If you have classes on your schedule this week’s blog is for you! You know you need more people to attend and love your classes then you could possibly have room for if they all came. But how do you continue to fill and grow your classes? You’re busy too. You have students who love your classes but life gets busy and they can’t always make it to your fitness class as consistently as they want. But, fliering up the neighborhood and posting daily on your Facebook feed is not as fruitful as one would like. And, you have better things to do than pollute your neighborhood and more fun things to share with those on your social profiles. So, how do you get those mats, reformers and other classes filled? You have to be a magnet! But, what does that even mean?
Definition of Magnet: a person or thing that has a powerful attraction.
I know, some of you are reading this and thinking “I am shy.” Or, “I don’t have time.” It’s easy for those who are outgoing or young to be a “magnet.” But, if you have empty classes you have to take the time. And whether you are shy or outgoing you can still create a powerful attraction for you and your classes. Because it’s not about shouting from the rooftops or walking up to strangers.
Answer these questions to guide you in sharing your attraction to the right people:
- How Known are you in your community? What events can you partner up with to share who you are and how you rock?
- Who do you want to come to your classes?
- Why should they come to your classes?
- What problems do you solve that they are searching for the answers to?
- What do you want to be a good example of?
- Who do you want to lead?
- Where can you lead your community?
Being a magnet is not the same as being instafamous or the most popular teacher at your studio or gym. It requires being consistent, authentic, vulnerable and not being afraid to share your gifts.
It’s not about discounts, coupons, perfect pictures or the best clothes and hair. People care about being seen. They care about their problems being solved. They care about what they care about.
How can you get them to see and feel how taking class with you will help them?
Answer that question and you will have discovered the keys to the kingdom of filling your classes no matter where you teach or even the time you teach!
