ATC’s hotel partners are usually open to influencers of varying expertise. However, there are also some hotel partners who are more particular about the influencers they select. From being based in a certain country to having at least a million followers to not having any requirements at all, watch out for such conditions under Sponsored Stay. So, before you click “Choose this Hotel”, make sure that you are what they’re looking for.

Don’t go overboard with the number of nights

While a five-day getaway would be awesome, free stays are only given for a maximum of three nights. They’re more than enough time for you to explore the hotel or resort, try out the facilities and truly experience what they have to offer.

Ensure your social profile is up to date and your content engaging

Is your profile up to date? Are you keeping up with social trends? Are you maintaining your feed? Is your content engaging? How many followers do you have? All these are important factors that help ATC hotel partners decide if they would like to work with you. Continue working at your engagement, content quality and follower count to improve your influence.

Propose video content instead

While photos are always good, videos are even better. As such, consider submitting a video output, which is more appealing to hotels, instead of photos.

With these four tips, soon you’ll be on your way to enjoying a sponsored stay at an ATC hotel partner!
