2. Have an eye-catching Service Name
Your service name is likely the first thing that a potential event organiser will see about your listing, so you’ll want to make sure that it’s eye-catching , but also explains clearly what your customers can expect from your property. If you offer something unique and different make sure this is mentioned in your listing.
3. Make sure your photos show off you in action
Your photos are the best opportunity you have to really show your potential customers what to expect, so you’ll want your photos to be clear, well-lit and to show as much of your service in action. Make sure to take them with a good camera or a smartphone with a high quality camera. If you really want to go the extra mile, there are photography services available that will make your photos look professional. We also recommend uploading 4 to 5 pictures , so really take your time with this. Additionally if you have a video on YouTube of your service in action, you can easily upload onto Vendoir.
4. Turn on instant book
Instant book is a feature that enables event organisers to book your services without your approval beforehand. If you’re confident that you’ll always be available at certain times, it can improve your number of bookings in two ways - firstly, event organisers like the ability to book without the hassle of having to request first. Secondly, Vendoir’s ranking algorithm favours listings with instant book enabled.
5. Reduce your minimum required hours
Reduced number of hours for your service, can be frustrating - they aren’t always worth the hassle and sometimes you can end up making a loss. Because of this, a lot of vendors have a minimum number of hours you can book them for. However, our early traction suggest that vendors who are more flexible with their working hours tend to get more bookings.
6. Don’t cancel your reservations
Once you’ve got a booking, make sure you see it through - Vendoir doesn’t look favourably upon vendors who cancel. If you know you’re going to be away or have plans, block those dates off on your Vendoir calendar, to avoid this inconvenience from occurring.
7. Keep your response rate at 100%
Your response rate on Vendoir is the percentage of messages that you responded to within 12 hours over the past month. Make sure your push notifications are enabled so that you never miss a message or a booking .
8. Think carefully about your pricing
It’s tempting to go straight in for high rates when you first create your listing - but this will only put event organisers off, especially if you don’t have any reviews yet. First, check the pricing of similar listings on the app, and make sure you’re not above this. Try lowering your pricing when you first start out, just to build up some bookings and good reviews, and then bring it back up again later on. Alternatively, get in touch with us on firstname.lastname@example.org for more advice.
9. Make sure you get good reviews
This might sound obvious, but it can still be tricky! You’ve got your first booking - now make sure you get a good review for it. Be friendly welcoming and on time for your booking, respect your guests’ privacy, and make sure you respond to their messages. Ask them if they’d kindly leave you a review, and leave them a nice review as well.
This isn’t by any means a definitive list, but using these tips should get you started on the path to increasing your bookings and making the most out of using Vendoir.
