We are dedicated to providing the best online platform for musicians - this means ensuring that the work you receive through Encore is relevant, adequately paid, and offered by trustworthy clients.
Displaying sensitive information such as contact details or website links would significantly reduce the security of your Encore account, increasing the chance that an enquiry may be taken off the site. In this instance, you would lose all the valuable benefits you receive when taking work through the Encore platform.
The Encore team puts a lot of time and resources behind acquiring customers, so if they book elsewhere after enquiring first on the platform this damages the business.
By taking work through the Encore platform you benefit from:
- a secure record of all communication with the client
- guaranteed deposits on every booking
- guaranteed payment after gigs
- a watertight cancellation policy
- automatic invoicing and payment analytics
- a dedicated member of the Encore team to liaise with clients (available for group bookings)
How will clients get in touch?
Once you have applied for a job, the clients make the first move. If they send you a message, call request, booking request, or they shortlist you, you'll be able to respond directly to them.
Note: once you have accepted a booking request, you'll be able to communicate freely with the client, sending links or contact details as necessary. Learn more about contacting clients here.
What constitutes sensitive information?

- website names
- links outside of Encore
- email addresses
- phone numbers
- any words alluding to the subjects above
