When you have one home for your entire business, you save time so you can focus on what matters most: your students and your passion.
Ontraport comes with several done-for-you systems. Whether you want to send out member feedback surveys, launch a membership site or send newsletters to contacts, our plug-and-play Setup Wizards make it possible to customize and launch your martial arts marketing ideas in minutes.
We know that learning new software can be daunting, which is why we’ve made it easy to get started with Ontraport. When you sign up, we offer you over-the-top helpful support services to make sure you have what you need to grow for the long haul. Our highly rated support team is ready to answer all your questions via chat, email and screen share, and you can quickly learn how to use any feature using our 150+ Ontraport University video courses.
Most martial arts studios use some other platform before they upgrade to Ontraport. It’s a common tale: You start with one tool and, over time, keep adding more and more until you realize you need an all-in-one martial arts software that can handle your growth.
Ontraport integrates with almost everything, so you’ll be able to run Ontraport alongside your existing systems for as long as you need.
When shopping for software, you’ll want to take your entire business into account — not just the marketing, just the sales or just the client management side of things.
Whether you choose Ontraport or not, we recommend making sure your CRM and email marketing software includes the following features, at the very least:
- A website builder to share your business with the world online
- Email marketing software for martial arts studios to capture leads and stay in touch
- A contact management system to keep track of members and leads
- Billing software to collect payments for classes
- Martial arts membership software to launch a members-only community
As your business grows, you’ll probably need more sophisticated tools than standalone email marketing or website software. With everything running in Ontraport, you’ll have all you need now and in the future — all under one roof so you won’t have to switch platforms as your business scales.
We get it — you built your business because you love what you do, and you want to help your students improve their self-defense skills.
But you don’t get to spend as much time on your passion if you’re having to deal with a bunch of single-point solutions for all your essential marketing tasks: following up with members, sending out marketing messages and tracking campaign performance.
With Ontraport’s martial arts CRM, you have everything you need to market your studio in one place: a campaign-builder, email and SMS messaging, marketing analytics tools, lead source tracking and more. Instead of dealing with multiple integrations or pulling data from different sources to get things done, Ontraport lets you handle all your marketing needs in one place.
With Ontraport, it’s super easy to create a site that matches your vision. Simply use our martial arts website templates or, if you’d rather start from scratch, you can use our drag-and-drop editor to customize your pages to look exactly how you want. You’ll also get access to our web form builder, which lets you create fully customizable forms to capture details about your leads and members.
The best part? All these features live under the same roof as your payment system, CRM, marketing automation and more.
