We at Eventective talk a lot about Packages and Package Pricing. But what exactly is a Package? One definition of the word ‘package’ is: a proposition, offer, or thing for sale in which separate items are offered together as a single or inclusive unit.
Many venues offer packages that include food and beverage along with the function room as either a buffet or sit down service for a set price per person. This will appeal to the planner looking for a full-service event and has the budget to pay for it.
However, a package can be as simple as the room-only price. This will capture the attention of the budget-conscious planner seeking a do-it-yourself option. Venues can create packages to promote mid-week deals to fill open dates on the booking calendar.
For most event service providers, a package is pretty straightforward. A photographer or DJ may offer different packages that vary in the length of service, or the level of features offered along with their services. For caterers, packages offer different menu items at different price points.
In all cases, the purpose of posting Packages on your listing is to give planners an idea of what they can expect to spend for your services. It is important to provide a range of prices, if possible, list your most basic service, your most common service, and your most extravagant service. By displaying your full spectrum of services, you expose yourself to a wider range of budgets.
Where Budget Meets Cost
Our goal with Package Pricing at Eventective is to provide our site visitors with information that helps them decide on a budget for their event, and find venues and vendors that fit that budget. And just as important, our goal is to connect you with clients whose budget fits your price point. If we can spare you the time spent weeding out clients that cannot afford your services, then Eventective is working for you.
