(PRWEB) November 4, 2005
TravelPod, the Web’s Original Travel Blog, announced that it has reached the critical milestone of 20,000 registered members. “This achievement is a powerful endorsement of the TravelPod One Member principle,” said Martin Horne, president. Horne explained that the TravelPod.com design and development team adopted the term ‘one member’ to provide a clear context for decisions on new features and site enhancements. “The results are always better when you’re striving to deliver an engaging on-line experience to an audience of one,” Horne said. “And when we get it right for that one member, we get it right for all 20,000 plus.”
Luc Levesque, TravelPod founder and vice president technology, credits constant interaction with the membership community for helping to paint a clear picture of what TravelPod’s proverbial one member wants from their travel blogging website. “TravelPod members put a lot of time and energy into their travel diaries and journals,” said Levesque. "We respect that and it's our job to provide the tools that make it easy to capture and share the experience of travel through words, photos, video, and audio.”
Levesque says the company uses many channels to stay connected with the community, some traditional and some that seek to understand new dimensions in user preference. “The One Member principle even comes into play when we put a new button on TravelPod.com," said Levesque. "If no one clicks on it, that's the members are telling us in one clear voice that we can do better, and that's what we do."
