Getting relevant events

We’ve listened to your feedback on making your matched results as relevant as possible. We know our algorithm isn’t perfect, but by using filters in your dashboard you can get a juicy list of events to apply to at your leisure. Budgets too low for you? Try adjusting the budget filter.

Filters for Preferred Cuisine

Seeing too many events that don’t match what you’re offering? For food & drink suppliers, apply the preferred cuisine filter - this will show you events where the customer has specifically said yours is their favourite cuisine. Also, make sure your tags are super specific to your business - we recommend having 3-5 tags.

Manage your tags by clicking Manage your Account and then edit Your Business.

For photographers, filter by styles. Florists, by tags.

Messaging

Customers like to meet the person behind the business so take a minute to fire off a quick message after you’ve submitted a quote to add a personal touch. Not only is this a great way to sell yourself and your services, but it dramatically increases your chance of landing a booking.
