This is Bart - co-founder of Spotted by Locals and a very lucky guy... Since 2008 I've been traveling around (with Sanne - my wife and co-founder) to meet lovely volunteer locals in "our" 80+ cities who joined our project. Ask me any questions you may have!

Hi Bart, great to have Spotted with Locals featured on Travel Massive. Your community of Spotters looks like an awesome bunch! Do you have any tips for people thinking about building communities for their travel brands?

Thanks Ian, I'm delighted too :) Nice question! My top tip would be to it possible and encourage community members to meet in person. Every 2 years we organize a weekend for all our Spotters around the world. Spotters meet each other frequently when they visit another Spotted by Locals city. And currently we have 6 Spotters who met via Spotted by Locals who got married, and 3 Spotter babies :)
We love it!
