Blog: Get More Gym Members With Digital Marketing


The world is becoming more and more digital, so if you want to stay competitive, you need to get your gym up and running on the web. Digital marketing is one of the most effective ways to reach new audiences, build brand awareness and get people through your door. This article will give you some tips that will help you get started with creating digital content for your gym business.

Write motivational copy.

If you want to attract new members, you need to target the people who are likely to join your gym. In order to do this, use copy that inspires them and makes them want to sign up for your gym and start working out. You can use a conversational tone or write like an authority figure (“you should come to our gym because…”). The best way is probably somewhere in-between: be specific about what you offer but don’t sound too stuffy or intimidating.

You’ll also want to include some sort of call-to-action (CTA) at the end of the post—something like “sign up now!” or “get started today!” The key here is relevance: make sure that whatever CTA you use makes sense with what has just been read by your audience. If they’ve just read something motivational, they’re more likely than not going to be ready for action right then and there; if they’ve just been reading about how great it would be if everyone exercised more often because it’s good for their health and well-being, then maybe giving them some time off isn’t as motivating as giving them some information about how easy it is nowadays thanks to technology advancements in fitness devices such as Fitbit trackers which allow people keep track their fitness goals themselves without having the need in paying monthly fees into expensive gym memberships anymore…

Gather content in batches.

  • Batching content* is a way of working smarter, not harder. It saves time and helps you stay organized so you can get more done.
  • How to batch content:*
  • Batch by type.* If you have multiple types of content (blog posts, videos, infographics), group them together in one project or folder that makes sense for your workflow. For example, if your blog posts are all food-related, put them all in a separate folder called “Blog Posts” so they’re easy to find when it’s time to post them on social media or otherwise promote them online.

If you create different types of social media posts but use similar images or graphics across your accounts (for example, a Facebook cover photo and Twitter profile picture), save those images together in one place so they’re easy for anyone who needs access—like the person who manages each account—to find without searching through multiple folders on their computer.

Don’t be intimidated to use Facebook ads.

As you might have guessed from the title, this guide will focus on Facebook ads. You may be wondering whether or not it’s a good idea to advertise on Facebook. Well, in short: yes!

But don’t take our word for it. According to Facebook themselves, 95% of businesses that use their platform see an increase in revenue after running at least one campaign (and 27% see a bump of more than 50%). If that doesn’t convince you, then nothing will!

Focus on your community first, then your features and benefits.

When it comes to marketing your gym, the most important thing is to focus on your community first. Your members are the backbone of your business, and they’re the ones who will spread word of mouth about how great you are. If you can create a strong sense of community at your gym, then people won’t hesitate to recommend it to their friends and family members.

The second most important thing is features and benefits. People want to know what makes you stand out from other gyms in town before they decide whether or not to join up with you. Your website should be packed full of information about all the different classes available at the gym so that visitors know exactly what they’re getting themselves into when they sign up for membership! You’ll also want some pictures showing off the facilities—it’s always good practice just in case someone wants proof that there’s an actual place where all these classes take place!

Be consistent with your posts, message, and branding.

If you want to get more customers, then you need to be consistent with your message and branding. Consistency helps build trust, a following, brand loyalty, and community.

Here’s how it works:

  • If the people in your gym are seeing the same thing over and over again on social media or in their inboxes (and they are), they’ll start to see that you’re an authority in this niche. It makes sense—the more often someone sees something repeated by others they know (or respect), the more likely they are to believe it themselves.
  • People will follow along with what’s happening because they want to stay up-to-date on all things related to fitness training at their gym!
