In this episode, we talk about:

  • The purpose of a metrics dashboard? How do I create one for my studio that I can trust? 
  • Addressing the concern – “I don’t need metrics if I don’t know how to use them!”
  • How often should you look at your metrics dashboard?
  • What marketing metrics actually matter? Daniel shares a list
  • Build a baseline where you’re most expecting returns
  • Nate shares a real-time example from a Brooklyn Music Factory summer camp week
  • But how does constantly tracking numbers actually benefit my studio?
  • Noticing patterns and trends in your marketing metrics – how a dashboard takes the “mystery” away
