Marketing Strategies:

Social Media

Tippi Toes focuses heavily on social media (Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter) to promote its classes, share photos and videos of its students, and post testimonials from satisfied parents. Social media can also be used to offer special discounts or promotions to new customers.

Partnerships with Schools and Community Centers

Tippi Toes partners with local schools and community centers to offer dance classes as an after-school program or as part of a community program. This can help reach a larger audience and generate more leads for the business. We often work with the schools to use direct marketing into the cubbies, email compaigns, and open houses to share our brand.

Email Marketing

Franchise owners have the ability to collect email addresses from existing customers and use email marketing to keep them informed about new classes, promotions, and events. This is an effective way to build a loyal customer base and encourage repeat business.


Tippi Toes can host events such as dance recitals, birthday parties, and camps to attract new customers and showcase its services. Events can also be used to promote the business to potential partners, such as schools and community centers.

Buying a Franchise Guide: What is a Franchise Disclosure Document?

When evaluating a franchise opportunity, reading and understanding the current version of their FDD is a necessity. Considering the benefits of franchising, such as established brand recognition and support from the franchisor, it's important to also take into account franchise fees and franchising royalty fees. Since most franchisors are privately owned companies, the current versions of their FDDs are typically not available unless requested directly from them.
