Description

UK tourist destination pages.

Preparing content (text and images) for a tourist site for each of the following 20 UK locations. Our intention is to build about 100 more such pages in batches, so this is a pilot and we are aiming for high quality pages.
The content must include both text and matching images (at least 5 per location).
If images are used from other sites, an explicit consent for their use must be obtained from their owners (or they must be copyright free).
The pages must be in *simple* HTML format. Images linked an <img> tag. When appropriate, links to other pages (e.g. museums, galleries, clubs, etc.) should be provided using an <a href=...> tag.
All content must Copyscape.

For an example of the page structure (but of course not content) see http://www.pondilla.com/Cambridge .
The details for each site should include the following parts:

Clarification Board

    "Cannot exceed 200GBP in total, and hoping to have as many of them as possible."

    'Can't' or 'won't'? If it's 'can't' you're not really in business here. If it's 'won't', you don't deserve to be.

  • Sue K.

    Can I just clarify. Are you offering £10 - £15 per 1,000 word article including 5 photographs?

    I regularly write travel articles and special interest articles for print magazines and would expect to get at least 5p per word and a minimum of £5 per photograph.

  • Rebecca C.

    Hi there,
    I\'m a travel writer and am involved with tourist boards all the time. My concern is that you are offering £600 for 20,000 words and images...
    Can you clarify??

    Thanks
    Rebecca

  • Audrey S.

    Thanks Pondilla for your response. I was trying to work out the costs per article. Since you now plan to give up on some locations, please keep me informed on your final list. It will also be helpful if you could provide us with the number of words your expect for each location.

    Regards,

    Audrey

  • Audrey S.

    Hi Pondilla,

    Thank you for inviting me to bid on this project; I have already placed my bid.

    However, I would like to know the approximate number of words you expect for each article?

    Please let me know.

    Thank you

    Audrey

    Hi Audrey,

    We're aiming at about 1000 words per location. We might be willing to give up on a few locations due to the budget constraint. Some of the locations may require more than a 1000 words, but some of them are simpler and would require less.

    Thanks,

    P.

  • Graham G.

    I see that you do not include an East location, such as Norwich? At the heart of a very touristy area. May I ask why this is so?

    Hi,

    Actually planned for a later phase (along with quite a few other locations - e.g. King's Lynn).

  • PHIL B.

    Hi Pondilla P

    Thank you for inviting me to bid.

    Can you clarify that the budget of £50 - £150 is for all 20 locations?

    Thanks, Phil.

    Hi P.B.

    Aiming at a budge of 10GBP per the simple sites, 15GBP for each of the more complicated ones (some are very quick and others require more details). Cannot exceed 200GBP in total, and hoping to have as many of them as possible.

    Thanks,

    P.
