In 2014 Kevin started his Roamler adventure. Since then he has been spending about 7 to 8 hours a week on Roamler tasks and has created his very own Roamler Facebook fan page. In this interview he shares tips on how to become a successful Roamler and will also address his “Roamler Fanpage and Invitescorner” Facebook page. Meet Belgian Roamler Kevin!
My name is Kevin, I am 21 years old and I live in Antwerp, Belgium. I have been a Roamler since I was 18 years old, so almost 4 years already!
How did you find out about Roamler and why did you start it?
I found out about Roamler through the Belgian TV program ‘Voor hetzelfde geld’ (translated: “for the same money”). It seemed like a fun way to earn something extra, so I was curious. After that, I immediately downloaded the app!
How much time do you spend on Roamler tasks on a weekly basis?
As much as possible! To say the average; I spend about 7 or 8 hours a week on executing Roamler tasks.
What are your favorite types of Roamler tasks and why?
The real mystery guest tasks, because these are super fun and you usually earn good money! For instance; last week I visited a cafe where I had to drink Trappist beer that was refunded by Roamler. What I had to do? Ask the waiter some questions, like: “Which blond beer would you recommend?”, “Would you recommend Tripel Karmeliet?” and pay attention to how my drink was served. After that, I had to take a picture of my drink and answer a few short questions – that’s all. With just sitting in a cafe for half an hour, I earned some easy, good money! Very enjoyable.
Introduce your ‘Roamler Fanpage & Invites Corner’ Facebook page! What kind of Facebook page is this exactly?
I started this group on my own initiative and the group is accessible to everyone. The goal of the group is to offer Roamlers a quick – Roamler to Roamler – help desk, but also to easily distribute invites. In the group, all Roamlers can share their experiences with each other!
How did you get the idea of starting this Facebook page?
I started this group to get to know more Roamlers and to communicate with them. Furthermore, I thought the group was a great idea because Roamlers can share their invites efficiently.
What is the purpose of this page and what type of content do you post?
The goal of my group is to acquire as many Roamlers as possible. I also think it’s important that Roamlers can share their experiences about certain tasks or about the app itself. As main administrator, I try to post something 3 times a week about information and/or newsflashes of new or upcoming tasks; this can be done by sharing content from the official Roamler Facebook pages, or by creating posts myself.
What kind of Roamlers are following your page?
The group is accessible for everyone and therefore many different nationalities are members of this group. Most members come from The Netherlands and Belgium, but the group also has members from the United Kingdom, Germany and France.
What do you like most about managing this Facebook page?
The communication with Roamlers about tasks is what I like the most. For example about how they execute tasks; this is how I learn new, smart and creative tips all the time. I also like to keep Roamlers informed about every new task.
Do you, as an experienced Roamler, have any tips for beginning Roamlers?
Yes! I have 3…
Tip 1: If you are planning to execute a task in a supermarket, make sure you have headphones on (or in), so the staff is less inclined to speak to you.
Tip 2: When opening the map in the app, you can easily determine a route with tasks you want to do. The more jobs, the more money…
Tip 3: Always be thoughtful. If someone from the store continues to stare at you and watches you every step of the way, know that an employee may come over to talk with you. Be prepared and have a story ready!
Bonus question: If you have any other fun things to add, go ahead!
Roamler is a great invention for me! Not only to earn something quickly, but also to get to know a lot of nice people.
