Thinking about expanding your catering business by offering cooking classes?
Want to book walking tours of your neighborhood from your local craft supply shop or book store? How about booking an outdoor photo workshop or weekend retreat?
If you’ve ever tried to book a class or a tour, out of town or while on vacation, you know how challenging that can be. It can be even more frustrating if you’re on the other side trying to confirm who actually has paid for the class, whose going to show up and if you have to make a last minute update – will your attendees find out about it in time.
Live workshops, classes, weekend retreats and tours are a great way to attract new business and add additional income. This can help you also drive more traffic through your doors with just a few clicks – but in order to keep expenses and admin time down you’ll need a reliable and affordable booking engine to do it.
If this sounds like something that could work for you & your business, then you may want to check out an online booking platform like Rezdy. This software company is based in Australia but they’ve created a full service booking engine that takes the frustration out of booking and promoting your offline events – online.
