The MagnaPass Guide to COURSES

Published on Saturday 23 November 2019

Just like any job, if you don't have the right tools you're potentially causing yourself an unnecessary headache. There are a number of things you can use, but having a simple, reliable and flexible online booking system.

Through our years of experience working with hundred of independent professionals and small businesses in the fitness and wellness industry, we know how difficult it can be to juggle all of the variables that are involved in providing a course. Setting up online content, the pricing, tracking payments, attendance lists, client details, scheduling the course, and much more!

When selecting an online booking system to deliver on all of these, here are some of the main features you should look for:

1. Setting up your course online.

This one seems a bit obvious, but not all online booking systems offer the option to set up courses. So from the get-go, you will need to ensure the software you're considering offers this option.

Providing the online booking system offers this, the next step is setting up your course so you can promote it, take bookings and receive payments online. 

2. Scheduling your course.

3. Options to allow bookings after the course starts

People can still book onto your class at full price after it has started (if you wish).

4. Pro-rata payment options for your clients.

If people do book late, but you don't wish to charge them full price, you can set up pro-rata payments. This will automatically calculate the amount that needs to be paid.

5. Drop-in booking options for your clients.

People might not want to or have the money to book an entire course upfront. You can allow drop-in bookings to take place as an alternative option. Set your drop-in price, could be used to encourage they purchase the entire course for a discount.

6. Shareable links for clients to book.

Once you've set up and configured your course, you're going to need to get people to book! You can share links to the course on social media, mailing lists, even WhatsApp groups. However you wish to get your services out to your regular clients and potentially reach new ones, make sure you have a link that you can send people to.

Public profile.

7. Tracking bookings, clients and payments.

See when you get a booking and who booked, when they booked, how much they paid, their name, email, bookings history, manage any refunds, etc. Track course purchases

8. Making changes to your course.
