HELP NEEDED IN 2012
Hello there, my name is Pushpendra and I am running a hotel in Jaipur, Rajastan. The hotel has been around for many years hosting holidaymakers, businesses and in the past also more backpackers.
In your free time you will be able to discover the Pink City and its wonderful and impressive temples, forts and ancient buildings nearby.

Help with Computers / internet
1) Web designer, content producer, film maker, and/or programmer
I am keen to find new customers for my hotel through the internet by developing my website, being active on Facebook (please like us!), with Google services (please write us a google review!), and Trip Advisor. If you're good with web marketing, your work would consist of developing new content (writing and updating texts, taking photos, making videos, creating animations, updating graphics, programming new features, etc. with your own equipment. We need to maintain and update old and find new venues for increasing our online sales, and interacting with social media followers. The current aim is to increase the amount of Indian customers as the number of foreigners travelling to India is soaring due to the financial crisis.
I would also like to try having a helper to work at the reception desk for several hours each day, so if you have any experience with that sort of work, it could be useful. Even if you don't have experience, you can quickly learn how to do the few tasks required.
3) Bar worker
If the two tasks mentioned above are not for you, you could help to run the rooftop bar It is open from 5 PM to 10 PM. each evening. Right now we are serving drinks and a few snacks there whenever there is a volunteer, but my dream is to sell more food like in the good old days when we used to serve more backpackers. If you like to cook and bake and can think of a few recipes you could serve, that would be great. We could even open our rooftop grill on a regular basis! If you can´t cook or bake, don´t worry – just helping to sell drinks is enough. If you bring your own music, you're welcome to play it on the rooftop.
4) We are looking for an artist to re-create the old hotel sign. We have digitally restorated our old sign and we would like to find someone who would copy the sign manually from the digital image to a piece of metal using paint. If you have the skills, we'd love to hear from you!
If you bring a notebook you can use the free wifi on the rooftop.
If there is something else you think you could add to the hotel, I am open to hearing your ideas once you get here. Tell me what you can do best and we will try it.
In exchange for your work I offer a room in the hotel with a great view over the city. The room is quite hot (38-40 C) and there is a lot of dust at least in the summer, so make sure that your equipment can take it or is well protected. The room has a fan but no A/C. I will provide basic ingredients for you to cook your own lunch or dinner (one meal per day, no fruits or special stuff). You will take care of the rest of the meals at your own expense.
