We will be happy to answer all questions.
If you have any further questions, just contact us.
What is Local Alex?
Local Alex is a FREE Travel App built up of a network of locals who want to help visitors get a good, quick and user-friendly overview.
What skills do I need?
We are looking for people who have the energy and motivation to create a strong customer base in a short period of time. You must be keen to run your own business, manage your own employees, focus on success and be prepared to put in the necessary time to make it happen.
Why do we want to find local travel partners for our business?
Finding local travel partners for the businesses allows us to expand at a much quicker rate than if we had to go to each destination, set up the business and employ and manage staff. Our main objective is to expand quickly so we can all benefit from being part of a global network. We also believe in the local partner knows much more about what happens local and can take action.
How do we select your Local Travel Partners?
We want our Local Travel Partners to succeed so on that basis we will be selective with whom we choose to grant a territory licence to. Potential partners do not have to be experts in App development or be experts in the travel industry.
We want disciplined, sales minded, positive Partners who can talk to local people in all walks of life.
Who decides the price on my Product?
You decide what price you charge for the promotion profiles in your App with complete flexibility allowing you to adjust to the market.
Who collects the payments?
You retain 100% of sales and are responsible for invoicing the local businesses directly.
What training do I get?
On your commencement date one of our technical support team will train you online, via a phone call, in all aspects of operating the admin system. The admin system is the backend of the App which allows you to operate your business on a day to day basis. It has been built to be easy to use without any previous technical knowledge however basic computing skills will be required.
Do I get my own Territory / Destination?
Yes you get your own territory / Destination. We look at the area and opportunities for sale in the area. How many possible customers are there, etc.
Areas can therefore vary from partner to partner. The most important thing is you can reach your customers and make a good business.
How will territories be protected?
Each local travel partner is awarded sole rights to a territory as part of their Local Travel Partner Agreement which protects you so we cannot sell another destination within the area. You are the only one with licence to sell in the area.
Can I sell my Territory/Destination at a later stage?
Yes, like any other business this is an investment and one of the benefits of owning a business is the ability to sell that business and receive the capital appreciation you have built up over time. Before a sale completes we will need to approve the new owner just in the same way that we do with you when granting the initial destination licence.
