I had a Trial Lesson at 1pm at my Smith’s School of English Horie school which I was looking forward to.
I always look forward to trial lessons. Why?
Successful trial lessons = money in pocket! And I’ve had my fair share of successes… http://www.smithschool.com/lifestyle/ship.html
It’s always rewarding when you get out there, pass out flyers, have a trial book in and say they just received a flyer from you at XYZ Station and they are interested in your school.
You do the trial lesson, the student signs up, and you’ve just increased your income.
But, there’s a different scenario which I like even better…
It’s when that student didn’t receive the flyer from me, but from a fellow franchisee at a different school but found my location to be more convenient for them!
Is this fair you ask? Absolutely! Does this happen often?
I can tell you one thing for sure; I’ve had it happen at least four times in the past 3 months!
I’m also sure I have given flyers to students who have gone on and signed up at a different school because it was more convenient for them. I know this for a fact.
As we continue to grow, this web will only become larger and denser.
I know we have the momentum going now and I will see more of this “cross-pollination” happening between our locations.
I’ve been with Smith’s School of English for about 3 years now, and I’ve noticed a dramatic increase in this kind of cross-pollination within the past year.
Personally, I have my own goals of increasing the number of schools I run, and I feel confident in opening another Smith’s School of English franchise in the future because I will not be a lone ranger out there somewhere hoping students will find my school.
I know that I will not be alone in getting the name out, but instead my school will be plugged into the Smith’s School of English system which will enable me to take advantage of the web.
Here’s the web…
