Going Digital: Guest Waivers

Posted by Calley Belcher on Mar 17, 2017 12:33:40 PM


Technology doesn’t fix everything, sometimes it can even make things more complicated. But, in the case of collecting data and storing it, technology takes the cake (or protein powder for you gym junkies).

For example, when someone comes into your gym or studio, are you having them fill out a form on a sheet of paper? If so, you have probably dealt with the headache that is lost information, bad handwriting, or a disorganized filing system. Then it comes to having to enter the data manually which leaves room for error and uses up valuable time. Instead of continuing to deal with paper forms, put a form on an iPad or a laptop and use that as your guest waiver. This will not only eliminate the issues mentioned above, but it also allows you to transfer information to a sales system with ease.

Benefits of Using a Digital Guest Waiver:

Why Texting Works For Gyms and Studios

Posted by Calley Belcher on Jan 12, 2017 10:50:53 AM

As a salesperson, you understand the value of each and every contact method. Email is less invasive and a little more casual. Phone calls give you the opportunity to grab someone’s attention and know they are hearing you and your message. So where does texting fit in? Right in the middle. Texting is the perfect middle lane between a passive email and a potentially invasive phone call. Each contact method has their respective time and place, but if you aren’t using texting as an option, you are leaving money on the table.
