Hi Tim, thanks for sharing Explo with the Travel Massive community!
A few quick comments / questions:
1. I downloaded the app but I think I'm a bit too far from your content here in Thailand. Perhaps to onboard far-away users like me, you could explain that you're yet to open in my area, and encourage me to submit a tip or place.
2. Are you primarily for German speaking audience, or English (or any other language) as well? If you're supporting multiple languages, you may need to allow a filter or auto translation of the text.
3. What does "intelligent enrichment technology" mean?
Hope this feedback is helpful. The app and website looks very polished, well done!
Hey Ian, appreciate you being active that much here on TravelMassive!
Thanks for the feedback, that is really helpful.
1. We are still quite early and therefore have an invite only creator community focused on Germany (especially Kiel and Northern Germany as of now). The results should be ordered by distance meaning if there is something close, we'll let you know. But we'll definitely include a little hint that you can go ahead and submit a few places (just need to finish the creation section in the app :D)
2. For now we focus on German and English speaking audience in Germany. But it's a really insightful tip to allow filtering for languages. We already have a few translation features in the app, but we agree that having voice-over (which adds a lot of value) will be a challenge.
3. "Intelligent enrichment technology", haha. It basically means for every video you provide, you only need to provide a location, too. Everything else is done automatically. We get all the information about the place, add affiliates and other options (not yet implemented) that let's you earn money and also provide you with a simple link that you can share with anyone asking on social media about the place. In addition to that, we are also soon providing automated video tagging that helps make your videos easily findable based on things being shown and happening in the video.
Our goal is to deliver the highest value to your community without making you as a creator any work at all. Basically a "passive income creator" without you putting in any real work based on what you have already done in the past :)
Absolutely helpful feedback, thanks, appreciate it, Ian!
