PROTOCOLS FOR STAFF COMMUNICATION AND RESPONSIBILITIES
Taking a closer look at your studio’s processes will provide you with a custom set of protocols for staff to follow for when the customer walks in, to the information given in their first dance class. When protocols are followed this ensures that your service is created in the same way from start to finish giving a consistent experience for the customer and a professional look for your studio.
OPERATING AND SETTING UP WEB-BASED DATA SYSTEMS
One of the most effective ways for managing and operating registration is hands down offering online enrollment through a web-based data system. This is a hassle-free system without all the paperwork. There are also so many other tools that come with an online registration system that can keep clients more informed and decrease the office questions by over 50%!
TIME MANAGEMENT SYSTEMS
Being able to recognize your own personal strengths and weaknesses, will provide knowledge on how to best use these traits to manage your time. Organization and better efficiency of your work habits will create productive time management. Ensure that you are using proper planning steps and methods to maximize your time. This will enable your studio to be more productive than ever before. There are some great time-saving tools for social media, HootSuite and Social Booster allow you to schedule your posts ahead of time.
EFFECTIVE MARKETING USING SOCIAL MEDIA, EMAILS, AND FLYERS
Social Media management is an art, and mastering it can bring your studio a lot of business. Make sure that you share a balanced mix of professionalism, fun, and inspiration. Email is a great way to keep in touch with your current students and reach out to potential new customers with newsletters and campaigns. Hand out postcards or flyers to local schools. When you are marketing this way parents are more likely to trust recommendations from the school.
Using customer surveys is a great way to collect important feedback on how your studio is performing and if there is anything missing from their experience that your dance studio doesn’t provide. By ignoring or dismissing complaints, you are effectively telling the customer that you don’t value their opinions. Surveys give parents an opportunity to have their say and feel valued.
HIRING A STRONG TEAM YOU CAN TRUST
Don’t rush the hiring process! To successfully build the culture you want, you have to establish your core values as an individual and as a business, and make sure you hire people that share those same values. The process of hiring a well-trained staff is a time-consuming task, once you find the right candidates for your studio it will be time well spent.
