Influence Points Mean Prizes!

Encore is in an exciting position right now.

We’ve gradually been gaining more and more momentum since we first opened our doors to Cambridge musicians back in October 2014, and after successful launches and plenty of positive feedback from RCM and Guildhall, we’re ready to start accelerating our growth even faster.

And this is where you, the Encore community, come in – we need your help.

A lot of you have already been so great at spreading the gospel of Encore and signing up your friends, and we want to reward you for that. To do so, we’re introducing Encore Influence Points. You’ll gain one every time you refer a friend, and there are various rewards as you progress:


10 Points

We’ll feature you on the joinencore.com homepage for a week

We use example profiles to show prospective members what they can expect when they sign up, and to reward you for your efforts, we’ll use yours for a week. The homepage receives quite a lot of traffic!

25 Points

We’ll interview you about your music career so far.

Great for publicity, and we’ll throw in a free coffee (or pint!) as well. Don’t say we’re not good to you.

50 Points

We’ll bring a pro photographer to a location of your choice for a photoshoot.

Again, great for publicity, and this can be for either yourself or one of your ensembles. Make your Encore profile SHINE.

100 Points

We’ll hire a pro sound engineer to record you, either in a studio or at a live event.

One of the first things people ask for when looking for musicians are recordings, and having some good ones will dramatically improve your chances of getting gigs.

Your Influence Points are displayed just under your profile picture:


And your referral link is midway down the About section of your profile:


We really hope you like the sound of this, and as ever, if you have any questions or suggestions for us, give us a shout at [email protected]
