There is a reason barre has become among the most popular fitness practices in the world - inclusiveness. A mixture of dance exercises, yoga, and pilates, barre is a low-impact form of exercise that people of all age groups and sexes find easy to practice.

However, growing a barre studio business and expanding it is hardly as easy as practicing barre. Here’s a quick look at some of the obstacles barre studio owners such as yourself face, and how Bookee can help your barre studio grow.

Challenges faced by barre studio owners

Let’s begin with a quick overview of three challenges barre studio owners face that often prevent these studios from reaching their full potential.

  1. Managing bookings and payments
  2. Attracting new customers
  3. Retaining existing customers

Here’s a more detailed look at each of these growth obstacles.

Managing bookings and payments

These are two interrelated aspects that make a huge difference to the overall customer experience your brand provides. While many barre studios do have websites that allow prospective members to register themselves for classes, the process of registration and making payments is often lengthy and complicated.

Common distractions during this process are pop-up advertisements and unnecessary information. A complicated registration and payment process is enough to deter customers from signing up for your barre studio membership altogether.

Attracting new customers

One of the parameters that the growth of any business is measured by is by how many new customers register month on month. This holds good for barre studios as well.

However, a lot of studios find bringing in new customers easier said than done. They lack the expertise, and often, the tools needed to market their services and connect with their target audience, making it worth their while to sign up for barre classes at these studios.

Retaining existing customers

Another common issue that plagues fitness businesses is that while bringing in new customers is hard enough, they find it even harder to retain existing ones. Existing customers could leave for a variety of reasons, ranging from poor customer experiences to a lack of motivation and financial constraints.

While new customers are a great source of new income, it is the existing customers that ideally ought to pay to keep the bare studio afloat. When studios find it hard to retain customers, it isn’t unlikely to find them struggling to stay afloat.
