Sponsor, Partner, Affiliate or Business Placement
The Discover WA apps and web maps are free to users because we want to help people discover new opportunities. They are supported through sponsorship and fees for map placement. Help people discover your business or community while they are finding new places to do the things they love. Sign up before the apps are released to get a 25% discount, plus an extra three months on your first term (15 months instead of a year.)
Snowmobile WA is the only app that has launched as of summer 2019.
We offer a number of ways that businesses and organizations can be involved.
Businesses pay a fee to be placed on the web map and app. All businesses on the app will have a pop-up with a photograph, description, information about amenities and facilities, hours, and other information. There is no charge to add your business to our database. You can add your business to up three web maps free while the apps are in development. Once we are ready to release the app, pay a placement fee to stay on the web map and be included on the app.
