June 26, 2012 by  Filed under: Advertising 

Now that your gym centre is finally done, you have all kinds of equipment in place, and you hired skilled and professional trainers, it’s time to brainstorm about the different gym promotions that are needed in order for your fitness centre to be known. You need not only appealing or old-fashioned strategies. We are living in a modern world where most people have probably seen all the types of advertising there is. So you must also come up with fresh and effective ideas to promote your programs and services. Some gyms have a lot of members during its first few months but it eventually declines because of the lack of proper marketing strategies. You need to understand that in business, customers come and go. As customers decrease, so does your profit. That’s why you should find a way to keep them coming. You should have a regular number of new members every month to cope up with all of your expenses, and maintaining your gym. You may need to spend extra money for this but it is necessary in order for you to make money. That is how businesses work. Think about these promotional ideas for your fitness club.

First you need to start locally. Have your club advertised on local radios, TV, newspapers, and billboard ads. Initiate some promos such as discounts to those who can bring their friend along or refer your gym to anyone. You can also give some special freebies or raffles during special holidays. You can also give 50% off on new members and any other gym promotions you can think of. You can also initiate activities such a “Fun Run” to support a cause. This can be a great initiative to get the word out there about your fitness centre. You can also ask a survey from your current members about the perks that they would like to be included in your gym. If they are satisfied with your services, they will stay and more people will come along as well. And then you can take this idea online. Create a website solely for your business. It would be better if you can find a professional to do it. Then make a personalised Facebook Fan page. This would be a fun way to connect to your members and get likes from their friends. This can be the start of something big for your fitness club.

Never underestimate the power of online media. Word can spread quickly over the internet and it might be what your business needs. Don’t think twice to make use of it for business promotions. Although this might be a simply task, this has the potential to gain more customers and get more income. But remember, it still depends on how effective your fitness marketing strategies are.
