I’m not getting any bookings. What should I do?
For this, we have a few recommendations:
- Set up 15-minute time slots for students to come & see you. This will allow students to have a “trial” meeting, which costs less (adjusted according to your hourly rate), but allows them to gauge the counselor before committing long-term.
- Optimize your profile according to our guide linked here.
- Ensure that you have gone through all the steps in our knowledgebase & are listed on the platform (with your verification being complete!)
You can also reach out to us for placements in email newsletters sent to our audience.
