GigSalad - Waste of time
Needing support at an upcoming event, I turned to GigSalad for help. The next day, they had taken down my request for quotes without attempting to contact me beforehand. That was incredibly unprofessional of them. Taking the initiative, I contacted them to explain...

I am a pretty successful freelance musician but I have gotten very few leads and not closed a deal on GigSalad in over a year. Most of the leads never respond, or never read my quote, and I suspect they use bots to beef up leads

I Have two leads sitting in my mailbox right now, and neither one has been read. I am really beginning to question them also.

I think a lot of these gigs are PHONY! They create phony gigs that you respond to that don't exist. I've been on for about a year and NOTHING yet. I love how they tell you ho...

GS is fantastic. As an artist that's been using the service for a little while now, and as someone who's used every single bid based, high volume, bot flooded gig site there is, I can confidently say that Gig Salad is the best. I've been having good experiences since...

GigSalad claims to help people book talent and entertainment for their events. We used them to hire a company that would set up an outdoor movie screening on our daughter's 13th birthday party. Nothing went well, and I will not be using this service again. In...

This sounds like more of a bad vendor issue. Look at the contract your vendor had you sign. You may have a case for small claims court. GigSalad just list service providers, i...

A couple years ago I started using GigSalad to book myself out for private events. I was using the free service and was getting many leads a week (a couple per day) booking a couple per month. Then came a time where I had more time and wanted to see more leads, so...

The EXACT same thing happened to me when I subscribed to their mid-range service. The number of leads I was getting when my account was free decreased significantly. I downg...

Horrible experience, it's a shame that I paid for a spot on this site 6 months in advance. From hearing a few reviews I thought I'd give them a try, big big mistake. I paid to be a Featured Member, thinking I'll be #1, I was telling people to book me through the...

I can't find "Write A Review" on my main page. Why is that? Happy customers shouldn't have to go to huge effort digging through pages to have to get to it. It's hard enough to get my clients to write a review, but if they get discouraged they won't ever do it. PUT...

Jimmy, It's better for you to send an email, with the link, asking your clients for a review, than hoping they'll come back to the site. People today are very busy, and even i...

They seem to accept volunteer request, and send them out as quote for fee. I question one I received, and ask for more information. The person email me, and signed it was a Memory of Fund for a City of Dover event. The person was rude and seem to have a problem that...
