93% of all human communication is visual and pictures are processed 60’000 times faster (!) by the brain than words. Therefore it is crucial that your visual identity is consistent over all platforms starting by anything you have online – that includes your website and anything social media. Your visual identity is the way your academy feels and looks to the outside world.
Ideally, your potential new student should feel as if he was stepping into your academy when he enters your website. He can clearly see the bright, inviting and clean premises. He can scroll through professional head shots of all the instructors (after all, he will be learning from you!) and last but not least he will see other students, real students that train there. Not just the elite ones but also the white belts that just started the journey. If it all feels and looks right to him, he will call you to book for an intro session.

The academy looks like on the photos, she recognizes the instructors because she has seen the photos and might even see a few student’s faces that she remembers from the page. Straight away there is trust – what you show online represents who you really are as an academy. There is already a connection. And she relaxes.
