Attracting new gym members and keeping them is no easy feat. There are plenty of things that can get in the way of an effective marketing strategy, including a limited budget. That’s why our aim is to provide easy-to-implement advice to make growing your gym’s membership an achievable goal.
Over the past couple of weeks our founder, Mike Ives has been getting his feet wet with an exciting Facebook feature that provides a great platform for sharing ‘quick hits’ to our fan base.
Heard of Facebook Live?
If you’re not yet familiar with Facebook Live, it’s a tool that lets anyone with a Facebook Business Page quickly create videos and broadcast them live. Fans of your page can either watch the video at the scheduled broadcast time, or watch it later once it’s posted to the Video section of your page. They can also comment on your video in real time.
Anyway, back to growing your gym’s membership. Mike has started posting weekly videos to share some of the tactics he’s used at CrossFit 782 to successfully grow its membership so far in 2017. With almost 50 new members over the past couple of months, we figure he must be doing something right!
We encourage you to visit our Facebook page and ‘Like’ us; that way you’ll receive notifications as we post future videos. In the meantime though, here are Mike’s first three videos for your enjoyment…
