I guess you can say we were late to the app party. Better late than never, right? We finally delivered the StudioBookings app in early 2015. This, by the way was how we planned it. Why rush to deliver a subpar product just so we say we have an app. We are big believers in the philosophy that if we are going to do something, do it right and make sure it has value to our studio owners and their membership. Value is important to us. Read More

It’s a good chance that you are already using the ‘cloud’, you probably are just not aware of it. Do you use Gmail, Yahoo Mail or even Hotmail (now called Outlook)? If you answer yes to any of the above, you are already using the cloud. Notice that it does not matter what computer or smartphone or iPad you use or where you are, you have access to your emails from anywhere. This is the ‘cloud’ technology in a nutshell.
The cloud is a technology or service that allows you to save emails, files, photographs, documents, etc and then have access to them from anywhere using a computer, smart phone or tablet. Pretty cool right. No more saving documents to your PC and not having access to it because you are not home. Store your stuff in the cloud. Read More
Some say the fitness industry is not easy to excel in, we agree, its competitive. Even us here at StudioBookingsOnline find that our service of offering a great fitness studio management software is crowded. It does not matter how good of a following a studio owner or instructor has, if they are not marketing well enough the business may not succeed. No matter if they offer the best yoga software or the best and newest aerobic exercise programs there is always a variety of studios for potential members to pick from. This is why sites like Groupon and LivingSocial are so important. These “Deal” sites are great ways to bring in a lot of business. Sites like our StudioBookingsOnline can help you, the studio owner, keep track of your membership growth with ease. However, there is no doubt that “deal of the day” websites can help a small fitness studio grow membership. Read More

If you are a studio owner you probably remember the gut churning decision you made when deciding to go from instructor to studio owner and how hard that decision was, along with the sleepless nights that followed, even well after opening. It's very rare that a person with no knowledge of fitness or someone who has never taught a class opens a fitness or wellness studio. Read More
