What are some good ways to bring in more clients?
I'm starting out on my own at a yoga and fitness studio and have a couple clients to start with. I know that i should pick up some clients through the facility itself but I was wondering if anyone had some ways that they advertised or anything to bring more people in.
Participate in Health fairs, Chamber of Commerce events, post flyers at your local schools, doctors offices, write fitness columns for the local paper, get t shirts made up with your logo and wear them out always.
Facebook is great too
I hope that this helps! Good luck!

Do some volunteering and join a business group to get your name out there; the word of mouth should get you noticed. Offer a discount to current clients for referrals.
Be sure you have business cards and a short bio available for those you talk to. Practice a quick, two or three sentences, that tell people who you are and what you offer, when they ask you what you do. You never know when you'll meet a new client, so always have business cards ready.
Treat all your current clients like rock stars and they'll be your best advertising!
