Do you have a website? If not then, you really want to consider getting one. We all know word of mouth is the best advertising for getting clients. There's nothing like having a someone refer business to you. But imagine if after a person received the referral they could immediately go and find out about you via your website! They could perhaps, learn about your training services, see products and programs you offer, see videos of you in action and more!
A great way to get more clients is to have a website that is available for your clients and potential clients to check out 24 hours a day, 7 days a week! This will surely help potential clients make up their minds to take their friends advice to come see you!
Investing in a Website
If you have the budget, you can have a website created for a few hundred bucks. If you don't have that kind of budget, there are also some great low cost do-it-yourself sites that make it easy to set up a good looking website and add all the bells and whistles you need to make money with it. You can try Homestead websites free for 30 days to see if it's right for you! Click here:
Remember this is your business and any money you spend is an investment. Sometimes you will need to spend a little more to get exactly what you want. It only makes sense to do it right the first time, instead of wasting time and money with a website that is not effective. My advice is, if you can not create a good looking website that will make you money, let the pro's do it.
Choosing a Domain Name for Your Website
With having a website you will want to have a domain name. That's your own www.XXXX.com address. Make it catchy, but not too long and relate to what you do. For example, www.Healthybody.com is good and catchy. A name like www.MikesPersonalTrainingandNutritionSite.com may be a little too long. The more catchy and shorter it is, the easier people can remember it.
If you are good with website design and search engine optimization then going for a domain name that will help you rank in search in engines is always good. This subject really requires a post of it's own. However, if you are working with a web master ask them about choosing the right domain for your website. If you need more help go to the FitPro Marketing Store from the Navigation bar on this site, you can get your site built for you with everything you need to be successful.
If you're in need of a domain name I highly recommend getting one through Godaddy, I use them for all my web needs! check them out here:
Let Everyone Know About Your Website
Having a website gives you more of a professional image and put's you one step ahead of the rest. Make sure you include your website on your business cards, flyer's and brochures. You can even post it somewhere in your gym or studio to let folks know there is a website they can give to people they want to refer or go to if they want to purchase other fitness programs or products!
