If you are a local business or service provider, chances are you
a. Want people to know what you do, and
b. You want a steady stream of customers, and
c. You cannot do everything yourself and there are simply not enough hours in the day.
This is where we come in, we can help you get the message out there about what you do and we can help you expand your reach and connect in the local area.
Our collaborative marketplace platform allows you to extend your reach by showcasing your business via our brochure listings creating a unique localised supermarket of local products and services. This creates a strong go-to resource for Local and a much stronger ability to be found digitally.
We not only list your business but provide you with tools such as our:
- e-commerce marketplace functionality where you can sell, rent, trade or book your products and services and create coupons and offers
- a self-service tool to share your news, blogs and deals
- a self-serve ability to set up and and market your events through our platform
- An opportunity to share your business, offers, events and news via our marketing channels and reach.
- Access to professional support of our BizBuddyHub Associates
We don’t only provide the online platform and local area marketing support which is great value for our members, but we create and host lots of opportunities to connect with the local community and like-minded businesses through our coworking days, breakfast events, coffee catch ups, workshops and socials.
Why do we do all this, I hear you ask ?- Well, we believe that a strong local economy starts with community and through connection and by building strong authentic relationships based on trust and shared values.
We know that business can be very rewarding, but it can be isolating and sometimes extremely hectic and especially when you are in business for yourself there is not always someone to ask when you come up with a challenge. That is why we focus on building a strong peer-2-peer mentor base and promote collaboration. We encourage our members to reach out and ask for help and advice and to pay it forward.
We are the connector, the hub that you plug into that allows you to feel like you are part of something bigger and not in it alone.
There is lots of value in our membership plans, pick one that suits your business and go from there. Join now and build the collaborative community of the future that lives, works, shops local and collaborates global.

“I have really enjoyed being involved with BizBuddyHub, the connections I have made have been top notch and the events I have attended have a been either a lot of fun or very informative, often both at once! This group is filled with people who are incredibly giving and incredibly smart in their area of expertise. This is a well connected community and I am very thankful to have stumbled upon them when I first arrived in Melbourne 8 months ago”.
