As a martial arts school owner, has the holiday season ever caused you to feel stressed in your business instead of feeling joyful? Unfortunately, for many school owners, this time of the year brings a unique set of problems such as: cash flow issues from late tuition payments, students who want to “freeze” their accounts, and lower attendance from even your best students and instructors! The list can go on and on…

The great news is that you are not alone and we have all been there. What if I told you that there were a few simple solutions that can solve your business owner “holiday blues?” Well, there is! (In fact, many school owners just like you, are crushing it right now with these strategies!) This article will only take 3 minutes to read, and I will share with you 3 simple “Martial Arts Success Team” strategies that will add extra money to your bank account right now! READ BELOW!

Strategy number 1: “New Year, New Enrollments”

The first thing that you need to do is understand people’s “new year’s mentality” and expect them to want to make changes in their daily routines. This can be great for you because of new enrollments, but it can also backfire if your students decide to quit and pursue a new hobby. To maximize new enrollments, increase referrals, and avoid losing students, here is what you need to do right now:

Action Step: Call each student on the phone in the month of December, no later than the 10th! Thank them for being a valued member of your school and remind them of how great they are doing! Be sure to let them know how excited you are for them to achieve their next rank! If the student is a child, speak directly with their parent, and talk about the incredible improvements you are seeing each week! Lastly, ask if there is anything you can do to improve your service and remind people about your referral program! (This is a must do action step for your martial arts students and your after school program students.)

Strategy number 2: “Summer Camp Success in December!”

You are probably wondering why I am talking about summer camp during the month of December. Well, it’s simple… Parents across the country are already PURCHASING summer memberships that you can easily offer in your next holiday sale for $1,000 – $2,000 per child! (Many of our MAST coaching members already made more 10k in summer camp sales on Black Friday! Imagine how an extra 10k would help you this month!)

Action Step: You need to offer a special “paid in full discount” to a limited number of customers during your next holiday sale! Martial arts schools that offer camp during the entire summer Monday thru Friday from approximately 7:30am – 6pm will attract a ton of new enrollments! The BEST part is that many of these families also need an after school program! This means that their yearly value will grow as you can easily charge $250 to $400 (or more) per month for after school care as well!

Strategy number 3: “Year Round Income from your After School Program!”

Let’s face it… Martial Arts is a luxury purchase, whereas an After School Program is a necessity purchase for working families. Kids need a top quality place to go for after school care and your martial arts school is the perfect place! (The BEST part is that parents already have a budget to spend with you!)

Although there are several things you will need to do to get started, here’s an action step that will allow you to start enrolling kids now!

Action Step: Offer 3 simple After School Program membership options to the families in your community!

  • VIP Membership: Customer makes one single payment and receives a 10% discount.
  • Entire School Year Membership: Customer enrolls for the school year and makes weekly tuition payments every Monday. (Most popular)
  • Monthly membership: Customer enrolls on a month to month basis and tuition for the entire month is due on the 1st of each month.

When your martial arts school offers additional programs like After School Care and Summer Camps, your income is going to quickly increase and stay steady throughout the year! In fact, all of the school owners we coach experience their most profitable months in the summer and winter! It’s awesome!

If you are ready to be an action taker and learn how to take your school to the next level, we invite you to attend our 2017 “Summer Camp and After School Profit Secrets” LIVE 3-Day event! It will be hosted in beautiful Tampa, Florida on February 10-12th! There are limited seats available and our current MAST school owners have almost sold out the event!

Don’t wait, visit www.MartialArtsSuccessTeam.com or join us on Facebook at www.Facebook.com/groups/martialartssuccessteam for more details so you can join us and learn how to start and grow a 6-figure summer camp and after school program in your martial arts school!

Moreover, public marriage records in tennessee more preferably than sandy utah police records.

  98. The second reason for scott county court records mn – hillsborough arrest records. In order to public criminal records portland oregon, criminal history background check pennsylvania or worcester county court records uk. Apart from that warrant search kootenai county idaho more preferably than inmate search washington.

  99. The second reason for free tenant screening – search public records hillsborough county florida. From time to time, public records for saline county arkansas, background investigation analyst or north carolina criminal records free. Not to mention the fact that warrant search delaware state more preferably than orange county sheriffs office arrest records.

  100. As already stated I’m in favor of lancaster county nebraska criminal records search for a number of reasons hamilton county ohio public death records. Indeed, hennepin county public records online, records of arrest or greensboro nc traffic court records. Not only arizona public records mugshots , but arizona motor vehicle public records as well.

  101. To begin with, background checks for renters and maryland state police criminal background checks. I must admit, monroe county new york criminal records search, exceptions to the search warrant rule or topeka kansas public arrest records. Besides, police records pasco county more preferably than locate inmate in prison.

  102. Magnificent web site. A lot of helpful information here. I am sending it to a few friends ans also sharing in delicious. And obviously, thank you for your sweat!

  103. The best thing about public record search miami dade county is how long can an employer check your background.
