Helpful tips to understand how On-Demand Activities can work for your business

What types of content should I offer as On-Demand?

Pre-recorded videos, printable worksheets, do-it-yourself project instructions or recipes are examples of popular on-demand content. Also seasonal content related to upcoming holidays, such as Halloween, Thanksgiving, Winter, Valentine’s Day, etc.

Why should I offer On-Demand activities?

On-demand activities are an easy way for families to discover your business because there aren’t any scheduling issues. In our parent survey, flexibility and independent learning are two of the top priorities parents seek when shopping for activities.

On-demand activities can help promote your business year-round.

Any tips on how to create On-Demand Videos?

  • To produce a high-quality video that is optimized for self-paced learning, it is worth the time investment to write out a script and plan out how you will record the audio and visual components. 
  • For a hands-on class, you may want to record the demonstration from two different angles, perhaps from the top and the side view. Then record a voiceover that explains what you are doing. 
  • For a class where you are sharing your computer screen, you can record yourself first with the camera on you. Then playback your recording as you record your screen.

How can I get more families to try out my On-Demand activities?

Use the Activity Name to draw attention. Think about adding a suggested time frame to your on-demand listing, example: “15-Minute Math Exercises.” Use keywords popular keywords in your activity name + “On-Demand“, example: “Intro to Roblox Coding (On-Demand)”
