How do Facilitator Referrals work?

What are Find My Zen facilitator referrals?

You will receive a unique URL for your event once your submission is approved and live on the site. You can choose to promote your event through this URL (i.e., on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, LinkedIn, or via email). For anyone you refer who purchases a ticket to your event, you will only be charged a 5% fee even if you've allocated marketing above 5%. Sometimes all it takes is a few emails, tweets, or posts on Facebook to make a big difference in terms of event sign-ups! Please note, referral fee bonuses are not eligible for private events with a pre-negotiated fee split, and be sure to read the notes below about confirming referral attribution.

Why should I pay to refer my users to register via Find My Zen?

We understand you can avoid this cost by collecting payment directly. However, by not using Find My Zen you lose the ability for us to manage payment collection and processing just 24 hours after your event - not to mention the awkwardness of asking for money when you should be selling yourself and your passion. Additionally, your community loses the advantage of Find My Zen discounts, promos, and gift certificates. While it may not be needed for all events, we believe our nearly 24/7 customer support, automated notifications for sold-out events, event reminders, reviews, and no-fuss management of refund and cancellation requests are seriously worth the 5% fee.

Where do I find my unique event referral link?

You can find your event’s unique Share URL by visiting "Manage Event" on your Dashboard (this URL will only appear once your event is approved and live on the site). You will also receive your unique event URL via email when your listing goes live. If you have any troubles finding your unique event URL, send us an email at hello@findmyzen.com.

A few notes:

  • You may see different URLs for different dates of your course any URL we give you for a specific course will work for any date of that course.

  • Referral URLs are case-sensitive. Be sure to copy carefully (or just copy/paste with your mouse or keyboard). Any alteration will result in an incorrect URL (it won't go to your course and it won't count as a referral).

  • The credit for a referral link can be broken if the customer browses away from your page while registering and sometimes when they are directed to sign up for a Find My Zen account. Please encourage them to click the referral link after creating an account again just to make sure the referral link is captured.

Where should I share my link?

You can post your link to social media accounts (Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest, Twitter, LinkedIn) or simply send it to your network via email. Make sure to copy/paste your entire link, otherwise, you won't receive credit!

Can I see how many people signed up using my referral link?

Visit your facilitator dashboard at http://www.findmyzen.com/dashboard and select the event in question. You will see the number of students referred by you within your event roster.

Note: Find My Zen reserves the right to modify or terminate the facilitator referral program at any time. Referrals are not applicable for events that are canceled for any reason. Referral splits do not replace a negotiated fee split for a private event.
