Overall Satisfaction with Planned

Planned helps cut through the noise for companies and individuals searching for the best, most dynamic, and reliable event industry vendors while helping vendors reach the right target clients. We've had a great experience meeting brands in search of virtual DJ services.

Pros

  • Hands-on oversight of execution of a virtual event and client success management
  • Connecting event industry professionals with companies in need of their services
  • Highlighting services that an event industry professional or company offers

Cons

  • Making the platform/software more functional overall so the majority of negotiating/contracting/invoicing can easily happen all in one place.
  • Drawing in more leads for vendors, or offering support to vendors to teach them how to attract more leads. We don't see much traffic to our listing at all.
  • Making it simpler for companies to do business together internationally. We had some issues with fees getting eaten up from converting currencies and went back and forth for a while trying to figure out how we'd accept payment from a client.
  • Streamlining communication overall and making it possible for multiple team members to get email notifications about communication happening on the platform.
  • Advertising our services to relevant companies/brands on their online marketplace
  • We were able to get repeat business from a new client brought to us by Planned
  • We were able to learn more about what types of virtual event services we'd like to grow as a business, as a result of working with Planned
  • We have not seen a financial ROI for our business yet because we have only worked with one client on the platform and it has been costly for us to accommodate this client
