I’m launching my own in-home based personal training business in April. The target clientele is located in Manhattan NY and I’m currently looking for a good online marketing agency which would market my services at a reasonable price. I’ve read horrible reviews about most of those companies, so I am wondering if any of you have had any experience working with them?
Pensa Media has a great reputation in the Internet Marketing Services domain, owing to years of experience. However, its you who has the complete product knowledge and the conviction to convince. There are myriad tools and agencies to look after the marketing but eventually its you, who will have to take up the mantle.
Hey everyone! Thank you for your answers and help. However, I already have all those marketing strategies in mind (networking, fliers, community and health fairs), but I also want my website to be on the first page of Google. I know that in a competitive market like NYC it is not easy and that’s why I’m looking for the right company or person to get me there. I understand that SEO optimization is an ongoing process and most companies or web designers ask for a monthly fee, which I am willing to pay, provided I get results. So, if anyone has worked with a good web design and online marketing company, please share 🙂 Thank you
All of the above have great answers. I use one additional approach. I read as much as I can about the crowd I am trying to target. You do not have to be a psychologist to use psychology. Since there is much competition in personal training, try to find a quality that will draw them to you. It is a strategy used in war but, it works in business too. As you learn more about your clients, adjust your written cards and flyers to reflect this. Hope this and the additional information from the others helps. Good luck. Brian Rozzi.
I would start marketing right now by taking a look at your 6 block radius and get flyers out, speak to corporations about possibly coming in and talking to their employees about your services, go to local theaters, libraries, coffee shops etc and post your cards/flyers.
YELP is also a way to go once you get established.
