Travel content solutions provider, The Travel Gadget (TheTravelGadget.com) has begun compiling a database of 1,000 shortened city guides for sale and syndication. After less than two months of writing, phase 1 of the project - 200 city introductions for European destinations - has just been completed.
Helsinki, Finland., February 15, 2014 - (PressReleasePoint) - Travel content solutions provider, The Travel Gadget has begun compiling a database of 1,000 shortened city guides for sale and syndication.
Following on from their success with 2camels.com — which has been offering up free festival content for thousands of festivals and events, to millions of visitors since 2001 — the company has decided to create a business to business travel product to address what they see as a tangible gap in the online travel market.
Each of their 1,000 city introductions will contain a professionally-written 80-120 word city description, official city tourism website links and city latitude and longitude data.
The city introductions are being put together by a small but very experienced team of travel writers. After less than two months of writing, phase 1 of the project - 200 city introductions for European destinations - has just been completed.
A phased offering of the product - 500 city introductions from cities in more than 200 countries worldwide - will be available for sale or syndication by the end of May 2014. The full database of 1,000 city introductions are on track to become available to clients by the end of 2014.
"We understand there are some high quality, quite detailed city guides already available for syndication. We don't see ourselves as direct competition in that market. Our listings are lightweight in comparison; city introductions rather than detailed city guides. Our pricing structure will reflect that difference too, with prices beginning at mere pennies, per guide, per month", says Paul Dodson, the contributing editor of The Travel Gadget.
"With our product, we're targetting mid-sized travel websites who may be looking for some professionally-written travel copy to compliment their existing content. Perhaps a new player in the online accommodation market who is seeking copy to serve as an introduction to destination-specific pages displaying their properties."
Whilst the full database will contain 1,000 city introductions, the product will be offered up on a city by city basis.
"We're looking to position ourselves to cater for the full range of potential travel clients. From the country-focussed website looking to display 20 city introductions for their country of choice, right through to larger internationally-focussed travel sites that want to utilise all 1,000 city introductions in our database.
"If a client requires an introduction for a city not yet covered, all they need to do is request it and it will become part of our ever-increasing database of city introductions during our next round of updates."
Work on The Travel Gadget project is running in tandem with the development of The Festival Gadget - an ambitious project to list and maintain an updated database of 4,000 detailed festival descriptions.
At The Travel Gadget our team of highly experienced travel writers are putting together a travel content database of 1,000 professionally-written city guides from around the world.
