Project Steps

  • Read and understand all project related documents - Training Guidelines, Training Videos, FAQs.
  • During Weekdays: Go through the List of Hotels / Restaurants provided to you by the Project Manager and Contact the Hotel/ Restaurant Manager via Call to educate them about TripAdvisor, Its Co-Branding Initiative and Get an Appointment from the interested Hotels/ Restaurants when you should visit them to complete the co-branding processes.
  • During Weekends/ Off Days: On the scheduled appointment date & time,
    1. Meet the Hotel managers and get direction and permission on where the Stickering is to be done
    2. Once the stickering is done, you are expected to take pictures of the Hotel or Area of the Hotel where the Sticker has been pasted (Refer to Stickering Video)
    3. Upload the Pictures & Hotel Details from the Hotel's location onto an App which TripAdvisor will provide. (The project manager will train you on how to use the App before the project starts)
    NOTE: In case you were not able to generate appointments during the week, you will be expected to do walk-ins to the Hotels/ Restaurants allocated to you so as to achieve your targets.
  • Similarly, visit and complete the Co-Branding (Stickering) for 20 such Hotels / Restaurants in the area allocated to you (Around 5 - 6 per week over 4 weeks). You should try stickering at least 30 Hotels / Restaurants, so that even if some are Rejected by the TripAdvisor Team, at least 20 out of them will come out as "Approved" and your target will be completed.
  • Note: The TripAdvisor Stickers that will be provided to you by the Project Manager is for your use during the project period only. Any leftover stickers remaining with you after completion of the project targets or in case you are dropping out from the project, need to be returned to the Project manager within 1 week of your exit from the project/ internship.
