Are you a class based microgym, fitness studio, yoga studio, pilates, or even martial arts facility? Do you use Mindbody Online? Are you using a bonified PAGE for your business’ Facebook presence?
If you answered yes to all three questions you are in for a special treat! (If you answered yes to the first two, but not the third then read this post I wrote last week and get your gym’s FB profile converted to a Page and you’ll be good to go).
I am a founding team member in a company called Skilled Athlete, which includes several former Expedia developers. Over the past few months we have been working on a suite of social media and CRM (customer relationship management) tools for gyms, most of which can plug right into your existing MindBody account. We have several very cool tools in the works and we will be releasing them as they get developed. Some of them will be free, like this one, and some won’t. (Skilled Athlete will only be charging for tools that will have a direct positive influence on your bottom line!).
This first one is a Class Schedule App for your Facebook page. Now your clients can find your class schedule simply by navigating to your Facebook page and clicking the “class schedule” link below your business’ page photo.
Then voila! Your class schedule appears!
Clients can click on the class times to show the instructor for the class as well as “reserve” a spot in that class if your gym has that feature enabled in MBO.
If you’d like to check out the Schedule App in action you can see it live on our NorCal Facebook page here.
When you’re ready to deploy your own Mindbody schedule on your FB page just head over to Skilled Athlete. The set up process is pretty simple and again it’s free!
Oh, and one more thing. If you aren’t yet using a business management solution like Mindbody Online, then you might want to head there first!
