Capture Guest Attention with Exciting On-Screen Content

Entertainment

Your loyal members deserve relevant, updated entertainment and information that creates a deeper connection to your club. With more than 300 channels to choose from, UPshow makes it easy to curate the right content on your screens. Pick from local news, regional sports or viral videos, and utilize your gym signage design to create the right atmosphere for your guests. 

Create next level digital signage for your gym without the high cost and headache of cable. Using UPshow’s dynamic software, you control exactly what appears on your screens throughout the different areas of your club. Choose the local football game for the weight room area while the front screens show class schedules and screens in the stretching area display social media posts with your gym’s hashtag. Most importantly, by eliminating cable, you stream only relevant content for your audience, never allowing your competitors’ commercials on your screens.

Intersperse your own gym marketing within your streaming entertainment options. Promote value-driving messaging around personal training, class sign-ups and social media posts throughout the time your guests are in your venue. Drive impactful and effective gym marketing in high-traffic locations on the screens people are already watching. 

Social Media

One of the most powerful ways to use digital signage for gyms is putting your members on the screen—make your members the stars. Gym enthusiasts love sharing their photos on their social media feeds. Since they’re already showing off for their friends, encourage them to use your gym’s hashtag and display those photos on screens in your venue. This is a great way to make your guests feel validated, engaged and encouraged. Plus, it’s free word-of-mouth promotion (and a no-cost addition to your gym’s marketing strategy). Today more than ever, people value word-of-mouth recommendations, and all of your guests’ social posts become an endorsement. Per a Talk Trigger report, 83% of Americans say positive reviews from friends or family influence their decision to purchase a service. That means social posts go a long way.

Gym marketing tactics that use social media ensure your guests feel like they’re part of a community, and that sense of community draws in others, too. That’s where digital signage for gyms makes all the difference.

Drive Behaviors that Drive Revenue

Personal Training

The cornerstone of many gym marketing plans is the promotion of personal training. Individualized training is a huge revenue driver for gyms, but getting guests to sign up for personal training can be difficult. Trainers don’t want to disrupt a guest’s workout, special offers are often forgotten and paper signs blend into the background. So what should gyms do to drive members to engage with personal trainers? Capitalize on the way people’s eyes naturally gravitate toward in-venue screens. These screens provide the perfect location to promote your personal trainers for maximum impact.

Use the digital signage in your gym to highlight trainer availability, specialities and current promotions. Consider using testimonials or success stories from members who worked with that trainer. Show before and after pictures to motivate your guests to respond. And, when your guests see a result they like, make sure they can take action at the moment of highest intent. Place a custom QR code on-screen to drive them to a trainer’s profile and commit to a session.  

Class Sign-Ups 

In the past decade, boutique fitness centers have had an undeniable impact on the larger fitness industry. These smaller facilities offer curated experiences and social interactions that promote a sense of community. Larger gyms know that to compete, they need to elevate the types of classes they offer and ensure those classes are well attended. Done right, these classes drive additional revenue while supporting member engagement and retention. 

Promoting these classes, encouraging members to attend and getting them to share those experiences are challenges for a modern gym marketing strategy. Digital signage for gyms serves as a key component in this strategy by catching members’ attention throughout their experience in your venue.  Display class information on prominent screens so guests know exactly what you’re offering and when you’re offering it. Use UPshow’s customizable QR codes to make it easy for guests to download schedules, reserve a class slot, share with friends or post on social media. This scalable technology solution by UPshow offers fitness executives the opportunity to deepen connections with members—without creating more work for employees.

Work (Out) Smarter, Not Harder

Measure Your Impact

Fitness fads come and go faster now than ever before. It’s hard to know what will interest your guests now versus six months from now. To reach membership quotas, retain clients and make overall better business decisions, gyms need to rely on rapid feedback from guests to align their short and long-term strategies for revenue growth.

Engaging members directly through existing digital signage for gyms provides both direct and indirect feedback so that you can make those better decisions. UPshow’s analytics suite and integration of QR codes into your gym marketing strategy enable you to learn more and pivot quickly. 

You can track entertainment channel utilization through UPshow’s platform. Turn off unengaging streams and only show the kinds of programming that resonates with your guests. The relevant content keeps eyes on screens and helps inform guests about revenue-driving activities, like personal trainers and class sign-ups.

Compare QR code scans on personal trainer profiles to see commonalities.  Determine the most popular trainers and learn what drives their success. Use that data for future coaching and hiring of trainers.
