Welcome to the Friday promote your tutor business blog.
If you’re like me, maybe you’re watching the NCAA tournament. This got me to thinking about some ways you may be able to incorporate the tournament into helping build your business. It works for colleges but it could work for you as well (even if you tutor grade school and high school). Many folks love sports and discounts, so what you want to do is to incorporate both of them.
You’ll probably want to make sure a team in your state is in your tournament, so it wouldn’t work very well in Kentucky this year (but maybe next year). There are a number of different ways you can do it, use your imagination and I’m sure you’ll be able to come up with something on your own.Â Here’s my idea.
1. Run the contest on your facebook page and blog.
2. For every win your team gets you’ll have a 10% discount. If the team loses then they’ll get have of the discount rate it was at. The next day after a game – give them a special number to call and make sure you are able to answer the telephone. So if your team wins two games, the discount would be 20%. They lose the next game so the discount would go down to 10%.
3. Make daily posts on your facebook / blog / twitter etc. Build up the excitement and anticipation. Make sure they realize they could lose the discount at any time (by half).
4. Set and keep firm time limits. Let them know when they need to order by.Â Give a limit of total number of discounts. Let them know when your team loses, what the discount is and when they need to order.
Hopefully this will help you land a few more sales during a time when most of the US is focused on basketball.
Enjoy your weekend, I’m going to go watch the game.
