Ideas for Starting Your Own Driver’s Education School

“Brand” is relevant to every business no matter what size it is, and we need to establish our brand to survive the competition.

How will branding yourself as a Driving Instructor and a small business keep you “top of mind” with your students and parents?  What do you need to spend on branding – a small fortune?

Establishing your brand is more about how your customers perceive your business.  Even if your driving school is a mom-n-pop business, you can create an impression with your customers that you are professional, trusted and knowledgeable by being exactly that! Read More

How that is some Driving Instructors get away with charging a little more for their driving lessons than others yet still seem to be leading the way with lots of business and recommendations.  Customers will pay for perceived value for money.  With delivering a consistently excellent service and creating an enjoyable and educational experience for learner drivers (and parents), the market will place value on this and pricing becomes insignificant as they see the expertise and value in what is being offered, delivered and maintained.  As the old saying goes – “You get what you pay for”!  If the experience meets the expectations of what a student and parent expect and deserve – they will value it.

Your brand basically sums you up as a Driving Instructor and once you have established it, keep building it and protect it by meeting your students and parents expectations consistently – the same experience for past, present and future customers.  What messages are you planting in your customer’s minds?  When a customer speaks to a friend about your services, what are they saying?  If they see an ad from your business, how do they feel?  Most of all, if they book lessons with you – what do they expect and are their expectations fulfilled?  All these things are considered when selecting your driving school over another?

Many of us may think that our “brand”, starts and ends with the lesson.  Our service, knowledge and expertise is top priority but our students also remember us because of the overall experience they receive.  Your brand as a Driving Instructor or Driving School is earned over time – not over one lesson.

This experience can be likened to a “journey” or a road trip – a student going from selecting us, booking with us, perceiving our lesson value, repeat booking with us and ultimately passing their driving license.  This journey should be enjoyed by the student who gains value every step of the way.  It is the customer experience from the time they find you through to the time they are ready to drive solo.  Give your customers a truly unique experience, one they will rave about.

In the book driving lessons online today, there are many excellent driving instructors.  It is competitive and many of us are trying to attract the same students in our local areas.  We all advertise similar lessons, packs and “promises”.  Who actually delivers on those promises?  Offers the best experience end-to-end?  This overall experience will help solidify your professional brand and lead to a strong reputation and recommendations.

Start mapping out how your students and parents interact with you – what is their experience from the first point of contact?  Think through the process from a student or parent’s perspective, put yourself in their shoes! Is it a breeze or is it a nightmare? Endeavour to make their experience great and fulfil all their expectations and you will cross the winning line first…

Carry out a business health check:

  • How do your students and parents find you?
  • How do they know when you are available?
  • How do they know if you offer manual and auto?
  • How you do they book with you?
  • How much time is spent on back and forth texts and phone calls?
  • How do they pay for their lesson or lesson packs?
  • How do they remember they have a lesson so they show up?
  • How do they receive feedback on what they need to improve on and what they are doing well?
  • How do parents know where their students are at and where they need extra help?

Most importantly how easy, conveniently and seamlessly does all of the above happen?  And how do each of the above actions impact your day as a driving instructor?  These mundane tasks, phone calls and texts take up YOUR valuable time – time that could be spent on more important aspects like ongoing development, training, focussing more on lesson content and adding value in other areas that you only think and dream of? Don’t forget a day off or a holiday here and there!

How would you like to automate each and every one of these tasks as a start?  If you looking for a niche solution in the learner driver industry – look no further.

Other tips to build your brand:

  • If you have other instructors as part of your brand – take onboard their ideas and expertise so everyone is on the same page with “consistency”.
  • It’s always a good idea that all instructors are trained in a similar way to deliver this brand consistency
  • Offer your students and parents value-add information over and beyond their lesson
  • Remember names and birthdays – if these details are stored in a CRM system at your fingertips all the better!  YLOODrive could be your CRM of student and lesson history!
Travel Risk Management

How safe is it to travel to Russia for the 2018 FIFA World Cup?

Frank Figliuzzi is the Chief Operating Officer of ETS Risk Management, Inc., a global provider of travel security, Travel Risk Management, executive protection, threat intelligence and major event security. Frank is the former FBI Assistant Director of Counterintelligence, and recent head of Investigations, Special Event Security and Workplace Violence Prevention for General Electric.

How safe is it to visit Russia?

