Firstly, I thank you for having me. This is my first time here and first time hearing about this forum.
Interestingly, I found this site on Google. I searched for "young families in Australia forum" and this was one of the top.
I am doing some research as part of a course that I am doing and it revolves around understanding what your likelihood to pay for a particular service is. The reason I chose hubbub to do this research is because I feel the topic is particularly relevant for those with young families.
Hypothetically speaking, a service is being offered such that you will be taught strategies to save money. This "money saving" is primarily from a consumer point of view, and can include: petrol, groceries, eating out/home, phone bills, internet bills, using the right bank account/credit card, booking cheap airfares and/or accommodation, saving money on purchases of big ticket items (fridges, TVs, laptops, phones).
I've highlighted credit card as credit cards seem to be something almost like a hobby to some so I thought it might be worth highlighting.
For a course/ebook/Offline Course, would you pay (one off):
Which of the following would then be your preference of delivery?
- Some other amount (please specify)
- You would not pay
And I would imagine the amount you would be willing to pay would also fluctuate depending on the delivery medium.
- (Online) Course/eBook (an eBook would differ in structure to a course, slightly)
- Offline Course (i.e. a person speaking)
- Personalised consulting (phone)
- Personalised consulting (face to face)
Can you please specify how much you would pay and what your preferred delivery medium would be? (i.e. the two lists above)
If you were to pick a personalised consulting option, how much would you pay? Could you specify as an hourly/session rate?
As a side question (optional), is there anything in particular in relation to money saving that you find particularly annoying/difficult, such that you feel "I would pay money to understand/learn about x, y or z"?
Obviously this only makes sense if the amount you can save outweighs the amount you outlay, and generally speaking the higher your overall expenses, the more you could potentially save.
The objective of this is to save you money without you spending additional money to save more (i.e. to save money on stuff you'd be spending on anyway).
Could you please be honest with your feedback, even if that means shutting the whole entire idea down? Thanks in advance! I have underlined the questions to be answered above
