surgeries or churches? Wherever they are, you can ask to hang a poster publicising your event. Secret 3 Pricing Setting the pricing for the event greatly influences the success of the workshop. You need to feel absolutely
comfortable with what you are charging to your audience, and feel happy providing your valuable time
at this price.
So to calculate a price you feel comfortable with, consider the following questions first:
What is the purpose for you of this event, is it:
• to make a lot of money on the day?

• another reason?

“is it realistic?”
A good tactic to take with pricing is to find out what prices are charged for other similar workshops in
your locality. This helps you establish what your audience will be willing to pay.
To guarantee you know the numbers attending before the event you can ask people to book and pay for
a place on the workshop in advance.
However it really depends how comfortable you are with this, and also what is common practice in your
locality. If it is not a normal procedure for people to pay in advance then they will...
