Tom Hess: Why Guitar Teachers Find It Difficult To Get Guitar Students

Why Guitar Teachers Find It Difficult To Get Guitar Students

 by Tom Hess

Do you have a hard time finding more guitar students? Do your guitar teaching ads and website not seem to really work like you want them to? Are you tired of constantly pouring massive efforts into promotion and not getting enough students from it? Does it seem next to impossible to keep your teaching schedule full?
If you are like most guitar teachers, you probably really struggle to market your guitar teaching effectively. There are many reasons why this happens, but there are two main problems that apply to almost all guitar teachers who struggle with attracting a lot of new students.
First, most guitar teachers lack the necessary marketing knowledge to write really good ads, create websites that work or use innovative methods to attract a lot of new guitar students.
Second, they have a deep misunderstanding about how the process of attracting new guitar students works. What makes things even worse is that this misconception causes even those very few teachers who DO know how to create a decent website or write a good ad to fail. They too don’t get as many students as they could be getting and therefore struggle.
I’m going to show you in this article why this misunderstanding has such damaging consequences and how you can easily solve the problem, start to attract a LOT of new students and finally fill up your teaching schedule.
So, what is the problem?
Most Guitar Teaching Promotional Tools Are Built And Used In Isolation 
What does this mean? Ads, websites or other promotional tools alone aren’t strong enough to bring you a LOT of new students on a consistent basis, because they are only single pieces of a big puzzle. The huge mistake most guitar teachers make is to think that the ad or website will ‘do everything’ for them. In order to make your promotional efforts work effectively, you need to have (and  ‘complete’ the missing pieces of) a whole strategy of attracting new students. 
Let's look at two good guitar teachers who use same ad, in the same location. For one guitar teacher the ad works very well and he gets 12 new students in 2 weeks. For the second guitar teacher the ad results in only 1 new student. How is it possible that one good guitar teacher gets 12 times as many students as the other? With the exact same ad!?…
The answer is simple: teacher 1 is using a ‘strategy’ whilte teacher 2 is using an isolated 'tactic'.
The second teacher (the one who only got 1 new student from his ad) used the same ‘good’ ad that the first teacher used… BUT he never understood how all the pieces of the marketing puzzle should fit together to not only attract a lot of new students, but finally to build a successful guitar teaching business. So without a real strategy, his ‘good ad’ produced ‘poor results’.
What is very likely to happen after the ad produced disappointing results for teacher 2 is that he falsely believes that the ad he used was not a ‘good ad’ (since it brought him poor results). This is a very common mistake guitar teachers make. They then either change the ad (often making it worse), they start to look for different places to display the ad, or they stop using the ad and give up. Too often people throw away the ‘good pieces’ of a strategy without realizing that something else was really to blame and needed to change in order to get the results they were hoping for.
…Or, and this is another very common mistake, they start to copy another teacher’s ad or website (because they still think their original ad or website was the problem). They are looking at what other teachers do. So teacher A is struggling and he may look at teacher B's website and think, ‘Oh I'll copy what this teacher is doing and I'll have good results too.’ But that rarely works well, because the part that they are copying may not be the piece that teacher A needs to change.
This whole idea is exactly the same as what separates great teachers from mediocre teachers. A mediocre teacher sometimes teaches students some good stuff or interesting things that the student wants to learn, but those students may not turn out to be good guitar players, reach their goals or their true potential. Teacher B, the great teacher, isn't thinking about ‘I'll teach the student that little piece or I'll teach him this little piece’, instead there is a whole plan, system or strategy to take a student from where they are to where they ultimately want to go. So it doesn't really matter if we are talking about teaching people skills or talk about guitar teaching business and the process of attracting new students ... the philosophy is always the same. You need to have a really good strategy.
Before I go into more detail about the process of attracting new guitar students and what you need to do to make your ads and websites produce the results you want them to, test yourself now to find out how effective your methods of attracting new students really are. Test yourself on this page about attracting new guitar students.
Put Yourself In The Position Of a Prospective Guitar Student Looking For a New Teacher 
In order to create an effective strategy to attract new students, you need to understand how the process of attracting students really works. You need to think about what happens when a prospective student sees your ad, video or website and what happens after. Think about the flow of things and how the whole process works (from the perspective of the student, not from a teacher’s perspective).
As I mentioned before, prospective students don’t simply see an ad (or website) and then instantly become your new students in the next second. There is much more happening in between. It’s a step-by-step process. When the pieces of this process are not working together in a congruent way, then people don’t go all the way through to the finish line. That means they will never become your student.
Normally this is the place in an article where I offer some final piece of advice for you to implement. However, in this specific case 'general advice' is probably not what you need... What you want is specific advice based on your unique problems, challenges and goals. The most effective way I can help you is to know much more about where you are now and what challenges you face. I strongly encourage you to test your promotional methods now by taking the assessment on How To Get More Guitar Students  You will then get much more personalized and detailed advice on your unique situation and challenges.

elheaven solo album promo

11 tracks of rock instrumental music focused on the guitar.
"Strong debut album and - good - stuff for guitar players, or those who appreciate it."
"In my opinion, Elheaven is essential listening for obnoxious young guitarists who might feel that they only need to learn one playing style to succeed. Through Perilli’s master class showing, Elheaven demonstrates the importance of appreciating the different styles and blends of guitar playing, which is ultimately the true key to becoming a better guitarist."
".. cherry on top, the production. Elheaven have nothing less compared to a studio production, sound-wise and mixing-wise.. i strongly recommend this album to all those who love rock and metal instrumental music" BUY