Virtually no travel to Russia is without risk.  Russia travel risk assessment is driven by three factors:

  1. Location specific inherent risks;
  2. The nature of the travel;
  3. And, the individual traveller.

For example, hate crimes against foreigners, minorities, and the LGBT community occur in Russia because of an apparent tolerance for such conduct as reflected in weak legislative prohibitions and an unwillingness to prosecute. Deadly terror attacks happen in Moscow, the north Caucasus and, most recently, St. Petersburg because of long-standing organic ethnic, religious and regional strife such as the Chechen/Russian conflict including possible sympathies for ISIS within the Chechen region.

Travel in connection with special events or sporting matches raises the already well documented daily risk of tourists targeted by pickpockets and muggers, often by organized gangs in major cities. Individual travellers of Asian or Afro-Caribbean descent or who simply “don’t look like they belong” in the eyes of certain locals should exercise particularly enhanced vigilance.

Business travellers should understand that electronic devices are frequently targeted for intrusion via malware and other means in an attempt by the Russian intelligence services to access proprietary corporate information for a competitive edge.

Despite the inherent risks, travellers who make the effort to seek the “ground truth” of their destination through their own government alerts, reading current country risk profiles offered by established security firms, and who maintain vigilance and a low-profile, can easily mitigate the risks and enjoy a memorable trip to a vast and proud nation.

How safe will it be to go to the World Cup?

Travelers to the World Cup are advised of the significant risk posed by organized hooligans who seek to engage in brutal fights with opposing fans from countries like Britain, France and other nations.

Russian hooliganism is marked by elements distinct from traditional hooliganism in the UK and Europe. Law enforcement agencies with decades of experience in securing soccer competitions have documented observations of Russian thugs who are highly trained and prepared to fight. These hooligans physically train in body-building and fight techniques and they make a point of not drinking alcohol during matches to maintain an advantage over their UK or European counterparts.

Disturbingly, Russian government leaders seemingly encourage such behaviour with Russian Ministers quoted saying “Keep up the good work”, and Putin himself observing how Russian fans had quite literally beaten the English fans.

However, a major world event such as the World Cup is likely to be secured by the highest level of Russian national security agencies who understand the negative impact globally of any major incident during the World Cup.  The largely incident-free Winter Olympics in Sochi, even under threat of terrorism, is evidence that Russian can secure a major event when it chooses.

What are the biggest risks?

Opportunistic crimes such as pick-pocketing and other thefts are common in major Russian cities. This risk includes theft from hotel rooms and theft from vehicles. Cases are well-documented of visitors whose drinks were spiked at bars for the purpose of robbery, rape or other violence. Unconscious victims are often left outside sometimes with life-threatening implications especially in the cold winter months. Further reports exist of criminals impersonating police officers for the purpose of harassing and robbing tourists.

Travel Risk Management

What are the overlooked risks?

Travellers to Russia often overlook or dismiss the reality that the Russian government is in near total control of infrastructure which facilitates intelligence service targeting of western business and government travellers to include remote intrusion into their devices, or, even outright theft of their laptops, smart phones and other devices.

Similarly, hotel frequented by western travellers are particularly notorious for intelligence collection, entrapment and attempts to compromise western business and government visitors. This fact poses a dilemma for travellers seeking to avoid such targeting by possibly choosing a local, non-westernized hotel.

However, such a choice often increases the odds of opportunistic crimes such as theft or assault and can antagonize the intelligence services who may become perturbed by your diversion from the usual hotel chains.

How should people mitigate this?

Risk mitigation remains similar to advice given for most international travel.

Specifically, avoid open display of wealth, including expensive jewellery, and anything that may identify you as a tourist. Avoid walking alone at night. Be vigilant for pickpockets in main tourist areas and around the main railway stations, and keep your passport tightly secured. Always buy your own drinks at the bar and keep them in sight at all times.

To mitigate the risk of being victimized by “fake” police officers, always insist on seeing identification if you are stopped.

What duty of care provisions should employers sending staff to Russia have in place? What should employees ask for?

Business leaders sending employees to Russia are advised to include professional risk management measures into the travel plan.

These measures should include physical security guidance, protection of intellectual property, and potential medical consultation and even evacuation. The addition of enhanced security enables your team to focus on business objectives within minimal constraints or distractions.  Employees should ask for loaner devices to take that contain only the data needed for that trip and bring a reliable communication device.

