A workshop is a short and intensive program dedicated to educating a small group of people about techniques and skills in a particular field.
Workshops enable businesses to make substantial extra income. They are also a great way to attract new customers, particularly if you offer free or low-cost sessions.
Payment for workshops is normally due upfront, which helps with cash flow. Attendees are required to take all sessions in sequential order to gradually build their skill set.
To book a workshop for customers, follow these steps.
- Select an available time on your calendar.
- Book the workshop after making the appropriate selections.
