3 Reasons Why You Need To Be Consistent In Marketing Your School All Year Long
Is marketing your dojo supposed to be a some-of-the-time thing, or an all-the-time thing?
Most martial art school owners seem to turn up their marketing activity during the so-called “busy” times of the year (during fall and right after the New Year), and then tone it down at times of the year when things are supposed to be slow (during the winter holiday season and mid- to late summer).
But is that the best approach to marketing your martial art school? And, what are the consequences of being inconsistent in our marketing? Certainly, it makes sense to take advantage of busier times of the year by increasing our marketing, but doesn’t it also make sense to market hard when business is slow? What will be the fallout over the months ahead if we decrease our marketing now?
In this podcast episode, Mike answers these questions as he explains why you should be marketing your school in the same consistent manner all the time, even during slow times of the year. Listen to this episode and find out why what you do (or don’t do) in your marketing today can have a big impact on your bottom line in the months ahead…
In addition to the above, Mike also discusses why you need to be selective about what you post online. And in the tip of the week, Mike talks about SEO and how to avoid getting your martial arts website Google-slapped, and where you time and money is best spent today in your personal online marketing efforts.
