Skillshare offers two different student referral programs, depending on your location. Some users are eligible to participate in a referral program in which both referring and referred students can receive a $15 gift card award (the “Gift Card Award Program”). Users who are excluded from participation in the Gift Card Award Program are eligible to participate in a separate referral program, in which referring students receive a free month of Skillshare membership upon successful referral (the “Free Month of Membership Program”).
- For more information on the Gift Card Award Program, please see our full Terms here.
- For more information on the Free Month of Membership Program, please see our full Terms here.
Note: A list of countries excluded from the Gift Card Award Program (and therefore eligible to participate in the Free Month of Membership Program) can be found here.
How to invite a friend through a general referral link
You can invite a friend to sign up for Skillshare membership through the Refer a Friend section of your account.
To do this:
- Click on your profile picture icon in the top right corner of any page
- A drop-down menu will appear with an option to Refer a Friend
- Depending on your referral program, a pop up window or new page will appear with your individual referral link and buttons to share your referral on social media
Note: Depending on your location, this drop-down menu may read Invite Friends, Get $15 instead
How to invite a friend through a class referral link
You can also invite a friend to Skillshare by sending them a referral link to a specific Skillshare class.
To do this:
- Navigate to the class you’d like to share
- Click on Share on the right side of the class page
- A pop up window will appear with the option to copy your referral link for this specific class or share the link on social media
When your friends sign up for a membership using your referral link, they'll receive a month of membership for free. You’ll receive your referral award after your friend completes their first full membership payment, so long as they don’t seek a refund afterwards.
