Quick Tip: Set A Realistic 'Pay Range'

Posted by Drew Stoga on September 4, 2012

moneyWe all know how important pricing is these days. And really it is just as important to customers shopping for cars as it is to those shopping for entertainment and party vendors.

Your potential clients need a realistic idea of what you charge for your services. That's why every GigMasters Profile comes complete with a 'Pay Range.' You'll find your Pay Range to the right of your main Profile thumbnail photo, along with other important info like your rating, location, etc.

Pay Range

You can edit your Pay Range in the Profile tab of your Control Panel (click 'Edit' for 'Profile Details').

Now, when it comes to setting your Pay Range, we strongly encourage you to keep it realistic, otherwise you risk pricing yourself out of not just potential gigs, but even hearing from potential clients.

Trust me when I say that we wish every gig you booked through GigMasters paid hundreds of thousands of dollars. But it's seems like providing a realistic Pay Range would be much more beneficial to you than jacking up your Pay Range sky-high. In other words, you want to advertise what you actually charge.

The Pay Range feature is really all about attracting the right client for you. If you're only using GigMasters for high-end gigs, then by all means set that range high. Just keep in mind that the high end of your range can't be any more than ten times than your low end. That's to keep anyone from setting unrealistic ranges.

Bonus Tip: Display Past Quotes
Did you know that in addition to your Pay Range you can go a step further and display actual recent quotes on your Profile? This is another important piece of the puzzle. Read more here.
