Advertising for New Students

I just had to get that Merry Christmas post off of the top of the blog - onto a new year! :) I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas break and are on to great new semesters of piano study. We have a lot of great things coming up on The Teaching Studio. For now, I thought it would be a great time to re-visit the topic of Finding New Students.

I have made many-a-flyer in my years of teaching piano lessons. I decided it was time for a new, more professional-looking one. I wanted one that I could email out to people (I have had people give my name to people who are interested in lessons, and wanted something professional-looking that could be forwarded on to others). I used Microsoft Publisher to make this one and I love how it turned out! I have never used this program before, but I loved all of the professional-looking templates you can choose from and customize to your heart's content. What do you think?


Now, tell me - what kind of information do you like to put on your flyers? If you use flyers to advertise, how do you make them? Where/how do you like to distribute them?

Happy Monday!

I like it! You give lots of good information succinctly. I also like the template--it's too bad you couldn't find the same template with colors that coordinate with your studio policy sheet that you posted several months ago.

Cool flyer! I would hire you to teach my kids. :)

Thanks! And Danielle, you can actually customize the colors quite a bit, and I did them to match my little logo in the bottom corner. I change the color scheme on my policy quite often too, depending on my mood, haha.

This looks great, Jenny! Have you been able to get new students by advertising this way? I've found that no matter what I do to advertise, I find most of my students by referrals from current or past students.

Jenny Bay said...

Well, I just barely made this, so we shall see! I agree that referrals are definitely the best way to get new students! So far I have just used this to email out to people who have wanted to refer me to people, and also I sent it out to an email list of moms in our area.

This is such a fabulous idea, and the design is so clean, attractive, and professional. I've never thought about putting together something like this since I usually send people to my website, but I may just have to give it a try! Thanks for the inspiration!
