publishers we will also submit our review to these publishers for their consideration – an added bonus should they accept our submission.
Who provides the banners?You can provide us with your banner you designed yourself or we can design some very basic banner using text, photos and graphics we obtain from your web site.
What is the banner criteria?We use banners meeting the following criteria (if which we will use one of each during each campaign):
* 120px X 120px at 72dpi (jpg, png, gif or animated gif) AND / OR
* 468px X 60px at 72dpi (jpg, png, gif or animated gif) AND / OR
* 250px X 300px at 72dpi (jpg, png, gif or animated gif).
What is the site criteria?No sites or banners suggesting sex, pornography, racism, hate-speech, any types of drugs or related substances, any political activities or affiliation, banners depicting violence or children (unless the site is specifically children related e.g. a crèche, etc).  We reserve the right to amend these at any time and also not to approve sites and or banners not mentioned here.
What is the pricing?There will be cost involved but in the form of free accommodation and access for the sake of reviewing your establishment. No cash payment either way.
What are the pricing options?There are two pricing options, one a once-off transaction, one of permanent arrangement.
What are the details of the once-off pricing option?Your business offers accommodation of any type within South Africa. We may do different reviews for different types of accommodation e.g. chalet vs camping vs luxury tent vs lodge vs hotel – please specify which type of accommodation you need to have reviewed when you invite us.
You provide two nights of free accommodation to myself and my wife, or one of our appointed reviewers and partner, in exchange for four years free banner advertising at 33% of standard campaign weight.
This comes to one night per person per year – limited to two appointed people. For example one reviewer or two reviewers will visit your establishment for a weekend, write a review, publish your review, and your banners will start running for four years on all our participating web sites (some are still in development and more will be added).
To insure extension of your ads with no interruption you will have to invite us at least one year before expiry of your ads to do another visit.
In all cases where you provided accommodation we will write a review AT NO COST TO YOU and publish it on our travel blog at besembek.co.za – with a link back to your website OR facebook page. If reviews already exist it will be updated or replaced.
In all cases where you provided accommodation to us will we list you, if your accommodation falls in an appropriate category, on permacamp.co.za, agristays.co.za, and / or plaasplekke.co.za. If listings already exist it will be updated or replaced.
Furthermore, should your establishment meet the criteria for publication in a national magazine (reviewing for them since 2013) or newspaper (reviewing for them since 2018), both also have an established online and social media presence, we will submit a review for consideration by the respective editors – a substantial monetary bonus should you be published by one, or both of them. We always make hard work of this in order to give you the maximum benefit and exposure.
In most cases accommodation will be required during weekends as we work full time. In odd occasions we will use mid-week stays when travelling during a review trip.
You will provide us with three banners meeting criteria as below. If you have no skills or equipment to design your own banners we will be able to assist with very basic design at no extra cost.
Advertising will start running upon return of visit.
Summary: This is a once-off transaction. Terminates after four years with a campaign weight of 33%. Your cost is accommodation for one person per night per year.
What are the details of the permanent pricing option?Your business offers accommodation of any type within South Africa. We may do different reviews for different types of accommodation e.g. chalet vs camping vs luxury tent vs lodge vs hotel – please specify which type of accommodation you need to have reviewed when you invite us.
You provide on average one night of free accommodation per one person per year. This will be utilised by myself and my wife, sometimes accompanied by close family (and obviously within boundaries of the type accommodation you offer), OR one of our appointed reviewers and a partner, in exchange for banner advertisements at 50% of standard campaign weight. This agreement will be in place until one of us terminate with reasonable period.
This comes to one night per person per year – limited to persons described above and capacity of your accommodation. For example you have available a chalet equipped for six people. My wife and I go out to your place for a review over a weekend and with prior arrangement we invite my dad with. This comes to two nights X three persons = six years. Six years of free banner advertising for you.
To insure extension of your ads with no interruption you will have to invite us at least one year before expiry of your ads to do another visit. However, since we have a permanent agreement in place we will let your ads run until such time we mutually can agree on a date for a repeat visit.
In all cases where you provided accommodation we will write a review AT NO COST TO YOU and publish it on our travel blog at besembek.co.za – with a link back to your website OR facebook page. If reviews already exist it will be updated or replaced.
