think expansion, online internet marketing for martial arts dojos, and dojans

Noticing that you do not have a Facebook pixel on your website meanwhile your competitors do, is a definite red flag for your business. Here at Think Expansion we focus on only one client per zip code, and if you are reading this, that means you are definitely a candidate for complete domination, and on the road to scaling your dojo! 

Once you join the Think Expansion family you are going to constantly generating more revenue, working together with your account executives, and copy writers. At Think Expansion- we make brands matter.

So what are we going to do?

For the first 12 hours we will need to work very closely with you, in brainstorming and adjusting your packages, your offers, and promotions. Most martial arts school fail due to giving away free classes, free gis, free shin guards, free food even, and if you ask any of them if it made them profitable, they will change the subject.

We will establish an offer, and establish the areas you like to work around with, so we will be asking you a million questions to really pick at your brain. Each school is different, and each dojo needs very close attention from an account executive as to how we should place an offer, a funnel and an ad.

Project Plans

Per the first campaign, and to make it a profitable campaign the best thing we can do is keep everyone in your funnel that is interested. We are going to get a cold audience, a warm audience, and a hot audience. Of course, when doing this we choose to use Facebook messenger because everyone that clicks instantly becomes a prospect to an extent. Whereas in a traditional landing page, a percentage would be lost, and would have to be re-targeted in order to gain.

Therefore, depending on who your audience may be, or at what stage of your business you are in we would be tightening the offer, the cost, and the profitability per campaign each step of the way. 

The goal here is to expose everyone to your business, build tight rapport, and then close them on an offer, initially- before they purchase the biggest package available.

Warm market– Conversions can jump up to 15-30% in the warm market! These are people who are already are familiar with you, and the awesome karate lessons or jiu-jitsu lessons that you do!

Depending on the martial art, and the place your dojo is located, we would be slowly chipping away and discovering who your warm market is!
