While many Eventective businesses enjoy tremendous success from our Pay-Per-Lead Program, just as many businesses listed on our site see these Competitive Leads as a nuisance. As a result, lead messages are lost in their inbox. And with the increase in the number of Referrals, so are some potential clients.
Receiving Competitive Leads via email is an option that you need to turn on in your Lead Preferences. (Read the Lead Preferences Article to learn more.) We also require you to log in to get planner contact information when you receive a Referral.
Planners Interested in You
Referrals are generated when a planner is interested in learning more about your business, and clicks the Request Pricing button either on your listing—or more frequently, on the browse page.
After filling out an Event Request, the referral is sent direct to you at no charge, because the planner selected to contact your listing. Other businesses may receive the lead if the planner elected to send Competitive Leads—but those businesses will be required to pay for the contact information, while you get the info free of charge.
Log In to My Eventective
When you receive a Referral, you will see all the event details in the message, except for the planner’s contact information. To view the contact details, you must be logged in to your Eventective listing. Simply click on the link in the email, log in or register, and go to your My Eventective Page. On your My Eventective page, you will see a notice on the listings that received direct requests:
This link takes you to your Event Manager, and automatically filters to display only Referrals.
To view the event details, including contact information, tap or click the Referral to open the Event Timeline. The Event Timeline displays all the contact information in the Event Header and gives you three easy ways to contact your prospective client.
Click on the contact email address listed to send a message using your personal email. On any mobile device (or call-enabled computer) tap the phone number to connect immediately. Or, simply send a reply to the planner using the Eventective messaging system.
Be Sure to Respond
It is very important for you to respond to your Referrals. These planners have selected your business and submitted a direct inquiry. Be sure to respond—even if it is to tell them that you cannot accommodate their event.
Always respond to every Referral!
Referrals and Competitive Leads both come from Eventective@noreply.eventective.com. Please add this address to your safe-senders list so potential business is not ending up in your junk folder.
