I am an Independent Trainer working out of a gym for over 2 years. I offer free first session, package specials, do different events (free seminars on working abs, cardio, fitness assessments etc), I have a Facebook fan page, offer Bootcamps and do a monthly newsletter. It’s been a slow go and I need to increase my income. Do you have any other suggestions
Janet said it well!!! Referrals are the best way to go!!! It builds your credibility instantly and lowers the barrier of entry when singing up with you. You have to condition your clients from the start. Make it a win win situation as you help them achieve their fitness goals they can help you with your goal to help many people by referring their friends, family and co workers. Make them write down the name of 5 people right on the spot.
You can even make it fun and competitive for your current clients. Have a contest! Whoever summits the most during a month wins a prize. The prize can be anything, but make it a good one!!!
Your definitely on the right track! Continue working hard and try out these few tips. They’re easy to do and the best part about it is they don’t cost one red cent, only more $ in your pocket!
