ALL GOOD THINGS MUST COME TO AN END…OR DO THEY?
Hopefully your center has been packed all summer long with kids enjoying bowling with family and friends as part of your summer bowling program or Kids Bowl Free. The days are filled with laughter and excitement. Lucky Train running through the center now sounds like a roller coaster ride at the theme park. Wouldn’t you like to keep those kids excited about bowling and coming to your center even when they are not being enticed with that magic four letter word…FREE? Wouldn’t you like to get back some of the money you gave out through the program this summer? You can…but not by keeping the valuable data locked up in your computer!
Kids participating in a summer bowling program offers a targeted audience for promoting youth leagues, birthday parties and other programs in your center. However, if you are sitting on your Kids Bowl Free data and not utilizing it to grow your business you are missing out on a BIG part of the value of the program. It’s like owning a Ferrari and keeping it covered in your garage and not driving it or showing it off!
