How To Sell Out Your Retreat

๐—™๐—ถ๐—ฟ๐˜€๐˜ ๐˜๐—ต๐—ถ๐—ป๐—ด๐˜€ ๐—ณ๐—ถ๐—ฟ๐˜€๐˜: โฃ

The majority of the people who are coming to your retreat are doing so because they ๐—ธ๐—ป๐—ผ๐˜„ ๐˜†๐—ผ๐˜‚ and ๐˜๐—ฟ๐˜‚๐˜€๐˜ ๐˜†๐—ผ๐˜‚. Yes, you will probably get a couple random people through targeted advertising (which is part of what I offer) but it wonโ€™t be enough to sell our your retreat and probably not enough to even hit your minimum numbers. โฃ
โฃ
Having a strong student base is ๐—ธ๐—ฒ๐˜† and you can expect some of them to bring a friend or a family member, which moves things along nicely.โฃ
โฃ
One of the things I also offer is marketing material sent directly to you and having these ๐—ฝ๐—ผ๐˜€๐˜๐—ฐ๐—ฎ๐—ฟ๐—ฑ๐˜€ 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.โฃ
โฃ
Another thing that has been key to getting the word out is starting a ๐—ป๐—ฒ๐˜„๐˜€๐—น๐—ฒ๐˜๐˜๐—ฒ๐—ฟ for my students. Getting the sign up page right at peopleโ€™s fingertips makes things so convenient!โฃ
โฃ
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 donโ€™t be afraid to ๐—ฝ๐—ผ๐˜€๐˜ ๐—ผ๐—ณ๐˜๐—ฒ๐—ป! IG Lives, Facebook events and ads are other ways to get peopleโ€™s attention besides simply posting about the retreat. Got a YouTube page? Do a video about your retreat for people to see!โฃ
โฃ
Having a ๐—ฐ๐—ฎ๐˜๐—ฐ๐—ต๐˜† ๐—ฑ๐—ฒ๐˜€๐—ฐ๐—ฟ๐—ถ๐—ฝ๐˜๐—ถ๐—ผ๐—ป about your retreat will be necessary to grab the attention of potential participants. Youโ€™ll want this imaginative blurb to take their mind straight to the beautiful retreat location and describe how theyโ€™ll feel once theyโ€™re there. Not a big writer? Not a problem, I can help.โฃ
โฃ
Another way to grab peopleโ€™s attention could be hosting a class or a workshop that is centered around the same ๐˜๐—ต๐—ฒ๐—บ๐—ฒ 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.โฃ
