Your website is a little busy.

Try offering first class or week free.

Free private lessons for the first 5, 10 or whatever to sign up 3 months.

Post about your school in the UG and maybe purchase a business membership for the site to help promote your school.

Offer a kids class.

Goodluck with it Bro.

Create some genuinely helpful and free videos and post them onto YouTube.

Create social media accounts and start engaging with your target audience, offering genuinely helpful information.

Try not to be to pushy with the selling bit.

Good luck.

Facebook has helped me to bring in maybe 25percent of my student base.but not advertising on Facebook. Just by my students and fighters posting statuses about the gym or the good workouts, or getting ready for fights. Also occasionally posting videos of group classes or pad work, etc. I usually get one or two messages a month thru Facebook I quoting about my gym. Phone Post
