In today's competitive business landscape, it's important to find new and creative ways to add revenue to your business. One way to do this is by renting out space to create creative experiences. Not only does this provide an additional source of income, but it can also attract new customers and enhance your existing offerings.
Here are some tips on how to rent out space to create creative experiences:
- Choose your niche
First, you'll need to decide on the types of classes or experiences you want to offer. Consider your skills, interests, and the needs of your community. For example, if you're an artist, you might offer painting classes. If you're a chef, you might offer cooking classes. Or, if you're a fitness instructor, you might offer yoga or dance classes. Whatever your niche, make sure it's something you're passionate about and that there's a demand for in your area.
- Determine the logistics and find a space to host your class
Once you've chosen your niche, you'll need to determine the logistics of your classes or experiences. Consider the space you'll need such as NaturalAnnie Essentials Candle Bar & studio, the equipment you'll need, and any other materials or supplies required. Will you need to rent a space or can you use your own? Will you need to hire any additional staff or can you manage on your own? These are all important considerations to make before launching your classes or experiences.

- Set a price point
When setting your prices, you'll need to consider your costs, including materials, equipment, and staff. You'll also need to consider your target market and the price point they'll be willing to pay. Research what similar experiences are being offered in your area and what they charge. Set a price that is competitive and fair.
- Promote your classes or experiences
Once you've set up your classes or experiences, it's time to start promoting them. Use social media platforms like Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter to share information about your classes and experiences. You can also create flyers and distribute them around town, and reach out to local media outlets for coverage. Consider offering discounts or promotions to new customers to encourage them to try out your classes or experiences.
- Create a positive experience
Once customers start coming to your classes or experiences, make sure to provide a positive and memorable experience. Be friendly, welcoming, and attentive to their needs. Encourage feedback and use it to improve your classes or experiences. Word of mouth is a powerful marketing tool, and satisfied customers will be more likely to recommend your classes or experiences to their friends and family.
