Tip #5 Incentives for Referrals

  • Referral Incentives - Offer your current clients a free class, workshop or other prize for new clients that sign up.  The easiest way to get a new client is by asking existing clients to bring a friend(s).  It can take a lot of courage for someone to try a new gym or fitness class so having a friend who invites them makes it easier for them to come see what you offer.  Be sure to make the guests feel welcome, get their contact information and offer a bonus for the guests to sign-up the same day for future classes or workshops.  Be sure to follow up with them by phone, e-mail or text to answer any questions or concerns they might be too shy to mention in person.  Do this is a timely manner.  Don't forget where that referral came from...make sure to follow through and reward the folks who bring guests even if guests don't sign up the first day.
