If you've been trying to take your business from online into the festival business, this month's article will be of particular importance to you. In it, we discuss how to get responses from those promoters you'll need to contact to get booked!
Have you checked out our Pro Member features lately? We've added some great new ones! Check below for details on how that can help you as a Marketplace seller.
We know that the wait can feel like forever after you've submitted your application to a prospective event. And not hearing back at all can feel very discouraging. But fear not! We've compiled some trade-secrets to help you get ahead of the pack, improve your response rate, and get accepted to more events!
In most cases it's actually what you do BEFORE you contact the event that will set you up for a better response rate in the end:
- Make sure you are contacting the right events for your product/service. Our Pro Search can help you with that. For example, selecting categories from the "Allowed" drop down in the "Exhibitors" box will find events that allow what you do. For more search tips, there's a help link in the top left corner of Pro Search
