Looking for an easy, inexpensive way to spread the word about your school — and bring in new, excited white belts?
Say hello 🖐 to the Valentine’s Day Card Campaign.
Distributing Valentine’s Day cards that double as a voucher for a free month of martial arts lessons is an extremely effective way to introduce elementary-aged students to your children’s martial arts program.
How exactly does the campaign work?
It starts with you. You, the business owner, print out Valentine’s Day cards for your martial arts students to give to their classmates on Monday, February 14, 2022, Valentine’s Day.
And, it’s worth it!
With a little time and effort — and less than $200 — you’ll make your students, parents of students, and your business happy.
Your students will be excited to pass the cards out to their classmates and let their friends know they’re a martial artist.
Parents of your students will love you for it … you’re saving them time by providing Valentine’s Day cards (one less thing for them to pick up at the store!) AND you’re saving parents $.
Last, but not least, your business will love you for running this campaign as it’s PROVEN to generate interest and result in new student enrollments.
Follow these steps to get your Valentine’s Day Card Campaign underway right away:
1. Member Solutions clients: head to the Marketing Materials library for an already-designed Valentine’s Day card. There, you’ll be able to download the 4 x 6, full-color Valentine’s Day card and customize it with your logo, QR code, and business information.
Not a Member Solutions client? With a bit more time and effort, you can use a simple design program like Canva to create your own Valentine’s Day card. Typical card size is either 3 x 4.5 inches or 4 x 6 inches.
2. Next, determine your print quantity. Since the average school class size is 25 students, we recommend getting 30 cards printed for each of your martial arts students. For example, if you have 50 martial arts students, you’d get 1,500 Valentine’s Day cards printed.

You’ll need to place your printing order for your Valentine’s Day cards as soon as possible as you’ll want the Valentine’s Day cards to be delivered to you no later than by Monday, February 7. That way you can pass out the packs of cards to your students during classes throughout the week of February 7 and your students will have the cards ready to pass out to their classmates on Valentine’s Day, Monday, February 14.
Make the campaign EXTRA SPECIAL with these Pro Tips
◾ Make it easy for students and parents to transport the packs of cards. Head to your local dollar store to pick up Valentine’s Day-themed gift bags to hold each pack of 30 cards.
◾ Children will be getting TONS of Valentine’s Day cards on Valentine’s Day. To make sure your cards stand out, attach a low-cost candy, like a lollipop, to each card. Or, create bags of candy and place the card inside each bag.
◾ Have some bags of 10-15 cards ready in case middle school-aged students would like to share the cards with a few special friends in their lives as well.
And that’s it! With a little time and effort, and for less than $200, you’ve now made your way into the school system and made your students’ Valentine’s Day extra exciting and special.
Happy Valentine’s Day!
