Resurrecting a 19th Century Business
Our hotel is the ship. Most meals are aboard. We have morning excursions with local guides who will hit the main attractions. Afternoons and evenings are free for us to explore on our own.
Here's where you come in.
Under your current business model, we would have to purchase your complete guides to Austria and Germany.
To buy both books at amazon.com would cost me $32.16 for 1,216 pages weighing 2.3 pounds. Well over 1,000 of those pages contain information we have zero interest in.
Things We DO NOT Want to Know About: Getting there and public transportation, hotels, bicycling, excursions into the countryside, nightlife, the gay scene, the bar scene, the best activities for children and much more.
What I Would Like to Pay You For
• A concise history of the countries and each city. Please include a list of intriguing facts, factoids and anecdotes.
•Weather for that time of year.
•The main attractions ranked from the most popular to least with descriptions of each, why they are important and what to look for:
-Restaurants: the six or eight of the best at various prices
-Most interesting local foods to order
-Best shopping highlights
• Transportation: We will be using taxis. What do we need to know about them?
• Basic map of each city with the above highlights pinpointed.
How Will You Know What I Want?
I would like to go to your website and tick boxes in a questionnaire. All this material is in your database. When I click Send, you will know instantly how much information I am buying and the price I must pay.
Delivery: I would like you create a paperback book via Print-on-Demand containing the information above. The genius of Print-on-Demand enables the publisher to make good money printing as little as one book at a time.
