A gig can be in different states depending on how far in the booking process it is. The possible states are:
- Requested gigs
- Unconfirmed gigs
Let's go through each of them...
Opportunities are events in your area without a DJ. An opportunity is your chance to connect with the organizer and get a gig.
Direct requests are gigs where you've been picked to send an offer. Direct requests are your best chance of getting booked. An organizer can pick you if they find you in the search results and send you their event details.
How can I get more requests?
Improve your Cueup profile. Make sure you have a professional-looking picture and add testimonials.

You can also make it easier for people to book you on your website or social media by inserting your unique booking link. Find your booking link in your settings and copy-paste it to places where people find you.
Unconfirmed gigs are jobs where you've already made an offer, and it's waiting to be accepted by the organizer. Chatting with the organizer increases your chances of them completing a booking. Tell them how interested you are in the job and ask them what they need for the event.
If the organizer accepts your offer, the gig is confirmed, and you should prepare to play. You can see all contact info for upcoming gigs and exchange contact details in the chat.
Completed gigs are gigs that you've already played and been paid for. Remember to ask the organizer for a review after the event. Each review improves your rank on Cueup and makes it more likely to get booked again.
Lost and Declined gigs - (archived gigs)
Lost gigs are jobs where the organizer chose another DJ. If you lose a lot of gigs you might need to work on improving your profile or make sure that you chat organizers.
Declined gigs are jobs you didn't make an offer for. In some cases, you're able to undo the decline and make an offer.
Lost and declined gigs show up under archived gigs.
