Are you looking for new ways to attract customers to your dance studio? Word-of-mouth marketing is one of the most powerful methods that you can use, especially since existing clients are your most valuable advocates. By providing excellent services and creating referral incentives, you can encourage a steady stream of referrals from happy customers. In this blog post, we’ll share strategies that will help you get more referrals for your dance studio!
Establish a referral program with discounts or rewards for clients who refer their friends
Set up a referral system to track when clients refer their friends. Give an incentive for clients to refer their freinds such as a free class, discount, or a reward like $25 to the pro shop for each friend who signs up for class! Don’t be afraid to give out these rewards… consider how much that new client is worth to you an incentize your customers accordingly!
Create an email campaign to send out to your current clients about the referral program
Utilize every form of communication you have to inform your current clients about the referal system and get them excited about it! Use email campaigns, SMS text messages, and flyers posted around the studio. Email campaigns are a great way to remind them frequently. You can even set up automated emails to go out when a friend is referred or when a reward has been earned so that they can get excited about what they have earned.
Ask existing satisfied customers to leave reviews for your dance studio on online platforms such as Yelp, Google, or Facebook
Positive customer reviews can make all the difference. Reach out to your existing satisfied customers to ask them to leave reviews foryou on platforms like Yelp, Google, and Facebook. Their honest feedback is invaluable in helping you spread the word about how much your happy dancers enjoy your classes! Be sure to ask people to leave a review at times when they are especially happy with your studio (after recitals or after their child accomplishes something new!)
With a referral program and email campaign, you’ll be on your way to growing your business. Your customers will love the discount or reward they get for sending referrals your way. Additionally, having existing clients leave reviews of your services on online platforms like Yelp, Google and Facebook is incredibly effective in both establishing trust with potential new clients and increasing the visibility of your business. By following these three steps, you’ll start to see how rewarding it is to invest in client loyalty. Invest some time in an effective referral strategy today and watch as it pays off in brand loyalty—and even bigger profits for you down the road.
