Answers to Questions
WHO IS PARE?
Founded by professional tour manager Brandon Breitenbach, we are a team of artists and industry veterans who are dedicated to sharing our unique business model, as well as our extensive experience, to help artists. We represent thousands of shows played and millions of records sold via our collective touring careers.
WHAT IS PARE?
Pare is 100% unique in that allows any artist, regardless of demand, to independently book events through a clean and simple mobile application. It streamlines every aspect of the booking process, from managing tour schedules to signing paperless contracts and accepting electronic payments, ensuring that the artist is in control.
WHY DO I NEED THE PARE APP?
The life of a touring artist is always on the move. With the Pare app, you can quickly access your upcoming show information, view and accept offers, sign contracts, communicate with promoters, manage your calendar, and so much more—all from the palm of your hand. All of your data syncs with your Pare online account, so you always have the latest information at your fingertips.
IS PARE EXCLUSIVE?
Absolutely not! While we are more than capable of functioning as your sole booking representative, we are also meant to work along side your current team. Your manager, tour manager, or current agent will find Pare to be a powerful tool to save time, money, and hassle.
WHAT DOES PARE COST?
Pare is $19.99/month or $199.99/year, and comes with a free, 30-day trial. No commissions, no hidden fees. You will not find a more cost-effective, powerful solution for your performance career!
HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO TRANSFER FUNDS TO MY BANK ACCOUNT?
Once you settle each show date inside of the Pare iOS app, your deposit funds will automatically be transferred into your bank account within 48 hours. No checks, no worries.
WHAT ARTISTS USE PARE?
Pare is a universal solution for all professional performing artists, regardless of the size of your fan base or the number of shows you play. If you are paid to play, Pare can be a huge difference-maker in your career! Our roster is made up of artists of all sizes and genres, major-label and indie, from hip-hop to country to electronic to folk to rock to metal.
WILL PARE CONNECT ME WITH NEW ARTISTS AND VENUES?
Yes! Pare can and will do this in two ways. First, we give you the advantage with promoters by presenting you as professionally as possible. By making your offer form your initial point of contact, you create the perception that you are an act who is going somewhere. Second, our database (coming mid-2016) will provide a network of thousands of promoters and venues for Pare artists to create new contacts and build show lineups.
DO I HAVE A DEDICATED AGENT WHEN I WORK WITH PARE?
We do not assign agents to each artist because Pare puts you in control of your touring career. Our business model for booking/touring is new and progressive, streamlined and efficient, alleviating the chore and hassle of the traditional model. But Pare is more than just an app. We are also a team of industry veterans behind an amazing piece of technology who are available anytime to share our knowledge and experience.
HOW CAN PARE HELP ME GROW MY FANBASE?
By creating a new, strategic approach to touring and performing, we help you not just play more shows, but to play better shows. Better shows means more attendance, more exposure, and more relationships with fans.
DOES PARE DO MORE THAN HELP ME BOOK SHOWS?
Yes, much more! In addition to our one-of-a-kind contracting and deposit collecting process, Pare is meant to improve every aspect of your touring business, saving you time and money. With Pare you can advance shows, record expenses, manage your calendar, track your attendance, prep tax documents, communicate with your team, and reach new show contacts. We function as your virtual tour manager, bookkeeper, agent, and advisor.
WHY DO YOU NEED MY BANK ACCOUNT INFORMATION?
Good question. Your business checking account is linked to your Pare account in a similar fashion as accounts are linked to a Paypal profile. Only in this case, it is for you to receive show deposit s on flat guarantee events. Money never leaves your linked bank account in Pare, and we do not bill you for your subscription this way. Also, your bank account information is 100% secure and invisible to all promoters, Pare artists, and the public.
WHEN DO YOU CHARGE MY DEBIT/CREDIT CARD?
At the end of your 30-day, free trial, you will be billed for your first subscription payment. If you chose monthly billing when you created your trial subscription, you will be billed $19.99 (and each 30 days from that point on), or if you chose yearly billing, you will be charged $199.99.
DOES PARE HAVE A REFERRAL PROGRAM?
Yes! Refer a friend, and if they subscribe, you will receive $10 off your next subscription payment. Please email us directly with your referral and we will give you instructions on how to receive your discount.
HOW CAN I CANCEL MY SUBSCRIPTION?
Though we hate the idea of seeing any artist on our roster leave, we realize that sometimes it happens. If you want to cancel please email us at email@example.com.
I FORGOT TO CANCEL MY SUBSCRIPTION. CAN I GET A REFUND?
Once a subscription has renewed on the 1st of the month, we are unable to refund the charge, so we ask that you stay on top of your subscription billing. Please make any necessary upgrades or cancellations prior to your billing date! If you realize your account has renewed and you’d like to cancel, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. This will ensure that your subscription will not renew for the following month.
IS PARE AVAILABLE OUTSIDE OF THE USA?
Very soon! We will be unleashing Pare in Canada, Australia, and Europe in late 2016.
