As a yoga studio, you want to do the one thing you love: teaching yoga. You don’t want to worry about any other things that comes when you run a yoga studio, like managing clients, schedules, paying your teachers, and all of the other daunting tasks that may come along when it comes to owning a studio. It is really important for you to find a wellness software that will do anything and everything you need to get done so you can go back to teaching yoga and having a fun time doing so. Not having to sweat about how the next day is going to turn out (that’s what the gym is for!)
These are the top 7 things you should look for when looking for a new Wellness Software.
Scheduling can be hard to get right. You should be able to make quick edits on the go and get a clear picture of all the appointments you have so nothing falls in between the cracks, even on the go. Whichever software you choose, should have an efficient online scheduling software that will easily connect with your teachers and students if there ever needs to be a scheduling change. The software should have a calendar that is easy to edit and can give you reminders about any appointments and classes.
Nobody likes to deal with cancellations. Are you sad that you have one less student coming to your class? Yes. But are you even more sad that you have to deal with the entire cancellation process with refunds and all of the other things that come along with when a client cancels? Honestly yes. Your software should be able to easily figure out all of your business’ finances with ease and keep you in the loop while doing so. With a good management software, your cancellations should be easily shown to you so you easily manage refunds and update their packages if needed.
You’re busy. Notifications should be able to help you and alert you when something needs your attention so you can run your business as intended. Being able to manage notifications in the software and being able to set which notifications are are actually important is crucial when you are running an business or else everyday you will be drowning. A good management software doesn’t only manage your money and clients, it helps you run your business.
What do I mean by this? Your software should be logical and intuitive. You shouldn’t have to guess what a button click will do. Everything will be easily accessed from the dashboard. With a software that is easy to use, you can cut through all of the annoying parts of running a business and quickly do what needs to be done. When your software is five steps ahead of you, it helps you be more successful and efficient.
Marketing is the hardest part of running any organization. But you probably hate sending emails and putting up flyers to finding clients. Your software should have all of the important information of your clients and should make contacting them a breeze. Your software should also be able to tie up with your social media accounts to help you streamline all of your marketing into one place.
Your software should be fast. I mean come on its 2019 that shouldn’t be too much to ask for. But you may be surprised to hear, there are many softwares out there who use old technology, making loading time a lot longer than it should be. You should be using a fast wellness software that will help you get your clients up and running. You should make your software your slave, not have you be theirs. Find technology that is hosted on the cloud, making everything more efficient.
Running a business is expensive. You shouldn’t have to make it more costly than it is. For a monthly subscription, you should only have to pay for the features that you need so you can spend that money saved on spoiling yourself and your clients. Spend some time to compare all of the prices of the wellness softwares and make sure that you are getting the best bang for your buck.
If you want to make your life easier, make sure you really take these considerations into account. Hopping between softwares is extremely inconvenient so make sure you do your thorough research before you settle with one. You want to find one that is the most customizable for you, I mean after all, you want your wellness software to work for you rather than you working for it.
