For Talents

What is a service/ listing?

A listing is a short description of your service or performance. Think of it as a short introduction to your act of service. Your listing can include pictures, videos and even audio recordings - everything you think would be helpful for your audience in deciding why they should book you. On your listing you can share all the details you find important - when and where a performance will be held, how long it will last, how much it will cost and if any additional fees are applicable. 

How do I create a listing?

Once you’ve signed up as a Talent and created a profile you can start working on your listing. Just go to create new Listing’ and fill out all the information fields. Don’t forget to add videos - the best way to show people just how amazing you are! Make sure you submit high quality media. This will help your portfolio shine.  

How do I delete a Service?

Simply go to your‘Dashboard’, select‘Services’, and then click the‘Delete’button. 

How long before I receive my payment?

Once you have given the job or the performance and we have received a confirmation of that, we are ready to send the money to your bank account. Itusually takes up to 48 hours for you to receive the payment.

Where can I find my order reference number?

Log in and go to your‘Dashboard’, and from here select‘All’. Choose the service you need and open it - the reference number will be the first number you see below the name of the listing.

When can I leave a review?

As soon as you’ve given your performance you can leave a review about the person or company who hired you. Make sure your comment does not include any strong language, but feel free to share your full experience - your comment will help many people out there to make an informed decision. 

Where can I see my reviews?

Once the job or performance has been given, the person who hired you will be able to leave a review. You can see this review in your‘Dashboard’. Please note that the review will be visible for everyone on the page.

How do I let people know my availability?

You can set your available dates by going to the interactive calendar. Here, simply click on a given date, select a time, and then people will know when you’re available to perform.

How do I set up my cancellation policy?

You can choose from three different cancellation policies: 

  • Flexible: 100 % cancellation fee applies 48 hrs before the day of the job due.
  • Moderate: 100 % cancellation fee applies 7 days before the day of the job due.
  • Strict:  100 % fee applies 14  days before the day of the job due.

How do I set the price of my listing/ service?

You have the option to chose between 4 price structures. 

1.Price per hour:

You can choose your price per hour and estimate the approximate length of your service or performance. For example, if the service or performance will last  or requires around 2 hours, you should set the price for the full two hours.

2.Price per person.

If the price of your service depends on the number of people, so add what you charge per person and then in the next input field add the minimum people you inquire for this service.

3.Price per unit

In the case where your price depends on units, then just set the main price per unit and add minimum required units.  Ex: let’s say you are a real estate photographer and your price depends on the number of bedrooms. So you say that each bedroom will be one unit. 

4.Price on demand/Project

Price on demand is when your service is quite complex and you need to first have a chat with your Client to understand his/her needs. Once you know what the client wants you can send him an offer with your price. 

What is an extra fees?

Extra fees are those such: Traveling fees,  Commercial Licence Fee and everything witch is additional to the base price on your advertised offer. Let’s say for you charge additional 30 € for commercial licence, so the Client/ Planner can use your image with commercial ends. 

What is a special offer?

Special offers are made trough the chat. The Client and the Talent are discussing and if they reach an agreement, the Talent can compose its offer. The Planner can accept it and so the calendar will be closed. This feature is available only on some of our subscription plans. Please check our subscription plans here. When this feature is enabled we recommend both Talents and Planers to always secure their deals trough the platform for safety reasons

What is a group service/listing?

A group service/listing represents Talents service and all the members that provide it. It means that Planners can see all the members that will complete a given order on an Offer. 

Group listings empower a feature that allows to all the members sync their calendars, receive simultaneously the bookings and request, can have a separate chat group for the offer they are booked. Group Listing is a great advertising for your band/team.

How can I create a group service/listing?

You can tap on add new service/listing. On the first step you select Group/Team. Next step is to invite your members to the listing. If they are already users, by submitting their email, we will notify them. Invited members can accept or decline the offer. In the event that the new member is not yet a user of Talent Jam, we will guide him to creating a profile and joining your creative listing. 

I can not add information on the group service/listing page, why ?

Remember that there might be only one admin of group listing. He can invite or delete members from the group. Member who do not have the admin rights can only add/remove media, access the chat, general information and enquiries.

YouTube videos will be permitted, provided that they were created by the Talent themselves.
