In a world where everything seems to be reviewed on Yelp, Amazon, or Google, image is everything. Your dance studio is no different. Back in the day, a dance studio might take out ads in the local paper or simply rely on word of mouth to find new customers. Signing up for classes meant speaking with a customer in person and spending time on the phone while carefully recording their details.
Nowadays, the dance studio game is far more competitive: people expect convenience when signing up for classes (online), there are plenty (an almost overwhelming number) of places to market your studio, and you'll need to provide a few different ways to be contacted (hope you like Twitter!).
First and foremost, dance studio software helps to centralize your business. Your marketing, class sign-up and organization, and point of sale will be housed under the same roof. Many solutions also provide detailed reports of your business covering student retention rates, financials, and an overview of your marketing efforts.
However, if you don't have experience with dance studio software (or business software in general), don't worry: we've got you covered. Below is a checklist that provides a starting place for you in the dance studio software purchasing process.
