    What ideas are y'all using to get the word out about your studio as school begins? I've got the following balls in the air:

    New magnets on all my cars and company vans.

    Hosting a 'Fall Fitness Fandango' health fair in a couple of weeks. Essentially an open house, partnered with a local dance studio and some others.

    Emailing, calling and snailmailing all my past students who left on good terms.

    Sending out a flyer with delivered and takeout pizzas at the pizza joint down the road.

    Contacting local PTOs to set up a safety day.

    Getting my students who own businesses to put flyers and brochures in their offices.

    Posting an ad on Craigslist.

    Putting one of those A-frame signs up along the road in front of the school


    How about everybody else? I figure we can compare notes, maybe get a few good ideas off each other.

    May i ask how got this up and running?

    I like the Craigslist idea.

    I think all we are really doing is putting some half page ads in papers and doing some demo stuff.
