THE PALFISH READING APP: ADVANCED

So you already know how to record and listen to books on the Palfish Reading App, but what other features of this app can we use to further increase our bookings and attract potential students? Read on to find out!

We are going to be discussing 2 major things we can use on the Palfish Reading App to greatly increase our bookings, these are:

  • GOOD WORKS

  • MOMENTS

FIND STUDENTS BOOKS

A key way to increase bookings and be seen by more students is to check out THEIR books! Thousands of chinese students use this App every day to practice their English and record books, many of them have not even begun learning English with an OKC teacher yet! So this is an excellent way to find new students and encourage them in their English learning journey.

To find these students, choose any book from the Book Library and then in the top right corner you will see a tab that says 'Good Works'!

This is where you will find hundreds of recordings of books from students.

GOOD WORKS

Now you will see a list of students names, and at the top, three tabs one that says 'Popular' which is the one you will be in, 'Ranking', and then the one we want to focus on 'Latest'. Click on the 'Latest' tab.

This is where you will find all of the most recent recordings for that specific book! This is perfect as it means all these students have recently been active on the Palfish Reading App, and are ready to learn English!

Then you can go ahead and choose any student from the list to listen to their book and recording and give them some encouragment!

palfish reading app listen like comment

LISTEN, LIKE, COMMENT, FOLLOW, REPEAT

You will then be able to listen to the book, and then like their work by clicking the Thumbs Up! Try leaving some comments when you think a student has done well, and use lots of emojis! Be encouraging, and complimentary!

You can also choose to follow that student. The more students you follow, the more students can follow you back and discover what a wonderful teacher you are!

If you are looking to increase your bookings, one of the most fool-proof ways to do so is simply to listen to, like, and comment on lots of students books on the Reading App! It's an excellent way to reach out and publicise yourself as a teacher. So by spending even just 5-10 minutes a day doing this, you will be sure to see an increase in your classes and trials.

One word of caution however, don't go too crazy with it all, and don't copy and paste the same comment onto every students work, otherwise it can become more like spam than encouragement, and make us appear very impersonal or unprofessional! We want to attract new students, but we still want to make it personal and encouraging! ^-^

PALFISH READING APP MOMENTS

The next way we are going to discuss that can help us to attract new students is this:

The Moments Section! (Please refer to the first picture in this blog post to find out how to locate the Moments section from the Reading App home page!)

Students will post things here that you will not be able to see or access from the Teachers app, so it's a great way to discover more students!

Similar to the Good Works section, here in the Moments section you can Like students moments, Comment on them, and Follow the student themselves!

You can also see how many Likes and Comments a student has. Try to find students who have received less amounts of likes and comments as these are the ones who will be most in need some encouragement, and you are more likely to be noticed by them when liking and commenting.

You can also post your own moments here by clicking the '+' button, and this function works basically the same as it does on the Reading App.

By regularly spending just 5-10 minutes interacting with students and moments here, we can attract more potential students and of course, more bookings!

CONSISTENCY IS KEY

Of course, being consistent with all these ways is the most important way to get more work with Palfish. We need to have a full presence, so we can be seen by as many potential students and parents as possible! So don't just implement these tips for a day, do it daily, for as long as it takes to get the results you want!

You will soon find that your schedule will be full of lovely students, and all your hard work and effort will have paid off (and you won't have to spend so much time doing all these things!)

You can do it!
