Netflix for travel guides

Travel Tips
Posted on: November 6th, 2013 by Derek No Comments

Unless you’re preparing for Armageddon you’ve probably heard or used Netflix.  On the surface it’s a wonderfully integrated content subscription tool that allows you great access to a variety of shows, movies and original content produced by Netflix.  What most people don’t stop to think about is the algorithm and matching engine that sits behind the scenes serving up its users with relevant and engaging content based on what they’ve viewed, searched or are interested in. They know not only what you’re watching, but what you want to watch – and every day they’re getting better at helping you discover new shows or content you wouldn’t find flipping through the television.

Here at Buggl, we thought the same concept could be applied to travel guides and content.  We imagine serving up travelers with relevant guides based on where they are traveling to or live could be very powerful.  That said, what about taking it a step further in the future and showing people relevant places that they want to go just based on their preferences, passions or likes?

So that’s what we’re doing!  Instead of collecting outdated travel guidebooks from bookstore shelves and out of touch travel review sites, we decided to put the power in the hands of the travelers and local people.  Buggl gives the world a blank canvas to create travel guides based on any subject, interest or location.

So if you’re simply sharing information about an upcoming wedding to your guests, telling your family where to stay when they visit you or sharing a detailed itinerary to your upcoming B&B guests, it’s time you considered Buggl.  A platform where you can create inspiring and beautiful travel guides in minutes that are shareable to social networks, your website visitors or readers and the world.
