Goals for 2021
We aim to become the number one digital nomad lifestyle brand in 2021. Due to COVID-19, remote work became the norm this year, and now people can work from anywhere.
So many people are currently becoming digital nomads and more will become so in 2021. This is a big lifestyle paradigm shift. We plan to launch a nomad community and loyalty program to make the nomadic lifestyle much easier.
On the other hand, COVID-19 has had a huge negative impact on the hotel and vacation rental industries. It has increased empty rooms for operators globally. I expect the shake-up to last at least a year, possibly several years at most.
So we will continue improving our product to make the booking experience more seamless and help hotel and vacation rental operators fill their empty rooms by offering extended stays to digital nomads in 2021.
