The history of Oneflare 

In the past couple of years, Oneflare has grown from a small startup to an established and trusted business. In 2014, the startup Oneflare announced its acquisition of Renovate Forum, an Australian online renovation community that hosted over 40, 000 contributors who post and share home renovation advice. In the same year, the company received a massive growth of 1635%. The following year in February, Oneflare acquired the Melbourne-based reviews website, Word of Mouth Online. This was a significant acquisition as Word of Mouth is the largest Australian customer reviews site, with over 420, 000 user-generated reviews and testimonials for over 175, 000 registered businesses across Australia. Oneflare reported that its integration with WOMO reviews would accelerate its goal to become the most trusted source for local services. 

How does Oneflare work?

For customers

Customers answer a few simple questions about the job they need done to receive competitive quotes. Up to three experts will respond with detailed quotes and a link to their profile. From there, customers can compare profiles, read reviews, and connect with the right expert for their job.


For businesses 

Businesses can set up a free account by sharing their business details and area of expertise. They receive notifications on-the-go as soon as relevant jobs are available. By responding to the job with a detailed quote, they can make their next customer connection. 



What are the membership options?

Oneflare offers three levels of monthly subscriptions for businesses. Plans are available for all businesses big and small, so there is always the right solution for your business. All plans are available on 3, 6, or 12 month billing cycles with discounts applied for the longer term commitments.
