…actually, it will never be “finished” (too many amazing ideas & features to add) but it’s up & running & looking rather slick…
… And now it’s time to explain to the world (one snoLover at a time) why it’s the cleverest, most brilliantly useful thing since sliced bread!
But what if they don’t “get it” or worse, don’t care?
I truth, I’ve been working on http://www.sno.co.uk/mobile/ for nearly 2 years… full time for the last 6 months… and invested quite a lot in it financially and emotionally.
I think it’s a brilliant idea – it’s certainly a world’s first – but I really must find a good way of telling people about it that gets them as excited as me!
If you’re reading this blog, would you please read my explanation below and tell me if it excites you… sounds cool… makes sense… would make you try out sno.mobi… etc…
I really need all the advice and feedback I can get…
My explanation goes something like this:
It’s the world’s first ski-resort guide on your mobile phone – it works on all phones and it’s free.
We don’t take our computer on holiday & rarely go to a net-cafe,
but everyone carries their phone in their pocket, everywhere, all the time.
There’s the usual snow forecast & piste conditions…
… but sno.mobi also has bars & restaurants, events & babysitters, apartments 4 rent & property 4 sale…
… ski & snowboard instructors… taxi & buses… even snoJobs & all attractions & facilities… for Hundreds of the world’s top resorts!
Every listing has a map & you can even save your chalet address and get free navigation.
You even get free email if you join and that works on all phones too!
Yes, maps & navigation & email but you don’t need a fancy mobile – it works on ALL phones
and we don’t charge a penney!
In fact, we’ve designed the whole service for the small screen so page size is tiny, to avoid big data bills.
We found that, like us, most skiers & boarders would prefer to support local business in-resort, to help keep ski comunities the vibrant & buzzing places we love to visit – SNO.mobi is designed to make that easy!
Also, it makes the world of difference to find out what areas are open/closed or have the best conditions or longest lift queues before you leave your apartment.
Also… there are a lot of other “also” ‘s
We also believe in ethical business - instead of maximising what we charge a business to Get-Listed, we minimise it, so that everyone can afford to be found on mobile – from the awesome Ecole du Ski Francais to the chalet girl who needs to earn a bit extra by babysitting.
Most quality ski resort guides charge one to two hundred euros per year for a “Business Listing” – we’ll charge just
