Good morning! I’ve been really enjoying this series where I talk about topics that appear in my day to day teaching. I’ve found these topics discussed in teacher forums also and I wanted to share them with my audience. I hope that other teachers will find this helpful as they start their mornings!
I expanded my studio through many ads on Facebook. Facebook has been my absolute best friend when I have to find new students. I’ve written posts about how I’m looking for new students and that I would be happy to help with anything related to the piano. My studio grew three years grow and it nearly doubled in student count. I couldn’t believe it. I was absolutely astounded at how fast it grew in one day. If I had to recommend the number one method of garnering new piano students, I would recommend utilizing Facebook. I currently use Facebook ads to run $1 ads per day. If I have one student reach out to me for lessons, the ad pays for itself for the entire month and more just from one piano lesson. It’s worth it for me because I don’t always have the time to repost my ad everywhere throughout the day. Another method in addition to Facebook is to utilize Facebook groups. Post your ads in Facebook groups in your neighborhood. Some groups have rules where they only want you to post once a month or at the beginning of each month. Be sure to follow those rules when you’re thinking about posting your ads. I’m excited to hear any other ideas you might have about marketing! Let me know what you think of my current marketing strategy and I wish you the best of luck in this field!
