I am working on adding additional clients to my business. I am going to approach some fitness equipment stores to see if we can get an agreement. My proposal to the fitness stores would be this: They sell a piece of cardio equipment, free weights, home gyms, etc. They notify their customer that with their purchase they get a free consulting and workout with a personal trainer (me). I see this as beneficial to both parties as they can give their customers something different than other stores are currently doing and I get potential leads. Is there something I might be missing in this effort? And is there a certain way you would approach the stores on this?
Hello Trent Barga,
Become a regular customer before requesting something from them. I like to patronize several businesses to share the wealth. Offering a few choices to a client is always better than one.
Attending business group meetings lets the real you show through so they will be comfortable buying from you.
I was told to leave my business cards at a gym supply store when I purchased equipment from them. Of course, I have their business cards passed out, as well.
I believe you have a good idea, to make sure the client uses the purchase properly.
