Why are Artist rates not shown any more?
After our initial release of AGNT (Version one of the major concerns that artists had was that their rates were shown. Many Artists were not comfortable with showing their rates. However, in order for our searches to provide accurate and useful results to Organizers, we still felt that there was a need to include a search by price range.
We removed the “maximum” that an Artist wants to be paid and are now only asking for the minimum that an Artist wants to be paid. Search results will turn up matching Artists within an Organizers budget, but it will never display the amount that the Artist is willing to accept.
If you are not sure how much to offer your Artist, offer based on your budget. Once the Artist receives the booking request, the Artist can then decide to negotiate the booking rate with you.
