The secret to growing your studio is retention

Quite Simply, the more students you retain the faster you’ll grow.

It’s the most frustrating thing as a studio director.

You have big goals to grow your studio, but then come back after the break and find you’ve lost dozens of students and have to start from scratch!

You end the year on a high…

The parents are thrilled, the students are beaming and you can finally take a deep breath after the crazy-intensity of the end of the year.  You’re proud and happy with where the studio is sitting and hoping for real growth next year.

But then the first week of classes rolls around and…nothing…

The emails start coming in, “Emily would like to try soccer and we think it’s a good idea for her to do a team sport.”  It’s so frustrating as you were hoping to start the year with strong numbers, but now, you’re back at square one. 

Without a plan for Retention, you risk coming back to smaller classes – which is scary after the summer cashflow drought….

Unless we have a plan to stop students falling through the cracks, we’re left HOPING that students will come back.

Let’s get real – here’s what poor retention is really costing you…

“FERRIS WHEEL” GROWTH

Just when you get your student numbers up, they fall again – meaning you go around and around, trying to break through the plateau.

THE STUDENT SCRAMBLE

When you realise that you need to ramp up your numbers, you quickly have to get more students through the door – costing precious time and $$$.

BLOOD, SWEAT, TEARS

When you discover the secrets to retention, you’ll find it’s a lot easier to retain a current student than attract a new one.

85% student retention is your aim.
If you have less than this, you’re just creating more work for yourself after the break…

“Chantelle has helped me re-discover the FUN that needs to exist in my studio. It’s so easy to become overwhelmed by everything that needs to be done, we often lose sight of the little things we can do to make a child’s eyes light up. These are the very things that keep students coming back and raving to their friends. I now have a toolkit of ideas to boost the FUN FACTOR in my studio!”

Let’s repair your retention

Learn the secrets to BOOSTING LOYALTY in your studio and creating a more stable student base.

  • Feel the relief of CASH FLOW CONSISTENCY, without penny-pinching over the summer
  • Gain more time to FOCUS ON GROWING THE STUDIO by not having to scramble for students every month
  • Motivate your teachers to improve your retention and create a STUDIO FAMILY that everyone adores
  • Train your students to VALUE THEIR LESSONS & educate them on the benefits of sticking with their development.

Stop students falling through the cracks by motivating your teachers to retain more students

It’s hard when you’re not on the front line to get your teachers on board with retaining students. I’ll share my proven system of simple steps that you can give your teachers to make it easy for them to retain students.

Why are students leaving your studio?

We need to focus on the cause, so we can easily implement a solution.

  • Identify the FLIGHT RISK students who are at risk of disappearing off the face of the earth
  • Manage the TRANSITION TIMES in your studio and the major ‘drop off’ trends (like going from preschool to big school)
  • Create a PLAN TO RE-ENROL students, so that amongst the chaos of the end of year, you’re securing your enrolments (and income) for next year.

“The Retention Solution gave me a clear picture on how to retain more of my families and grow my studio. Our entire staff implemented some key retention steps during the last few weeks of our spring semester, and WOW! we retained more families into our summer session than we expected.

Our summer enrollment has already surpassed the previous year and we expect it to keep climbing. Chantelle really knows performing arts studios – this is a key difference between Studio Expansion’s Retention Solution and other expert marketing blogs, courses and webinars that I have taken. Chantelle’s ideas work!”

Cathy Huser, Kindermusik of Cleveland, Ohio

The Retention Solution is the COMPLETE PLAN for you and your teachers to improve your retention AND create a mile-long waiting list for your classes!

The thing is, unless your teachers are 110% on board with proactively growing the studio, it’s going to be a long, slow, uphill climb for you.

The challenge for you as a studio owner is how can you keep track of all of your students, monitoring for the warning signs when you’re not in the classroom?

When your teachers are on the front line, how can you watch out for flight risk students?

How can you ensure that your business keeps going when the retention solution is really in the hands of your teachers?

I know how hard teacher training can be (in my studio, I had 35 teachers to manage!)  But the Retention Solution makes it easy – with videos and worksheets to complete as a team, all you have to do is fill in the plan for your studio!

What if you could empower your teachers to boost your student retention?

