You’ve taken the first step and established your martial arts business, so what’s next?

You’ve already got a good understanding for the fundamentals of running a martial arts business to the point where you have your own full time location. We know from our own experiences that this is no small feat to achieve, but now you have a successful business, what’s the next step?

Most martial arts business owners will look to expand their business and keep it growing, and there are a number of ways this can be done. All of which we are happy to not only explain, but also assist you with pursuing. However, if you don’t plan to expand your business, there are still a large number of ways in which our system and solutions can help you to better manage your martial arts business.

As you get access to everything from day one, you still get the same benefits as a start-up business would, but may benefit from more advanced features such as:

When you are running a full time martial arts business, you will no doubt be busy and that’s where our myMA Mobile App comes in. Designed with the same great features as its desktop counterpart, you are able to monitor and manage your business on the move. You can even use it to track attendance during your lessons with or without an internet connection, as you can sync your app at a later time when you have a connection again.
Online booking is something that is built into our myMA Websites, but for those of you who may have their own site and don’t wish to upgrade, we have our Online Booking Widget. The widget still captures all the same data, allows people to browse your lessons and syncs with the myMA Business Management System.
It can be hard staying on top of all your communications, especially when you’re busy in class. That’s why we have automated communications in place to not only confirm bookings for prospects, but also to inform you about what’s happening. This system also triggers alerts to inform you when students are missing lessons or payments so you can keep an eye on everything more easily.
Besides your current students, prospects are one of the main driving forces for your martial arts business, so it’s important to keep track of them all. Whether this is from your website, Get Into Martial Arts or your offline marketing, you are able to enter these details into myMA and start to build your prospect database. There are even options for email and text notifications for your marketing campaigns to re-engage with prospects who may not have signed up the first time.
Wouldn’t it be great if people could have a search engine specifically for martial arts lessons? Thanks to www.getintomartialarts.com they do! And what’s even better is that your business can be listed on there. This is a service we offer exclusively for NEST clients that allows people in your local area to find your lessons and book onto them. This then gets recorded in myMA, allowing you to follow up and contacts and lesson bookings.
This is where we sit down with you and find out exactly where your business is at and where you would like it to be. We help you start a business plan to work towards these goals and also help you with marketing advice so you know what to do and where to start.
When you join, you are assigned a dedicated business coach to help you develop your business. Your business coach will check in with you every week to see how you are getting on, answer any questions and help guide you on the next stages of your business plan.
We introduce you to our business management system and all of the features you will benefit from at this stage. This is to help you focus on the important things within myMA such as adding students, setting up lessons and tracking Direct Debit payments. All of these are made to help you manage and run your business more smoothly and reduce your administration workload.
You will be given access to our myMA website templates, allowing you to quickly and easily setup a professional website for your business. These templates are fully responsive, meaning they work on all devices automatically without any additional actions required from you. myMA websites are also integrated within the myMA system, allowing you to take online bookings, show class timetables and have automated communications, all of which are tracked within the myMA system and added to your reports.
Once you have your plans in place and an amazing looking website up and running, it’s time to let everyone know about your business and what classes you have available. This is where our Marketing Toolkit and Dedicated Marketing Team can really help. There are a wide selection of campaign materials and templates for both print and digital that you can use and edit with your own content and images; with our marketing team always on hand and happy to help should you want extra guidance and support.
