Our digital marketing professionals help personal trainers attract new audiences and boost brand awareness with paid search advertising, social prospecting, influencer outreach, SEO strategy, and white-hat link building.

Let's talk about what our internet advertisers can do for your fitness companies! We often provide comprehensive online advertising campaigns to smaller fitness companies, but we can also augment the marketing department of your large corporation to fill in missing skill sets.

What is Website Advertising for Personal Trainers?

Simply put, digital marketing for personal trainers is a way to advertise products and services to personal trainers through online channels like websites, search engines, social media, email, or mobile apps.

Many personal trainers think digital marketing is just another term for search engine optimization or paid advertising. While both of those services are used in internet advertising, neither fully explain the depth of a modern online advertising program for personal trainers.

Modern website marketing plans often include dozens of digital marketing strategies, all working together to help your fitness company improve visibility and conversions.

For example, the best personal trainer digital advertising services will include strategies to:

  • Make your fitness company digital assets (apps, sales funnels, websites) more visible through search engine optimization, social media advertising, affiliate marketing, or paid advertising.
  • Improve your fitness company revenue with landing pages, sales funnels, and conversion rate optimization.
  • Track how visitors interact with your digital assets to help you better understand areas of improvement, retargeting opportunities, or conversion rates.
  • Show the expertise, authority, and trust of your fitness company with content marketing, video production, backlink building, reviews, and social proof.
  • Build and nurture relationships through email marketing, SMS marketing, and social media management.

SEO Plans for Fitness Companies

Achieving a first-page search placement for competitive keywords requires a comprehensive search engine optimization strategy as part of your overall digital marketing plan. This means reviewing your off-page, technical, and on-page search engine optimization since all three aspects of SEO work together to show value to search engines.

As we bring on new companies in the personal trainer field for digital marketing, we commonly discover issues related to website speed, content quality, and the backlink quality. Technical, on-page, and offsite search engine optimization strategies can be employed to address these concerns and improve your SEO. Let's explore more about each of these fitness company SEO plans:

  • Technical SEO encompasses page performance, website security, XML sitemaps, website architecture, structured data, Open Graph tags, and broken pages, among other factors. These impact how Google reads and traverses your content, and how visitors interact with your personal trainer website. You typically need the assistance of a website developer to improve technical SEO issues since they are often related to the platform or template used on your personal trainer site. Our in-house team of website developers is proficient in popular platforms such as WordPress and Shopify.
  • On-Page search engine optimization includes factors such as images, keyword research, content silos, content writing, internal linking, competitive analysis, frequently asked questions, page titles, meta tags, and images. By improving these components of your on-page search engine optimization, you can enable search engines to gain a deeper understanding of the worth of your content and acknowledge your fitness company as a reputable source on the subject matter. Moreover, it can aid in enhancing significant metrics like "time on site" for your visitors, which indicates to search engines that you provided something beneficial to the searcher. Never underestimate the value and importance of content creation within your fitness company internet marketing plan.
  • Offsite search engine optimization encompasses various factors that determine the quality and naturalness of your backlink profile, including the number of backlinks and referring domains, the relevance and authority of those backlinks, link velocity, social media signals, and more. By establishing natural backlinks to your website and internal pages, you can communicate to search engines that your website and content are reputable and deserving of recognition from third-party sources.

The important takeaway is to understand you can't focus on just one or two areas of SEO in the digital advertising strategy of your fitness company. While having a fast website is crucial, having no quality backlinks or useful content will probably never get your fitness company to the first page of search results, except for rare instances. The same is true for other scenarios where two areas of SEO have been optimized, but one was neglected. For a comprehensive online advertising strategy that will keep your fitness company ahead of the competition, it's important to give equal attention to all areas of the search engine optimization checklist.

Fitness Company Backlink Authority Building Strategies

We've already briefly discussed the importance of building authoritative links in off-page SEO, but it's worth mentioning again since fitness companies often don't understand this area of search engine optimization.

Large retailers in product-specific searches and long-standing service providers in local search results are often the top results for competitive keywords and long-tail phrases on the first page of search results. If you further review the exact pages of these search results you will often find the number of backlinks to those pages is far greater than those to your relevant fitness company web pages. That is because search engines use backlinks to determine how authoritative your fitness company website and content are on a particular subject.

To enhance the placement of your web pages, it's essential to acquire quality backlinks to both your homepage and other internal pages through white-hat search engine optimization backlink authority building campaigns. It is critical to see this as a long-term endeavor for the digital advertising strategy of your fitness company. It's important not to get overly excited for a few weeks and build dozens of backlinks, then abandon it for months or years. Instead, you should view this as a long-term commitment for your internet advertising strategy. Skipping the long-term commitment of building high-quality backlinks will hinder your chances of appearing on the first page of search results. You need to establish a link-building plan that will provide consistent and steady growth of quality backlinks from relevant websites and social media platforms. Overdoing exact-match phrases, purchasing excessive backlinks from PBNs, or engaging in black-hat link-building techniques will only harm the natural state of your backlink profile.

