3 Ways to Know if a Member is About to Cancel

Posted by Calley Belcher on Jul 18, 2017 2:40:47 PM

No, we (unfortunately) can’t see the future, but we do have the power of reading data, and the data shows that there are signs pointing to when a member is going to cancel.

Cancellations are a struggle for every fitness business owner, especially those with short term agreements who see high turnover. Knowing the signs that lead to cancellations will help you increase retention and decrease the number of members you lose each month.

How to Get Cancelled Members Back

Posted by Calley Belcher on Jun 16, 2017 4:13:07 PM

Cancelled clients are bound to happen. It’s unfortunate and can sometimes cause quite a headache for gym and studio owners. But what if you could make up for those headaches by getting your cancelled members back? Although not always the case, many people cancel based on reasons that have nothing to do with a negative impact the business had on them. It could simply be they didn’t use their membership enough, it wasn’t the right time financially, they were moving, or other personal reasons.

Encouraging Salespeople The Right Way

Posted by Calley Belcher on Jun 8, 2017 2:40:28 PM

“Selling should be fun!” How many times have we heard this? And although it’s partially true, it’s not always that way. Some days are slow, others are so busy you can’t keep up, and burnout happens to the best of us. When it comes to selling, each prospect should get the highest level of treatment, which can be hard when you have salespeople who aren’t fully invested every single day. So how do you keep the salespeople in your fitness business fresh, excited, and ready to take on every prospect that comes their way?

It starts with tapping into the true nature of a salesperson. Competition is a driving factor in the way salespeople think, and when you harness that drive and use it to create a more fun, exciting work environment, you inherently see higher sales numbers. When it comes to sales, happy employees = more output = more memberships sold. But how can you really harness the power of a sales person’s natural competitiveness? Start an ongoing, monthly (or whatever works best for you) sales competition!

Lead Nurturing: The Process of Making the Sale

Posted by Calley Belcher on Mar 28, 2017 11:33:10 AM

We all get lucky every now and then, a lead walks in the door ready to buy a membership or purchase classes no matter the cost or what’s included. Wouldn’t it be a dream if all leads were that way? Sigh. But, since we live in reality and understand the ins-and-outs of the health and fitness world, we know it can take more ground work to turn a lead into a member.

So what is the easiest way to turn a lead into a member? That is the million dollar question. Although some people may give you a magical one sentence answer, the honest answer is that it involves a mix of different communication methods, and finding the ones that work for you.

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:
