After our interview, Steve realized that he has even more stuff to share that he forgot to mention during our interview.
He took the time to type this out and give you some additional ways to get clients.

5 New Way Out-Of-The-Box Client Getting Strategies
Hey, Steve Hochman here –
… And today I’m gonna reveal 5 of the top way out-of-the-box client getting strategies that are working for boot camps right now.
#5 – The Fundraiser Method
This strategy is perfect if you are a Fit Body Boot Camp owner, or own an indoor fitness boot camp. But it also works for outdoor boot camps and in-studio personal training programs.
The concept is simple. You supply local businesses your plastic gift cards for them to sell to raise money for their organization.
They get to keep 100% of the profits.
In other words, let’s say that your plastic gift cards are worth $100.
The business that needs to raise money can sell them for full price or at a deep discount, like ten or twenty bucks.
Now that you are helping the local business raise money, you are getting free distribution of you plastic gift cards right in the hands of people who are willing to pay for them.
And because people are “paying” for them, they will value them more too, which means they will be more likely to use them.
Here are five local businesses that I am currently using the Fundraiser Method to generate tons of clients with:
1) Gymnastic Centers
Gymnastics centers work great because they constantly have to raise money for traveling to competitions, and they have an army of kids and moms to sell your cards.
Plus, they have the experience of selling candy bars and stuff like that to raise money.
2) Cheerleading Centers
Cheerleading centers have also been great match-ups for the Fundraiser Method because they need to raise money for competitions and traveling as well.
And just like gymnastic centers, they are jam packed with moms and energetic cute kids to sell the crap out of your plastic gift cards.
3) High School Athletic Programs
High school athletic programs need to raise money for their teams. Have you ever had a high school freshman football player in your neighborhood knock on your door and ask you to buy advertising space to help raise money for their team?
Call your local high school and say you want to donate $5000 dollars (500 $100 plastic cards) to the athletic dept. and you need to speak to the president of the “booster club.”
Preschools work really well because moms, who have money to spend on expensive preschools, walk in 5 days a week to drop their kids off.
They won’t sell your plastic gift cards door to door, but you can set up a display for a week or two with your plastic gift cards in front of a sign that says, “Please help us raise money to buy a new (fill in the bank) for the children. Take a $100 plastic gift card to (your fitness program) and leave a donation of $10 dollars or more at the front desk.”
5) Little League Baseball Organizations
And finally, Little League baseball organizations are great sources for the Fundraiser Method.
They will both have their kids sell your plastic gift cards door-to-door and also allow you to set up a table at their fields and sell the cards as well. Sometimes you can even get them to have volunteers to sit at the table at their games and sell the cards for you while you’re home kicking back 🙂
I know Steve has 5 strategies, but I am going to ask him to stop there. I will get him to return tomorrow with the other part for you.
