What are organization packages? How should I format my organization packages to acquire the most clients?
Organization packages give organizers the ability to offer all-inclusive services based on their interests. Many clients prefer to know how much a total organization project will cost beforehand to help them budget and make a booking decision. Package descriptions should be detailed and describe exactly what is being offered. Clearer and more detailed descriptions have a better chance of being booked.
Can I offer organization services in per hour pricing format rather than packages?
Yes, you can! You have the option of offering services on per-hour basis, in all-inclusive packages or both. In addition, with all invoices you are able to add additional expenses and provide discounts before submitting them to the client. Of course, in all-inclusive packages, all additional expenses should be included in the total pricing ahead of time.
How does initial consultations work?
Organizers can choose to offer free initial consultations, but this is not required. You carry out your business and services as you normally would – we provide you a great platform to run your services and also bring you clients from our user community and make it easier for you to perform your services efficiently and cost-effectively.
Do you have some advice for posting my services to Betternest?

What is the difference between in-person and online packages?
Depending on what you, the organizer, wants to offer in your packages, services can be rendered in-person or online. In-person services involve going to the client’s home, while online services typically do not. If you choose to offer online services, be clear in how you intend to communicate with your clients and how you will deliver services online.
