What are Happity Followers and how does it work?
When parents view your profile on Happity, we invite them to 'Follow' you for updates on your classes. This is especially useful if they're interested in what you do, but they can't see a time / venue that works for them right now.
Then when you add classes on Happity - whether these are virtual or in-person - we'll send your latest timetable to your followers, helping you to grow your business without even trying!
Your ready-made email marketing list
To ensure you get maximum benefit from this feature, parents are also asked if they would like to opt-in to YOUR OWN newsletter too. We ask for their express permission to share their email addresses with you, so that you can export your followers to do your own email marketing if you wish.
If you're not ready to use this data yourself, that's totally OK - you can collect followers on Happity and they'll all be there to export whenever you're ready - and in the meanwhile, we'll be sending them your latest timetables automatically. 🙂
By default, we'll distribute timetables 4 times a year for everyone - at the start of each term. Classes from Happity Members get sent out first.
In addition, we run interim checks on Member's classes during the term, and send out a specific alert when new classes are added.
You'll also be able to find out where your followers are located. This will help you see which areas to expand into and grow your business at new venues (our venue directory can also help with this). 🎉
