Thanks for stopping by for the latest installment of Encore Backstage, your behind-the-scenes pass to the latest and greatest developments on the Encore platform!
Today we're thrilled to announce that you can now select specific audio or video from your Encore profile to include when you send a job application.
Customers nearly always want to see relevant samples of your playing when they're deciding whether to book you. You may have a fantastic video of you playing in a jazz style, but this is of little interest to someone looking for a folk soloist!
You may have various showreels on your Encore profile, or a variety of videos showing you performing in different contexts. Now, you can choose the most relevant sample when quoting for gigs on Encore.
If you haven't yet uploaded any media to Encore, head to your profile and add some.
The next time you apply for a job on the Jobs page, you'll see a new dropdown box inviting you to choose video or audio:
When you click this, you'll be able to choose from a range of audio or video options to send to the client. Each option corresponds to an item of media you've already uploaded to your Encore profile, such as YouTube videos, Soundcloud, or MP3 files.
If you can't see an option here, try uploading more media to your profile first.
We hope you'll find this a helpful addition the next time you apply for an opportunity on Encore. As always, we'd love to hear your feedback on this or any other part of Encore - simply get in touch here.
