booqr - your platform for events offering, negotiating and transacting
some of the benefits
The aforementioned service is potentially useful for everyone. Because everyone either once in a while or frequently is involved into such booking processes. Example: It’s your daughter’s 6th birthday; you want to hire a magician to perform a show at the party. Example: You operate a bar and you want to hire a pianist every Saturday night. Example: You are professional musician and you want to play for an audience and for income regularly at different venues.
As such, the advantage is: Through the offers visible on the platform, the market is being organized and structured. The listing provides transparency. As opposed to traditional booking methods which are one-on-one correspondences and negotiations, the booking processes rendered by booqr are transparent and efficient. It is now easier to achieve the optimization and fair terms. We as the operators of booqr believe that the ultimate achievement lies in a democratization of a business process which before, in the times of ineffective one-on-one negotiations, was occasionally defective for numerous reasons.
booqr is the marketplace for all people in the trade. Listing of performances and vacancies: transparent.
So, you may ask, how does booqr cover their own cost and earn income?
We intend to earn income through fees and commissions in the future. Fees and income then arise out of transactional activity: When booqr supported in a conclusion of a performance contract, then booqr deserves a small nominal fee and a small cut in the contract value. In the current campaign phase, we do not charge the transactions at all. In other words, booqr launches transactional services and operations on a totally-free basis. Fees and income do also arise out of third party advertisement services. We try our best to keep the irritation which arises out of advertisement on a tolerable level - in the interest of our patient clientele.
We promise that charges imposed in the future ARE going to be budget conscious.
Obviously, as such, booqr is an absolutely budget conscious affair for our dear clients. Free of charge during campaign periods, low charges on transactional activity only outside the campaign periods.
When compared to traditional methods of booking, there is potential of saving money. In the processes of traditional methods of booking, the charges and all sorts of deductions can be substantial. Thinking about multi-level booking processes which involve numerous middle people. For instance, musician works hard in his home studio in the suburb; wife takes care of paper work, corresponds with agent; agent represents interests in office on 50th floor in skyscraper in downtown, corresponds with booker in another city and country; booker there corresponds with local festival booking agency; local festival booking agency corresponds with festival manager/curator. All in all, the number of middle people can be large, and everyone might want a cut. Consequently the total of deductions leaves very little for the creative artist. Arrangements made as directly as possible bear the potential for substantial savings.
However, is it the goal to cut out middle people? Absolutely not. The availability of booqr for all people in the trade makes available a powerful device for every single one. No matter where and in which role they are involved in a booking transaction. The general availability of booqr to all people does not mean that all people will actually use it. In the example mentioned before, the creating artist may, same as before, restrict their activities to practising and performing their instrument and refrain from any booking activities. Same as before, the agent can act on their behalf, with the only change that now they can negotiate with ultimate end users more directly. And they gain access to information outside of previous territory, thus more new business is enabled. So, among other conclusions: The purpose of booqr isn't to make the human intermediary redundant.
No fee for signing up. No fee for being a member. Fair deals and better economies for all
Availability: First of all, booqr is supposed to be rendered available everywhere in the world. To all people. Every country. Every culture. Every language. Even every dialect. We are aware that censorship and other restrictions which are outside of our control impose limits, but we are confident that the goal of general availability is largely achieved through accessibility in a lot of regions and a continuously increasing number of languages.
Domains: booqr’s philosophy implies the provision of service through the domains relevant to the market.
Full language support: A lot of transactional activity is international. Cross border. From any place in the world to any place in the world. booqr’s philosophy implies the provision of service through the language relevant to the market. We take this challenge very seriously. We begin our operations with an assortment of a few languages first and let follow other ones soon later. We apologize for the inconvenience if the language of your preference is not yet within the assortment. The language element has two aspects. First, having a powerful but complicated system available in native language is an obvious advantage. Second, the arrangement of a performance with a third party can involve a foreign language. Here, the advantage arises out of the provision of the system to person A in language a, to person B in language b, the negotiation in both relevant languages a and b, and the issuance of of one of the same performance contract, in two versions, a and b language. Perhaps useful, because not every A speaks b and vice versa. The aforementioned feature does not mean that we ignore local business, no matter where in the world. It is not uncommon that some people transact only on a purely local basis. For instance local folk bands only being booked by local promoters. We make every effort that their interest in most effective processes is being corresponded to.
Here is opportunity to iterate that:

The security goes like this:You are for instance the performer of an event. For instance, you are a musician and the performance is a concert. At the time when the contract with the promoter is concluded, you both decided to opt for the additionally available security. For that, it is agreed in advance that the normal commission is augmented by a small increase. It is generally the promoter who pays the commission and the premium for the additional security. So you performed your concert, and as compensation you expect the promoter to pay out the amount of money which was agreed in the contract. The promoter fails to pay. For whatever reason. Justified or unjustified. As statistics show, in a number of events it happens that contracting parties run into conflicts after performances. You want your money. And you get your money. From booqr. For this, the arrangement had previously been made. We sort things out.When the promoter’s reluctance is unjustified, you keep your compensation. When it turns out that from neutral point of view it is justified, then you will understand that the compensation will need to be reimbursed.
Optionally, booqr secures the deals. When the debtor fails with payment, booqr pays.
booqr provides funding for selected events and individuals.
It is also in a way stringent that booqr is not charging you any fees for signing up or for being a member. There are only charges against transactional activity.
