Starting your Personal Trainer Business? Get a VA
You’re going to start your Personal Trainer business! Congratulations!
Starting up a personal training business – any business, really – can be a large and overwhelming task. There’s a lot to consider before you launch your business.
Working with a Virtual Assistant can help you with the setup of one part of your business, or help you from start to launch. Your choice!
Things To Do Before You Launch Your Business
We’ve all heard that a business plan is important, but where do you start creating one for your business?
It can be time consuming and a little overwhelming, but many business owners will tell you that it is critical to the success of your business!
There are many (read: thousands) of articles online about writing your business plan – where do you start?
You work with a Virtual Assistant. Someone that has experience in writing, researching and crafting the perfect business plan for you and your business goals.
Admin & Finance
Once your business plan is in place, it’s time for the admin and finance setup of your personal trainer business.
You’ll need to register your business, so that you can operate legally. You will also need to setup your business bank account and deal with the tax obligations of your registered business.
You will also need professional liability insurance.
Researching the best options for registering your business and choosing the right one for you can take time.
A Virtual Assistant can do all this research for you and present you with the best options. All you need to do is choose!
Branding & Marketing
Branding and marketing for a new business can be a tricky thing.
What kind of logo do you want? Which colours are best suited to your business? Where will you advertise your personal trainer services? Will you use business cards?
It can be easy to get sucked into a design wormhole – playing around with font pairings, colour schemes and logo designs. But this costs you valuable time and energy in setting up your business.
While you focus on finding clients, your Virtual Assistant can quickly and easily design a striking and impressive brand identity for your business.
One of the most important things you need as a personal trainer is an online presence. A website, social media and a blog.
You’d think simply training your clients would be the top priority, right? While that’s true, it’s important to showcase your business online, portraying your skill as a trainer, as well as your personal and business values.
If you’re not sure how to get your business online, ask your Virtual Assistant. They can build you a website, write great and captivating content and keep your social media platforms buzzing with updates.
Equipment & Software
What kind of equipment do you need to start your personal trainer business? What about software?
Comparing prices and packages for equipment and software can be tedious and a time suck.
All this research can be done by your Virtual Assistant, who will present the best options for your business.
The biggest thing you need to worry about when starting your personal trainer business is… your CLIENTS!
It sounds silly, right? But so many business owners get stuck on the nitty-gritty details, like branding and setting up their social media. When they launch, they don’t have any clients to work with!
While your Virtual Assistant gets busy with all the other aspects of your business, you can focus on your strategy for getting clients to book with you.
Your VA can also help you build your client acquisition and retention strategy, booking systems and marketing plan.
You’re ready to launch your business!
It may seem like a Virtual Assistant is an unnecessary expense when you’re starting out. But working with a VA can save you time, money and energy in the long run.
Virtual Assistants are here to help you grow your business and make your life a little easier.
