Warwick, RI (PRWEB) August 30, 2014
Brave River Solutions created a new website for travelMaine, a travel guide publication dedicated to showcasing all that Maine has to offer. The website, GoTravelMaine.com, which serve tourists and locals alike, is an accompaniment to the print editions of the travelMaine guides. The website was built using responsive web design technology, which allows for optimal viewing on desktop, tablet, and mobile phones of all sizes. There are sections for each region of the state, as well as pages dedicated to the best places to eat, shop, stay and play during a Maine vacation. The most noteworthy feature of the new website however, is the Deals of the Week.
Deals of the Week is a new service from travelMaine that allows website visitors to purchase discounted gift certificates for local businesses, including restaurants and attractions. Brave River Solutions built Deals of Week on their eCommerce platform and integrated the feature with Facebook. Users can log-in with their Facebook account and purchase the gift certificate using a secure PayPal transaction. There’s also an option to share your purchase with your friends on the social media network, adding a level of social interaction.
“The team at Brave River Solutions gave us the functionality we needed to launch the Deals of Week feature, and created an inviting website design that looks great on both desktop and mobile devices,” said Wendi Smith, Publisher at travelMaine.
In addition to launching the GoTravelMaine site, Brave River updated travelMaine’s Mobile Guide to also include responsive web design. The guide was originally built by Brave River Solutions in 2012 as a geolocation-enabled directory of businesses across Maine, presented as a web-based mobile application. With the latest update, the application, accessible online at FindItInME.com, is now available on desktop devices in addition to mobile phones and tablets.
