ClassBento

We have started the new year with a BANG and are receiving a huge demand for all kinds of  workshops at the moment. New Year = New Skills !

Your classes sound fantastic and we would love to work together to send you new students to fill gaps in classes + send private group bookings. It’s a great way to boost your bookings early on and set you up for a successful year! We already have 1 of the teachers based at St Margaret’s House on our platform and they are receiving great bookings and increasing their revenue.

You can check out our site www.classbento.co.uk  

We normally only take 15% commission from the bookings. There are no hidden fees and we only make money when you do and you won’t pay a thing until you start to get bookings. There are no sign-on fees or contracts.

  •  Sign Up now and pay only 12.5% for January and February 2022

You choose your pricing, duration, capacities, etc to ensure the classes are financially viable for you.

We take care of everything for you in the backend – admin, transactional, and reminder emails, collate your reviews, etc.

You will have access to the backend system where you can contact students, rearrange classes, update your classes, and more.

We can build you a widget to integrate with your own website, this uses our backend system but we only take 3.9% commission from these bookings.

Our content team is happy to create the listings for you and we get back to you just to make sure you’re happy with how they look. All we need is some basic information about the classes and most of that will be attainable from your website.

We market your classes by paid-for advertisements on social media and search engines and we are also heavily featured in the media.

We will also be donating to Mental Health UK

Let me know if you are interested in hearing more about how we work.

Drop me an email at suz@classbento.co.uk or give me a call on 07583 116726

Look forward to hearing from you.

Regards

Suz
