If there’s a specific user that you are interested in connecting with, you can search for their profile and send them a direct message through the platform. This can be done in a few different ways:
When you log in to your Side Door account, hover over Browse at the top of the screen and select the appropriate option - either Artists or Hosts (if you have selected Hosts, you will be able to toggle between Spaces and Presenters beside the search bar). From there, enter your inquiry or keyword in the search bar to locate a specific profile. Once you’ve found the user you’re looking for, click View to access their full profile. Click Message to send them an initial message, and they will be notified of your request to connect!
METHOD 2 - (For a more detailed search)
After logging in click Manage at the top of the screen and you will automatically land on the Connect tab. Here you can use specific parameters for your search, including Performance Type when searching for Artists, or Location and Capacity when searching for Hosts. Note, if you’re an Artist you will only be able to message Hosts, and vice versa.