Employees traveling for lengthy periods, particularly to more remote areas of Russia, should understand that the local hospital blood supply may not be screened for HIV and other diseases as is the standard in the US, UK and other nations. Therefore, employees should ask about medical evacuation plans in the event of an unexpected need for surgery.

A Guide to Letterpress Wedding Invitations in Australia

Letterpress wedding invitations are truly a thing of beauty. If you compare it with a normal, digitally printed invitation, you could see that there is absolutely no comparison at all. The letterpress invitation is superior in every which way – quality, style, aesthetics, and a sense of uniqueness.

Resurgence of Letterpress Printing

Letterpress printing, in case you did not know, is the oldest method of printing. The technique was used by men of letters back in the days to print volumes and volumes of books, which we read till date. The printing process is quite labor intensive, as you have to arrange each and every letter in the text one by one. The raised surface is then coated with ink and pressed against a sheet of paper, which leaves an impression of the text on the paper.

Digital printing, on the other hand, is fast, instant, and requires very little work. So, it became the choice of printers all over the world in a short time. However, there has been a resurgence of letterpress printing in many countries around the world, including Australia. Many printers have combined letterpress with modern printing and created a unique amalgamation of printing method. Instead of metal or wooden plates, photopolymer plates are used for printing. These plates are a lot easier to use, maintain, repair, and replace than traditional metal or wooden plates. Thanks to the new method, printing letterpress invitations has become a whole lot easier and less cumbersome these days.

Advantages of Letterpress Printing

  • The impressions are so deep that you can actually feel by running your fingers across the surface of the invitation. There is a certain novelty factor involved in this type of printing, which cannot be explained unless you experience it yourself.
  • Letterpress printers in Australia usually use the highest quality paper to print invitations for special occasions. The printing technique works well with any type of paper – no matter how thick and heavy it is – including the extra stocky treeless cotton paper. It is not possible with digital printing.
  • Letterpress printing creates bold, crisp patterns that look spectacular on a wedding invitation. The quality of craftsmanship involved is such that it is virtually impossible to replicate it through digital printing.
  • When it comes to wedding invitations Australia is one of few countries that have still maintained the old school tradition of letterpress printing. Many printers here take pride in the fact that they play a role in preserving and propagating a traditional printing method that has continued to evolve through the centuries. So, by opting for letterpress cards and invitations, you are playing a part in keeping the tradition alive and supporting the printers who do the same.

Choosing the Right Wedding Invitation

If you have decided to opt for letterpress wedding invitations for your wedding, you are not alone. The printing technique is back in vogue and many couples are opting for the same due to the novelty factor and also the fact that the invitations are so aesthetically pleasing. Before you place your order, there are a few things you need to know.

  • Letterpress printing is more expensive than digital printing. So, your budget should be your primary concern. Make a list of letterpress printers in your city, talk to them, and ask them for a quote. Compare the quotes and choose one that suits your budget.
  • It also takes longer than flat printing. So, place your order well in advance. You cannot rush the printer at the last minute because there is nothing much he can do. The process is time-consuming and labor-intensive and the printer has to put in a lot of time and effort to get it perfectly made according to your specifications.
  • Try to get everything right the first time. Sit down with the graphic designer and tell him exactly what you want. Once the draft is ready, take a good look at it and let them know if there are any changes to be made. Making changes repeatedly is not an option with letterpress printing due to the laborious nature of the process.
  • Most printing presses in Australia have a catalogue of letterpress wedding invitations for you to choose from. If you want something truly unique, you can opt for a customized invitation, which will be designed and printed especially for you. It does, however, cost more than readymade invitations. If budget is not a constraint, you can definitely opt for bespoke invitations, which are a perfect choice for a truly special occasion like wedding.

How Do You CSS?

CSS or Cascading Style Sheets is a coding language that was invented after HTML to add styling to an otherwise plain and boring webpage. With CSS you can control the color, font and placements of your HTML elements. It can save developers a lot of time since it allows them to control the layout of multiple pages at once.

CSS was created by Håkon Wium Lie back in 1996 and, like all programming languages,  has gone through many changes since. It is a notoriously tricky mark-up language that makes web pages more engaging and accessible to users. At Launch Code After School we learn to code for kids between the ages of 7-14 how to code in CSS along with design principles and provide context for students to create and style beautiful web pages.

