I am creating an online website for fitness classes and was wondering if anyone had ideas that have worked to gather potential clients? I can do the local marketing but I want to make sure I work on many locations outside of my market seeing how online will be a very specific demographic. Any insights, ideas would be gratefully appreciated!
While there are many options for marketing, I'll have to say that the best option for marketing is social media! Make sure you have a solid presence on Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter, Google Plus, Pinterest, and even Idea Fit. The larger your presence, the better. Social media also helps in terms of building up search engine optimization, which can help clients find you easier through websites such as google and bing. Most importantly, it will help expand your market faster and more efficiently than any other marketing method. If you have any more question feel free to ask!
From there I suggest meetups.com, mindbody.com, Jills list to name a few.
I agree with Ron. Social media is free and in my opinion, the best way to build your online presence. I would also add Instagram to the list if your demographic includes the younger crowd. My niece is 15 and she said Instagram is the "new Facebook". Hope this helps! Good luck.
