Thanks for asking the question on the calendar. This is my favorite part of the site. In my private practice, I have a number of parents and students cancelling lessons in the last minute, which then has me scrambling to find a way to reschedule them. I use this calendar app so that everyone has complete control over their schedule. You can book as many lessons in advance as you like. It also allows you to pay for your lessons online after the confirmation has been sent and responded to. So people will be able to book any combination of lesson or go lesson to lesson. As for the timing, it has a built in 30-45 minute transition time but will factor that in after a lesson is booked. So if you booked an initial consultation at 6:00pm on a wednesday, the calendar program would book me out until 7:15pm. At that point the 6:30 and 7:00 time slots would be changed to start back up at 7:15. Its pretty intuitive. As for group lessons, I will be offering those as well, but as this is a start up, I am focusing on booking one on one lessons for now. When I see a demand for the additional services, I will add them. I also need to be able to find a physical place to host group lesson or workshops. This is an area for growth that I am hoping for within the next six months.
Great Questions. Let me know if you have any more.
Here's the new Golden Cuff Shakedown Blog post for today if you are interested.
going through the blog part ill come up with some questions.
What about monthly subscription with no reschedules? that way you don't scramble, and don't have people paying for less than 4 lessons a month, although the min of 4 per month can still be done at this scedule where people put their own dates in.
Positing wise, one option is fewer, higher motivated , higher paying personal students that audition to be a student. the working some on ebooks a podcasts selling or donations and workshops.
thats a cool calender system.
what are your current time obligations?
has 7 years of public school teaching not giving you enough of a safty net to simply do this full time or whatever time it takes for the next 100 days, ?
