In last weekâ€™s issue we talked a little about financing your tutor business and we had some questions about what exactly do you do with the business cards. So I figured today I would give you four quick tips to promote your tutor business on a budget.
- Become friends with teachers that teach your subject. This is the easiest way to get students. They know students that are taking your subject; they also know the students that need help. There are a number of ways to do this, but the easiest way is to be friendly. Help and volunteer at the schools you are targeting. We talked quite a bit about doing this in one of our recent series.
- Learn where the kids and parents hang out in your town. I live in a very small town. One of the big things in our town is sporting events. Go to the events, offer free classes at the library. Iâ€™m a firm believer that many times you have to give in order to get. Remember youâ€™re in this for the long haul. Talk to people.
- As you begin to figure out what works (and what doesnâ€™t) â€“ focus your attention on what is working, but donâ€™t be afraid to try different things in order to grow your business. Make sure you track all of your advertising. If you donâ€™t track it then you wonâ€™t know what worked.
- Even if you have a full tutor schedule, do not stop your advertising.
