Tip #1) Build a highly convertible and professional website (mobile first). Take pride in your content – your website is your 24/7 sales person that never calls in sick! When people are researching gyms and/or trainers, they compare websites
Tip #2) Build a strong presence on social media! Social proof is huge with a gym, people want to see you’re posting good content and your members are engaged and passionate about your brand. Instagram, Facebook and YouTube would be among the most popular social platforms for gyms.
Tip #3) Create lots of videos! One idea is to write down questions you are asked during the week and make videos of those things to share on social media! You can also create a weekly email or SMS tips series people can subscribe to and get tips via email or text! Also tell your client’s stories, feature a member of the week
Tip #4) Use a CRM! Keep detailed notes on your clients, send automated emails for holidays, birthdays and more. Check-in & follow up with clients and keep them engaged! This CRM is free for life! https://www.marketing360.com/small-business-crm/
Tip #5) Invest in building a strong online reputation. Give a free month for a review!
Tip #6) Get Listed & Optimize Local Listings & Directories
Tip #7) Get on 1st page of Google for your top keywords (SEO, Maps, Paid Search). Also run brand campaigns for your gym’s name! You can even consider competitor ads (run ads for other gym names)
Tip #8) Run retargeting ads on google display network, YouTube, Facebook and Instagram
Tip #9) Run Social Targeting Ads on Facebook & Instagram in your area. Consider targeting followers of other gyms. Video ads work best, provide value, don’t sell.
Tip #10) Develop a corporate program and offer businesses and organizations nearby a discount! Consider running classes for those groups.
Tip #11) Increase your revenue per client by selling swag, supplements, gear, drinks & snacks, meal plans, etc..
