Local Port will be a travel guide for independent travelers in the city of Porto.

Al content will be free to access and the site will be written in English and, in a second phase, in Spanish and Portuguese. Will have relevant information for independent travelers, lots of local and personal tips by authors and will offer discounts in local businesses such as bikes renting, surf lessons, etc.

Most of necessary work to launch and ongoing management of the project will be done by ourselves and by independent local bloggers, but there will be some tasks that we have to hire.

 Estimated Budget:

- Web design and coding = 500 €

- Content production = 750 €

- Design (logo, brochures, stickers, etc.) = 150 €

- Promotional Video = 500 €

- Online advertising (Google, Facebook, Newsletters, etc) = 1,000 €

- Offline advertising (brochures, stickers, business cards, etc.) = 350 €

During the development period we will mainly focus on web design and website programming, production and publishing of content (text and image) and implementation of business partnerships. Among others, we will have the following categories:

 

- Travel information (weather, when to go and special times, directions, food and dishes, local transport, etc.)

- Accommodation (hotels, hostels, guesthouses, apartments, etc.)

- Restaurants and Cafes

- Bars and Nightclubs

- Tourist attractions (wine cellars, heritage, museums, churches, etc.)

- Activities (Douro cruises, wineries, hiking trails, shopping, events, etc.)

- Services (rent-a-car, motorbike and bicycle rental, surf lessons, etc.)

- News

- Others
