The majority of the people who are coming to your retreat are doing so because they 𝗸𝗻𝗼𝘄 𝘆𝗼𝘂 and 𝘁𝗿𝘂𝘀𝘁 𝘆𝗼𝘂. Yes, you will probably get a couple random people through targeted advertising (which is part of what I offer) but it won’t be enough to sell our your retreat and probably not enough to even hit your minimum numbers.
Having a strong student base is 𝗸𝗲𝘆 and you can expect some of them to bring a friend or a family member, which moves things along nicely.
One of the things I also offer is marketing material sent directly to you and having these 𝗽𝗼𝘀𝘁𝗰𝗮𝗿𝗱𝘀 handy to offer your students after class with a QR code is going to be incredibly helpful to get the word out. I leave my postcards in the bathrooms and around the studio so everyone can see.
Another thing that has been key to getting the word out is starting a 𝗻𝗲𝘄𝘀𝗹𝗲𝘁𝘁𝗲𝗿 for my students. Getting the sign up page right at people’s fingertips makes things so convenient!
Social media is another key way to get the news of your retreat out. It often takes 4 or 5 times of someone seeing something or hearing about it before they consider buying so don’t be afraid to 𝗽𝗼𝘀𝘁 𝗼𝗳𝘁𝗲𝗻! IG Lives, Facebook events and ads are other ways to get people’s attention besides simply posting about the retreat. Got a YouTube page? Do a video about your retreat for people to see!
Having a 𝗰𝗮𝘁𝗰𝗵𝘆 𝗱𝗲𝘀𝗰𝗿𝗶𝗽𝘁𝗶𝗼𝗻 about your retreat will be necessary to grab the attention of potential participants. You’ll want this imaginative blurb to take their mind straight to the beautiful retreat location and describe how they’ll feel once they’re there. Not a big writer? Not a problem, I can help.
Another way to grab people’s attention could be hosting a class or a workshop that is centered around the same 𝘁𝗵𝗲𝗺𝗲 as your retreat. Leave them wanting more and maybe even give them a special discount if they sign up within a day of the class.
