Any Suggestions Where Music Tutors Can Advertise

Hello everyone,

I'm looking for the ideal places for music tutors to advertise their services. (This is online teaching via Skype).
Any suggestions?

Thanks,

Anthony

    Facebook groups about music is one of the best place for sure, also music forum but you have to be intelligent, not spam with links but put a link in your signature and help lot of peoples.
    Just remember, you will have to be VERY patient, likes month of work to see some traction..

    Most people (in the US) would still go to craigslist for that. Or they'd ask their friends on FB.

      Thing is, it doesn't matter what or how many times I post to Craigslist my ads will NEVER appear. It seems so fake. I know people will argue that you CAN post to Craigslist but in over 10 years I have never managed to get ANY ad to stick. If someone has an account on Craig's and they're based in the US, I'd be happy to PAY THEM to post my ad on their account.

    If I were you, I'd get in contact with the music teachers ate the local elementary schools and high schools and have them refer parents to you.


    Also, I'd find out the local music stores that lease or lease with option to buy instruments to high school kids. They have websites you could convince them to let you advertise on, some have news letters, some let you put your ads in their store.


    Many kids pick up an instrument but parents are not convinced the kids are going to stick with it, so they lease an instrument with option to buy. That means that store sends them an invoice once a month for up to 3 years (a clarinet costs 900 and parents pay some 35 a month; some instruments are more expensive, some are cheaper). Point is, that store can also let you email your ads to their list of parents. For 3 years, presumably. If it's in the store's interest.


    It's your job to present yourself as useful to them... more so than the other tutors who reached them ahead of you.

    Music tutors should advertise locally as they have a limited catchment area. People would not travel hundreds of miles for a lesson. So it's local newspapers, billboards and websites that cater for the local area.

      I thought he was talking about online teaching
      in the way that Jermaine Griggs teaches music.

    Plenty of places especially if you can teach online. But it requires some equipment and training on how to use and handle the tools for you to succeed teaching online.

    You might also try SkillShare.com if you're looking to teach online. Otherwise you need to focus locally: local Facebook groups (music or educational in general), local music teachers (independent or those employed by schools), or music stores.

    Some other non-quarantine possibilities: ask your local library, bookstores, or coffee shops if you can post flyers; consider offering to give a free talk about music at your local library.

    Have you considered YouTube ads? Maybe a video of yourself playing something and then telling the audience something unique and compelling about your offer.

    Something like "Would you like to learn how to play _____ in 1/10th of the time without breaking the bank?" But, with whatever makes you unique.

    Then, demonstrate a sample lesson. I think that would be killer.

  • You can also try posting your services on Facebook marketplace. Creating a Google page would also allow you to reach local customers.

    Course sites: create courses on Udemy, Teachables and other similar sites.

    Create a high quality website and do effective SEO so you get lots of targeted visitors.

    Basic on-page SEO . . . content is the most important factor, so create a blog so you can add fresh content regularly. Each post should be at least 2,400 words so that it includes enough expert phrases for good SEO.

    Basic off-page SEO . . . only build back-links from sites which have a Domain Authority of 20+ and from pages which have content relevant to yours.

    Promote for free on social media. As others are saying, find relevant FB Groups, LinkedIn Groups, etc. and promote carefully there (do what other high quality businesses are doing effectively). Create a Pinterest profile and boards on relevant subjects and post daily. Create a FB Page and post daily, and Like other relevant Pages for increased reach.

    Paid ads, such as FB ads, Google ads (which include YouTube ads), etc. Either do a lot of research and testing, or find a relevant expert to help you. There are FB Groups about FB ads where you can ask for help and feedback, or find an expert.

    Hope that helps !

    We suggest you to have a nice blog and start blogging. It would be great to add audio files in your blog. This way, you don't have to be dependent on other sources for your promotion. Though it may take sometime but social media is there to catch immediate attention. Don't worry and go ahead and let world listen to your music and join your classes online.

    Facebook and Youtube are filled with members that are music hobbyists.
    These two places are great places to start your marketing efforts.
    You could also try marketing on TikTok.

    You could also post a simple Facebook post saying you have started music tutoring,list what you can offer to whom, and ask your friends and family if they could share that post and possibly tag someone or the parents of someone who might be interested in learning some music skills.

    Here in New Zealand I suggested to my neighbour that he send an email to all the schools in our region and ask them to include in their newsletter free music lessons. I then suggested he speak to the Ministry of Education and get them to pay for his time

    Because he is offering a subject that is part of the schools curriculum, long story short this could be an avenue for you to get your message infront of the people you want to teach...
