Ever wanted to know how to make a splash on the web – or at least a little bigger wave than what you have going now? Below are a few tips for teachers who want to build more traffic for their studio website.
Website Traffic Basics
Here are a few tips on how to make your music teacher website more effective in attracting new students.
1) Make It Pretty – People like pretty. If your site is pretty they’ll stay longer, and be more engaged by what you have to say. The temptation among many teachers is to put up a free site, and hope for the best. Unfortunately, free sites don’t usually look great, and your visitors will be gone as fast as they came. If you’re a music teacher that’s in it for the long haul, it’s best to launch a custom designed website.
2) Make It Bigger – Google favors large and well established websites. You don’t have to go crazy, but a 10 page website will perform far better than a 3 page website. Consider adding a blog. Even if people are visiting your site from some far off land, it’s still traffic. When Google sees that you’re site is getting visited more often, they’ll put your site higher in the search results. That will mean even more traffic for you – and potential students.
3) Go Pinterest/Facebook – Social networks are a great way to spread the news about your site, and get traffic moving in your direction. Make yourself a business Facebook page and post away. Make a page on your website for your favorite music books and products. Pin these products to a board on Pinterest. Repin those product pins with TrafficWonker.com – it’s FREE!
