This is it, our little startup Soul.City inc. provides itself with the means of deploying across the entire planet, with the creation of new tools, dedicated to a whole new community: the Cityzens. Contrary to what one might think, Cityzens aren’t a new trendy relaxation yoga fan group… They are passionate inhabitants, who like to discover and to make others discover their city through their passions and emotions.
Since the very beginning, we wished to build a community around our Soul.City app. We do believe that it’s the citizens themselves who know the city the best, and that they are most likely able to make people discover it… We wanted to let those who create rich content (information, emotion, passion) place their talent in every traveller’s pocket.
To achieve that, we worked with several bloggers, redactors, guides, but also with passionate citizens… They helped us understand their working process, their desires and their stakes. Each of them carries a different story, different values, depending on their own passions and lifestyle. Ultimately, it all comes together with what Soul.City wants to offer to its users. The Soul.City app (available on iPhone and Android) is made of discovery urban itineraries, using emotions and passions as a guiding theme.
Therefore, we decided to open up the app to those who think they have a relevant content to share. They’ll have the opportunity to share it and value it directly through the app, and through their reader’s smartphone. Just like a friend who takes you by your hand to show you the city, the Cityzen makes you discover or rediscover the town through his own eyes.
In a nutshell, all those who like making others discover their city are welcome!
As long as the content is smart, unexpected, exciting, and able to end up in an urban itinerary, he will be subject to be integrated in the app. Cityzens are put in the front scene thanks to a link to their own website. Brands which sponsor itineraries in which they appear will be related with the itinerary creator, so he/she can be remunerated.
Soul.City becomes a complementary tool for your blog, by valuing your expertise and everyone’s life experiences. With Soul.Cityzen, you’ll find a new business model to operate.
Soul.Cityzen: a toolbox for the Cityzens.
Soul.Cityzen is the interface with which you’ll be able to express yourself. Exchanging and sharing ideas, creating specific itineraries… The time where we created our itinerary in our own corner is over. Now you’ll be able to use our tools to give your work a whole new dimension.
