Setting Your Fees As a Pilates Instructor
When it comes to charging clients it can be the part of the business you hate the most. For some instructors this is no problem. But, I have found that many instructors feel awkward when it comes to setting rates, charging clients and late cancels. So, I wanted to give you this mini workshop, a pep talk of sorts on setting your rates. Here's a quick introduction to the course:
Do You Talk Too Much?
When we are apprentices our teacher trainers are doing their hardest (hopefully) to make sure you know every nook and cranny of an exercise. When you take a session or are in a workshop they are correcting every move you make. “Head in, shoulders down, arms long, toes flared, spin on your head, flip over and blah blah blah…” Unfortunately as you come out of your program you end up teaching with way too many words. All your client here is “wah, wah, wh, blah blah.” How do you know? Aside from repeating yourself over and over again? Take this mini course and find out!
How to Set Up Your Cancellation Policy
Cancellation Policy ~ Yes, you need one!
I know that confrontation can be hard for many instructors. I also know that we get close to our clients and it’s difficult to charge them when they are sick, forgot, or simply got stuck in traffic. I mean sometimes life gets in the way and our clients miss Pilates and they cancel late. This course will cover:
- What “late” is
- Why cancellation policies are integral
- How to inform and follow through with a cancellation policy
After watching this course please meet me in the forums. I would love to hear your questions and experiences.
