Sponsorship & Partnership Guide

Introduction was born from the sheer love and passion for Jamaica by a native, Wellesley Gayle in March 2007.

Since then, it has grown at a rapid pace and is now arguably the finest locally managed and most popular, non-media or non-governmental website.

The site has as its slogan “Sharing the Uniqueness of Jamaica With The World” . That fits strategically in line with its profound belief that Jamaica and the Jamaican people are distinctive and special in many ways.

The website provides insightful information on all things Jamaican, but is positioned more towards individuals seeking insightful information on Jamaica vacationing, Jamaican products and services and country research.

In addition to the wealth of information, reviews favorite restaurants, villas, hotels, shops, activities and adventures in Jamaica.

Through Wellesley's eyes, the site recounts his explorations, adventures and discoveries in Jamaica from the West to the East of the island.

And visitors enjoy the unique flavor of the site, often cherry-picking and printing out what to do on their Jamaica vacation. Many, by the way, are ardent followers and subscribers to the site, some even contributing their own fascinating stories.

The website has been featured on both local and international domains. This includes a recent special feature in the Gleaner’s Hospitality Jamaica.

This young site now already has an excellent and enviable Alexa rank of under 187,000, and has earned direct links from over 250 reputable and authoritative sites.

These sites include,,,, and

Additional Note:

Why Limited Sponsorship Space though?

This is not a "commercial" website, so there are few sponsorship opportunities. seeks only a small number of quality partners, on a category-exclusive basis, who want to create win-win-win ( promotional partnerships.

The philosophy is simple...

"Never lose what is all about... Our love for this beautiful island!"
