But as with all sh!t shows, there’s an opportunity for success…
As a motivated fitness entrepreneur you have kept your community together. You have adapted to online… workouts, classes, Q&A’s, nutritional programs, and even coffee mornings!
Whilst you have grappelled with new technology and learned to love (or hate) the camera, you have kept your businesses going. These new skills will serve you well for the rest of this year and will be an additional revenue stream for the future.
No longer constrained by your local area, you can now appeal to a broader area, help more people, and focus on delivering your speciality to your target market.
From our most successful customers, we have seen those with the greatest engagement, and growth, follow these 5 basic rules:
1. Be confident
Even though you may stand in front of your classes every day without a problem, the moment you go online… you fall over your words, forget what you’re saying, forget to check your equipment, and panic. You’re not alone, the camera can be intimidating, but remember, you are the boss. Check your equipment before you start your class, plan your classes in advance, and deliver with confidence.
2. Be there
You’ve always started your classes on time, and your members always turned up 15 minutes early to the studio. Going online is no different. Your members may get a little distracted at home, so it’s always an idea to send a reminder a few minutes before the class starts. With GO Retrieve your members receive automated push notifications 15 minutes before class. This focuses your members and gets them ready. Now it’s up to you to start on time, every time.
3. Clear your space
If you’re not streaming your classes from your studio then make sure you have plenty of space around you. Declutter your area and give yourself more room than you think you need. Remove any background distractions and clear your mind.
4. The perfect class
Make sure your audio and video quality is perfect, your members will thank you for it. There’s nothing more distracting than rubbish audio or an imperfect picture. In this video, we show you how to rectify both.
Whether you interact throughout your class or provide a Q&A at the end, make sure your number one rule is to interact. This is where you are different from all those YouTubers and influencers, you are there for your members… so make sure you speak with them.
So, whether you’re Zooming your way into your members living rooms, or GO Retrieving direct to your custom branded App, remember… what you do today may serve you well in the future.
If you’re not doing this,
