Your Marketing, "Before"
In the past, gyms and fitness centers relied on traditional channels for marketing and promoting their venues; however, the results from competing via television and radio commercials, direct mail, email and billboards were typically less than impressive, if not downright underwhelming. Email open rates are a disappointing 22%; TV and radio ads can cost thousands of dollars and are often perceived as annoying disruptions to a viewer or listener’s program; direct mail has the lowest performance rate of them all, with a measly 2-5% open rate. In today’s hectic culture, modernizing your marketing is essential for your gym or fitness center; that means reaching your prospects and customers in a way that forges a direct connection, earns their trust, all via a form of communication that is comfortable and familiar.
