If you’re just starting to study Tarot, or you’re looking to develop your skills, read professionally or even to grow your Tarot business then you’re in the right place. Over the next year Simply Tarot is launching a range of new Tarot study support services including our Study Group, accredited Tarot courses and the Simply Tarot Marketplace. Read on for more information.
Simply Tarot Study Group
As part of our recent customer survey we learned that you’d like more interaction and direct support from us as you’re learning to read. So, our first step has been to set-up this Facebook study group which we’d love you to join.
We’d welcome any ideas you have about the types of activities or guidance we can provide in the Study Group, or let us know about any particularly tricky Tarot issues you’re having and we’ll do our best to help.
Jenny, who will be leading the way with this Group, has been reading Tarot with much success, for over 15 years. Jenny also authored the Tarot House Deck, Simply Tarot spreads, reading guidance and in-depth Tarot card meanings. Jenny and her Mum, Patricia, have now also launched Magickal Quest.
The aim of our Facebook group is to make your journey as a Tarot reader a less lonely one, and to find fun and unique ways to help us all develop as a Tarot readers – personally and professionally.
At some point over the next two months, we’ll be launching our first online, accredited Tarot course. We’ve been working on the course for a while now and we can’t wait to get it polished and released to you.
There’s still time for us to make additions and changes, so again if you have any particular topics or subjects you think should be covered, please send us an email or comment in the Facebook group.
Simply Tarot Marketplace
We then aim to launch an ethical Tarot reading marketplace upon which successful Tarot readers can promote and sell their readings. Simply Tarot receives thousands of visitors every month looking for authentic Tarot readings but they’re unsure of the process and who they can trust.
As an ethical Marketplace, we will bring transparency to the buying process by operating an open feedback system. We will ensure that all our Tarot readers undergo proper checks and a rigorous application process.
This allows us to offer a series of assurances and protections to our customers that they can’t get elsewhere. Whilst this is a lot of hard work for applicant Tarot readers, the rewards will be more than worth it when your application is successful.
Marketplace Application Process
This essentially means us checking out that you’re a bone fide person, with a genuine interest in Tarot who has the ability to interact and engage with people at a level suitable to providing personal services.
We will then require the Tarot reader to provide 5 free Tarot readings via the Marketplace, and achieve a satisfactory level of feedback to succeed.
When successful, Marketplace Tarot readers will then be able to charge for their readings via Simply Tarot. This approach has the added benefit of enabling us to provide a number of free Tarot readings; helping to keep Tarot accessible to all.
Once a Tarot reader is “live” their profile will display open feedback from their previous customers and Tarot readings given – a bit like Amazon or Ebay but for Tarot readings! This will help our customers make better informed choices about who they’re buying from and what they can expect. It also encourages Tarot readers to make every experience a top notch one.
We will also hold all Simply Marketplace Tarot Readers accountable to a published and agreed set of terms and Code of Conduct. Customers will have the option to report incidents or escalate concerns they have to us. We will seek to provide a fair and impartial decision at all times.
Don’t worry. We’ve not forgotten the needs of you, our Tarot readers. Trying to make a living as a Tarot reader can be lonely and difficult. Finding the right audience and platform to promote yourself on can be even harder. This is where we come in.
Simply Tarot Marketplace Readers will get to join a fantastic community of like minded people, and enjoy the benefits of a buzzing Marketplace with access to an engaged customer audience. What’s more we’ll offer a range of business support and professional development opportunities to make sure we’re always helping you grow.
This is the start of a major journey for us. We hope our journey will change the landscape of Tarot reading online forever. If you’re interested in take part, please join our Facebook group or sign up to our mailing list (in our website footer) now.
