I require a website and mobile app to be designed and built.
A travel website and app primarily aimed for backpackers. The website will be content based but with the addition of logins for accounts where users can build a profile, interact with other users and gain benefits from the more interactions they carry out.
Travel Guide – Guides to different destinations, links to transport, accommodation and events.
Travel Planner – Ability to plan route on a world map, book accommodation / travel / events through affiliate links.
Forum – Allowing users to share stories, ask questions, buy and sell items cash not through site.
Profiles – Each user will have a personal profile including a map of destinations traveled, photos, videos and stories in their own blog incorporated in the website including write ups / reviews on certain destinations. Their own CV should they wish to apply for jobs when on the road.
Jobs Section – Allowing users to research local jobs, sign up to TEFL courses and more.
Feedback Rewards Section – Users provide feedback and reviews on destinations / establishments and receive points. Points will enable users to achieve a status for each individual city / country / continent / world e.g London Guru or World Nomad. Points will also reward users with a free nights stay at certain hostels or free drinks at the bar for example.
Tours & Events – Users will be able to post up events all round the world for other users to explore and visit when on their travels. In the future tickets could be purchased through the site as well.
The idea is to combine such websites as Blogger, Trip advisor, Yahoo answers, Forums, Travel guides/blogs, gumtree, couchsurfing and more. A good reference site is http://www.travellerspoint.com.
I have started a website myself but realise I will need assistance in build and then a handover to allow me to content manage moving forward with ad hoc support from development.
Sites I Like
[url removed, login to view] - site works well and is easy to get around. based around images which is more easy on the eye.
[url removed, login to view] - nice branding - clean and smart website.
[url removed, login to view] - does what i am trying to achieve but not all the aspects. The travel planner is really good.
A company logo is needed based around FAYT - For all your travels
I have some photos that can be used for the website. Other content for guides etc will be added on an ad-hoc basis
1- Home page
2- Contact Us
3- Destination Page
4- Travel Page
4- Forum sections (i have images of a site i started using a template)
5- Account set up / log in /
6- Travel Planner
7- Job Links (showcase jobs in desire locations, maybe more once discussed further)
Objective of site
For All Your Travels
“Choose Your FAYT“ - tag line
The content whilst being built initially should also be user driven content and allow for traffic and community to be built then commercial revenue driven by affiliate websites linking in for booking systems, tickets and other travel related purchases including currency etc...
**Note – the website should be SEO optimized, built for my own CMS editing functions and allow me flexibility to add, edit remove content. I am also wanting to lock down a price list for development in the future and get agreement over who owns the code base.
- There also needs to be a discussion around hosting, maintenance and any further digital marketing costs should this be something the chosen tender would like to participate in. I see this as a long term project and once which I am looking for a partner in.
More details for brief are available but ran out of room for advert.
