Theworldsmap.com, a unique, globally-focused knowledge sharing website, has announced it has completed the first stage of its development and is now opening up its website to sponsors.
Since launching in March this year, Theworldsmap.com has received over 100 pieces of knowledge from the public and over 3,800 views at their home page. Started with the same community ethos that has allowed Wikipedia to become one of the world’s most utilised platforms, Theworldsmap.com is capitalising on the growth of the Web 2.0 phenomenon, which has seen user generated knowledge and opinion become one of the most sought-after and respected sources of information in the modern day.
Theworldsmap.com has confirmed it will not allow overt advertising within its pages, but will host a sponsor’s page where companies will be able to advertise their business ‘for life’. The website is guaranteed to be in operation for a minimum time frame of five years. It is expected that forward thinking companies which recognise the rise of user generated content to become the number one information source for many will be first in line to sponsor the website, which allows users to trade tips and key information on restaurants and hotels.
From one dollar breakfasts in New York to which bungalows have the best view of the ocean around Madagascar, the Theworldsmap.com is already becoming a valuable travel companion for some, focusing on the positives, rather than the often unreliable mix of opinions seen on some well-known travel review sites. The user-friendly map format makes the site easy to navigate, wherever you are headed in the world.
Theworldsmap.com has also announced it will widen its social media presence significantly in line with its development, and the best tips and advice that are recorded on the site will be sent out for the benefit of the ‘Twittersphere’, via the popular social media channel Twitter.
A company spokesperson for Theworldsmap.com said: “We are pleased to have built a firm foundation for the free exchange of travel, food and accommodation tips for the world on Theworldsmap.com. With stage one of our development now complete, we are seeking sponsors that can help us take this high potential resource to the next level. We promise to do our bit by continuing to display your comments and tips, and will increase our engagement by using Twitter to regularly communicate the best advice uploaded to the site.”
