A Musical Beginning
Both the co-founders of beAMusician, Paras and Akshay have deep roots in music. So it was natural for them to create a business around music. However, setting up a physical location to teach music and musical instruments is expensive, limiting to outreach possibilities and unsustainable.
Plus with the pandemic, people were sceptical of approaching physical institutions. It was clear to the co-founders that online was the way to go.
“From the beginning, it was clear that we wanted to build an online business where we were able to reach out to a large audience and create the maximum impact” says Paras Surana, Co-founder and Director - beAmusician
Paras knew that to achieve his goals, grow and scale his business, and get their courses and coaching programs in front of the right people, they would need to invest in the right platform.
With that, they chose to invest in Knorish after watching a few Knorish webinars on why Sales Funnels are important for growing a business, especially an online business and how to build one for your business with Knorish.
“As we launched and grew with Knorish, every feature that we were thinking of to take our business to the next level, Knorish was launching those. It’s like you were listening to what we were thinking of” says Paras.
Using Knorish Funnel Builder To Grow The Business
Driving growth in the business to build a profitable online coaching business needs a lot of experimentation. “A strategy that works for one business may not work for another, so we have done a lot of testing on what works, and what doesn’t. But ultimately what worked for us was the simple targeting and then retargeting campaigns” says Akshay Surana. beAmusician strategy was a success because they implemented a basic Landing Page Funnel that was well designed and had great content. By driving exponential traffic from Facebook & Instagram, the founders were able to scale their business quickly.
To drive better returns on ad spends and increase revenue, the team experimented with several offers & funnels including discounts on musical instruments offered with each course purchase. They also experimented with multiple price points to understand the best price that customers were comfortable paying.
One key insight that they discovered was that in order to charge a certain premium for the courses, the video quality for course content, ads and creatives had to be such that it was perceived as premium content. After several iterations, and reshoots of the content, the first violin course was launched in 2021.
“Before we launched our first violin course, we had dumped the content of 2 other courses because the production value was not that great,” says Akshay Surana, co-founder and Director, beAmusician.
Once the video content quality and the ideal course pricing were fixed, the next step was to optimize and scale ads to get maximum exposure and returns on the ad spend.
“Amongst all platforms available, Facebook & Instagram ads have been the primary source of leads and conversions for us. But what has really helped us do well is the platform and the ability to offer the complete learning experience with Knorish.” says Akshay Surana.
Knorish’s native integration of Zoom within the platform enabled beAmusician to offer live coaching sessions as part of their overall offering. This has further fuelled the growth of the business since the live sessions based programs are offered at a much higher premium.
