Online business ideas for new yoga teachers.

September 24, 2019

I remember that overwhelming feeling after finishing my yoga teacher training and thinking…ok what now? When I started teaching classes I was teaching at multiple studios and it was hard to keep people in the loop on where to find me. So I thought I better create a website and have a platform where people can find my schedule and connect with me.  In doing so, I was able to reach more people and in turn get more jobs! So I put together a few tips that will help you grow your business as a yoga teacher.

Create a logo

Having a logo is not essential but it can help in creating a brand for yourself. I hired a graphic designer to work with me on my logo. I knew the exact feel I wanted to create with it and I am so happy with it! It helped me create more of a vision for my brand. If you don’t want to go the graphic designer route there are platforms like canva that can help you create one on your own. http://canva.com

Website

I originally started with Wix and I found it really challenging to use because I know nothing about coding. So I recently changed over to a service called Showit and I am so glad I did. I bought templates from a website shop called Tonic. It was an upfront investment but it was worth it to have something so beautiful and easy to edit. I can easily share my upcoming workshops and trainings, class schedules, retreats and blog posts.

Invoicing

Even if you are only doing 1 class a week it is important to keep track of your classes, invoices, and payments. I have been using a platform called Freshbooks and it is an incredible tool for sending out professional-looking invoices. It also makes tax season a whole lot easier because everything is in one place and is easy to access. As a self contractor it is important to stay on top of your finances so you don’t get into trouble later especially if you start teaching full time. Try Freshbooks and get 1 free month here!:

Email list

Not starting my email list from the beginning of my yoga teaching career is one of my biggest regrets but, there is no time like now to get started! I originally started with MailChimp because it is a free email marketing service up until a certain amount of subscribers. I was honestly not a big fan. Again, I am not a coder so it would take me FOREVER to create an email that looked semi-decent to send out to my community. When I had a baby and realized I don’t have time to waste on my emails I looked for other platforms. That is when I found and fell in love with Flodesk. It is a paid service but to me, it is worth every penny. I save so much time because they have pre-made templates that I just plug my info into, set the date and time to send out the email and voila! If you are interested in checking out this awesome service click here https://flodesk.com/ and use the code: bbryden to get 50% off your monthly subscription!

Start a facebook group

I love to use my facebook group as an opportunity to check-in and connect with my community. I share my most recent blog posts or upcoming events but I can also find out more about my students and what they are struggling with most. It helps me set up my content for either online or in the studio so I know I am helping my people out as best I can!

As a new teacher, it can be hard to get your name out there and that is why having an online platform can be a nice way to grow your business. It gives your students a place where they can learn more about you and your offerings. So get started now because you are amazing and I want everyone to know who you are 🙂
