Top Tips From The Show


Show 21 – Robbie Kellman Baxter reminded us – From the moment of sign up you want them to have the experience you know works to build that behavior.
Having the right person introduce a new member is way more important than giving lots of people tours through your facility – its about creating an experience.

Show 27 – Christine Thalwitz said – Before embarking on a charity campaign, ensure the campaign forms part of your company’s core values. Does it resonate with your audience, is there an organic tie in?
Consider, is this partnership going to stand out in your marketplace? Make sure you pick a great partner, a great charity, tell stories, get actively involved in the charity you are supporting.

Show 31 – Casey Conrad said: If you can get your trainers to embrace the concept that selling is nothing more than education plus motivation, then you will have a much easier time getting them to earn a customers business.

Show 33 Michelle Segar says – The wrong ‘why’s’ put people on a path of unstable controlling motivation, it leads people to feel like exercise is a chore.
Our job is to figure out what hasn’t worked and why, and help people develop a solution tailored to who they are.
