Brizeo Brizeo App

Brizeo is an activity based social app to connect people at home and abroad. Brizeo combines the best features of individual apps under one platform. For example, you can upload pictures and videos directly to your profile, there is an Instagram-like wall, you can add the countries you’ve visited as a travel log, and send pictures, videos, and maps through the chat function. Last, there is an invite feature that will reward you for inviting other people to download Brizeo. This will be automatically tracked to invitation.

Brizeo will match users based off the criteria and interest categories they select. Interest categories include: Share Travel Costs, Touring/Excursions, and Advice/Ideas. Simply fill out your interest as Touring/Excursion  and include details in your bio to indicate the types of tours you offer.

How it works

Below are examples of how customers can be matched to you:

  1. If you and a potential customer are both in the same location i.e. New York and both searching in New York, you can match;
  2. If you and a potential customer are in different locations but both searching the same location, you can match;
  3. Additionally, users can like pictures posted to the Moments wall. The global feed is listed under the “All” section in Moments. If a user likes one of your pictures, his/her match card will come up in your queue regardless of location. This will help expand the community and pool of potential matches.

The above will allow users to not only meet people once they are in a certain location, but also provide a means to meet other travelers or locals before they arrive in a desired city. Moreover, if one user has already booked a guided tour, they are likely to invite their new match to join and participate.
