A genre-specific user generated website (like youtube).
A a travel site where people would upload video and stills photos of their trips to the site and viewers would get a real sense of the place visited instead of just relying on the promotional material from the hotel/resort. It's a first person account of destinations, resorts/hotels, attractions… almost any part of a trip.
Ideally it would have the following:
• user/password for subscribers to upload video/photos
• My Trip folder so when a person likes a review, they can save the trip videos they are interested in
• organize by Destination (romantic, family, adventure, spa) by country, state, city, location
• Search function that defaults to the most relevant or highest rated – but can be re-sorted by user to most viewed, most recent as well.
Viewers of each upload could give a thumbs up or down to help determine highest rated by users??
• Video of the week
* upload forms
During each upload, subscribers would also have an area to add a brief text description, name of location/resort, etc, city, state, country. Subscriber would also be able to click on check boxes for various categories that might apply to their upload – such as sun and sand, romantic, for kids, etc. (I will come up with a full list of the categories) Subscriber would also be able to give a 1 to 5 star rating for the location/hotel.
Admin would need to be able to review, approve and add/edit text and data before pushing the video to the site.
Leave room for Ad Banners and other ads/sponsors.
There needs to be enough storage for videos to amass as users upload more.
Rough assessment on the pages...
