Burlingame, CA (PRWEB) January 14, 2005
We8there.com, a well-known, internationally recognized restaurant and lodging review website, has announced the addition of business-sponsored advertisements. We8there is customarily a consumer-driven review website that has heretofore, not accepted advertisement from restaurants and lodging establishments for fear of creating a conflict of interest. According to Stanley Roberts, President and CEO of We8there Communications, the website has constantly entertained requests from the owners of establishments reviewed by their patrons about how they could advertise on the website. We8there has been redesigned to allow business owners to post their advertisements amongst the many reviews. One of the features is an automatic notification function, that notifies a business membership owner by email, if a We8there.com user reviews their business.
After conducting its own research, We8there has concluded that many restaurant and lodging establishment owners believe that it is important to receive feedback, both negative and positive from their customers and most agree that this is an excellent selling point for this unique advertisement relationship. We8there.comÂs new feature behaves much like a Âsecret shopperÂ by allowing the business owner to receive feedback from its customers. The business owner has 100% control of their advertisements using a specially designed administration tool, which means an advertisement can be adjusted at anytime, as needed, In addition the advertisement will not be a standard banner or button type advertisement, but will be integrated into the siteÂs total look to give it a better symmetry with We8there.comÂs exclusive design.
It is however, the low price for advertisement on this restaurant and hotel review website that is turning heads, with pricing for annual advertisement priced between $50 and $70 per year, respectively, depending on what features the purchaser desires. This aggressive pricing is virtually unheard of for such a high-traffic website. Mr. Roberts states that, Âadvertising should be effective, not expensiveÂ. We8there is targeting the small Âmom and popÂ companies that cannot afford typical high profile, expensive advertisement in addition to the large chain companies. Several large chain restaurants and hotels have contracted with We8there.com to promote their businesses.
We8there has also added another popular feature that will allow its users to use their cellular telephones with Internet browser access to find all local restaurants or lodging establishments within a 10-mile radius of any given zip code.
