Last week I attended a (btw awesome) Reebook yoga event with Tara Stiles and ended up having a conversation with a yoga teacher who said she was struggling to find a good booking system for her classes. I told her about Fynder, which I only myself just found out about thanks to meeting their Head of Brand Meredith at Tablecrowd dinner with Honestly Healthy’s amazing founder Natasha Corrett the previous week (yep, I have been doing my fair share of networking in the London health scene recently). I realised that I should probably do a post about Fynder as it seems like a great option for yoga teachers and anyone looking for a booking system.
I managed to get a few questions down with Brian Schuring, founder of Fynder and co-founder of TBY favourite pilates studio chain Heartcore.
What are the main benefits of Fynder for yoga teachers?
Fynder’s scheduling, booking and payment system makes it easy for yoga teachers to manage and sell your classes online whether you have your own specific studio(s) or work from several locations from rooftops to coffee shops. Fynder’s mobile friendly system allows you to enter your schedule and information once and have it instantly appear on your website, Facebook page and mobile app. With Fynder, you can also customise your own branding and uses a pop-over modal which integrates easily into your existing website.
How’s the response been so far in the market?
We are super excited about the response to Fynder to date and proud to partner with studios and teachers around the UK such as Fat Buddha Yoga, East of Eden and Nike Yogaflex. We also specialise in working with large retailers and earlier this year launched a bespoke solution for Sweaty Betty to power online booking for the brand’s in-store classes.
How does Fynder’s pricing compare to competitors?
For our subscription service, Fynder works on a per instructor model at £8.50/month. So if you are a one man band (awesome) then you get charged £8.50/month, period. Regardless of how many locations or users you have. Then if and as you grow and add more instructors and teachers, each instructor is an additional £8.50/month. No contracts, no hidden fees.
