GigTown, the mobile app that connects local musicians, venues, and concertgoers, is doing something interesting to help you earn more money from your live shows.

For every fan that uses the GigTown app to “check in” at one of your concerts, you’ll earn $5 — even if the gig wasn’t booked through GigTown.

The company has set aside $20,000 each month for this “tip campaign” as a way of attracting new users (both fans and musicians) to the app.

$5 for every single fan that checks into your gig using GigTown. That’s pretty sweet.

This tip campaign won’t last forever, though they project they’ll have enough funds to go at least until the end of 2016. But in the meantime, it’s a pretty great way to make some extra cash from your live sets.
