If you’re like most business owners, you’re constantly looking for ways to optimize your time and save a few hours on the boring business stuff and put your focus where it matters most. That shouldn’t be any different for gym and studio owners who started their businesses to coach and train people and not sift through daily business tasks. What’s the solution to getting your time back? Automation. And it’s simpler than you may think.
What You Need to Know About Automation
Unfortunately the Arbox fitness management platform isn’t set up to open the doors of your gym or studio, handle cleaning or lock up at the end of the day. Maybe sometime in the future we’ll get there, but for now, we’ll focus on automating many aspects of your daily and weekly business operations.
In the meantime, you can get to know the different ways that you can automate various aspects of your business.
Making Life Easier For You
The two main areas to automate the operations within your fitness business are tasks (which are more internal to you and your staff) and interactions with your members.
Efficiently handling your daily tasks is essential to the ongoing success of your business. Many different tasks that you’ll encounter actually cross over into correspondence with your members so automating that process can really free up a lot of time every day.
Utilizing Automation Features
Let’s take a look at some of the things you can automate within the Arbox system.
If your to-do list seems to be getting longer every week, it’s time to start automating some of those tasks. You can stay on top of charging members for a membership renewal or switching a trial member to a full-paying member. You can also set automated tasks for your staff members.
Veteran fitness business owners will know this all too well, but for those who are new to this line of work you may not know that sending messages to members comes up way more than you might think. In fact, if you’re not sending messages to your members on a regular basis that’s a problem (and likely a reason why they’re not renewing their memberships).
So the best bet is to automate messages being sent out when certain triggers occur. Like a welcome email to a new message. Reminder for upcoming classes and memberships that are about to expire and an endless amount of other message options.
3. Messages Containing Forms
Merge automating tasks and messaging members by sending automatic messages that include forms that your members need to fill out and other various types of requirements for new and veteran members.
Optimize Your Operations
When your fitness management platform is doing the work for you, it frees up time for you to focus on coaching and training your members.
