“Live on Demand offers a great way to find out where my fans are and to plan events effectively ” - Eric Ries
How do we manage expectations?
The campaign starters know from the moment he or she starts a campaign, that it’s uncertain if, when and where an event is happening. Throughout the first stage (subscription and seeding stage) it is made absolutely clear to the starter and the people joining, that nothing is certain until we have contacted the speaker or their representatives. Every person or company backs the crowdfunding campaign with a simple pledge. Money is only withdrawn from their account when the critical mass is reached, a booking is made and the date is set. Every fan knows this.
How do we set a price in seeding stage?
With our network of partners (speaking agencies and event organizers) we have made estimations of the most common requests. For each request we estimate the budget and the capacity. Based upon that we set a price. Of course we don’t know your fee, but there are costs that we do know upfront. Such as the rental of the location, event organization and marketing.
When are we going to contact you?
If demand for a speaker his high we will contact them or their representative(s). No action is taken before we have word on the availability and willingness of a speaker to take part in the event.
What happens next?
If you’re up for it, we meet and discuss the opportunity. Hopefully we will come to an agreement. If that happens, we connect you to the starter, the one fan that got it all going. Based on your terms and conditions we set the event to "option stage" and we provide a new price and critical mass as well as a date and location. If enough people join during the seeding stage, we make the booking final and the event takes place!
