This is a great way to build new business! It is also a wonderful way to offer your services for a discount to specific groups or students that might not otherwise be able to afford it without lowering your public price.
This is another: You dream it, we’ll create it!
You can can create a discount by percentage or a dollar amount. It can be a one time use or used in perpetuity for anyone or a specific person. I can also be limited for only certain types of appointments (i.e. only 1-on-1 coaching, or only group dance classes).
Send your ideas for your personal discount coupon codes to EmpoweringtheArtist@gmail.com You can say “I’d like to offer 10% off for new students for their first booking” or “I want to offer $15 off each booking for my long time student Jessie Donaldson firstname.lastname@example.org”.

Things you should email us EmpoweringtheArtist@gmail.com:
- One horizontal picture that will serve as your main banner (less than 10MB). This should be one of your best photos that really showcases you.
- 6-9 more pictures (less than 10MB each) you’d like to be in your photo gallery. If you are sending via dropbox, google drive or anything similar, be sure you enable the option for us to download them.
- A list of your top credits to be listed right under your banner. If you’d like to include most of your bio, we can do that too.
- A short quote that gives your clients an idea of your teaching style and how excited you are to work with them.
We will need your login information for your webpage. It could be a WordPress login or your hosting site login.
This is a new option we are offering, and we are hoping it doesn’t prove too difficult. So, we’ll have patience with each other going through it
It is frustrating that Instagram only lets you include one link in your bio. However, there are a number of free solutions that have popped up and work really well. Essentially, these companies give you one link that will then lead your followers to all your links in one click.
Either one will allow you to list any teaching sites you are on, including your own (you should definitely put yours first). It can also include any foundations or organizations that you support in the same link.
