What is Main Street Sites?

MainStreetSites is a web-based registration and class management solution that offers online payments and website hosting for businesses offering group classes or private lessons. MainStreetSites serves markets such as dance and yoga studios, music schools, drama and arts programs, language and culinary schools, and martial arts dojos.

Key benefits of using Main Street Sites

Users can display their facility's latest class schedules, teacher bios, maps and directions, as well as take class registrations directly via their website with MainStreetSites.

Users can track registrations and enrollments by semester and copy entire class schedules over in minutes, facilitating multiple semester management.

The built-in demo scheduler (with Facebook integration) makes it easy for new students to sign up for a trial class, while deposit and installment plans can help increase registrations.

Facilities can share special “members-only” information via the customer portal where customers can also update their account information and make payments.

With MainStreetSites, users can highlight featured products as part of registration checkout, such as class materials and gift certificates to costume rentals and recital fees.

Pros
The best decision I ever made was to return to this company filled with people who only want to make my life easier and my business run better, grow and be more profitable.

WD

Wendy D.

Very easy to integrate into our business website, easy for customers to use, easy to update and roll forward classes. The customer service team is AWESOME and very responsive.

MB

Matt B.

It's very affordable, especially with being a new studio. I've found it very helpful to help me get organize with my students, classes and monthly tuition.

Cons
I then spent 3 miserable years with two different companies that lied about their capabilities and I spent countless hours working with a site whose basic functions were terrible.

WD

Wendy D.

The cons to using this software are that updating the class schedule, class descriptions, and calendar can be difficult at times.

DC

DeShonte C.

Show attendance and makeups for individual students under their account. Provide a drop down menu to choose from multiple enrollment confirmation templates.

Best Decision I Made for My Business!

Reviewed 5 years ago

I have owned and operated a music studio for 12 years now. My studio has grown over the years and by needs have also grown. I switched to MainStreetSites about a year ago, and it has been the best decision for my business. Their customer service is exceptional, the features are always being updated and the team is very responsive to meeting the needs of their clients. The learning curve for adapting to the new system was intense, but they were there every step of the way and are always available to new questions my email or phone. Exceptional and I highly recommend!

Pros

Definitely the batch payment process, the tax receipts being emailed to each account individually by year, the email messaging system... lots!

Cons

I struggle a bit with the vast abilities of the system, but any time I need help the customer service is exceptional.

Overall, it is a good program for businesses who want to manage their own website and database.

I like that I can 1) design my webpage, 2) develop class schedules, 3) offer online registration/payment, 4) receive inquiries through the website, 3) feature an online store, 4) create customizable fields to obtain data from customers that are unique to my business. The Customer Service representatives are courteous, helpful, and listen to suggestions. These are my suggestions: 1) Provide ways for...

wasn't good fit for us

Reviewed 6 years ago

Trying to find a software which fits our needs, we evaluated few systems. This system didn't work for us. You need to create different classes for each time, each session. Class which runs on Tuesday and Thursday (but once-a-week enrollment) will require to create two different classes. In out case it means hundreds of classes instead of 20 classes with many scheduled. Drop-in classes don't really supported (only as events). We allow drop-ins on most of our classes. While software has many great features, this was a deal killer for us.

Pros

Very easy to integrate into our business website, easy for customers to use, easy to update and roll forward classes. The customer service team is AWESOME and very responsive. They even help set up your MainStreet Sites account to match your website!

Cons

I would love to see a way to track student skills built into the software somehow, but overall this is the best software that we've used for managing our swim school and we tried numerous options prior purchasing MainStreet Sites.

I have been using MainStreetSites Music Together Templates for the past 3 years and love them!

Reviewed 6 years ago

MainStreetSites was my first website provider and the service was always exceptional. I left the site for another company only because I thought that the templates at the time were prettier and the other company said that they could provide amazing upgraded functionality that MainStreetSites honestly said would take them more time to create. I wish I had stayed with MainStreetSites. I then spent...
