Why work with the Werkenntwen?
Werkenntwen offers quality content and photography. While she is a top travel blog for world travel (of around 40 countries), she also has an excellent reputation as an expert on India and she is often mentioned as a resource on top travel websites. She’s written an entire guide to India as well as a detailed guide to Goa. about traveling in Goa which has great reviews from people like Sharell Cook from About India.
Werkenntwen has a steady and always increasing amount of readers and a large and engaged social media following. Below is feedback from a few partners.
“From start to finish, working with Rachel was an absolute delight. We set out our expectations of her right from the start and she delivered way beyond, covering everything we hoped she would. Not only is she a pleasure to be with and get to know, she is also extremely professional and writes very authentically, intelligently and informatively. Not only was she able to post on her own blog, which has a strong following and excellent engagement rates (we use a tracking service that confirmed her numbers were very competitive with her influencer group of 5 people getting reaching over a combined 4 million people in the week of her tour), she also published on notable online magazines, such as Bravo.tv, and the like.”
“Emails started flowing in after Rachel’s sponsored post and when I asked how they heard of Jamboree, more than 65-70% of people said “Werkenntwen”. Even before this post, she wrote another where she mentioned Jamboree as 1 of 5 places to stay- which brought guests. At the moment 50% of occupied guests have come through Werkenntwen.”
“Rachel has been a terrific partner of ours for over the past two years. Her sales volume has tripled from when she began year over year. Rachel enjoys an average of 7% conversion; this is driven largely by great trust relationship with her audience and the robust and contextual integration. We are very grateful to have Rachel as a member of our partnership network here at World Nomads.”
“Rachel is an eager and positive writer, with a wellspring of story ideas that keep flowing. Although we typically work together with many time zones in between, Rachel is always in regular and accountable to commitments.”
“I wanted to tell you that I came to India for the first time last year. Before I left I was getting a lot of people saying things that were making me nervous about coming on my own as a female. I almost dropped out and cancelled for another destination but I found your blog and it gave me reassurance to come. Now I’m in India for the 3rd time and loving it!”
“Your blog has been an absolutely invaluable resource (and not to mention totally inspiring) as I am planning my trip to India. Your posts are so detailed, thorough, thoughtful, clear, and well-written. And you have knack posting about every single little one of the questions I had. Although those pre-travel jitters are sneaking up on me, thanks to you I am feeling confident about traveling as a solo female in India.”
