gigmit FAQ: How to Get the Most Out of It As A Promoter


gigmit is designed to make the work of artists and promoters easier. A lot of things work automatically. At some points, however, it also depends on you whether your activities are successful. This includes, for example, an attractive profile, a gig that leaves no questions unanswered, and good pictures.

We tell you how you can get the most out of gigmit as a promoter.

Optimise Your Promoter Profile

What should your promoter profile look like? To get the most out of it, you start with your profile that is linked with every gig you create. The more complete your promoter profile is the better. An informative profile helps artists when evaluating whether they should apply or not. This helps improve the quality and relevancy of applications received.

A complete promoter profile should include

  • either the official logo or a picture that conveys the atmosphere at your venue/festival
  • a brief but telling description of your venue/festival and also states what kind of artists would usually perform with you
  • media links such as live performances, interviews, or anything else that helps tell the story of your venue or festival
  • social media links
