Ideas from Springwise.Com

One of the world’s leading source of new business ideas, powered by a network of 8000+ spotters, Springwise .com is an address which I regularly visit and look for ideas which I can feed myself, try to understand how the other think and create. Try it... it is enjoyable!

As I am currently working for SunExpress, I check Tourism & Travel section with a different point of view. 2008’s top 10 Travel & Tourism ideas was announced in 24 December 2008. However, only a few of them were impressed me. This year, I think there are some more bright ideas in this section.

Here are the ones which I liked so far;
- Social Network for Air France – KLM travelers
- Trip Planner suggests travelling music
- JetBlue's All-You-Can-Jet
- Event driven travel...
and my favorite one so far is;
- Hand Sketched Maps featuring drawing and local advice. A la Carte Maps are designed to combine guidebook, tourist map and original art in one which present an array of each city’s best-kept insider tips on a beautiful, 70-by-42-cm, hand-drawn map. This is perfectly fits to my travel blog Yol Gidenindir!’s approach.

When we look at marketing overall I have two to share;
- As many of you heard about it, “The Best Job in the World” is a success.
- Concept Feedback is an interesting tool to get early feedback from the community about your up—coming campaign, website or any communication.

Let’s keep spotting!… and review in December 2009.
