How Can You Increase Your Martial Arts School Income Quickly?
The quickest and surest way to increase martial arts income for your school is with an after school martial arts program with summer camp. You can easily add $100,000.00 a year in income from this one program.
How does it increase martial arts income?
Parents are willing to pay 3 to 5 times as much for after school programs as they are for regular martial arts classes. Depending on your area, parents pay from $59 to $99 a WEEK for after school martial arts, and as much as $200 a WEEK for summer camp. At these rates, you can easily see that only 25 students can increase martial arts income for your school by $100,000.00 a year.
What is it?
It’s a simple idea: instead of counting on parents to pick up their children at school and drive them to your martial arts school for afternoon classes, you pick up the children yourself from their academic school and bring them to your martial arts school.
You provide a useful service for some parents, and provide a necessary service for the parents who work. You see, the parents who work (most of them – especially single parents), have to have some way to make sure their kids are safe from the time school lets out until the time they get home from work. Some use day care centers, others use extended day programs at the elementary school, some depend on relatives to watch the children, but they all need someplace for their children to go.
Your martial arts school can become their number one choice because in addition to knowing their kids are safe, they also know their kids are getting a valuable martial arts education, getting great exercise, developing confidence, and learning discipline and respect. There is no comparison between the benefits of after school martial arts and any other after school program, and it’s the fastest and easiest way to increase martial arts income for your school.
Then, during summer vacation, the parents need somewhere for their children to go the entire day while they are at work. They drop off their kids at your summer camp on the way to work, and pick them up on the way home. They know their children are not only having fun, but learning valuable lessons over the summer.
Is it babysitting? It can be, if you don’t have a clear plan. On the other hand, if you have a curriculum of hour-by-hour, day-by-day activities, then it becomes martial arts education both inside and outside the classroom. AMSkids member schools find their after school students have better technique and better etiquette than their traditional martial arts students because they spend more time in class and more time at the martial arts school learning the martial arts way of life.
How do you do it?
There are two ways: the “learn by mistakes” method, and the “learn from others’ mistakes” method. We know lots of successful martial arts schools that tried to add an after school program using their generic knowledge of martial arts business . . . and they failed miserably.
We also know schools that followed the established program to be up and running quickly and profitably. The funny thing is that some of these schools were the same: They failed when trying it on their own, and are now extremely successful after becoming part of the AMSkids program, able to increase martial arts income for their schools by over $100,000.00.
The AMSkids program comes with a start-up kit to tell you what to do and how to do it. You also get an experienced consultant to guide you through the steps. You get monthly support of marketing, management, instructional materials, and hour-by-hour activities for the children. It is a “plug and play” program that, if you can follow directions, you can run successfully.
To find out how you can get access to this goose that lays the golden eggs, the AMSkids program, to increase martial arts income at your school, simply call 1-800-275-1600 for a cheerful explanation. It’s definitely worth the call. After all, every day you put off making the call is another day you don’t earn that extra income.