Our website advertising services for fitness companies involve the use of several white-hat link-building techniques, which include:

  • Utilizing the “Skyscraper Technique” to build a bigger, better version of a ranked content article from a competitive fitness company.
  • Crafting thorough articles and securing a spot on external websites as a guest author, complete with a link to your fitness company website, can be an effective marketing strategy.
  • Reaching out to high-authority websites related to personal trainers to suggest content improvements to existing articles that may have become outdated, or didn't cover a specific topic relevant to you.
  • Including your website in directories that are relevant to your industry can help expand your online presence, using valid NAP citations (Name, Address, Phone).

Fitness Company Online Reputation Management (ORM) Tactics

Your online reputation is an important trust factor search engines use to determine rank positions, and your target audience uses it to make purchasing decisions. The significance of online reputation is ubiquitous, encompassing various types of purchases and decisions, including the selection of a service provider, online shopping, and the hiring of fitness companies. People love reading about the positive experiences, and sometimes even more about negative experiences, that others had with your fitness company.

For local area service companies, we can help you develop a review generation program within your online marketing to increase the rate at which past customers leave reviews for your fitness company. This typically requires gathering feedback on various review collection websites, such as Google My Business, UpCity, Yellow Pages, Angi, Yelp, and others.

If you run an ecommerce-focused fitness company, we can help with the collection of product reviews and company reviews. In the ecommerce industry, obtaining reviews that cover the quality of your products and the customer service provided by your fitness company is vital. Online shoppers seek confirmation that the item they are buying meets their requirements in terms of quality or usefulness. Moreover, they need to be certain that you will provide prompt delivery and exceptional support to address any issues they may have post-purchase.

For the reputation of professional service providers, such as doctors or attorneys, we can help establish protocols within your website marketing plan for the collection of testimonials to ensure prospects always see a positive image of your personal trainers. This entails producing reviews, overseeing online reputation, mending impaired online reputation, executing survey campaigns, and enhancing social media presence. SEO can be leveraged to refine the top search results on the first page, which can enhance the online reputation of your fitness company.

The risk of ignoring your online reputation is the loss of long-term business, which often isn't noticed until significant damage has been accumulated. Regain command of your online reputation today to ensure that you always present a more favorable image than your competitors.

Content Marketing Strategies for Fitness Companies

Generating and distributing pertinent blog posts, instructional videos, case studies, white papers, and other digital media through content marketing is a standard approach used by most fitness companies to captivate and retain a highly-engaged audience. This digital advertising technique enables your fitness company to position itself as a thought leader in the industry, and also assists in gaining a stronghold on organic search results and capturing the attention of your intended audience.

When your target customers begin to identify your fitness company as the source of valuable advice or guidance you will find it is easier to guide them through your sales funnel. We assist internet marketing customers who are personal trainers in developing an appropriate content marketing plan for their fitness company.

It is important to identify your target audience before starting a content marketing service. This will help you understand the best media format for the content, whether that be informative blog posts, detailed case studies, informal whitepapers, best-in-class listicles, or drip email campaigns. This will also enable you to decide on the most effective delivery method for your content, which could be through social media platforms, search engine results, or other mediums.

We often help implement content marketing tactics for personal trainers that involve blog content, infographics, podcasts, videos, email campaigns, whitepapers, case studies, surveys, webinars, checklists, listicles, and lead magnets. The case study method is our most liked approach, as it is an influential tool that showcases our digital marketing expertise as a service provider. If implemented correctly for your fitness company, these methods can all be effective ways of marketing content.

Social Media Ads Tactics for Fitness Companies

The internet advertising technique of social ads involves paying to run ads on various social platforms, such as Facebook, Twitter, TikTok, LinkedIn, and Facebook. By allowing you to choose from specific interests, behaviors, and demographics, these social media channels offer a fast and efficient means of connecting with your target audience. However, the downside can be the added cost of setting up the campaigns, creating landing pages, building out sales funnels, and performing conversion rate optimization to ensure the PPC advertising function as a proper lead generation or sales generation tool for your fitness company.

By utilizing the data resources of social media platforms, fitness companies can precisely target their intended audience to provide customized content based on factors such as demographics, behaviors, interests, and more. While this is an enormous opportunity for most established fitness companies, it can be an expensive lesson for businesses that aren't ready to take full advantage of social media marketing.

