it’s Thursday, and I’m just thinking today about new ways to find new students. Sometimes, in this economy, as a teacher, that can be challenging. I don’t want to keep approaching the same people all the time. In order to introduce new people to the craft, you have to be creative and think out-of-the-box sometimes.
For example, this Sunday I’m going to meet an activities director at a nursing home. She told me that some of her residents have wanted to make cards for anniversaries, their grandchildren’s birthday, et cetera. So I’m going to meet her on Sunday afternoon and show her some samples of cards. And propose a card making class once a month.
I am also approaching an activities director at the country club. These are some things that I would never would have thought of in the past. I would love to hear about how other people market their services /classes in different ways. Care to share?
