Right now, event organization is field in high demand, and this has lead to growing interest in platforms that let organizers easily find and book the talented professionals they need – just like Uber does with taxis and Airbnb with apartments. In this article we’ll explain our case for why you should make a custom offer in the growing talent booking sector, show how such a project could provide you with a route to a profitable business – and offer some useful tips on just how to go about the whole process. Artist Marketplaces are platforms that connect creative music industry professionals with people looking for talents. These services offer talents and organizers a secure and convenient way to make contact, while earning their operators revenue from each successful transaction – as well as additional income streams from memberships of highly-featured PRO accounts.
These platforms offer users a wide variety of services – from tracking down professional artists for private events like weddings and corporate parties, to ordering new musical compositions with all rights included. Exactly what is on offer depends on which options you choose – and these can be tailored to your business priorities and local market conditions. The idea of an Artist Marketplace might seem a little narrow at first. But booking professional talent has always been, and still remains, an expensive business – and one that demands a platform specially designed to support the whole process. And for the business owner, this focused model can have major benefits, turning around rapid results from your investment.
Benefits For The Artist
Naturally, as when creating any new online marketplace, the marketplace owner must first immerse themselves in the needs and ambitions of the user: and for artists and composers, this means attracting bookings and commissions.
The key to success here is giving artists the ability to offer a clear window onto their unique personality and talent by posting videos, photos, and music samples. It also means offering an effective search and filtering system for clients to ensure those looking to hire talents or order new works will quickly find suitable candidates. Artist Marketplace Platforms allow all this to be put in place with ease.
These marketplaces are a great opportunity for bookers and performers – bands, solo artists and singers, stand-up comedians – to find each other remotely. It makes for a great deal from both sides: bookings for the artist, and a fair price for the booker.
The platform has the potential to offer an ideal space for talents to promote themselves, get seen, and get hired – no matter the genre the artist works in or their level of experience.
Importantly, our platforms also work as guarantors of fair financial relations between booker and artist. Once an enquiry has been approved, a fee is charged to the booker and held by your payment system. The performer gets paid after they fulfill their booking.
Benefits For The Client
Artist Marketplaces also provide a host of benefits for clients booking talent – beginning with a highly efficient search process, and building on this with the ability to create trusting direct relationships between artist and booker, without the need for costly agents.
Search for your favorite genre - or post a request
The search for artists has never been so easy. Customers can make use of a carefully laid-out search system, or post custom requests and receive musicians’ proposals in response. A flexible system of filters and a wide price range maximise the chance of finding the right artist, whether you’re organizing a simple party or looking to score your next movie.
