Focused on Marketing & Sales and getting more students in your classes. Includes the best SEO to list on top of search results with analytics you can see in real-time, Google Ads optimized with conversion tracking showing new accounts and orders so you know to the penny your marketing profits and ROI for each campaign, effective calls to action and landing pages, easy to find programs matching ages and types, simple registration, upsell messages and incentives, one page checkout, easy to afford automated payment options, and much more. Not good for Marketing and not user friendly will lose customers, does not list well in search results with poor SEO and no analytics so unable to see visitor activity, Google Ads cost more and perform poorly and you are unable to add conversion tracking so won't know how ads are performing, no calls to action and ineffective landing pages, hard to find programs, long complex registration, no upsells or incentives, many pages and clicks needed to checkout.
Can be fully customized – it is yours to setup and further develop in any way you want… so many options! Can not be customized – using the same system and database as all their other customers.
Easy enrollment with fully automated payment options – examples (1) pay half now and half on February 1, (2) pay 10 monthly payments and add a $20 admin fee to 1st payment), (3) Summer Programs must Pay in Full. Enrollment without actual payment – payments not automated, must process manually (! this is the main reason for developing our own solution).
Automated upsell incentives when ordering on-line – examples: (1) order another program and save 10%, (2) order another 2 programs and save 15%. Can’t do that.
Different options with prices available for different programs – examples: (1) when selecting your student boys get 50% discount, (2) add costume deposit, (3) add early drop off and/or late pick up for Summer Programs. Can’t do that.
Special Enrollment for Competitive Dancers. Several ways to customize this, the most popular option is to allow anyone to enroll in Auditions/Tryouts – then after you offer each student specific required and optional programs which non-competitive families do not see. Your compettitive families will like how quick and easy it is to select all programs on one form per student. Can’t do that.
Customer login portal is in your own website so your customers can securely view orders, update credit card info, view student enrollments sorted by times with buttons to add to their calendars and download music and so much more – the possibilities are endless. Customer login portal is not in your website with no ability to customize the look or functionality.
No limit to number of administrative users. Your Staff and Teachers and outsourced providers can have customized access levels to website content / newsletters / students / accounts / orders / payments / programs / enrollments / and more. Can only have a few administrative users with limited restrictions available.
Setup & Updates & Maintenance – can either do all the work yourselves or let us quote on what you need help with. Setup & Updates & Maintenance – can either do all the work yourselves or let us quote on what you need help with.
Support & Training – work directly with the lead developer / webmaster / graphic designer / marketing expert / dedicated account representative / professional trainer by phone & internet (and in person at your studio for those close by). Support & Training – email based support with some self-help on-line training. Recommend hiring us (or your own webmaster & accountant & office administrator) to help you with integration and setup and working out procedures for managing the jackrabbit system.
