One of the cornerstones of your Metafy Expert Application will be the people who vouch for you. Think of it as similar to giving us references, in a job interview.

How the Metafy Vouch System Works:

Once you’ve filled out the application and submitted it for approval, you will have a profile link that incorporates your Display Name. So if the display name you enter is pikachu, your Interim Expert Profile link will be That link is the one that people will use to vouch for you.

When users view that page, they’ll see an interface encouraging them to vouch for you. When they click it, they’ll be able to leave you a written recommendation. They’ll also be able to view comments left by others. The only requirement we have is that the people who vouch for applicants have a Metafy account.

If they’re wondering what to say, you can encourage them to discuss ways you’ve helped them to improve, tournament wins, or other expertise they’ve personally witnessed. Although all vouches are considered equal, the vouch interface will indicate whether the person vouching is a student or a Metafy Expert, on your profile.

People leaving vouches will also be asked why they vouched for you, and to check one of two boxes in response:

  • Because I want to support them; or

  • Because I want to book a session with them.

This selection matters because once you go live as a Metafy Expert, three of the accounts who vouch for you will be emailed unique codes for a free session with you, each worth up to $50. But only those who select that second option (and are not Metafy Experts) will be eligible. Be sure to mention the giveaway, when sharing your link, to motivate people to vouch for you during the application process.

When the winners are selected, Metafy chat windows will be opened up between you and the three winners. This is so you can easily reach out to them to encourage them to book with you, and to iron out any details that come up. The vouch codes have a fairly short shelf life because they’re designed to launch your new Metafy coaching practice, so time is of the essence. If there are less than three winners, it means there weren’t three qualifying vouches. If you’d like to claim those unused vouch codes to incentivize other potential students, contact the Coach Success team.

How Many Vouches Do You Need?

We don’t have a hard-and-fast number, but if you haven’t cleared the double digits within 48 hours, you should keep gathering vouches. In fact, if you haven’t heard from us about your application, it may be because we’re waiting for your vouch count to go up. We check early and often, so time is of the essence.

Some applicants express frustration with our social media follower requirements, and with the vouch process. But there’s a good reason for these rules. Metafy doesn’t do much marketing — if any — to grow your business. As a result, we look for experts who are able to hustle to make their business a success, and the ability to attract followers and those who are willing to vouch is a strong indicator. The last thing we want to see is experts joining the platform but being unable to succeed.