Our support involves aiding fitness companies in constructing indispensable sales funnels and lead generation mechanisms, which empower them to leverage their social ads to the fullest. We also recommend putting in place plans for conversion optimization and retargeting within these online advertising campaigns, both of which will help improve the return on ad spend you see within your campaigns. Let's not forget to mention the freshness of your ad creatives. It is important to be aware of ad decay and ad fatigue when running social media marketing services for fitness companies to prevent campaigns from becoming stagnant and suffering from decreased performance.

Search Ads Game Plans for Fitness Companies

The use of search advertising in internet advertising involves paid advertising being run on search engines like Google and Bing. Google Ads and Bing Ads provide an efficient and expeditious way of connecting your fitness company to a responsive audience that is actively seeking your products or services. The downside is the cost of setting up an effective and scalable paid advertising campaign for your fitness company, which often involves the creation of landing pages or sales funnels that are optimized for conversion opportunities.

We support fitness companies of all sizes in developing the essential landing pages and funnels required to boost leads and drive revenue, which in turn makes paid advertising a cost-effective digital advertising approach. Our recommendation for any search engine marketing service is to establish a plan for retargeting and conversion rate optimization to boost your return on investment.

Developing Revenue Funnels for Fitness Companies

A sales funnel, or purchase funnel, is the visual representation of journeys taken by customers with your fitness company. The illustration of a sales funnel, which is often referred to as a marketing funnel or revenue funnel, looks just like a physical funnel you'd use to pour a liquid into a container. The top of the funnel is always larger because it illustrates the large number of potential customers that might interact with your fitness company. The funnel narrows at the bottom to represent the various exit points within the sales process. Naturally, the bottom of the funnel is the smallest part because it represents the number of people who converted through the generation of a lead or the sale of a product.

The development of a sales funnel for fitness companies is more difficult than the explanation of its concepts. For example, some of the most successful sales funnels produce millions of dollars of value each day for their owners. To build a funnel that produces value for your fitness company, you must put thought into the goal of the sales funnel and the type of sales funnel you want to implement.

There are numerous types of sales funnels, including self-liquidating funnels, automated webinar funnels, lead magnet funnels, self-liquidating funnels, automated webinar funnels, lead magnet funnels, and dozens of others to consider for your fitness company. When you work with one of our personal trainer-focused internet advertising experts, you will have an experienced website marketer to bounce ideas off to help you determine the best type of revenue funnel for your fitness company. Alternatively, if you don't have an interest in being involved in the process, we can research more about your fitness company to determine the best funnels to explore and test within your website marketing plan.

CRO for Fitness Companies

There is almost no reason to neglect conversion rate optimization within personal trainer digital marketing plans. This is a critical aspect of any type of internet marketing for personal trainers since it directly impacts the ability of the marketing service to provide value for the fitness company paying for the marketing service.

Boosting conversion rates can have a huge impact on your bottom line. Before you pursue a CRO plan for your fitness company, it is important to understand what it is, how it works, and how to evaluate the service. This is a time-intensive process that involves plenty of iterative research and testing. What makes it most difficult is the CRO tactics that work for one personal trainer might not work for another personal trainer.

The most common personal trainer CRO plans include reducing form fields on contact forms, testing different call-to-action phrases, creating attractive headlines, implementing a sense of urgency, fixing mobile website glitches, improving page speed, adding exit-intent popups, defining value for the visitor, and adding trust and social proof signals.

True conversion rate optimization for personal trainers can become much more complex. To really dive into CRO, we must fully understand your business offer, your competitors, the strengths and weaknesses of your value proposition, how visitors are currently interacting with your digital assets, the online reputation of your personal trainers, and many other factors.

Email Marketing Game Plans for Fitness Companies

You can use email marketing within a digital strategy to improve brand awareness, generate website traffic, grow sales and revenue, bring awareness to your social profiles, engage past personal trainers, and gain valuable information about your target audience.

We help our digital marketing fitness company clients use Mail Chimp, Campaign Monitor, and Constant Contact within their email marketing plans. These are robust email marketing tools to create subscriber lists, segment your audience, and even develop email marketing drip services.

The most important part of email marketing is developing a plan to increase your subscribers. We help email marketing fitness company customers build and nurture their email marketing lists by implementing email collection opportunities within referral programs, affiliate programs, lead magnets, exit-intent popups, checkout processes, lead magnets, and numerous other methods.

Lead Gen for Fitness Companies

For local service providers, the most important part of an inbound marketing program is lead generation. Not everything can be sold on the internet. For a lot of products and services, a phone conversation or in-person conversation is needed to close the sale. For these types of business industries, lead generation tactics are going to be critical.

