bnbfinder on Wheel of Fortune
Have you often dreamed of being on national television in front of 11 million potential guests? Janice Hurley and her predecessors at BedandBreakfast.com first discovered the opportunity to feature B&Bs in prize packages on Wheel of Fortune, and now bnbfinder will continue the tradition of supporting the B&B industry with an important reminder about the B&B choice for travelers.
Each B&B prize spot on Wheel of Fortune is like a 30 second advertisement, which is typically valued at over $80,000! Your inn or B&B can be featured on a prize package description with a script you approve and video you provide. Best of all, there’s no cost to innkeepers who participate beyond the actual prize – a six or seven night stay with breakfast.
How do I sign up?
In order to get on the show, you must…
- Be an active paid member of bnbfinder. If your subscription has expired please login and renew or purchase a subscription.
- Provide a free 6-7 night prize package for two at your inn/B&B. You must commit to providing a free 6 night stay for two at your inn with breakfast each morning at no charge to the winner. bnbfinder or other sponsors will provide the cost of the flight for two. Best of all, If someone does not win the prize the night your B&B is on, then you don’t have to pay anything, yet you still receive all that national promotion.
- Provide video footage of your inn– XDCam is the preferred format of video, however Wheel of Fortune also accepts HDCam, DVCPro, DVCam, MiniDV and DigiBeta. You can either mail or send the video footage through the Wheel of Fortune FTP site. For additional information regarding video footage format guidelines, please email Janice Hurley at email@example.com. Wheel of Fortune does require video footage for these prize promotions. In their words, “the palm trees must move in the wind…”.
- Provide your logo– In a .eps file format, please.
- Provide promotional text for announcer’s script– A sample script is below to give you an idea of how much time the announcer has to talk about your inn and bnbfinder.
