Project Steps

  • Go through the List of Hotels / Restaurants provided to you by the Project Manager and Contact the Manager (via Call) to discuss the following:
    1. Tell them about their current Ratings & Reviews on TripAdvisor.
    2. Tell them that the next step in their engagement with TripAdvisor is to showcase TripAdvisor's Sticker on their Hotel's Front door, Reception Desk, or any other place that gets maximum eyeballs from visitors.
    3. Once convinced, get the confirmed Address of the Hotel where the Stickers should be couriered
    4. Courier the Stickers to the Hotel Manager and send a confirmation mail to the Hotel Manager with a copy marked to the Project Manager.
  • Once the Hotel Manager has received the courier,
    1. Call them up and tell them how the stickers are to be pasted and the photos that they should click and send to you for further approval purposes
    2. Follow up with the Hotel Manager subsequently until you get the photos from them
