If you’ve just joined GigMasters as a new member, welcome!  

As you can see, there’s a lot you can do to customize your profile - and we’re here to help!  (If you’re not a new member, feel free to take a look and see what you can do to freshen up your profile!).  

Here are our tips to make sure you’re set up for success:

Customize Your Profile!

  • Description

           First impressions count!  Make sure to start off strong.  The beginning of your profile description                       appears in search results.

  • Travel Radius

           Your travel radius will be set to the maximum radius of your membership.  Set your radius to                             whichever range is best for your business!

  • Upload Photos

           Our most successful vendors have an average of 20 on their profile.  Your thumbnail image is most                 important as it appears first and in search results!

  • Upload Videos

           Vendors with videos get 3x more gigs! Uploading a video can showcase your services and what makes             you, you! If you don’t have a video, that’s okay too.  

  • Choose Categories

           Opting in to the most possible and applicable categories for your membership (ranging from 6-18                     categories) will get you the most visibility possible!

  • GigPay

           Enroll in GigPay to receive fast and secure online payments from clients.  It’s 100% free for our                         members!

Manage Your Leads!

  • Saved Responses

           You don’t want to miss out on potential gigs.  Saved responses help you respond to clients faster!                     They can be edited right from your Member Control Panel.

  • Lead Alerts by Text Messages

           1 out of every 3 bookings goes to the vendor who responds first.  Never miss a lead by opting in to                   receive our text message lead alerts.

  • Download ‘Leads by GigMasters’

           Our iOS and Android app helps you manage your leads on-the-go for free.  Stay connected and make               sure to download it now!

  • Respond Fast

           Getting in touch with the client first is so important.  Check your average response time from your                     Dashboard tab and make sure you’re above average!

  • Follow Up With Clients

           After you respond “yes” to a lead, you’ll receive the client’s contact information.  Reach out and let                   them know why they should book with you!

  • Offers

           Showcase any packages, services, or promotions you are offering!  This adds customization to your                 profile, as well as a direct lead from the client.

Get Booked!

  • Search Results

           Utilize our Search Results Analyzer to track your location, category and booking dollars in comparison             with your competitors!

  • Rankings

           Your search result ranking is based on your primary category, location, and booking dollars over the                 previous 6 months.  Make sure to record all your GigMasters bookings, and rise up the rankings!
