If you're new to teaching, or setting up your listing for the first time, it can be a bit daunting choosing what to charge for your experience. Here are some things to think about when you're setting your price.

  1. Consider the cost of the materials you are providing for your experience. Make sure you factor these in to the total price! You don't want to send your learners home with 80 quid's worth of clay if your experience only cost £50...

  2. Similarly, work out where you are going to hold your activity, and how much this will set you back. Some mentors teach at their own homes, or their learners' homes, but you may need to rent a space if this isn't an option for you.

  3. Think about your group size, and do a bit of maths (eek). If it's a one-to-one session, you need to be charging a total of what you would be happy to earn in that time. If you're teaching six people, you can probably afford to reduce the price to make it more economical for your learners.

  4. A little research never goes amiss! Have a look at similar experiences listed on Eequ to get a feel for other people are charging.

  5. Finally, if you're just starting out, you could always offer some taster sessions at a reduced price to get the word out. Once you get the ball rolling and bookings start flooding in, you'll be able to charge the full amount. 

Remember, we're always on hand and happy to help if you feel you need a bit more support. We've helped many, many mentors with their listings so we've got a pretty good feel for what works. Reach out using the chatbot in the bottom right hand corner of the page, or email hello@eequ.org.
