We are currently very focussed on numerous strategic and tactical objectives (how is that for a parodox?) As well as getting ready for a forthcoming visit to Australia for ATE we have a number of major enhancements to the Triptide platform. I am heading off to Queensland next week and after spending some quality time with the folks on Day Dream Island I will be going to Cairns for the annual jamboree of ATE to meet up with old friends and hopefully make some new ones. The Australian hub is giving us some great new conversations as new communities sprout from within and the number of contributors grow. We are also hoping to announce our new Australian partner – so watch this space. I am also happy to report that the number of bookings generated from the hub is also on the up and we have a few more happy customers. I am especially looking forward to visiting some of our members in Sydney and in particular a trip to the Parramatta Historical Group - http://bit.ly/QTSu9z.
Further afield TripTide Southern Africa is reporting initial bookings and the drive to recruit new members and content contributors is on. Swiftly moving continents, Angie Barnard, founder of TripTide Canada is doing a great job with new suppliers and community members.
I am also pleased to report the opening of the online store for Adrenaline Boards in Oz and new customers Tasmanian Expeditions and G-Adventures who are now supplying quality product through TripTide Australia. New travel guides have also been commissioned for the Coral Coast, North Queensland and Perth. We are also looking forward to opening online stores for Trappers in Cape Town and the Albany Outpost on Vancouver Island through their respective hubs.
On the technology front our new ‘incentives’ system is off the drawing board and into the code and we are eagerly anticipating its launch. We have also been working closely with a new ‘reviews’ system which will is due to be unveiled at ATE. Apart from that its all been a bit quiet really.
