Roll In New Customers
The Kids Skate Free (KSF) program provides families with an easy way to get out and enjoy healthy physical activity. With Kids Skate Free, you can create a consistent cycle of foot traffic that keeps your skating centers as an important part of the local community.
The Kids Skate Free program is offered through the Roller Skating Association International (RSA) and is included with the annual RSA membership fee. Rinks that are not RSA members can also participate by paying an annual participation fee. Given the many benefits of RSA membership, joining the RSA is an attractive choice for many rinks.
The Kids Skate Free program leverages the Hownd® foot traffic generation platform to provide an easy-to-use experience that drives more visitors through your doors.
While you could limit your use of Hownd to the Kids Skate Free program, its full set of features can help drive even more of the sustainable foot traffic you need to grow. With web, email, social, mobile and Wi-Fi technologies, Hownd has helped thousands of merchants generate millions in new profitable revenue. Best of all, you can get started quickly with a Results-Delivered Pricing™ model that means you only pay when you receive real business value!
Get Started Quickly with Zero Risk
It’s easy! All we need are basic details about your rink, such as name, location, and special program hours in order to launch your Kids Skate Free promotion. And, if you choose to use other Hownd features, our Results-Delivered Pricing model means you only pay when the platform brings you customers. You have nothing to lose and everything to gain.
Enjoy Effortless Foot Traffic
Hownd is an effortless, fully automated, best practices platform that drives repeat, predictable and sustainable foot traffic. After you upload your existing customer list and add the popup to your website, we’ll take it from there. Hownd will create and launch targeted promotions through multiple channels to bring more visitors through your doors.
Special Kids Skate Free Marketing Materials
Joining the Kids Skate Free program provides valuable exposure to your rink. Included is a listing on the kidsskatefree.com website, a promotional audio spot, a full-color flyer, a Kids Skate Free slide show, and a full-color parent’s brochure. Additional marketing materials such as postcards and posters are also available for purchase from the RSA.
