Marketing your Workamping opportunities by using just one method is similar to playing a round of golf with a limited set of clubs. The reason there are so many clubs with a normal set of golf clubs is to provide you with the best options for placing your game ball in the location you wish, with the greatest amount of efficiency.

Over the past couple of years, a trend has developed that is hurting the quality of many employers’ Workamper programs: Asking for a trade of hours per week, that if paid, would equal more dollars than what is charged any guest for the long term campsite.
SWO = Situations Wanted Online Ads ran by Workampers. Think of it as a reverse-engineered Hotline ad system. The Workamper can activate up to 75 words of text in the format of a Situations Wanted ad. This will provide Workampers another tool to more effectively market themselves, and Employers another avenue to discover the right applicant for their future opportunity.
New SWO ads will be posted as they come in and will run for two months. These online ads are in addition to the Situations Wanted ads in Workamper News magazine.
