As our communities continue participating in social-distancing through the COVID-19 outbreak, your business still has the opportunity to thrive! And 97 Display can help you with these virtual training tools.
We understand that providing online content to your clients/students during this time can seem daunting. But don’t worry! Below are step-by-step guides and resources on how to make the best of Virtual Training and keep your members interested and active!
One way to keep your clients engaged and still feel a sense of community is to host weekly classes via Zoom. Zoom is a remote conferencing service that combines video conferencing, online meetings, and chat. You can set recurring class times and lead your workouts/classes for students to join in on from the comfort of their own home.
Check out the helpful tutorial video below on how to set up a Zoom meeting.
Once you download Zoom and set recurring class times, you will need a place on your website for clients to access your videos. All 97 Display sites offer a password-protected Members Only portal, where your clients can log in and participate in classes.
When it is time to actually host your class, make sure you have good lighting and your camera and microphone are clear and working. You’re good to go!
What you need:
Staying active on social media platforms is a great way to keep your clients engaged and communicating. We suggest making a private Facebook group for just your members. This is where you can communicate Zoom class times (and how to access it), get feedback on your virtual classes, and post daily encouragement/workouts. This will create an online community that your members will love!
Facebook also has a “live video” feature. You can live stream online workouts/classes or use this as a way to update your members. Facebook also automatically saves these videos for clients to go back and watch later.
You can also get creative with eye-catching social media graphics with Canva. Canva is a graphic design platform that allows users to create social media graphics, presentations, posters, and other visual content. It is available on web and mobile and integrates millions of images, fonts, templates, and illustrations. This software is very user-friendly and free!
What you need:
Email is another great tool to keep your members up-to-date on new services and announcements. Martial Arts and Fitness business owners are seeing great success sending regular email reminders and staying in touch with their communities.
For those interested in an automated solution to email contact, 97 Display is proud to offer a new email drip campaign product called Client Keeper. This marketing campaign will periodically send out pre-written emails to your current members.
Client Keeper is an easy way to know that your current members are in the loop and engaged without lifting a finger! It’s the best way for you to continue to provide value to your members even if they miss a class on occasion. This email automation provides how-tos, at-home health tips, and more!
