TravelGuide.concept.Basic info is pulled from RSS feeds from all over the world, and edited into a readable story, researched and complemented with addition interesting facts and figures,and presented in a graphically attractive format..As we will have editors from around the world, the information is translated in as many languages as possible. This could become the first multilingual travel guide on the Internet.
That could attract a huge advertising potential, which pays for the efforts the editors put in. As it’s web based there’s little or no overhead costs. But for example for people like Norman, it would pay for his daily expenses and offer a great platform to further foot the bills for his other plans.It’s a job for anybody interested in doing desk research, copywriting, photosharing and manipulation and travel in general.
This has not been before. The first attempt was eTurbonews, but they never managed to get local people involved to an extend a reealy attractive proposition came out of it, as the local editors were not paid for their work.and the concept overall was tomuch US centred to becoem a hit in the rather conservative travel industry.
In those days the technology used was so basic it just didn’t look professional. A missed chance, and hopefully a way for me to reconnect to the traveltrade. by taking travel publishing to the next level.
