Calgary, Alberta, Canada, October 8, 2010 – With the launch of the online competition for a host of the “Paradise Hunter” Travel TV Series, ParadiseHunter.com has experienced explosive growth.
“The response has been incredible,” says Dennis Kambeitz, CEO and Founder of Paradise Hunter, “In the first 3 weeks of the competition we’ve had more visitors than the entire previous year, and our traffic has doubled in the last 3 days.”
Dennis believes the strong increase in traffic is due to the universal dream of finding one’s own paradise, and the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. “Everyone has a vision of what Paradise means to them. For some people it’s a hammock on a beach, while for others it’s a small cabin on a mountain lake. Paradise comes in many flavors and we’re giving someone the opportunity to find their own paradise. Then, once they’ve found it, we’re going to give them a property there worth up to $150,000. It’ll be a dream come true for someone, and you can see how it’s affecting people in the sincerity and emotional tone of some of the application videos.”
Though the competition is just three weeks old, word is already going viral. “We’re seeing huge responses from sites like Facebook, Twitter and YouTube,” says Dennis, “people are excited about the opportunity, and they’re telling their friends, not just in North America, but around the world.”
Applications have come in from countries like India, Brazil and South Korea. “We’ve been having an amazing time here and we love watching the new videos.” says Dennis. “There’s a really great energy around the office; everyone’s having a lot of fun.”
