BigMyGig is an online artist search and discovery tool that helps you to book the best artist for every event. BigMyGig was started with a single focus. An artist doesn’t get enough shows because of poor reach and improper representation whereas a user doesn’t have many avenues for reaching out to the artist of one’s choice. We are trying to bridge this need gap through a convenient online solution. The founders of BigMyGig are alumni of JBIMS. One of them has been an event manager and the other has been a performing artist. They have faced similar problems in the past and this motivated them to come up with this tool to bridge the gap between the event organizer and the artist. For the Event Organiser the tool enables them to search through over 1200 digital portfolios, filter, short-list and share the portfolios that they like. The search engine works on the principle of relevancy. This ensures that every artist requirement is accurately serviced. Using the Packages feature, the event organiser can book a complete Entertainment Package for their perfect event. This tool uses a 3 stage filtering process, known as the Invitation Model. Here artists are sent invitations to create their portfolios with BigMyGig. Artists are invited only when they meet stringent quality parameters. This ensures that every artist on BigMyGig is verified and validated, ensuring 100% quality to our patrons. The platform is truly open and Artists have a lot to gain from this tool. Artists can set their own price and also involve in direct negotiations with clients, with BigMyGig playing the role of a facilitator. With the security of payments, artists can now safely focus on their talent while relying on the BigMyGig tool for their business. With features like direct negotiations, pre-payment guarantee and real-time portfolios, BigMyGig is redefining entertainment delivery.