Learn how to easily:

  • EDUCATE your teachers about the easy steps to take to retain students (and that it’s not just your responsibility as studio director)
  • ENCOURAGE your teachers to have conversations that superglue your students to your studio and wow the parents.
  • ENLIST your teachers in the growth and vision of the studio, to inspire their passion and loyalty for your studio (teacher retention is equally as important as student retention!)

INTRODUCING THE ANSWER TO LOSING STUDENTS & SMALL CLASS SIZES!

The Retention Solution is the ultimate teacher training program to motivate your teachers to grow your studio and to give you a concrete plan to retain more students.

The Retention Solution is the ultimate teacher training program to motivate your teachers to grow your studio and to give you a concrete plan to retain more students.

Your teachers are at the core of your retention strategy, so our videos talk DIRECTLY to your teachers.

STEP 1 – REFLECT

We all know that retention is important, but how often do we actually take the time to work out WHY students are leaving and make a plan to fix it?

Stop your students leaving by creating an irresistible program that promotes retention (without them even realising!)

IN STEP 1 WE WILL:

  • Review the trends in your retention to work out where are the holes in your studio – so we can start plugging them!
  • Add more WOW FACTOR into your student experience – BEFORE the enrol, DURING their time at your studio and even AFTER they leave!
  • Discover the FLIGHT RISK students in your studio and roll out an easy way for your teachers to keep tabs on which students are flying dangerously close to leaving….

INCLUDES: VIDEO + AUDIO MP3 + TRANSCRIPT

STEP 2 – RECONNECT

You know when you sense a student at the back of the class tuning out? When students start to feel a little stale, they disconnect from the studio. The moment you lose connection with a student is the moment their eyes start wandering….  But, there’s still time to strengthen the bonds with these powerful strategies.

Create more of a ‘studio family’ at your studio that builds loyalty amongst your students.

IN STEP 2 WE WILL:

  • Take your students from demotivated and disconnected to a community of RAVING FANS who skip through your studio doors and boast about your studio to their friends.
  • As well as external marketing, I’ll share the tricks to INVISIBLE MARKETING – promoting your upcoming programs and getting students excited about what’s coming up – without them knowing you’re marketing.
  • Create a proactive plan to manage those tricky TRANSITION TIMES in your studio – when you know there’s a big drop off coming, we’ll map out how to EDUCATE & ENTICE your students into staying.

Shine the spotlight on what you can help your students achieve and reclaim their passion for your studio.

IN STEP 3 WE WILL:

  • Structure your programs and curriculum to secure retention and design the ULTIMATE STUDENT EXPERIENCE – that WOWs!
  • STUDENT SPOTLIGHT – the strategy you only have to use once per year, but will make the world of difference to your retention.
  • CHOREOGRAPH THE EVOLUTION of your students experience at your studio in a way that keeps your students coming back for more and always looking forward to the next level of their learning!

INCLUDES: VIDEO + AUDIO MP3 + TRANSCRIPT

STEP 4 – REIGNITE

In Step 4, we’ll banish boredom and reignite the energy and passion in your studio to re-inspire your teachers and students and strengthen the bonds in your studio.

Same-old-same-old is the enemy of retention.  Bring back the passion and energy to your studio and watch the ripples flow through your community.

IN STEP 4 WE WILL:

  • Discover how to STRATEGICALLY DRIP-FEED retention stragegies at precise times of the year to hook students into coming back *this really is game-changing*
  • Learn your studio’s new ‘RETENTION MANTRA’ – a phrase that reminds your teachers what retention really is all about.
  • Roll out 3 EASY-TO-FOLLOW systems with your teachers to use that give them specific action steps to retain students.
  • Set retention GUIDELINES FOR YOUR TEACHERS to follow to create a studio culture that consistently retains students – without you having to do the legwork.

INCLUDES: VIDEO + AUDIO MP3 + TRANSCRIPT

“This motivating and practical program encourages our team to collaborate, clarify our mission, and focus our efforts to improve our studio across the board. As a studio director, I appreciate how the training speaks to my position but also includes a robust section just for teachers. It equips them to better understand the retention process from the teacher’s perspective and then take ownership of it. This program has us all working together in a way that’s making a positive and measureable difference. We will be using it for years to come!”
