What are the basics I need to know to host an event on Dabble?
Here’s a quick cheat sheet for how to list an event with Dabble:
Payment. As a teacher, the more you teach, the more profit you are eligible for.
Dabble handles all customer service, marketing, sign-ups, and payment processing. We pay you within 1-3 business days of the event via Venmo. (You’ll need to set up a Venmo account if you don’t already have one, but don’t worry! It only takes a few minutes, and you can do it through your submission with us.) If you can't set up a Venmo account for any reason, we can pay via PayPal, check, or ACH. There may be a delay or small processing fee subtracted outside of Venmo at this time.
Event Times. Classes typically do the best when held on weekday evenings and weekend days. If you're interested in teaching at other times, feel free to experiment.
Event Lengths. As a host/teacher, you are able to set the length of the event. As a general rule of thumb, most events last 1.5 to 2 hours.
Lead Time. We recommend scheduling an event at least 3 to 6 weeks in advance. It generally takes us 24 hours to process a submission, and to maximize your ability to sell out an event, we recommend that it be live on the site for at least three weeks. Feel free to schedule multiple dates for your event. Some teachers give us 3-4 months of dates at a time.
Venues. Events are primarily held at public venues such as coffee shops, restaurants, and office spaces. For guidelines on finding the right venue for your event - if you don't already have one - please check out how to find a venue or explore Peerspace.
Event Size. As a teacher/host, you are able to set the minimum and maximum students you'd like to accommodate. Consider the ideal experience you're looking to provide to determine this. Is a hands-on, intimate setting your goal? Then set the maximum lower. Is it a lecture-style event where you seek to maximize your income potential, and you have experience handling larger groups? Try for a larger maximum number of students.
