Curious if you get an uptick in visitors or registrations following the publicity.

phone was ringing significantly more than usual today, and a good number of new users (based on an average december..which is our slowest month)...so that was nice.

However I am more delighted to see the mainstream media actually giving solid advice these days to help people out with their timeshares!

I think its fantastic that if an owner is directed to TUG or Redweek, they will find good solid help and advice on how to sell their timeshare and not get ripped off...so any media outlet that refers individuals to valid sites where people can get that help is a HUGE step in the right direction.

I also think its the first time ive heard a media correspondent be VERY adamant about not paying any upfront fees, I got an extra large smile after she said that =)

going to see if I can hook up my gopro to record just the snippet of the 3rd caller to upload to Youtube since I cant seem to download that video completely.

I think it would be a very handy thing for people to reference and view on their own, as many wont sit through the entire video to watch the 3rd caller unless they already knew it was about timeshares.

Yeah, she almost sounded like she's a regular on TUG, or she'd been coached by someone here. :D
I didn't want to listen to the whole thing, so moved the video about 3/5 the way through and got the discussion immediately.

Me too. It's at the 3 minute mark.
