If you are beginning your Pilates career as an Independent Contractor (IC,) you are probably interested in learning from the experiences of those who have been doing it for a long time. Pilates-Pro.com has been running a very valuable discussion on what should be in an IC agreement, what percentage is typically paid to the studio and a lot more.
Good customer service is key to success, especially in locations in which Pilates studios are a dime a dozen. Lara Dalch, a corporate media executive turned fitness professional, gave some pointers in an article on Pilates-Pro.com:
Local Networking: Connect with doctors, chiropractors, physical therapists and small businesses in your area. Make sure they know about your work and its benefits. Trade business cards and brochures with them. Display their cards on your front desk and ask them to do the same for you. In most cases they will.
BASI Workshop: Host BASI Workshops and become known as the BASI advanced education studio in your locality.
