As president of IPA and publisher of IMPress Magazine, many think I get all sorts of benefits because of my position at IPA. The truth is that I have earned my reputation of doing the work and producing the articles, images and videos that companies and my readers appreciate. My background is in Sales, Marketing and Corporate Communications and a photographer since I was 8 years old. IPA has been a labor of love for me for 23 years, while working in other industries. Now IPA and IMPress have become full-time and I love it.
You are invited to see my articles and images on IMPress. You can see I do many product reviews, cover the New York scene and love to travel. One of my recent projects was sponsored by Royal Caribbean International. Up until last year, I was unsuccessful in bringing them on as a sponsoring company. Once I was able to show them what we do at IMPress now and some of our work, they were happy to provide me and my wife with a suite on the Independence of the Seas. They arranged for me to work with their Guest Relations manager and his assistant who arranged my interviews with many of the senior staff on this ship.
I hope you will take the opportunity to see this project that has a 30 minute video that is a tour of the ship narrated by the staff. This video has received close to 40,000 views a this writing and averages about 6,000 each month since its publication date.
Royal Caribbean is very happy with the project and we are looking forward to reviewing one of their largest ships, either the Allure or Oasis of the Seas…stay tuned.
I have traveled around the world, from the Amazon to Bangkok and have been upgraded to the suites at resorts and hotels alike. Blue Waters in Antigua, the Mirage Hotel in Las Vegas and many others. I love to cruise and have cruised on many great ships including Holland America Lines Nieuw Amsterdam who also sponsored our review and video which you can see here.
As you review my work and my product reviews, you will see that those resorts and businesses appreciate the work I have done for them and are more than happy to offer me the upgrades and VIP treatment that I have earned. Tamron featured me in their August 2012 Newsletter and you can see a reprint on our IMPress site now. I should mention that I also write articles and review local restaurants, who now refuse to take my money after a meal…Ah the benefits of membership are many.
If you do the work, you too will enjoy the benefits.
