It’s come to the end of the year! Not sure about you, but it’s been an exciting year for us here at VenueScanner… we started 2017 with a single mission…
To make Event Organisers’ lives easier… by making venue search easy
Thank you for all the wonderful Venue Hosts who’ve made this possible and partnered with us to promote your venue to thousands of new Event Organisers each week.
We’ve been seeking out venues for hire with amazing spaces, affordable spaces, creative spaces and unique spaces to market your venue for free to our Event Organisers. Here are the highlights from 2017:
1) 10 Minute Self-Serve Listing #Timesaver
Any venue, anywhere can list themselves on the platform in under 10 minutes. Ensure you list all of the spaces within your venue, so that when an Event Organiser searches for your venue, all the spaces will appear together
2) Relevant Enquiries Only! #Timesaver
We’ve launched advanced #venuetags to enable you to select exactly what searches you want to appear for (and which you don’t).
3) Personal Account Manager #Timesaver
We’ve learned that our lovely Venue Hosts are often super busy and under-resourced. So, as well as making the listing process fast, we have a team that can do all the work for you… create your venue profile, optimise the listing and set the #venuetags. In the latter part of the year we’ve begun helping out venues with their digital marketing as well
4) 2000 New Event Organisers Every Week #Newcustomers
We’re rapidly growing our customer base every week with thousands of new potential customers seeing your venue.
5) Personalised Discovery Through Filtered Search #Morebookings
100+ venue types, event types and venue features for Event Organisers to filter their search. Maximise the #venuetags to full effect and take maximum advantage.
6) Personalised Marketing Help #Morebookings
We have lots of data and insights on what drives venues more enquiries and bookings. So we’re now offering support to any venues who need it on photography, tagging, content marketing, performance marketing.
7) Calendar #Timesaver
The VenueScanner Calendar is live. This means that there is less to and fro on enquiries. Event Organisers see your availability and reserve a space quicker. You can update the calendar or we can integrate with your own calendar so you don’t need to change a thing.
8) Enhanced Digital Marketing “Premium” #Morebookings
We launched our premium marketing service with a select number of venues and saw great success… venues saw a +200% uplift in enquiries. This includes being featured at the top of search pages, on the homepage and promotion through digital marketing channels… all tailored for you by our digital marketing experts
9) New Cities #Morecustomers
10) New Rewards #Morebookings
