    Extremly interesting journey !

    I can't wait to know where this is going to lead you.

    One question, and sorry if you already answered it but, how are you gonna monetize this?

    Wishing you all the best in this adventure

    I don't wish to monetize it for now - We are already a big company with over 100 employees. We are trying to build some nice assets. Once we have over a million users the site itself will have a crazy worth.

    The creative unit in our office has also added badges to each profiles as well.

    Maybe you've already done it. But I think it'd be a good idea to reach out to all the top 5 or top 10 results for search terms such as "best things to do in Turkey", "most fun things to do in Turkey", "activities in Turkey" and try to have them add your link?

    You have quiet ambitious and unique project. I'll follow this thread. TA is going down and being abused badly. I know your site is not like TA but some features may overlap. I hope you will take action to ward off potential abuse. I sincerely wish and hope your projects gets a flying start and become a big player like AirBnb and Booking.com. Keep us updated about your project. Thank you for sharing.

    Not sure if it will benefit me, but I will follow this one too. ;)
    I always follow the multi accounts approach this might turn out to be inspiring.

    Sure - Its an amazing idea.. So I'll put one of my resources to do that as well from today! LOL THANKS..
    I am so happy to read this.. Thanks much mate! I also hope that it works out well for us. We are already slowly growing now.
    maybe you could explain a little what you wish to say.

    Here is a thorough update of what we are currently doing.

    Android Application is done & rolling.
    I have completed the android application & we are now testing all the possible bugs. It should be ready to go live this week. We have started working on the apple application & it should be ready by next week. We are trying to make the color schemes really catchy so people can more easily spend more & more time on the portal.

    SEO Progress.
    We have scraped over 1000 keywords to get started with the SEO & we already bought packages for a certain amount of money. Some of the keywords look like this - These are for our Social Wall where we are posting a lot of content so readers have a lot of content.

    Paid Ads.
    Our SEM team have started doing campaigns over Facebook already. We are trying to finalize our features on the main website before we start doing ads in mass. Influences list is also ready! We'll give a good launch as soon as the profile page is catchy enough that it get us users instantly.


    Partnerships.
    I have offered shares to an advertising agency who know their stuff pretty well if they could help us further with the advertisements - We right now don't have much worries about expenditures but we need legitimate connections to get it to the level of airbnb & bookings. They have partially agreed & maybe we will let them do the marketing stuff with us.

    Development.
    The development team was slow the past week but now they are giving overnights & making sure that the designs are catchy & all the features are immediately added. Most are added & I will post pictures once they are finally up & moving..


    If you have any suggestions or feedbacks please let me know - Ask me any question that you may have. ​
