Welcoming your Business to the Sharing Economy.

Airbnb Hosts love recommending the great local Businesses to their Guests and with over 100,000 Hosts across Australia (alone) that's a big opportunity for your business.

Until now there hasn't been a simple way for Hosts to connect with and recommend the local Businesses they love - it's why we built Roamlocal. ūüĎć

Common Questions

What is Roamlocal?
Roamlocal is a global, mobile first community marketplace connecting Travellers to the best Businesses, Places & Experiences thanks to authentic recommendations by real Locals.

At a nuts and bolts level, Roamlocal is a mobile app available on Apple & Android devices.
WHY DID WE BUILD ROAMLOCAL?
Word of mouth advice to great local Businesses is how the world SHOULD work. Roamlocal delivers on this ideal enabling your great customers to easily recommend you to others.
‚ÄčAdditionally, advertising is difficult and expensive for a small business. You NEVER need to worry about advertising on Roamlocal - just keep being awesome.
How does it work?
Firstly, let‚Äôs consider there are ‚ÄėTravellers‚Äô, ‚ÄėLocals‚Äô and ‚ÄėBusinesses‚Äô.
  1. A Local nominates your Business to join Roamlocal.
  2. Travellers visit, enjoy and spend money @ your Business - you provide a small reward.
  3. Travellers transact and can optionally provide feedback in a secure and private conversation with you.
What does it really cost?
No upfront costs ever - you just need to provide a simple incentive to entice a potential customer to visit. If your incentive is focussed on a unique experience (that costs time, not money) then Roamlocal is essentially free.
In these foundational days of Roamlocal we are focussed on delivering new revenues, valuable feedback and new customers through your doors.
If it's free, how do you make money?
In these early days we're simply building the community of Travellers, Locals & Businesses. We believe in a fair and balanced world where we are all rewarded for providing our recommendations.
We believe in a fair and balanced world where we are rewarded for providing our recommendations. Eventually the local Businesses you nominate will be verified onto the platform and when you recommend a Traveller visits them, we'll take a commission on that transaction and share that 50/50 with you, the local.
So in short, Roamlocal makes money when a Traveller visits your Business through a recommendation by a real Local. The good news for Businesses, you only reward us / pay a commission AFTER we've sent you a paying customer.
