Platform Features

Those looking to enhance their event experience can easily find the vendors they are looking for, using various search and filter options.

We encourage all vendors to fill out their Listings as completely as possible, in order to have the best chance of being discovered. 

  

Listing owners can provide various details to help other members of our community make better-informed decisions.

The following details are available to all Listing owners, regardless of their Listing Subscription plan.

  • Name
  • Tagline
  • About
  • Category
  • Interests
  • Price Range
  • Contact Email (Not publicly viewable)
  • Address (Map / Driving Directions)
  • Cover Image
  • Image Gallery

All Listings include a built-in contact form so people always have an easy way to reach out to Listing owners.

The email address used when signing up for the platform will be used as the default recipient address, but this can be changed at any time by editing your account details.

Listing owners can have their address shown for quick reference.

Additionally, that location will be shown on a map, providing quick access to directions for users. This is especially helpful for events as it provides easy access to directions to the venue.

 

Members that are logged into our platform, can review Listings to help others make better-informed decisions. As part of the reviews, users can give star-based ratings for specific areas, as well as give an overall star-based rating.

Vendors can build up their reputation by accumulating positive ratings and reviews. Everyone has to start somewhere and may not have their reputation built up, so not having any reviews isn’t necessarily a bad thing.

Reviews are always moderated, can only be submitted by registered users, and vendors cannot review their own listings.

Members can be rated by different criteria, depending on their particular Listing Type.

You can easily duplicate any of your existing Listings, using a super quick, 3-step process.

  1. From your Listings dashboard, click the ‘Copy’ icon on one of your Listings.
  2. Make any desired changes to what will be your new Listing.
  3. Click ‘Duplicate Listing’.

Why would you duplicate your listing?

If you have several similar, but slightly different, services or events that you actively provide you can save time by duplicating them.  

It is really that simple.

To help event organizers easily reach vendors and to help get Listings found in our search engines, NAP (Name, Address, and Phone Number) is critical information to include in a Listing so that we can best deliver opportunities that are relevant to you.

While including a Name (i.e. Listing Title) is a given, Listings can contain the information, in an actionable format (ex. click-to-call) where possible, to make things even more convenient for users of the platform.

Links to Social Networks can be added to Listings.

When a link is added the name of the network and the corresponding icon is automatically added: 

  • IG
  • FB
  • LinkedIn
  • Vimeo
  • Pinterest
  • YouTube
  • Twitter
  • Soundcloud
  • Yelp

If someone chooses to click on one of the Social Networks, that network’s website will open in a new browser tab, so users can stay on the Listing.

Videos uploaded to YouTube or Vimeo can be easily embedded into a Listing.

Example Videos:

  • Business or Brand Introduction
  • Testimonials
  • Product Overviews
  • Guides

Link directly to your own website, allowing you to get more exposure and run visitors through your own sales funnel.

 

Image galleries are ideal for communicating your branding, products, services, etc., and for those that are highly visual, the right cover image could be what makes someone ultimately choose your Listing.

Some suggestions:

Upcoming Event: Upload inspirational photos of what you are looking to build.  Upload photos of past events that you have conducted with the same theme.

Vendor Service: Upload photos showcasing your unique style and solutions.  

Maximum file size per photo: 2 MB.
