How do Teacher Referrals work?

What are Dabble teacher 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.

Why should I pay to refer my users to register via Dabble?

We understand you can avoid this cost by collecting payment directly. However, by not using Dabble 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 you and your passion. Additionally, your community loses the advantage of Dabble discounts, promos, and gift certificates. While it may not be needed for all events, our nearly 24/7 customer support, automated notifications & reminders, reviews, and no-fuss management of refund and cancellation requests is a huge benefit.

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

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).

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 teacher Dashboard at and select the event in question. You will see the number of students referred by you within your event roster.

Note: Dabble reserves the right to modify or terminate the teacher 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.
