* SPECIAL ARRANGEMENT CAMPAIGNS are when advertisers do not host any of our ads on their websites nor do they pay for our services, or us for theirs. Here is the basic criteria to participate in a Special Arrangement Campaign - one of two options:

Option A Option B
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. 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. 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 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). 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. 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.
