THE STORY:

The general concept
Greece is under big trouble right now. With thousands of jobs in danger, I decided to make an effort to promote Greece in details. I mean every little destination, in areas where Greece is not promoted well. There are thousands of destinations in Greece full with beauty and quite affordable. Especially mainland, apart the islands.

Thus I created the www.the-preferred-guest.com website. This website serves articles and visual material from different destinations n Greece. Either this is a small village known for its miraculous waters, or splendid wines, or hospitality.

Every article comes from actual research and personal experiences. I go through websites, blogs, personal opinions, amateur photos. Everything that shows the personal experience and the combination of different people's experiences.

At the end an article is born literally from scratch! Every single article aims to promote every little destination. Thus, eventually, to help to sustain tourism related jobs. There are hundrends of different jobs related with Tourism in Greece, as it is one of our main business.

This project will definitely help to support this goal! There is no doubt in my mind that it will!

Why am I raising money?
I am raising money for being able to have more free time to research further, go deeper in details and find suitable content for this cause. Many things need to be thoroughly researched, purchased and technology takes some costs also. Apart that there are many journalists specialied in tourism (also a profession hit by the economic austerity) who wish to help this grow. Yet, they need money to pay the bills and these I don't have now. But I will with your help! With each individual help, we will make it happen!

Why? Because it is for a good cause and aims to help -eventually- several thousands of people! When I started this project people got thrilled! More and more will help and join in many forms, since they see it grow!

The money collected will "make room and time" for research, they will go towards research for content, paying vendors, marketing (in Google, Bing, Social Media, small video productions, podcasts, online communities, and more) purchase of photography from local photographers, expenses to conduct agreements with local private sector authorities, meetings and events and promotion of this concept! Also, these money will help to enlarge the network of journalists and provide fees for content translation from Greek to English!

Supporters can also help by sharing this cause and mention the: www.the-preferred-guest.com website.

This project will succeed! It will succeed no matter what, as I am determined to work more towards projects who aim to help society. And my close one is this country and people who work in it. I have huge experience in Hospitality marketing and this project was born after many many discussions I had with the problems Hoteliers and workers have, plus the lack of good marketing from our public authorities!

Private sector and private efforts will (once more) drive the country forward!

My background comes from IT and especially marketing services. I know what I am doing and I need resources. Thus, I post the whole cause here!!!

Go on! Donate! Whatever you can afford and see the project grow! I will also post the progress and marketing actions -based upon the budget I collect from donations- in the www.the-preferred-guest.com
