Atdaa.com is a company based in San Francisco, CA. We are a digital guide for the city of Istanbul. Our unique content is one of the best resources describing Istanbul to travelers. We provide guidance to westerners (mostly American & British) who seek unique experiences in this amazing city.
Our writers are volunteers, who are mainly from the expatriate communities of Istanbul. Atdaa provides its authors gift cards from best service providers in Istanbul. In return, our writer community shares their most honest feedback about their experiences, in other words, tell their story in their own way.
We would like you to participate our Wandering Writer Program as a writer and describe your experience after you visit places we provide gift cards for. Here are some example articles on Atdaa: Photo Shoot at Giycek, Shopping at Ark Of Crafts, Molly’s Cafe.
Here is how it works:
We provide a gift card that is equivalent to the cost of your services for one or two people depending on the business (nothing expensive, nothing mediocre, but some average cost of one or two happy customers)
You choose a day to visit the service provider/store
You don’t introduce yourself as an Atdaa writer until the end of your visit - until checkout (By keeping our writers’ identity private until the end, we make sure they receive a standard service, and share their most honest feedback about the overall experience)
You ask for the bill and pay with the gift card we have provided
You write a post on atdaa.com about your experience within the next 48 hours
-- That’s it!
