As the fitness industry is fast growing, personal training is becoming an extremely competitive market. Most Personal Trainers offer one-to-one and group training in their resident gym/health club. They rely mainly on word of mouth to grow their client-base.
Whilst the Internet offers many ways to self-promote, such as social media and email marketing – SMS is often overlooked.
SMS is a great way to communicate with new, past or existing clients. Whether it is to remind clients about upcoming training sessions or to promote offers & class timetables.
Here are some examples of how Personal Trainers can effectively use SMS for their business:
Why not reward your existing clients by asking them to refer a friend to you.
You could promote the group sessions you provide, to potential clients to help entice them to take part in a session.
Everyone needs a helping hand sometimes. By sending, motivational messages to your clients between training sessions, this could keep them on track.
Offers & Promotions
Do you have an offer or a seasonal discounts to share? This could be for bulk training sessions, or generalised promotions of your additional services, (such as bespoke nutrition plans), send a quick text message to keep your clientele updated.
