We are a small and new studio. We've been around 6 months now. Every season things change and it seems a new marketing/promotions approach needs to be taken. We've reached a point where we're not quite sure how best to do all this. Any suggestions and help would be more than welcome.

I guess perhaps you may need to identify your potential customers and target groups' needs first so that you may have an idea what kind of services and range of pricing they would be interested to consider for your services. Keep changing of marketing or promotion approach without knowing what your potential customers or target groups’ needs could be a waste of resources. You may learn more from different media such as TV programs, magazine pertaining to health, fitness and wellness issues, talk to your friends, relatives, and people in your neighbourhood or even conduct a simple survey to find out more.

As well, perception is everything. One of the key areas of your business as I would imagine is repeat customers on top of adding new ones. How are you branding your business to your customers? Would they recommend you to their friends? Do you find customers through your website or word of mouth or some other form? In my opinion how a customer perceives your business is crucial to whether or not they recommend it to someone else. Word of mouth is probably one of the best forms of marketing out there.

Is it new clients you're looking for or more cashflow? i.e. smoothie bar, extra classes offered...etc... The little extras can add up to generate more income

You can try to leverage potential customers in your area by advertising in a community newspaper. A simple advertisement can make a great impact.
