Martial Arts Business Awesome Mobile App Marketing Tricks to boost referrals…
By Mike D.
Everyone has an opinion about which features are best for your martial arts school mobile app.
And when it comes to the mobile apps we’ve been creating for schools the favorite features do vary.
Some like the push notifications so they can directly message their students.
Other martial arts business owner like the video integration so students can practice at home.
The fan wall where students can interact is nice too.
But I love two features because they go so well together…
1… Tell a Friend: This is “viral” sharing at its best. With one tap your students can share your martial arts business with their friends. They can share via text, email or social media.
2… Next… The Loyalty Function… This keeps track of anything you want. Think about it… Attendance Contests: It’s fun and easy to track these. Bring a Friend to Class: This can be tracked in the app… and each time a student brings a friend one gets marked off.
How about… Combining These Two?
I’m going to run the attendance and the referral contest, but I’m also going to add a twist…
We’re going to keep track and do a “share our app contest.”
We’ll keep track of the shares.
This is simple too.
Now… for students to share your school with their friends… it’s just a click on their phone.
Go to the link below… then type “iphone” into the checkout so we can equip your app with these cool functions and build your iPhone/iPad app…

Getting More New Students
For Your Martial Arts Business
Just having more introductory lessons will result in more new students for your martial arts business.
First intro lesson show ratios will vary.
Doesn’t matter whether you are doing group intro lessons or private intro lessons confirming is a must.
If you don’t confirm you are wasting your marketing efforts.
A few things… A call the night before (depending on when you set the intro) helps.
Or… the morning of the intro.
I have always gone back and forth and – I could not tell you which one works better.
If an intro was scheduled 4 days prior or longer – the night before is the way to go.
Then… email. If you use Google calendar you can simply set up an automatic email reminder to go out.
And you can also have some auto-responders go out as soon as someone books an intro.
And… then there’s text messaging.
I’m finding that texting is not for teens anymore.
Prospects and Parents are fine to receive a text message from you. There are two tools to make this efficient.
One gives your landline the ability to send and receive text messages.
The other lets you send text messages from your smartphone number but do it from your desktop.
I find it is easier to type on my laptop to send messages.
The apps are “Text Us” and “PPL Connect.” You should check them out
Lastly…What about telling prospects to download your own mobile app before they come to the school?
That would have a wow factor huh?
What about allowing your students to share your school with the tap of a button

Martial Arts School Mobile Apps
Recently I heard some news about “what parents want.”
Of course… they (we) want all sorts of things for our kids.
But top of the list as far as “a toys/gadgets” we want for the kids…
In particular … Ipads.
Ipads are the dominant tablet, right?
So that makes sense.
Too much screen time is no good!
I agree with you.
That’s why my wife and I keep our girls’ screen time to a minimum.
And the fact is parents want tablets… not really… to allow their kids to veg out.
They know – there’s a ton of education that can happen when you use these things right.
In other words…
The tablet can do much good!
Which is why this mobile app thing I’ve been gently nudging you about over the last month or so is a big deal.
Getting martial arts students and members to log-in to “member areas” on yee old martial arts school website is dead as nails.
It’s those tablets and smartphones.
That’s where you can engage your martial arts students and grow your business.
Help boost retention with…
Member only content to support training and boost confidence.
Push Notifications to keep students informed and up to speed with your school.
Further your “school brand” by doing this before any other “activity” out there.
Plus, wouldn’t an app really boost your school’s value?
Martial Arts School Mobile Apps can really help you.

Mobile Marketing Mobile Websites and Mobile Apps
for Your Martial Arts Business
There are two paths when it comes to this.
In no order…
The Mobile Web.
That’s when you or a prospect browses the web on a smartphone.
In the case of “Search” someone looks up information on martial arts in your local area.
This is done when the prospect is on the go, acting on impulse or just doesn’t feel like sitting down at their “desktop” to do their research.
Path 1 is where your “Martial Arts Marketing Mobile Website” or “Responsive Design Website” comes in.
The objective is to make sure your prospect gets a decent “Mobile Experience.”
- This includes a clear and clickable phone number.
- A clear call to action.
- Plus easy browsing and visuals.
Path 2 is different.
It’s where 90% of the time is spent on mobile devices and smartphones.
And that’s inside Mobile Apps.
And your school’s mobile app is meant to tie in to this 90%.
A Mobile App for Your Martial Arts Business is for you to enable your students to consume and share your “content.”
Your practice videos, news updates and everything else that helps your student gain competence and confidence.
Competence and Confidence will boost retention.
