Fit2Talk is an online Health and Fitness community. It's FREE to all,
allowing you to set up a profile to make friends, be healthy and look
great! There is also a wealth of information online to get stuck into
including recipes, workouts, therapy and nutrition help.
We aim to provide Personal Trainers with a
unique, modern approach to online listings. The
Fit2Talk PT page (Listings page) will allow
members to view your profile giving them an
insight into your character and services you
provide. If they like what they see then they
can contact you via email or your online profile.
We don’t just stop there though...........Fit2Talk
allows you to be in control of your own
marketing, but how?
How you can market yourself on Fit2Talk
•PT Profile: Your profile can be edited at any time
by you, with no extra cost. You can incorporate
links that lead members to testimonials, articles,
video, workouts or even your own website! The
hyperlinked section of your profile will also be fed
through to the PT page, meaning that you can
change your main advertisement at any time.
Once you have joined our online PT listings you
can instantly start promoting yourself throughout
the website. We differ from a static advertising
scheme by letting you actively increase
awareness of your Fit2Talk profile. Ways of which
you can do this are listed below.
•Post and comment: Fit2Talk is designed with you in mind. To help you connect
and help members, we have allowed you to post your own blogs, videos, groups,
articles and more, which can all link back to your profile. These posts can receive
comments and ratings, so make them unique and interesting!
Your blog.......Your business.......Your life!
How can I interact with the users?
Fit2talk member profiles state their current goal and progression, as well as giving
you an insight into there training and lifestyle. You will be able to use the
information to find prospective clients. To ensure that you don’t waste your time
searching through our members one by one, we have added a friends in your
area box on your profile and the people search section.
•Contacting members: As a unique feature, personal trainers can message
members via their comment wall or privately through their online inbox. Just like
•Creating leads: You can create groups for your current and new clients to
socialise in. You could even turn this group into a Q&A forum, getting an insight
into what our members really want. The idea is to create an interactive page,
where your name and services are mentioned frequently to create awareness of
your PT profile.
Remember: When interacting around the site it’s all about creating your own
stamp! Provide useful information on all the platforms (e.g. Video, blogs, diets) and
attract users to you!
How will clients know about my profile / listing?
Aside from the promoting of yourself mentioned in the previous pages, we have
ensured that the Fit2Talk members are aware of our online PT’s. The main thing
being our “Fit2Talk Online Personal Trainers” are here to help!
•Promoting Awareness: We have placed little reminders around the site that are
linked to the PT Page. These can be found on the sign up page, workout page
(PT Page entrance) and most importantly on everyone's profiles!
•PT Badge: In addition to us setting up a reminder on peoples profiles, we will
supply you with a PT badge (shown below). This badge allows our members to
know that you are a certified PT with our backing.
•Gym Listings: Underneath every gym listing we show all the current PT’s at that
gym. This is displayed as a photo of you, linked to your profile. Now when
members look to join a gym they can see you and contact you before they even
sign up. So remember first impressions are everything, setup your profile to make

Additional advantages when using Fit2Talk
All the great help Fit2Talk offers you in the form of promoting yourself and
creating awareness of your business have been created by Personal Trainers, for
Personal Trainers. We know the industry and how important it is to achieve a fast
client base, so we have looked outside the box and here are some extra ideas
we have come up with.
Answer Phone: Don’t ever miss a potential client ever again. Your Fit2Talk profile is
available 24/7, so by setting up a simple answer phone message like shown
“Sorry I can’t get to the phone right now, but if you would like to leave
a message or alternatively visit my PT Profile at Fit2Talk.com”.
This way your potential client can see who you are, the service your provide,
testimonials and prices. This can be linked on your profile as mentioned before
and displayed using videos or simple blog format.
•Current clients: Get your current clients to help promote you by adding
comments to your wall, create a group for your clients to socialise in. Set up diets
and workouts (These can have videos attached) to direct your clients to when
not training with you, remember results talk!
•PT development: We have linked up with organisations that specialise in further
training. Courses include PT business sense, functional training, advanced nutrition
and sport massage therapy.
How we promote Fit2Talk
We are currently undertaking a marketing campaign to boost members and
traffic through the site. We are going national, but we are currently focusing on
the Merseyside area. So lets take a look at how we are getting people on board.
• Leaflet drops: When ever we visit a gym and secure their listing we flyer drop
around their area. This notifies the public about the free information that we give
out, which is pretty hard to ignore!
• Gyms: Once a gym signs up to our listing they are given advertising to distribute
to their members, this way their members get the most out of their training and
get to know about the PT’s at the gym.
•You the PT: It is in your interest to distribute leaflets (We supply upon sign up) and
promote use of Fit2Talk within your gym. This is a secondary point of sale and if
your not so keen on going up to people initially it can be a great point of
• Magazines / Newspapers: We are currently in contact with all the local
papers and magazines, including the Echo (Health & Fitness section) and
will be publishing our press release throughout Merseyside.
• Online campaign: The internet is by far the best way to spread the news
about anything. Fit2Talk uses a vast number of social media sites
(Facebook, twitter, Reddit etc.) and article publishing sites (Ezine
articles,article base,Buzzle etc.) to spread the word about our free health
and fitness community.
In addition to this we have numerous online partnerships driving
customers our way and have optimised our site to get the best out of
search engines like Google.
So what’s the cost?
Well you would have thought since we were doing all this for you and giving you
the chance to gain new clients that the cost would be high, but your wrong.
•Firstly: We do request that every PT actively promotes us through the leaflets we
provide, this helps both of us. Also any externally linked pages on your profile,
must also have a return link (Purely for SEO purposes).
•Monthly rate: £10 per month, for 12 months, through standing order. Their is also
a one off additional setup fee of £10. The monthly fee is reviewed every 2
months and can be increased depending on Fit2Talk’s traffic.
•Annual fixed rate: £80 one off fee, paid via cash or cheque. This payment will
cover you for a full 12 months and no further payment apart from a £10 setup
fee will be charged for that year.
