Description:
Travelsharper: a curated step by step travel guide to off beat destinations

You have design acumen and will help us create an inviting, easy to read mobile friendly template for our content.

This is a unique opportunity to work with a NY based father and son team that has extensive travel experience in several interesting venues in the world. There is work continuation as we upgrade and optimize the content in the next several months.

In addition to your design and development skills, you are able to communicate clearly in written English and pay attention to details.

Travelsharper.com aims to become a destination for discerning travelers who are looking for a step-by-step itinerary for 3-5 day getaways in interesting, less traveled venues in the Americas, Europe and Asia. It is the antidote against the travel aggregators like Tripadvisor or Kayak that sell leads. Travelsharper emphasizes cultural sensitivities (e.g. never toast with beer in Budapest, Hungary for this is what the Austrians did when they hung Hungarian rebel nationalists in the 1840s), list and links to top 10 restaurants & hotels, cultural, sport and parks recommendations (with links to book in advance) and curated day by day activities.

As a premium publisher, Travelsharper.com will first build its audience by invitation only (up to 5,000 registered users, mostly in the NY, LA and CHI metro areas), then will provide a free and a premium access to a wider target audience. The revenue model is paid subscription, select branded advertisers (airlines, hotel chains, insurance products, high end automotive), and in a later phase, lead generation.

Travelsharper Audience — 25-60 year old single or couple travelers. $100K+ income/year. Time sensitive (willing to pay for good information and shortcuts). Urban based. Spending $5K+ a year on leisure travel.

* Website Objectives — The primary objective of the website is to provide an easy to navigate, easy to use content depository of blog like descriptions of travel venues. Desktop access at first: 4 day getaway in Budapest with rich media (pictures, videos, links), then once on site in Budapest, a compressed, fast load mobile access to specific content. The advertisement will be native no pop ups nor intrusive banners.
* Functionality Requirements — easy to write blog template, drop down menu, smart key word tagging, links, attribution for leads, smart queries/cataloguing, UX generated content, video feeds
* Has to be able to import content from Google Docs and Google Pix
Ecommerce Details — None.
