You started your yoga studio for one reason: you love teaching yoga. So, why not turn your love into a career? However, we realize how easily the administrative components of owning a yoga business may become overwhelming: class schedules, registration, attendance, credit card processing, sales, marketing, accounting, and so much more.
Fortunately, yoga studio management software may serve as a one-stop shop for all your business management needs.
There is numerous yoga studio management software on the market today, each with its capabilities. With that in mind, we’ve put together five essential tips to help you select yoga software that meets all of your studio’s needs – without the need for compromises or workarounds.
Automation, Automation, and Automation Some More!
The more jobs you automate, the more time you’ll have to devote to what you love: yoga teaching. List the time-consuming chores you’d like to reduce before booking a demo of the yoga studio management software you’re considering.
Get a demo of the yoga studio management software (like Classfit) you intend to purchase to evaluate if it will automate the administrative activities presently taking up your time. Furthermore, now that you’ve compiled a list of the essential automation features for your yoga studio; you’ll be less likely to be diverted by irrelevant characteristics.
Observing a particular piece of software in action may also expose the need for different manual ‘workarounds’ on your part to accomplish the intended result, indicating that the software is not an excellent fit for you.
Don’t pay for a yoga software solution that accomplishes satisfy your immediate needs; your studio management tools should help you, not hinder you.
Conduct Background Investigation
When purchasing yoga software for the first time or switching to a different software vendor, many questions may arise. Although it may appear a no-brainer, we strongly recommend reading user reviews to discover answers to these questions before making a purchase decision. We also urge that you research the degree of assistance available.
The future of the health and wellness industry is mobile, and any yoga software provider who does not include mobile in their primary strategy is not worth your time.
According to studies, adults spend approximately 2.8 hours daily on mobile devices. This statistic is brimming with opportunities for yoga studio owners who want to take client communication to the next level! As a result, your software provider should enable you to embrace and benefit from this trend in business management. When it comes to solving your studio’s booking and payment problems, mobile is incredibly effective.
Long-term contracts should be avoided.
We feel that long-term, inflexible contracts are unnecessary in today’s cloud-based software industry. Most software systems have quick and inexpensive setup times for the software industry. As a result, we believe that all software companies should offer their clients short-term contracts.
If a corporation truly believes in its product, it should not be required to lock you into a long-term agreement to support your business. The product quality and customer service should assure your long-term loyalty to the company, not a warranty that forces you to stay.
Keep an eye on the cost of adding users.
Some yoga software firms charge by the number of users on the software system. When your yoga studio is small or just starting, this may not present any problems. However, when your yoga studio expands and evolves, you may want to add additional clients and build separate profiles for your yoga teachers.
