Is there a better way to offer package deals?
Yesterday it was the birthday of a student I’ve had since the start of my Italki teaching career. Her father wanted to buy her 10 lessons for her birthday. I usually offer 10 lessons for $140 but because it was her birthday and she has been with me for so long I wanted to give her a reduced price.
We tried three different ways. Firstly, she sent me the package request with the normal price and I tried to change the price before accepting it. I could change some other things about the package but I couldn’t change the price using this method.
Secondly, I tried to send her a lesson offer but I could only send one lesson at a time and she would have to choose the class time instead of getting to choose whenever she wanted if she had a package so it wasn’t ideal.
Finally, we both had to be online and I changed the price of my lessons for all the students. She then booked the package at the reduced price then I changed them back.
So is there a better way to offer one specific student a package deal?
Go easy on me as this is my first month teaching with Italki so I’m still trying to learn how to use the platform. Before anyone says anything about one student getting special treatment, I usually give special offers too long term students to thank them for their loyalty.
