Deciding to open your own gym can be both exciting and intimidating. Starting things from the ground up will take a lot of time, dedication, and patience. With gym franchises being all over in every major city it is hard to compete with the fact that they are so well recognized. What you’ve got to remember is that your small business will allow you to have control over more aspects of your gym. With deciding on all aspects of your gym you also get to distribute the way that money is distributed. Have you considered how much marketing will weigh in on the amount of traffic that you will be receiving?
Unless you have chosen one of the busiest intersections in the city to open your new place you may have to focus some attention, and spending, on a little bit of marketing. Your budget & strategy will determine the way you may want to approach this new tactic. There are a variety of ways to begin promoting your gym. Paying for ads in newspapers, using social media (as a free alternative), creating a commercial, or even going a bit more old school & creating flyers to hand out around the surrounding neighborhood.
Although these are all great and classic ways to promote your business going in a different direction may be a smart way to go. A more tangible marketing strategy can be a smart way to get your name out there. You can use this method to encourage people into actually coming in and taking a look around in your new establishment. Customizing a variety of products with your logo is easy. Figuring out which would better work for your new marketing can be the slightly more difficult part.
Custom products with your logo can be used as a selling item or they can also be used creatively to draw in a new crowd. Setting up your own section with customized merchandise items can be a great promotional tool. Your name on anything like custom water bottles of your choice, duffle bags, lanyards, wrist/head sweatbands are all great items to add to your stock of items you will keep in store.
The items mentioned before along with key-chains, stickers and elastic hair/headbands can all be used as a promotional item for people to come to your store. Whether you host a grand opening event and implement a raffle of sorts for whomever may attend or use the products as a giveaway item to anyone who comes to your shop in general then this can be a fantastic way to leave them with a souvenir of your company. Products such as these are sure to leave them with a good taste of what you’re new gym is all about.
