We have been approached by blogger Misha Gillingham from Wildluxe travel blog. She is offering an exchange: 3 nights for a video and photo feature on her blog and social medias. She is coming to NZ Nov 17 - Dec 1, 2017. Her Media kit.
She would be traveling with one other person who would assist her with photos/video.
In regards to use of the images and video she creates, we would have use of 5 images and one 60 second video. If we wanted her to film or shoot anything on top of that, she offers packages that can be purchased with unlimited usage.

Search Engine Optimization
Made a lot of small changes behind the scenes. We need to wait a month for changes to be updated on search engines.
Customer satisfaction survey
Found an iPad app called Elegant Survey. It's free if only connected to one device. It gives you stats and a way to gather info. Might need to rethink the questionnaire.
