Setup
Martynas will setup the required accounts and tracking

Facebook Business Manager, Ad Account, Pixel, Google Tag Manager, and event (user actions on the website) setup so you would know which ads get your registrations.

Working with Martynas is awesome, he really knows what he's doing. He knows how to deal with online visibility and social media promotion. And he knows very well how a local Swing community works. The combination of these two creates a unique knowledge and experience to support and guide us through this complicated world of online advertising. With his passion for Swing dancing, he delivers a very valuable contribution to making the world of Swing dancing grow all over Europe. Martynas combines efficient marketing with a big heart. He is well organized, works transparently, and is very reliable. It is a blessing to work with Martynas.

Much more than any marketing workshop, Martynas helped us to develop a clear and profound marketing strategy that works in the world of swing, no doubts. Since we started our classes and workshops are sold-out and we know exactly what to next. It’s work, no false illusions, but with Martynas it’s also fun and it definitely takes out the stress of content marketing (do I have to post daily, weekly and what the heck should I post next!?). EXACTLY what we needed in a (post-) pandemic world. And we are just at the beginning, can’t wait to see what happens when the long-term effects are kicking in.

Martynas did an amazing job helping The Swing Call with a better digital strategy! He helped us recruit new students and we reached more than the ideal objective! He's super professional, organised, he pushes us to try new things, manages campaigns in a very autonomous way. He totally understands the dance school stakes given that he managed one and of course has a very expert eye on the dancing given his skills! We were lucky to have him around and we will for sure ask him again for help! Thanks Martynas!

The Details

This Bootcamp is tailored for swing dance scene school/studio/event owners, fixers, managers, organizers.

It is an online learning experience designed to teach you how to use Facebook Ads in order to grow your scene. It is not a DIY video course that you are expected to go through on your own. I will expect you participating the lectures on Zoom if you want to have the best results for your school..

The workshop is not for everyone, but it might be for you. You should sign up if you’re stuck with marketing. If you feel that the efforts of organic posts on Facebook and Instagram do not fill the beginner classes. Sing up if you are using Facebook Ads but you have no idea how many actual registrations these ads are bringing in. Sign up now if you want to have a working system on how to get students for your classes.

There are many variables outside advertising that can stop you from growing – market, competition, the quality of your service, your offer, timing, etc.). But if you feel the only thing from growing is reaching potential students then this Bootcamp is a solution for you.

First, most people are on Facebook (now Meta) platform. Second, Facebook Ads is a fantastic tool if you want to get results (registrations) and not just to get brand awareness. Third, Facebook makes it easy to scale.

Google Ads would be an additional part of a full digital marketing strategy since you want to make sure people find you when they are searching for swing dancing. But it’s much more difficult to scale.

Pinterest, Tik Tok, or other ad platforms are not as advanced as Facebook therefore, the best results you can get with Facebook. Once you squeeze everything out from Facebook, you could test other platforms on the side.

If you set up everything according to the instructions with ads for local classes (courses) you should be getting registrations in a couple of days with a €10 daily budget. Keep in mind that performance varies depending on your location, competition, and offer.

Feel free to talk to me on Facebook.

Cost per Registration

Is €8.69 per registration cheap? Expensive? If your new students take at least 6 months of your classes on average, how much are you willing to spend so they join? Now add on top that these are the students you might not have joined you anyway since they wouldn’t see your organic posts.

Marketing is not a cost. It’s an investment that can help you and your scene grow.
