STG 071 : Growing Your Teaching Business Through Simplicity


word of mouth referrals

Sometimes when you add MORE, you actually end up with LESS. Many times the best way to grow your guitar teaching business is through SUBTRACTION and not ADDITION. Adding more of the wrong features, products and services can actually decrease your effectiveness and hurt your student retention, and often the best way to reach your goals is to simplify things as much as possible.

In this episode I’ll explain why simplicity is almost always the best approach to take in your business, I’ll give you some out-of-the box examples from another business you’ve probably heard of before and apply those examples to teaching guitar lessons, and I’ll wrap up with some tips on how to implement simplicity in your teaching studio no matter what level you’re currently on.
