Encore Blog

Refer Friends. Get Paid.

No, this is not a joke. We really are going to pay you real money for simply inviting your friends to Encore.

First things first: you can now invite anyone in the world to Encore, regardless of where they studied. Just make sure they register by clicking your referral link.

We’re going to pay you 5% of the total booking value every time someone you referred to the site gets a gig through Encore.

We won’t pay you in Encore credits or Monopoly money, but real cash. As soon as you start earning money, we’ll send you an email to discuss payment options.

The easiest way to explain is with some examples…

Let’s say you share your referral link on Facebook, and your friend, Wolfgang, joins Encore as a result. A month passes, and Wolfgang is soon booked to play an hour of classy piano music in a London bar specialising in Austrian beers. He’s paid £100 for the gig using the Encore booking system.

Now, here’s the exciting part. We’ll pay you £5 straight away! Not bad, eh?

Let’s say Wolfgang also plays in a piano trio, and they’re booked for a private dinner through Encore. The fee is £600 for the whole evening. Wolfgang earns £200 for himself, so you earn £10. Everyone’s a winner.

This happens every single time he’s booked, and for every friend you refer. We think it’s a pretty cool way of rewarding you for bringing people to our site, which becomes more exciting with every new musician who joins.
