So you’ve decided to become a SpaceRep. Good for you! If you’ve ever dreamed of making your own hours and being your own boss, well, guess what: Your dream just came true. That is, it will once you’re actually signed up to be a SpaceRep. (If you have no clue what a SpaceRep is, check this blog post out first and then come back.)
This “how-to” is part one in a three-part series that will answer all of your key questions about living the SpaceRep life. If you’ve still got questions, shoot us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org. (We love getting emails.)
What are you waiting for! Grab a coffee/tea/root beer float, get comfy in your favourite chair, and let’s do this thing.
Step 1: Sign up
Go to www.spacefy.it/spacerep. If the idea of making money for finding useable project spaces around your city still sounds good to you, click the blue button marked Sign up today.
Next we’ll need your crucial deets: first and last name, and an email address and phone number we can contact you at. Be sure to pick out a password that’s hard to crack (a weird combination of letters, numbers, and special characters works best).
Don’t see your city listed? No worries! Send us an email at email@example.com letting us know that you’re interested in listing spaces in your city and we’ll reach out to you once your city becomes available.
All finished? Click Continue.
Next, we’re going to hit you with some legalese. Some terms and conditions, if you will. Our lawyers made us do it! Don’t worry, it’s quick and painless. Once you’ve had a chance to review it, click I agree to the terms and conditions of the SpaceRep Program, then Submit.
You did it! Mini-wave in celebration of you.
Step 2: Verify your email
Next, keep an eye on your inbox: Your verification email is on its way. Once you get it, click Confirm your email address to verify your email address, and boom: You’re one step closer to becoming a SpaceRep.
P.S. Once you’ve confirmed your email address, you’ll see this.
Step 3: Sit tight while we review your information
At this stage, we’ll ask you to bear with us and play the waiting game for a a day or two while we review your profile and verify all of your information. Basically we just want to confirm that you’re not a robot. You’re not a robot, are you?
Once your profile is approved, you’ll receive our official congratulatory email with steps on how to get started!
Step 4: Complete your profile
Does your profile still look like this? Snoozeville, U.S.A., right?
Time to jazz it up! Add a brief bio, link your social handles, and upload a photo of yourself.
Step 5: Sign up spaces
Here comes the fun part: Start finding spaces!
Spread the word that you’re looking for spaces by sharing your SpaceRep profile on your social media pages (Facebook, Twitter, or LinkedIn). To do this, click the icons beside Share Profile. Add a fun message to your post, such as:
“Exciting news: I’ve recently signed up to be a SpaceRep for Spacefy! I’m currently looking for concert venues and rehearsal space in and around Atlanta. If you know of any, send me a message!”
Whenever you want to add a space to your listings, click the blue button marked List a space as a SpaceRep underneath your profile. You’ll see two options: List a space on behalf of space owner and Send your SpaceRep code to a space owner and have them list.
If you’re listing a space on behalf of a space owner, follow these steps:
- Click the List a space on behalf of space owner button
- Fill in the listing form with the space owner’s information (be sure to fill in all required fields!)
- The space owner will receive a notification that you have added their listing
- The space owner will have an opportunity to review all of the information and submit it once they’re satisfied
The listing is now added to the space owner listings and your profile. Success!
If a space owner wants to list their space (using your magic SpaceRep code), click Send your SpaceRep code to a space owner and have them list. Enter the space owner’s first name, email, and a brief message, such as:
“Hey, Drake, when we last chatted you expressed an interest in listing your rehearsal space on Spacefy. Here’s the information you need to sign up your space. Let me know if you have any questions! Thanks.”
Before you know it, you’ll have spaces listed on your SpaceRep profile. You’re living the dream, friend. Next step: world domination!
