Beautiful Destinations is a company founded by Oliver Heartmont, it all started in late December when Oliver was on vacation in New York City, he was very active on different types of social media accounts, but the one that interested him most was Instagram. He came up with an idea where people could send their photos of where they've been or live and get them featured on the account together with their photo. This soon grew massively with around 40 thousand new followers a week.
Within the massive growth of reaching over half a million of followers, Oliver decided that there was time to expand BD even further which led him to create BEAUTIFUL HOTELS. As of today in only 3 weeks, BH has gotten over 55 thousand followers. Around 3 thousand new followers a day. After reaching 75,000 followers, Oliver decided that there should be an account about food as well. So in late of June, Oliver created BEAUTIFUL CUISINES, which has in just a week reached over 10 thousand followers.
Now it is time to expand BD even further, and that's why we want to expand it to a website and an app. Read further to see the details for the project.
You've heard of Tripadvisor haven't you? Or maybe even Yelp? What about Foursquare?
Think of a combination between those 3… Where you can register and post reviews on restaurants, coffee shops, nightclubs, hotels and so forth.
At the same time you're able to check in at those places and share it to your FB. You'll also get rewarded for your activity, you earn experience points (EXP) and coins.
When a member logs in they get one coin and some EXP, when they check in to a place they get another coin and some EXP, if they share to FB or Twitter they get coins and some EXP. If they post a review they will earn 5 coins and some EXP, but we will have moderators that need to accept their article, also a member is only able to earn a specific amount of coins/EXP a day.
We will have an app that combines everything on the website into the app, also we will have a question of the day on the app and only on the app so everyone who wants to earn some extra coin/EXP will have to have the app. One question in each category (Travel and restaurants).
With the coins that our members earn, they will be able to exchange them for a lot of things in our coin shop, for example some of our merchandise, t-shirts, tank tops, bags, sleep patch for the eyes when you're flying, 10% discounts on guidebooks and so on. Things will get updated in the coin shop.
Be able to register on website. (Basic registration like on TUMBLR. Username, Password & Email.) You can write more information on your profile once you've registered and if you do, you will get extra EXP for each field that you put in. (Register via FB and Twitter as well).
Coin and EXP system, reward system.
Ranking system/EXP Level up system.
Review system in different categories. (Which we have to accept the review before it gets published)
App for iPhone and Android where the members are able write reviews, answer questions and of course exchange their coins for things in the coin shop!
SNEAK PEAK REGISTER TO SEE MORE. You can read a little reviews and just see thumbnail photos, you have to register to see more.
Follow us on FB and Twitter to get 5 coins and some EXP also follow the sponsored companies to earn 5 coins for each follow and some EXP.
While website is being build, please have the under construction front page something in this style:
A video of how the website will look and work from the app, also a register button that says: First 10,000 that register will get 100 b-coins that you will be able to exchange for awesome things in our shop!
And then an awesome photo or something as a background.
