The Fatsoma rep system allows you to take advantage of one of the most valuable forms of marketing, the one that consumers trust above all others and the one that is most likely to drive sales for your company. Word of mouth (according to Nielsen, 92% of consumers believe recommendations from friends and family over all forms of advertising).
Proven to increase ticket sales on average by 20%, the concept is simple. We allow you to incentivise your most influential customers to promote your events online through social networks such as Twitter and Facebook and directly to their friends through messaging apps such as WhatsApp, Facebook Messenger and via text message.
How does it work?
Getting started with reps is easy:

When adding your event, simply set a rep incentive (usually 10% of the ticket price).
- Recruit reps
There are several ways you can build your rep team. You can invite reps via email, post links to your page on social media or by emailing your existing customer database.
- Track sales
Once reps are set up you can keep track of any sales in the Fatsoma control panel.
