Resort in Siargao says ‘not interested’ to influencers

By: - 03/28/2019

A RESORT in Siargao has refused to have anything to do with social media influencers.

In a post that has received mix reactions from netizens, White Banana Beach Club Siargao said,

“We are receiving many messages regarding collaborations with influencers, Instagram influencers. We kindly would like to announce that White Banana is not interested to ‘collaborate’ with self-proclaimed ‘influencers.’ And we would like to suggest to try another way to eat, drink, or sleep for free. Or try to actually work.”

After the post went viral, the resort owners explained they were not referring to all vloggers/bloggers, particularly those who pay for their accommodation.

“Good day everyone. Our post went viral.  But we want to clarify that we are not against INFLUENCERS. Just against freeloaders. A REAL influencer is called as such by the rest, he does not address him/herself as an influencer. They are bloggers. We have actually collaborated with a few of them, in different terms and conditions, and we support them. There are real influencers, that in case we will contact and pay or offer. But look what, they’ve never contacted us, beside the very beginning, as they don’t need us. We need them.”

“Coming from someone who does marketing and advertising for a living, i totally agree with you. We never responded to “self-proclaimed influencers” who come to us for x-deals, et al. We do extensive social listening, market intelligence, and we determine reach and engagement per influencer before “we reach out to them”. The use of the word “influencer” has become abused these days.” commented by Fonzie Palec.

” I agree with this ❤️ I understand your point. Kaya as much as possible I refrain from emailing brands tlaga for collaborations. Kasi it is more rewarding pag sila mismo nakarecognize ng talent mo.” said Mary Joyce Vallejos Salvador

Another netizen said if formal naman ang approach it deserves a formal rejection.

“If these people formally sent you a message, I think they deserve a formal rejection as well. Not like this.  I do blog tho. I have a full time job, and I work hard to be able to travel so I can have a content. I recently tried pitching to resorts and hotels, because why not right? There’s no harm in trying naman, and if you know that you have something to offer on the table it’s never a bad thing to try. That’s all. Thanks for coming to my ted talk. Cho.” sey ni Jovelyn Mateo