There are many types of lead generation strategies to consider, all of which have been tried and implemented by our website advertising team, for personal trainers and other professionals, at some point in the past. The most common lead gen plans for personal trainers include the creation of helpful content, retargeting past website visitors, nurturing past contacts with email marketing, engaging visitors with live chat, developing free tools for visitors to use, creating referral programs and affiliate programs, creating video content that can be shared online, setting up free webinars for visitors to attend, or offering helpful downloadable content in a lead magnet.

For most personal trainer digital advertising services where lead generation is a primary goal, our team will develop and implement one or more lead gen strategies in your digital assets to test what works best for your fitness company.

Video Marketing for Fitness Companies

As a comprehensive online advertising agency for personal trainers, we have our own in-house video production and video marketing department. This has been extremely helpful for fitness company content marketing tactics that required original video assets. More importantly, we've used our video production department for the creation of video ads on YouTube and video marketing within Facebook Ads campaigns. There are many great applications for video production within your digital advertising strategy for your fitness company. You can use videos to demonstrate unique products, teach new concepts, and improve visitor duration. You can also implement videos within internet advertising plans to bring life to paid campaigns.

Why You Should Invest in Online Advertising for Your Fitness Company

For fitness companies that rely on selling products or services, marketing is an eventual consideration to grow revenue. There are various justifications to weigh website advertising against other, more traditional, marketing approaches for your fitness company. Let's go over some of the great reasons to implement our digital marketing plan within your fitness company:

  • Digital marketing is frequently more cost-effective for personal trainers than other marketing methods since it can begin with a small investment and then be expanded as success is evaluated.
  • By utilizing useful analytics tools such as Google Analytics, you can obtain more comprehensive data on the number of visitors who engaged with your brand, the duration of their engagement with your marketing efforts, and whether they returned to your site in the days, weeks, or months following their initial interaction.
  • These days, individuals are consistently utilizing their phones, tablets, and desktop computers. Why not select a marketing style and channel that can track your target audience wherever they go?
  • Digital advertising offers much more versatility than print marketing, billboard ads, television commercials, or radio ads, which are not as easy to update.
  • Among marketing techniques, internet advertising for personal trainers offers the most opportunity for user engagement. Good luck getting people to comment, like, or share any non-digital advertisements you run for your personal trainers.

6 Key Focus Points for Website Success

How to Develop a Online Marketing Program for Fitness Companies

It is essential to devise a plan with specific business goals that can be measured prior to launching your online advertising campaign for your fitness company. Ensuring that everyone involved in the website advertising service understands the ultimate goal is crucial in order to avoid spending time on ideas that will not have a positive effect on your fitness company.

1.) Identify your target audience

With a clear set of business goals in place for your personal trainers, you can move on to identifying a target audience. Understanding the people you are trying to reach is essential. This helps you tailor your fitness company digital marketing efforts to platforms your audience engages in and that you use messaging that resonates with your target audience.

2.) Find out what your audience needs

With your business goals and target customer established, you can now make an informed decision about the needs and search intent of your audience. By doing so, you can ensure that your personal trainers concentrate on the correct keywords for your digital advertising, and that your content marketing plans align with the demands of your audience.

3.) Start slower moving services sooner

If you plan to incorporate search engine optimization in the digital strategy of your fitness company, make that your first priority. In terms of online advertising strategies, search engine optimization typically takes the longest to gain traction for fitness companies and other organizations. The improvements you make to your website, your content, and your backlinks can take weeks or months for search engines to fully recognize and have an impact on your placements.

4.) Build out quality landing pages or funnels

This is a good time to consider paid advertising for your fitness company website, or other digital assets. Creating a landing page or sales funnel is an important step to take before directing paid traffic to your fitness company home page, product page, or service page. Most PPC advertising campaigns for fitness companies that have high bounce rates and low conversion rates make the mistake of sending traffic to a page that isn't optimized to convert a cold audience. Effective lead generation for fitness companies often involves the use of splash pages and sales funnels to guide visitors towards the desired marketing outcome.

5.) Set up automated email sequences to retarget potential customers

Once you've established your tactics for driving traffic to your fitness company website, it's essential to consider how to effectively communicate with those visitors beyond their initial visit. Not everyone who visits your website, landing page, or sales funnel will convert on the first visit. One should explore options to create an email marketing list, give SMS alerts for new promotions, or establish tracking pixels to retarget people who recently browsed through your website.

6.) Make testing a regular process

With all of these digital marketing tactics set up for your fitness company, you can move into the testing and optimization phase. This involves constantly measuring the success of your personal trainer-focused campaigns, searching for areas of improvement, and even trying new ideas that you read about in case studies or white papers. It is essential to continuously optimize your fitness company internet advertising plan for conversion rates.
