EVENT vs EXPERIENCE
Sooo… what is the difference between an Event and an Experience? Think of a date night you can’t just drop in for – like getting your hands dirty making each other dinner in a real chef’s kitchen, building a terrarium, putting paint on a canvas, mountain adventures, make your own gelato academy, cocktail making 101 and many many more. Experiences contain an engaging sequence of events that results in an interactive connection with your offering or brand.
An event can be viewed as an experience however there is a slight difference. The intention of an event may not involve your guest to interact with any part of the event. Example a concert, a live performance where there is a separation of the audience and performer, a movie date, a sit down dinner, a party, a marathon race…etc. Think about how is your guest engaged to interact with your brand and you’ll begin to see there are differences between these two terms.
Host an Experience
To design an experience, click on Products -> Add New. Some fields such as Product Name, Description, Short Description and Product Image are fairly straight forward. For the remaining fields, just follow these easy steps:
Select “Simple Product” option from drop down
Select “Downloadable” & “Has Voucher” options. Maybe you’ve created your own ticket / voucher(s) that you want to sell. Whether you’re selling Paint Night tickets or a Spa service, selecting these options will create a redeemable voucher with a unique ID # for your guest for easy tracking. Make sure to choose the “DateNight Voucher” under Voucher Templates.
Make sure to select “Experiences” so that your experience is visible and searchable in our Experience Marketplace!
Choose a few tags that best describe your Experience in 1 word. Choose from popular tags, or create your own.
Submit for review
Once you’re done designing your experience, click the blue Submit for review button. If the experience meets our quality standards our team will notify you with next steps and your new Experience will be searchable in Experience Marketplace.
To create the biggest impact with your listing we’re sharing you our tips that speak best to our audience.
1. Use photos that speak to the experience avoid posters type graphics
2. Images must be hi resolution ( we have an in-house photorgrapher to help showcase your venue)
3. Upload a minimum of 3 images to avoid customizing photo images for your listing gallery. Otherwise your photos will automatically stretch out and you will have to design the photos to fit the built in gallery.
4. Make sure to include City, Province in location field. This will automatically populate our google maps integration plugin with the correct latitude/longitude avoiding your listing showing up in the middle of the ocean.
5. Keep your listing description concise and that speaks to why you are amazing.
6. Choosing categories. It’s not about the quantity it’s about the quality. Choose categories that make the most sense. We can’t control what people will use to find you – use what speaks authentically to the experience you offer and you’ll find more people coming to see you even it means you only selected 3 categories.
