How is your tool different from/better than the competition?
We stand out among the competition with our devotion to the GigSalad Community. We know that every person who reaches out to us is planning an occasion that is personal and special, and our mission is to help them create an extraordinary event. That’s why we’ve created our Worry-Free Guarantee. In the unlikely event of a cancellation, we refund the event planner’s deposit and assist in finding a performer as a replacement.

What is the single coolest feature of your product?
Among the many great features we offer, we believe that our review system is one of the most beneficial. Within each performer profile, event planners can tell others about their experience working with the performer. This gives the performer an easy way to show their client relationships and provides reassurance to the event planner that they’re choosing the perfect addition to their event.
