New Member Referrals

Your Members creating more New Members

The clearest (and least expensive path) acquiring new members is through your existing members. You already focus on creating a great experience. And that’ll prompt a small percentage of members to recommend your gym to their network. But keeping referrals top of mind for your members is important. According to Nielsen, people are 4 times more likely to buy a product when it’s referred by a friend. Member referrals provide the greatest outcome, with the greatest ROI and the least amount of marketing dollars spent. The concept is simple: The more your members are your promoters, the more new members you’ll earn.
