I know a similar question was asked previously but what are some good websites for trainers?
Specifically like ideafit, Ptonthenet, trainerspace...
I am looking for ones that will allow me to create a profile for others to see. Or ones similar to Ptonthenet that have a ton of info. Of course ones like ideafit that allow for both. Sorry for repeat question. Thanks for any help!
I posted this answer to a previous question like yours:
"I think IDEAFIT's personal trainer website has ease of navigation with alot of information to upload to promote any personal trainer".
Its functional and easy to navigate
You can make changes without any fees
You can send a monthly newsletter to your clients
Upload Clients Success Stories
Link to your Twitter
Link to your Facebook
Send "Challenges" to your clients
Post and answer questions
Upload your monthly schedule, classes and events in your calendar
Post all your locations/addresses where you teach and add a map
List all your certifications, rates and accomplishments
Start a blog
Receive Reviews and Comments from your clients
Monitor your sites "hits"...visits
Whew...did I leave out anything?
I shut down my website (created through Sitecube), at the beginning of the year becasue of IDEAFIT.
I have had greater success and more site hits than my other personal website by using IDEAFIT.
Wishing You Great Success!
the only professional one that I can think of is 'LinkedIn'.
I am on LinkedIn and IDEAfit.com., with lead results from IDEA. LinkedIn is good for networking like the IDEA Answers.
Take care and good luck to you.
just one additional thing: while I like IDEA FitnessConnect (obviously) I still operate my own web site and would not dream of taking it down. I am able to both determine content and layout, and I can provide a lot more information there than I can here at this site. The annual cost of operating a web site are not high, and the analytics (I use google) give me a good window into the web site usage so I can make sure that those pages that are viewed the most often are always spiffy and up to date.
Wish you success.
I'd also suggest non-trainer sites such as angies or thumbtack to get your name out.
What I find helpful is to decide which website features you need or would like and then try to visualize if/how those features might appear in a template website (like IDEA's) that you visit. I've found that what's most important is ease of use and functionality.
Several of these authors provide additional links to their monthly research reviews. Absolutely worth the cost.
