Tresstle is a brand new online event platform that provides you with the tools to run your own fantastic events online or take part in them. Developed for the creative community to collaborate and sell.
It is currently in soft launch phase until 1st July 2021 and is open for participant and organisers to register.
Why is Tresstle so special? The USP
There is not currently a single platform that offers what we do so our USP is it’s arrival developed especially for the creative community!
Although, as the creators of Pedddle, we love to direct people to physical markets, when they cannot run and for those with accessibility issues this is a fabulous space to host beautifully branded events. However, the fusion of online and physical presence as a small business is a winning combination and one not to be ignored moving forward.
Our USP can be found on the event page. One innovative page hosting four spaces; The Event, Tresstle TV, The Schedule and a Meet Us section.
Tresstle TV is still being developed. However, it’s an area to chat to your event participants and talk about products, host virtual workshops and demonstrations alongside the event. The ‘Meet Us’ section embeds YouTube videos as a way to introduce the person behind the brand- it’s so important!
What type of events can you run?
We accommodate gift events and whole shop events. The difference being a gift market points to one product listing within your range and the ‘whole shop’ events links to your whole shop!
Gift events specify a price and the whole shop events specify a discount.
Specific events like online markets, virtual print & craft fairs, art trails are the obvious ideas.
But it is a place to find your niche community online. We want to embrace groups/communities to come forward and host their own creative events targeting their ideal audience. By collaborating with one another, pooling audiences, without question benefits everyone involved.
Boutique shop owners hosting launch events. S/S or A/W stock launches working together with their stockists to host launch nights.
Bloggers and Vloggers using their wide social media reach to host events working with creative brands to sell their products.
If you are creative and have a passion for selling your products creatively then you are eligible.
So we know it is a platform to host events….but who can host?
Literally anyone. We ideally like to focus on the creative community to give them their much needed airtime.
So, market organisers, boutique/shop owners, bloggers & Vloggers and collectives of creatives — you are all eligible!
How does it work?
You create an account whether you are wanting to be a participant or a host and then complete your profile. In order to be a host you send a request and once granted you can list an event.
As a participant logged in, you can browse events and click the ‘Apply Now’ button – it couldn’t be more simple!
On your dashboard, under the ‘My Events’ tab, there is a list of events that are pending, accepted or past. As an organiser you also have events you are organising.
How much does it cost?
It costs £5 to register (increasing to £10 from 1st July) to use the platform. You will access lots of resources as a participant and different resources to support organisers.
Event organisers the platform is FREE as we want to encourage you to advertise actively for your events and keep events accessible.
Participants on an event will be charged a platform fee and then the additional charge set by the event host. This gets paid in one checkout once you are accepted onto an event. If you run the event as a collective of creatives no additional fees will be taken over the platform fee. In some instances an organiser may choose not to take payment for the market and once again only the platform fee is charged.
ALL sales are your own.
Admin fees per event are £8.50 and market organisers fees will vary. Pedddle members get discounted fees.
Is it an ecommerce platform?
No. You have to have a shop hosted somewhere else. Your own website or a market place store.
Why? It’s so much effort as a small business managing stock, we don’t want to add to the workload.
If you have any further questions, do let us know and we will be sure to answer them.
