The Reception Android App

Allowing your customers to check to a class easily is extremely important.

The Easy Way to Getting 5 * Reviews for your Martial Arts Business!

In today’s world, when people are looking for products or services in their area, the most common way they do it is by going to Google and searching.

For example, for martial arts in Sydney they would so something like:

The main thing we want to point out here though, is the rating field which is highlighted by the red arrow. Studies have shown that businesses with 5 star ratings get far more leads from google than businesses without.

So, how do you get 5 star reviews? 
Well, the first step is to ensure you have your Google Business Page setup and up to date. If you haven’t done that then go and do it.

Then, once your Google page is setup, the easiest way to get your 5 star reviews is … (and this is not rocket science) … is to ask your existing members to go there and leave you one!

Now because Google wants to maintain the integrity of the reviews left, they need to validate the reviewer. And although the reviewer can review without a gmail address, given that a user with a gmail ad…

How to View Your Subscription Info

New Page - View your Arnold Subscription & Print Invoices Last night we released an update to Arnold Gym Management. It was only a minor release, but along with some minor formatting to a couple of reports and screens (we're always on the look-out for ways in which we can increase our product and make it easier), we have added one extra bit of functionality.

Previously, when Arnold used to run as a Windows Application, you could print your subscription invoices and give to your accountant.

And as with all re-writes, the critical things are done first and then there is a flow on down to the important and then nice-to-haves.

Up until last night, we would email you a copy of your subscription summary - with the details of how many open members you have and the monthly fee.

However, now there is a new page where you can access it at any time, print old invoices and review the member break down.

Simply click the new Subscriptions option from the main menu to access the page.

Getting the basics right

Every successful business owner will mention how important it is to track and know your numbers.

Let's look at a martial arts business. What numbers do you need to know? Let's start with some simple questions:
How many classes are on per day/week/month?Who attended? Who taught them?Has everyone who attended them paid?They're just some simple and basic ones. But important and critical if you want to manage your business.

Imagine that every day you needed to create your daily timetable and then enter your student names, and check their payments, and in what generic software (in excel for example) ..?

It would take ages. And then working out if their 10-class-pass was up, or if their direct debit payment failed ... it's the stuff of nightmares!

It is exactly this scenario that Arnold does with exactly a few mouse clicks (or even less if your members use the mobile app).

Simply define your class timetable one time, and then everyday Arnold will generate the class records.
