Channels Overview

Channels Overview

So far there has been no simple way for travel writers or well informed travelers to monetize their valuable travel insights through the internet or even mobile phones and iPods. The city portal mycitymate now introduced a service which will allow for exactly that.

mycitymate recently introduced mycitymate channels. These channels combine content from various sources and in various formats and make it easily available via the Internet and on mobile phones. Channels can include content such as venue information, reviews, images, and even audio files for a specific topic. There are already interesting channels such as "Best Sushi Restaurants" or "Best of Barcelona".

Some of these channels are premium channels for which a user has to pay a fee to access its content online or via mobile devices. For travel writers and well informed travelers alike these premium channels offer an interesting way to earn money with their travel insights. They can very easily create their own premium channels and charge fees for their content. Whether they add venues, reviews, images or audio – all can be combined into interesting channels for other users. mycitymate provides and maintains the whole technology side and distributes the mobile applications.

Essentially mycitymate thinks this opens a new and easy way to turn travel insights into money. It takes little effort, existing content can be leveraged, travel writers and travelers benefit from the community who already added several thousand venues, new content is not given away for free and there is no hassle with technology.
