Who should showcase their Wing Chun school? Sifus, kwoon managers, and others who offer lessons. Nearly each week I get an email from a potential Wing Chun student asking me to recommend a school or sifu (even in non-English speaking countries!) ...
Instead of recommending them to a specific kwoon I've never visited, I send them to the Wing Chun schools page where they can research and find lessons near them.
If you're not listed there, you probably won't get the call and you will miss out on one or more new and eager students.
There are three (3) areas where you can put information and Showcase your school, plus one (1) bonus section:
A few details on how to get the best results and attract local students follows below. But first...
How much does it cost to showcase your Wing Chun school?
costs nothing. It's complimentary. It's Free. So take advantage of it.
I could charge something, I should charge something, but like I said above, I get asked all the time to recommend schools.
At this point it's just easier and quicker to point all these eager Wing Chun students to a page on the site and let them do their own homework and call you directly... and then let you do your job of encouraging them to give Wing Chun a try at your kwoon.
If I do decide to charge a fee for this very valuable and generous service (details below) in the future, each school currently showcased will be grandfathered in. The fees will be waived. Fair?
The heading is very important. This is the fastest and only way potential students will use to find your school!
Make it easy for them to find you, and they will call you.
I've found that the following sequence works best. So...
Use this sequence:
Wing Chun School: City, State/Province, Country
Wing Chun School: New York, New York, USA
Wing Chun School: Paris, France
Wing Chun School: Sydney, Australia
Feel free to add a term locals use for your area.
For example, in Los Angeles locals know where 'The Valley' is. But you'll never find it on any map or atlas. This is a term only locals use. I bet you know similar terms for neighborhoods or areas near you.
You may even use a major junction or intersection.
Use it in your heading if it will help potential students 'know' where you're located.
Avoid abbreviating cities, state/province, or country unless it’s very, very obvious to everyone, especially me.
To make things easier for Wing Chun students to find your school, I categorize the schools by their geographic location.
Let's make this fast and easy. Don't make me walk Google Earth or do extra research. Help potential students find you, quick!
Is Your Kwoon or Students Located in a 'Non-English Speaking Country'?
Great! I get many potential students from non-English speaking countries asking me to recommend schools and sifus. Help me help them find your academy!
In the heading, please write in “Romanized” letters (i.e. A, B, C) first, then in
your native language. This will help me know where to put your school on our worldwide schools list.
For example, if you’re in Egypt. Please follow the sequence:
Wing Chun School: City, State/Province, Country in Romanized letters first—
Wing Chun School: Cairo, Egypt (In Egyptian)
Right behind the Romanized spelling. If your school is in China, do the same, but write in Chinese right behind the Romanized spelling. Japan, do the same, etc.
Do You Have Many School Branches You'd Like to Showcase?
Either list the main headquarters or make sure each entry has a unique heading.
Unique is important because it won't look like spam. If it looks like spam, potential students may get a bad impression and will not call.
You are showcasing your school, so make it stand out. Be proud. Write at least 300 words, which is about 3 to 5 paragraphs.
If you don't like to write, ask a current student, family, or friend to help.
Potential students are researching schools and sifus to call and visit. Many new students are comparing Wing Chun against other martial arts!
Give them something meaty to read that encourages them to call you and give Wing Chun a try.
If all you have is one sentence or just your website address, it gives a bad impression to potential students. They'll get the feeling you didn't care enough to try.
There's no limit in the words you can write, so you should have enough room to really connect with potential students. But at a minimum try to get 300 words (3 to 5 paragraphs).
Still Have Trouble Writing?
A lot of people do, so here are a few suggestions:
Do You Have Many Branches You'd Like to Showcase?
Either list the main headquarters or make sure each entry has unique body content!
Don't repeat the same thing over and over again. Each one has to be unique, otherwise it will look like spam. And if it does, potential students will get a bad impression and won't call.
Is Your Kwoon or Students Located in a 'Non-English Speaking Country'?
That's awesome! Many potential students from non-English speaking countries
ask me to recommend schools and sifus. Help them find your school.
After following the step for the heading, explained above in #1 The Heading under non-English speaking countries... Just write your body in your own language!
** Please make sure to follow the "heading" step above so I know where to showcase your school. Thanks. **
The Showcase application form accepts international characters i.e. Chinese, Japanese, Arabic, Hindi, etc. So you shouldn't have any trouble.
Follow the suggestions for writing helpful and interesting information in the body (i.e. 300 words, contact info, What do you love about Wing Chun, etc.) and that's it.
Can I Write This/Do This/Complete the Showcase Application Form for You?
I've been asked this before. What I know is, in order for me to do something like this for you, you must provide me information.
And if you take the time to put together and provide me with this information, you have what you need to do it all yourself.
However, I realize people are busy.
So if you really want me to do it, and you can't get anyone else to help you, contact me to discuss. There will be a fee, which we'll go over.
If I get more of these requests, then I'll look into making this into a more formal arrangement. Until then contact me directly and let me know you want my help.
The heading and body steps above are mandatory. You can't showcase your school without them. But adding pictures and images (and video, explained below) are optional.
Be aware that pictures and images are powerful and potential students like to see them. It will also make your school stand out so it is highly recommended to add pictures (four (4) is the maximum).
You can also include images like your school's logo, if you have one. This is a smart move to better brand your school and help it get noticed.
Simply follow the steps to upload your pictures or images on the Wing Chun School Showcase application form.
If you don't have any pictures or images now, no problem. We can include them later when you do.
** You may only use pictures and images that you
own all the rights to, or have permission to use.
Respect other people's property. **
Video is powerful and will make your school stand out. It's strongly recommended to use a video on your Showcase. But if you don't have one now, no problem. We can include it later when you do.
If you have a video, just include the link (i.e. YouTube, Vimeo, etc.).
I'll embed it behind the scenes, after it's approved. This is the only way to add video to your exclusive Showcase page at this time.
** You may only use video that you
own all the rights to, or have permission to use.
Respect other people's property. **
Fill in this form and help new local students discover your kwoon! There's no cost for this service.
