I have a complete technical document, mock-ups, and completion phases that I can send if this project is something you can complete. It is very complicated, and requires a very skilled programmer or a team of programmers. Here is the general idea:
[url removed, login to view] will be a platform for user-generated content where individuals or organizations (“eTour Guides”) can upload MP3 (audio), slideshow (audio + pictures), or video tours related to historic sites, tourist attractions, walking, driving, or interest-driven tours for Users, (or “eTravlers”) to download onto their IPod, IPhone, Droid, or PDA for a fee set by the eTour guide . That fee is split between the eTour Guide who uploaded the program and Downloadable Tours. For certified institutions that offer a free audio guide at their site, [url removed, login to view] will make the same offer, and allow those institutions to upload their tours to our site and offer them for free to their patrons.
The eTraveler is then able to log onto the site, search for tours he is interested in, and is given the option to preview a 120-second introduction of the tour.
After the eTraveler has listened to the tour, he is prompted to rate the tour, comment on the tour, post a question, and share a link to the tour with his Facebook friends. As the tours gain meaningful ratings, they are displayed in their ranking order for the eTravelers to download.
The eTraveler is also offered a 100% money-back guarantee. The website will have a function where the eTraveler can request a refund and must leave a review of the tour as to why he is requesting the refund.
There is also a back-end administrative section with statistics, information, and an internal email system.
