I recently left a non-profit setting, like the “y” and have began my personal training co. I am faced wtih having to start from scratch. It has its ups and downs. Alot of time, yet not very much business. I am navigating things right now, and not exactly sure where to start. What books have you read? Do you reccommend sitting down, with an ink pen and paper and writing out a list of folks that are in my network?
I see your question was asked over 100 days ago – how are things going? I built my client base from 5 to over 50 within 5 months using a “Healthy Gift” handout that is private labeled for my business. I hand out the gifts to my clients that refer their family & friends. I give the gift for new clients and renewals of current clients, Birthday, holiday, when a client hits a goal, etc. You should see my facebook page light up with great comments of thanks and appreciation when I give out the gift. The gift package is healthy so it fits perfectly with our business. Like I said my clients went from 5 working at Anytime fitness, to now well over 50 including group classes and bootcamps all using this simple gift. Here is the contact info for the guy who does my gift box – he does it special for me, but I’m sure if you drop my name he could do it for you also at a very reasonable price. Call 1-800-223-3083 and ask for Jerard – tell him Brian Gajeski gave you his number.
Good luck, I hope you are doing well.
