word of mouth referrals

A lot of guitar teachers work really hard on marketing themselves to attract new students, but they don’t see the results they hoped for. The phone doesn’t ring and their email inboxes are empty, so they start to think that marketing is just a waste of time and their businesses never become as successful as they could be. This is a common problem, and a lot of the time it happens because guitar teachers make one or more MISTAKES over and over again without even realizing it…and those mistakes are driving potential new students away.

In this episode, I’ll hold up a mirror to your teaching studio and to you as a business owner and show you some things you may not want to see! The first step towards fixing this situation is to become aware that you’re making these mistakes in the first place. I’ll get into each of the 5 big marketing mistakes you may be making that are costing you new students and I’ll also give you some solid advice on how to turn things around. Get ready for a reality check that can help you start to make your teaching studio more successful!
