I haven’t found one site to be all that great for posting our class schedule. Craigslist, IDEA fitnessconnect, community e-bulletin boards, real bulletin boards, etc. have all been up and down for exposure. I will get three new people from one of these in a week and nothing for a month. Right now I am running some radio ads again as we are in small slump with enrollment. But it has always been up and down anyway.
One other option, within Facebook, is to reach out to groups (other than your own FB page if you have one). For example, I do some work community work with a local early childhood PTA and have met many moms who are eager to start a new fitness program.
There are also local FB home groups for selling items (may be invite only–but you can find someone who will invite you to become a member of the group). Some of them allow business owners to advertise once or twice a week. Just a thought, because you may get some new participants that way by posting your schedule.
Hi Michelle – have you considered paid adverts? They can then be a little more targeted. For example, a particular geographical region, age group, or gender.
The most widely know is Google Ads: https://www.google.com/adsense/start/
