Tresstle has been developed for the creative community to collaborate, showcase and sell. It is a brand new online events platform that provides you with the tools to run your own fantastic events and reach audiences from around the world.
Why is Tresstle so special?
There is currently no other platform that offers what we do. Tresstle has been developed with the creative community in mind, ensuring that it ticks all the boxes when it comes to hosting the perfect online event.
The event page provides the organiser and the audience with a collaborative, hands-on experience. It consists of one innovative page hosting four spaces; The Event, Tresstle TV, The Schedule and a Meet Us section.
Tresstle TV is an area where you can chat with 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 event, a key part of building a strong relationship between you and your audience.
Who is it for?
Calling artisan makers, lifestyle bloggers, foodie enthusiasts and all small business owners – Tresstle is the new way to engage with your audience online. You may be selling your products, or selling a service. Either way, Tresstle allows you to collaboratively connect with your community, wherever they are in the world.
Specific events like online markets, virtual print & craft fairs and art trails are the obvious ideas. But, Tresstle is a place to find your niche community online. We want to embrace groups and communities to come forward and host their own creative events targeting their ideal audience. We encourage hosts to collaborate with one another – bringing together multiple audiences benefits everyone involved.
Who is it for and what kinds of events can you run?
We accommodate both whole shop events and gift events. The difference being that a gift market points to one product listing within your range whilst the ‘whole shop’ events link to your whole shop in order to showcase your entire offer. Gift events specify a price and the whole shop events specify a discount.
How does it work?
Whether you are looking to be a host or a participant, you begin by creating an account and completing your profile. In order to be a host you send a request and once granted you can list an event.
As an organiser, your dashboard will allow you to view the list of events you are running, and as a participant, your dashboard will display a list of your event applications, showing as pending, accepted or passed.
How much does it cost?
There is a one-off fee of just £10 for both participants and hosts to register to use the platform. You will also gain access to lots of useful resources to help you to get the most out of Tresstle.
For hosts, the event hosting are of the platform is FREE as we want to encourage you to advertise actively for your events and keep them accessible to all.
Participants who register to take part in an event will be charged a platform fee and then the additional charge set by the event host*. This is combined and 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 a host may choose not to take payment for the market and once again only the platform fee is charged.
Tresstle is not an ecommerce platform – you must have a shop hosted elsewhere. ALL sales are your own.
*Admin fees per event are £8.50 and market host fees will vary.
