Personal Trainer Marketing Ideas 1-10

  1. Make sure your personal trainer website is listed on Google local business. This will give you the best change of getting on page one for a search like “personal trainer your-town”
  2. Email your past clients and reconnect with them and see if you can get them to come back. A personal letter or phone call is even better.
  3. Get out from behind your laptop and social media and start networking with people who are potential clients.
  4. Ask your current clients for referrals.
  5. Offer everyone who visits your website a trial or a free consultations
  6. Consider using Google Adwords to drive more traffic to your website.
  7. Make sure your website talks about who you help and how you help them. Make the visitor the hero, not the personal trainer.
  8. Install a facebook tracking pixel on your website so that you can re-target site visitors with ads of they don't buy from the 1st visit (and most people won't)
  9. Be crystal clear on who you help. Dont be a jack of all trades personal trainer. Be a specialist.
  10. Consider a joint venture agreement with a local physio or sports massage business.

“For me one of the biggest things has been getting from behind the laptop. I've often said I'm going ‘fishing' when I've gone out to big events in the area, local restaurants & bars etc and people always ask questions, watch what I've been eating/drinking etc. Even my midwife has signed up with me. 2) Client referrals 3)Visiting businesses and schools and checking in. 4) Seminars”
