Twigmore provides a platform for travelers and locals to connect through friends. This solves the problem many travelers have where it's difficult to find trusted locals who can answer questions, show them around or just help when things come up.
The addressable market is projected to be ~$800M in 2012 with ~15% 3-year CAGR. The market is defined as US online travel advertising targeting 18-34 year olds. (Source: eMarketer, insidefacebook.com, CWT Digital)
Our friend-of-friend technology gives Twigmore a unique blend of trust and coverage as we can provide the traveler more trusted contacts per destination than the competition.
Already 4,500 beta users have imported over 2 million of their friends. To date, we've also integrated traveler-friendly Groupon deals for over 100 U.S cities. The intention here is to test conversion on different verticals of local services.
