Marketing strategies for gyms

Start to design

If you run or work in a gym, there are several strategies to bear in mind before developing its action and communication plan. In this article, we define the four main marketing strategies for gyms and other fitness businesses as well as offering some templates to get started.

When you decide to open a gym for the first time, its new and modern facilities or equipment get the attention of local citizens who, with the novelty, may become potential users. However, after a few months, the hype goes down, and other fitness businesses may appear. Then, how can you keep getting new customers?

 

Like all companies, having a good marketing plan and strategy is crucial when keeping the same customers' rate as well as keeping with its loyalty and reputation. Therefore, we invite you to continue reading this article. It won't take you more than 4 minutes!

First of all...

When implementing a marketing strategy for any gym, it's vital to know the target audience: their motivations, interests, and the main reasons why they would go to the gym. You will probably find more than one possible segment, so keep the most important ones in mind. 

Also, a study of the main competitors is something necessary too. Investigate which sports centers are closest to yours and which kind of promotions and marketing they carry out.

 

Stay up to date with the gyms sector. Knowing the latest trends in the fitness field and applying them in your establishment would make your users feel comfortable by using your facilities as they will find a purpose to do so. At the same, it would enable you to stay ahead of the competitors

4 Marketing strategies for gyms

1. A good website

A visual and intuitive website is a basic element. Share different training plans, schedules, master classes, products or extra services. Share also your staff information or the values you want to convey about your company to make the user feel closer to you. Also, make an online portal in which users can consult activities or monitor their training program.

For the non-users, create an informative part where they can know more about your club. Invite them to register and get their contact information to be able to send personalized offers.

 

Invest in a good website developer who will make a proper attractive, and modern design included all personalized elements desired. Otherwise, if you prefer to try it yourself, we recommend using programs such as Wix or WordPress with pre-established templates.

2. Create a blog

Having a blog where you can share information relevant to the fitness world can give you more customers than you think. It will serve to share the recent news of the most important events that take place in your gym or to give advice on fitness or nutrition. In addition, your website rank among the top search engines will improve with the blog, so your company will reach more users easily.

   

 

3. Social Networking

It's essential to have a presence in at least some of the main social networks. We say "at least one" since it's preferable to have a well-cared profile in a single social platform rather than having careless profiles in all of them. 

If you decide to use YouTube, share personal training or even recorded classes from your centre, always with the consent of the participants. On social networks such as Instagram or Facebook, share motivational quotes, workouts or explanations of exercises, always alternating pictures with videos. Don't forget to include your logo at all times to prevent others from using those photos without your permission.

4. Promotions and banners

They're something fundamental as they incite future customers to decide to use your facilities over others'. Giving a free ticket to try the gym services or giving a first free tuition fee won't leave anyone indifferent. Of course, be original and unique with the promotion design!
