Hobbylocator.net is the brainchild of Czech company Twenty Four Ltd and has already seen more than 1000 courses being listed on its hobby map, with people being able to easily find classes worldwide.
Those who run workshops across the globe can register themselves on Hobbylocator and pay a nominal fee per month to be tagged on an interactive location map to help promote classes, allowing those looking for a hobby to find the necessary information.
Classes which can be listed span a huge range of subjects, from cookery and art to sports and science. Individuals can visit the website for free, without needing to sign up, and search the map by subject to highlight those workshops which they are interested in.
Once a course is registered on the website, people can send messages and get in touch with the course owners for more information. There is also an option to allow payments through the website, by which individuals can pay for the course or a lesson quickly and easily. Course leaders can receive payments through many different options, including Visa, MasterCard and PayPal and, what’s more, they keep 100 per cent of the course fees.
Once individuals have signed up online for any course, the dates and times booked can be linked to the course leaders’ Google Calendar, helping to keep appointments and classes organised with all bookings stored in a convenient place which can be accessed remotely on almost any device which is connected to the internet.
When courses are listed on the website, the user can enter an informative and engaging description of what is offered, allowing people to get a great idea of what they can learn on the course. Course leaders can also add in information about special events taking place, which can be seen by people searching for happenings in the local area, with other options for mail-outs.
For an extra fee, course leaders can also promote courses by purchasing desirable advertising space on the website’s homepage, allowing them to stand out from the competition.
Hobbylocator is a one-stop-site for anyone looking to take up a hobby or find events in their local area. The innovative concept, matched with the user-friendly interface makes the site the place to be listed for anyone who runs courses or classes, no matter what the subject.
