StarClinch is an online marketplace that has revolutionized the entire process of finding and booking an artist for an event. Along with that, it has also made it easier for artists across India, to get hired for showcasing their talents, while being compensated aptly for it.
There are 14 major categories on the website namely, Live Band, Singer, DJ, Comedian, Anchor/Emcee, Photo/Videographer, Model, Celebrity Appearance, Instrumentalist, Dancer/Troupe, Make-Up Artist/Stylist, Magician, Speaker, Variety Artist.
An artist is a professional and, just as a corporate professional needs a resume, she/he needs it as well. StarClinch.com enables an artist to register her/his profile for free, just like one does it on any job portal. This acts as a boon to the artist as she/he is granted full access to re-edit his profile and share it anywhere on the Internet, to get work.
Artistes can also subscribe to exclusive services by StarClinch.com. There are three subscription plans available on the portal – ‘Have Patience?’, ‘Get Discovered.’, and ‘Instant Gigs!’. All three plans have different deliverables that determine the chances of getting shows for the artistes. Audio-video integration, image-uploading and content refinement services are provided in all three plans, while the value added services differ – from mild or none to top notch.
StarClinch.com has an ever-growing database of 10,000 plus artists, belonging to different genres and disciplines. These 8000+ artists, under 14 different categories, are spread across 104 different cities in India. With these huge numbers, clients are never short of choices while making selections.
StarClinch also believes in constantly improving its services and maintaining the highest standards of quality and transparency. It actively monitors the day-today operations and consistently tweaks processes, website and policies, to provide unmatchable customer experience to its clients and artists.
StarClinch is a moderator between an artist and a talent-buyer, which aims at customer experience. Commenced in 2015, this start-up has today made over 1000 bookings nationwide, engaging more than 1700 artists out of a database of 8000+ registrations. StarClinch has always believed in maintaining transparency for both the artist and talent-seeker
Unlike other online artist booking portals and talent managing companies, entire process of “Artist Booking” is carried out in utmost transparent and efficient way. Business Development team spends ample time in understanding client’s needs and offers options of artists to client, as per his budget. All the artists registered on StarClinch.com, go through rigorous checks and scrutiny before their profile goes live on StarClinch.com website.
Once everything is agreed upon, there is no going back on the finalized terms and conditions, except in certain unavoidable and absolutely necessary circumstances.
StarClinch believes in client servicing, which includes responding to every client call promptly and resolving their complaints and issues in a time-bound manner.
Artists, on the other hand, are compensated as per their true market value and are also updated about client’s expectations and requirements way before the event day. This leaves no room for last minute surprises for both artists and clients.
