I am SO excited about this one!
I started The Studio Challenge Facebook group about 18 months ago and I love that we have been able to help each other to learn and grow. We're a diverse group of music teachers from all over the world.
The Facebook group has helped a ton of studio owners to start thinking about their music lessons as a business and in turn see solid growth. But one of the downsides of the group is that great advice is shared and then lost in the abyss of Facebook groups. I'm really excited about the ability to offer an organized and structured way to share information to help you grow your studio and take it to the next level.
I started offering private and group consulting as well as website and social media analysis last year. After working with about a dozen studio owners I saw some pretty remarkable transformations. But some people aren't quite ready to jump into consulting sessions.
This is why I LOVE Patreon.
For the cost of a cup of coffee, I can now start helping studio owners that are ready to dive in a little deeper and want some more structure.
If you are unfamiliar with how Patreon works, you pledge a monthly amount and receive rewards in return. It's similar to kickstarter, but ongoing. It is a way for creatives to connect with their community.
I am offering THREE TIERS to choose from.
The First Tier is only $5 a month. You get a monthly guide on a particular subject each month that is designed to help you grow a certain aspect of your studio. I also include a monthly checklist to help you to start working on what we're learning each month. This isn't for casual observers, but for people that are ready to work and take it up a notch!
You also get to vote on upcoming subjects for me to cover. In addition I include a video each month where I break down something business and studio related and give some tips and insight for those that are more visual/audio learners.
The Second Tier is $20 a month and includes personalized content. At this level, I will do a written analysis of your website or social media each month. Sometimes you need an objective observer to check out your website and let you know how to design and improve it to get more students to your site and get them signed up. I have been offering this service to teachers for over a year and have seen some great results. My recommendations are practical and simple. I don't require you to know a lot of tech stuff and you can get started with some easy changes or jump into bigger things. Either way, you will start to see results as more people see your page and inquire about lessons.
This tier also includes a monthly live chat where I will discuss a subject and answer questions from members. If you can't make the live chat, you can send in your questions for me to answer and I will post the video later so that you can check it out at your convenience. You also get access to everything from the First tier.
The Third Tier is the $50 tier. This one includes a one on one video consulting session with me each month where we can discuss, plan, and strategize anything about your studio. This is great for those that are really ready to see their studio grow and need help working on specific problems. The teachers that I have consulted with have seen substantial growth through streamlining their processes, tweaking their policies, and upgrading their systems. I offer practical advice to help your studio grow and I'm there to help as you implement changes. You also get access to everything from the First and Second tier.
As a bonus for signing up this month I am including some additional content for Patrons geared towards helping you find your niche and determining your ideal student and how to find them.
There is also a FREE guide available to anyone to help you improve part of your website so that you can get more inquiries and more students into your studio. You don't have to be a Patron to see this guide. I just wanted to include something as a thank you for Facebook group members and to give you a taste of what's inside once you become a Patron.
Nothing about The Studio Challenge Facebook group will change. It's not suddenly going to become a paid group and I won't harass you to sign up for anything.
This Patreon is here if you're ready to get serious and take it up to the next level.
If not, The Studio Challenge Facebook group will continue being as awesome as ever.
