Where to find caterers in order to convert them to customers

The idea that helps Caterers

Caterers want to streamline their event planning processes. However, they can't get it because they have difficulty managing multiple events simultaneously..

Therefore, they need to use your solution, e.g. EventEase.

Event Management Software for Caterers : EventEase is a cloud-based platform designed specifically for caterers to manage multiple events at once, including scheduling, menu planning, and guest lists. Of course it is much better than the stuff from Caterease, or EventPro!

How to find Caterers

You can get insights about the pain points of caterers if you listen to them carefully, either in person or online. Listening online is much easier because you need not ask them for a customer interview but you can observe them talking about their problems, out there in their natural habitat. They won’t even notice that you are there, watching and listening to them.

The process, step by step

One process that we can totally recommend is this:

  • Find out where caterers hang out (Reddit, Mastodon, etc.)
  • Read what problems they talk about, and how urgent they are to them. (Did they try any solutions, yet? Did they spend money on anything, yet? Did they even cobble a homegrown solution together?)
  • Enter the conversation: Help them with tips, ask more about their situation and why they are in pain.
  • If you find recurring questions or pet peeves of caterers, create some helpful content for them (e.g. a blog post, a podcast episode, or a video) and share it with them for free, in the same conversations. They will be delighted.
  • At the end of the blog post, invite them to use your solution: Event Management Software for Caterers.

I described the process here in my blog post: Identify a hungry audience.