Who Uses CSS?

city of austin summer camps

Virtually every site you visit today on the World Wide Web uses CSS. When a developer starts to learn HTML to code websites, CSS tends to be the language they learn next in order to improve on their HTML website and make their finished product look more presentable. CSS has many caveats and tricks that aren’t intuitive to the novice user, which we address and highlight in the curriculum here at Launch.

CSS Tools

Since CSS is such a tricky language, there are a variety of resources and languages out that one can use to help understand the structure and commonly used tricks to build a beautiful site. In fact, many web developers may start with a template made by someone else, or incorporate elements from several different sites. Some of the tools your students will learn to use to help develop their use of CSS include:

  • W3Schools
  • Mozilla Developers Network
  • Colour Picking Tools
  • Stack Overflow

Languages That Compliment

Quite a few languages are used together when creating a beautiful, functional website. Among these languages are:

  • HTML
  • PHP
  • Java Script

When you are able to learn and master multiple coding languages such as the ones listed above, you can start creating beautiful websites with maximum functionality. CSS is the first step in incorporating these languages together.  The next step students will tackle is learning to write JavaScript to modify the other two languages, but a solid foundation in the other two languages is necessary to be able to create amazing and modern sites. CSS is just one of the many cool coding languages we teach here at city of Austin summer camps in Launch Code After School.

CSS Coding Future Outlook

CSS is a coding language that will be used alongside HTML for many years. As technology continues to boom and more businesses are coming online during this digital age, more developers are needed every day. Learning CSS is a great step in the right direction to learning web development.

According to the Bureau of Labour Statistics, the median pay for web developers is currently $67,990 which is currently well above the national average for household income. This means that if you help you kid start learning to code at an early age, they are sure to be well off by the time they graduate and enter the workforce!

Learn CSS in Austin Texas

Now that you know how CSS and other coding languages can benefit your child email us or call us today. Launch After School aims to educate children on CSS and other coding and prepare them for the future. We have weekly after school programs available as well as Austin summer camps.

Buying XL Center Concert Tickets Online

Finding Good Prices When Buying Concert Tickets Online

Buying concert tickets online is a great way to get good seats without having to spend a fortune at the ticket venue. When a popular group or singer goes on tour, everyone wants the best seats for the best price. There is a lot of competition for good tickets online, and it can be hard to track down the best seats for a good price before the most popular concerts sell out. Some of the most common places for buying concert tickets online are ticket brokers, auctions, and classified ads. As with any sales transaction, you need to know what to look for before completing your purchase, but most ticket transactions complete successfully.

Buying Concert Tickets Online from Brokers

Brokers often have the revenue to advertise on the radio, and they know ahead of time which tickets they’ll be carrying and for what prices. By advertising early, brokers attract buyers who are eager to get their hands on floor seats. But ticket brokers don’t always have the best prices. In fact, with the service charges and any tax that may be charged, you can end up paying a lot more than the advertised starting ticket price. And you can almost guarantee that floor seats are going to be highly priced and in great demand.

Buy Concert Tickets Remember that ticket brokers compete with each other to sell concert tickets. When buying concert tickets online make sure to research a few ticket brokers instead of going with the first one. You can get a feel for a broker’s service charges by placing a mock order for another concert. Since most venues allow you to choose your seats and see the prices before you actually buy, you can place a mock order without actually completing it. Write down the differences in service charges and when it comes time to buy your tickets you’ll know which broker offers the best deal on service pricing.

VIP Concert Tickets Classified Ads and Online Auctions

There are a number of online classified ad sites that allow people from all over the world to list their items for sale. Before buying concert tickets online from a ticket brokerage, see if anyone has any tickets for sale online. This tactic works especially well a couple of weeks before a concert when people start realizing they won’t be able to make the show after all and don’t want to be out the money they spent on the tickets. There’s no guarantee you’ll get a good deal, but most people are usually just trying to recoup the money they spent and won’t try to price gouge in an online classified.

Online auctions are a great place to get good seats for a good price. This is because people who just need to unload the tickets for any price will often put them up for auction. If there isn’t a lot of competition for the tickets, you may end up getting floor seats for three-quarters of the original ticket price. While there are no guarantees that buying concert tickets online will give you good seats or a cheaper price, you run a better chance of finding a deal than purchasing straight from the venue.
