Listed here is an interesting interview of Thomas Owadenko that Loic Le Meur just uploaded on his website. Thomas is the CEO of the new journey 2. website identified as Trivop.
Trivop.com is a quite fantastic example of a very good use of net 2. in the journey marketplace. It is a platform of video evaluations of hotels (situated in Europe and then in the long run in the US).Like I explained in the earlier, the long run of resort testimonials is strongly connected to the long run of on the internet movie we earlier noticed the impression of a straightforward online video uploaded on youtube to report a bad resort room in Madrid. We also observed Tripadvisor introduced a video uploading characteristic on their site to abide by this (lodge) trend.
Now we have a devoted web-site only for inns which mixed a mashup of Google maps, Tripadvisor text reviews and videos created by hoteliers and company.In the video Thomas claims that it will be concentrated on lodges for the 1st 3 several years, Trivop does not have a actual competitor considering the fact that there is no other 100% comparable web-site. On the other hand it may well someway contend with video clips of websites like Youtube, Google Video, DailyMotions and so forth. and also with websites like www.travelistic.com that have a wider solution and publish video information for every thing associated to vacation.
When Trivop has been launched at the starting of April 2007, it already experienced filmed and uploaded about 170 movies of resorts. Trivop will also intend to generate a
market neighborhood where movie producers could meet up with the demand from customers for movie of hoteliers.
Through the interview Thomas suggests that not only the hotelier can upload a video clip but also the visitor. As of today I have not been in a position to discover a video produced by a guest, but only video “ordered” by hoteliers, with a quite great enhancing by the way. The only detrimental remark I would make is that there is no way you can manage the playback of the online video other than using the pause button. Videos are performed sequentially (divided into segments: foyer/conventional place/suite etc) just as if you had been watching basic previous television. When choosing what lodge I want to ebook, I have a minimal accessible time for creating my option. I need to review resort price ranges, resorts testimonials and so on observing every phase (of about 50sec to 1min40) without having getting the alternative to speedy forward the movie is time consuming.
In my feeling the problem for Trivop will be to create profits by proposing their solutions as filmmakers for hoteliers while they supply a no cost platform for attendees to add their “videos reviews” that could criticize and hurt their possess consumers.
In any case I identified that the idea of Trivop is innovative and valuable for travellers and I desire them the best of good results.
