4 SMS marketing templates for gyms and fitness studios
An effective way gyms can use SMS marketing to engage their member are with personalized landing pages sent via text that inspire and motivate. Here are some examples:
People won’t enroll in your classes if they don’t know they exist. To encourage participation, announce new classes and schedules via SMS. Keep members aware of schedule changes or instructor substitutions to avoid surprises when they show up for their favorite class.
An interesting new class may be the push your members need to get back into the gym.
New instructor announcements
Members want access to quality instructors. If you have a new teacher, introduce them to your community through an SMS message that includes a link to a dedicated landing page. Easily edit this mobile-optimized page to feature a photo of the instructor, bio, favorite drills, and class schedule.
Customize your landing page with your own photos and logos, or access a library of pre-designed and professional landing page templates.
Reminders and notices
Even if customers are aware of their monthly dues, it’s best to remind them of the bill once it’s been sent. They will be grateful for the effort. If their payment information has changed, they can also inform you ahead of time.
Here's an example of a personalized courtesy SMS you could send to your members:
Direct users to a mobile landing page that includes their name, bill amount, due date, and a button to "Pay Now". Simply connect the button to a secure payment portal and direct your members there. The fully customizable template below is a perfect choice for this purpose:
This template can be used to send any number of reminders or notices including late payment notifications, birthday wishes, or a reminder to book a free personal training session. Using personalized reminders will make your members feel appreciated, and encourage them to keep their membership current.
Customers will more likely see and respond to bill notices and payment reminders sent via SMS than they will those sent to their email. Not only will you cut down on late payers, but you'll keep your staff from spending valuable time making collection phone calls.
Increase loyalty with this template by helping members reach their fitness goals. One way you can do this is by sending inspirational reminders via text and direct them to a landing page crafted to match their interests. Include a message such as "Remember to reach your goal this week" or "Get outside this weekend!" to motivate them and show you're taking a personal interest.
