So you've achieved your dream of owning a studio. Congratulations! Once that initial excitement wears off, we're betting that you'll discover just how overwhelming the day-to-day operation of such an endeavor really is. When you choose to run your own business, you're bound to encounter challenges, but with a unique business model at the center of it all, studio management certainly comes with its own hurdles, creating a perpetual learning curve that keeps both new studio owners and veterans on their toes.
Although a certain amount of this difficulty is to be expected for any studio, there's no longer any reason for you to suffer needlessly through each step of the way. All you have to do is reach out for a tool you can use to take your studio to the next level, namely studio management software.
Tools like our very own acclaimed Studio Director software can make a world of difference in virtually every aspect of your business. Let's run through some key ways in which this tool can revolutionize your studio.
Online Enrollment, Registration & Payment
By far the most valuable tool for your business is a website where your customers can research the studio and classes available, and more importantly, register, enroll and pay their bill online.
Help increase your enrollment by being the first in your area to offer Google Search Bookings! When people search Google and your business listing comes up in the results, The Studio Director scheduling capability can now integrate right onto Google. Students can book a class without ever leaving the search results page.
Keeping up with your database, both current and potential students, is key in growing your business. Our "Email" feature allows you to send emails individually or to a group! When emailing a group The Studio Director can show you open status as well as track bounced emails. Additionally, you can "set it and forget it" with our automated marketing emails! You create the email and the timing, and The Studio Director does the rest.
Recital and competition seasons can be a very hectic time of year for many studios. Our Events & Recitals feature allows you to create events, order performances, ensure no overlap in performances by individual students, charge fees, create a basic program, and much more!
Between measuring, sizing, ordering, and charging costume deposits and balances, it's easy to lose track of all the paperwork involved. With options such as posting global charges, entering measurements, and running reports, The Studio Director's Costume Management Feature will take the headache out of the process.
The Studio Director has many features that will save you time. Spending hours fiddling with scheduling and bookkeeping can distract from what you do best! You're the dance experts, we're the software experts. Let's team up to make this year your best yet.
