The Easiest Way to Nail Your Fitness Studio Presale: AI Lead Engagement

April 4, 2024

So you’re opening a new fitness studio – congratulations!  The presale or NSO (new store opening) is a critical time. For a successful opening, you need to generate excitement, build your member base, and hit your targets (looking at you, 200 presale memberships!). But with a million things on your to-do list, generating leads, selling memberships and booking classes can feel overwhelming.

Did you know that you can automate the process with advanced AI?

How AI Can Supercharge Your Fitness Studio Presale

Imagine an assistant that tirelessly works 24/7 to nurture leads, answer questions, and schedule appointments – all while you focus on your fitness studio grand opening. That’s the magic of AI lead engagement.

Here’s what it can do for your gym opening:

24/7 Lead Engagement: Never miss a potential member again! AI handles inquiries around the clock, keeping conversations flowing before and after opening day. Whether your leads are coming from paid ads, Facebook, Instagram or other digital channel, AI SMS texts a lead immediately after a form fill and allows the lead to purchase a membership or sign up for a class right in the text thread.

Automated Follow-up: Not all leads claim a gym grand opening promo in the first touch. AI SMS follows-up with additional texts, ensuring that the prospect has many opportunities to claim the offer.

Book-by-Text: Make class sign-ups and membership purchases dead simple. Leads can schedule consultations or purchase founding memberships directly through text message.

Streamlined Communications: Consolidate conversations from various channels (paid ads, landing pages and social media) into one inbox, making it easy to manage all presale inquiries in one place. See conversation history for each lead and track results.

Booking Software Integration: With booking platform syncing, offers claimed through SMS are registered in your booking platform. You won’t have to manually enter them in your calendar. Allowing bookings to flow in via SMS, phone calls, web chat and online booking is the best way to reach a 200-member target before opening day.

The Secret Weapon for Fitness New Store Opening Success

Not all AI is created equal. For your gym presale to thrive, you need a system specifically designed for the fitness industry. Here’s what to look for:

Advanced AI: Go beyond basic chatbots. Your AI should be trained on actual fitness client conversations. It will understand fitness terminology and answer questions about class formats, membership options, and studio amenities.

Human-like Conversations: Advanced conversational AI engages in complex conversations in a natural manner. In fact, many people think they are texting with a real person

Customization: Load your FAQs so the AI can answer hundreds of questions about your fitness studio. This includes membership options, policies, services, team members – even parking instructions.

Continual Improvement: A full-service AI solution like TrueLark has a team of AI trainers that review issues where the chatbot gets stuck. Then they “train” the AI to answer the question or resolve the issue the next time it comes up.

Seamless Integration: Ensure the AI system integrates with your existing software, like your studio management or appointment booking platform.

Brand Consistency: Tailor the AI’s responses to reflect your voice and branding. It will blend seamlessly with your overall gym NSO messaging and brand identity.
