Your Online Presence

Your Online Presence

In this day in age, it’s safe to say that we expect the vast majority of businesses to have their own website or at least some form of online presence. But setting up and managing your own businesses website can be tricky… right? This is why NEST has developed a simplified solution for martial arts instructors to get their business online and manage it easily… myMA Websites.

Setting up and managing your website

Most people can often think that setting up a website is some sort of technical nightmare, but there are tools to help make this process a little easier, known as Content Management Systems (CMS). Content Management Systems such as myMA Websites, turn the technical mumbo-jumbo that is behind your website, into a visual and easier to understand format. This enables you to click a few buttons, type into text boxes and drag and drop images, then through the magic of internet wizardry, they get turned into a website.

myMA Websites have been designed to reduce the amount of technical knowledge required to setup and edit your website, with the aim is to make it as easy as possible to take control of your own website and keep it updated. You can even add additional users to help you maintain the website, making it even more simple to manage.

Desktop, tablet and mobile ready


When it comes to your website, it’s important to ensure that everyone viewing it has the same experience. This means that people visiting your website on a smart-phone are able to browse around it as easily as those who visit using a desktop computer. But with the ever increasing amount of devices that can connect to the internet and there varied screen sizes, you would think that designing your website would be another one of those nightmares.

With the myMA Website templates, we have built them to be 100% responsive meaning they work across all devices, phones, tablets and laptops. This means you only have to add text and images to a page and when you are happy with it, publish it to the internet. Your site will automatically adjust to fit the device you’re viewing it on. Try our Demo School site out on mobile and desktop to see it in action.

Built in booking system


We all love a bit of convenience these days, the quicker and more straightforward something is, the better! When visiting a website, it’s safe to say we are looking either for information or a way in which we can order something we are interested in quickly and easily.

You may recall that a few weeks ago we launched our online booking widget that you can add to your own website, enabling you to take trial lessons bookings right from your website. We took this idea a step further and integrated them into all myMA Websites for clients, meaning it is even easier to setup your online trial lesson booking forms and pages.

Online class timetables


It’s one thing to give people the facility to do something such as online booking through your martial arts website, but some people like to make an informed choice or are simply just curious for more information. Having something like a class timetable helps people see what type of classes you offer and when they are available at a glance.

Well good news! This is something we have again built into the myMA Websites. These classes are displayed with the same information as your classes on Get Into Martial Arts, meaning you only have to update them myMA and they then update everywhere. Pretty nifty right?

Capturing that information


It’s important that any information you get for potential students is recorded, as this lets you follow up any leads and potentially grow your student numbers. It can be a little tricky sometimes, especially when you may be busy with classes to capture all this information and get it recorded somewhere. You certainly don’t want to lose out on a potential student but you also don’t want to disrupt your lessons. That’s where NEST and myMA Websites come in yet again to help!

We have taken the great features myMA already has and added them into the myMA Websites. Allowing any bookings made through your myMA Website to automatically be recorded into a myMA prospect database. Allowing you to focus on teaching your classes without the worry of losing potential students.
